Dorkbot 40: Future’s So Bright

-dustin younse-
It’s going to be a busy year preparing for the singularity. Face the future with your Dorkbot friends and some lovely libations.
  • Clay Shortall & Chris Chang – Shadow Puppet – Kinect motion sensors, processing, and Arduino code power an interactive screen of spinning circular panels.
  • Eric Jacobs – SARGE, the Slightly Anachronistic Retro Gaming Environment – a homemade development game console that brings NES and Famicom classics back to life with a modern twist.
  • Matt Steinke – Octant – a mechanical band.

Dorkbot 40: Future’s so Bright
at ND Austin, 501 Brushy Street 78702 [map]
Monday Jan. 28th. Doors at 7, talks at 7:30. Open dork to follow till they run out of beer or they kick us out. Whichever comes first.

RSVP: via Facebook (not required)

Enter ND Austin through the North Door, off the alley. They have a full bar and a pizza kitchen. Two of the many reasons why we love them.

Dorkbot is — as always — a free event. Open to all ages.

Overlordly yours,

P.S. - Just as a quick note, there is a new Meetup in town that sounds pretty rad, the Austin Hardware Startup Meetup (http://www.atxhw.com/).  The inaugural meeting is next Thursday, January 24th, so if we waited to tell you about it at our next event, you'd totally miss it!

From the organizer Ryan:
"Austin has a large and growing startup community with no end of great events and meetups.  We also have a more than our share of established and newly founded hardware startups.  It’s time for a mashup.

The purpose of this group is to bring together folks interested in building a business around physical products – to grow the Austin hardware community, raise awareness of hardware startups and resources, and learn from each other and those who have done it before."
