Dorkbot SoCal's overlord emeritus has moved to Vancouver, but will
return to us through the power of videoconferencing to narrate his
travelogue of the Chinese maker/hacker culture including the 2014
Shenzhen Maker Faire, Seeed Studio, theChaihuo Hackerspace in

cockroaches :)

Matt & Kyle have created an awesome 8ft long carbon fiber staff

energy circling around the user.


Thomas Edwards

Thomas will talk about how you can use 3D capture software such as
123D Catch to make your own digital holograms with Zebra Imaging.


Jennifer Fox

Conserving freshwater is one of those seemingly constant struggles,
especially with a human population exceeding seven billion. There are
many ways to optimize irrigation systems and reduce water consumption;
one of these ways is to install a soil moisture sensor. Jennifer will
describe how to build a Raspberry Pi Soil Moisture Sensor.

See you all there!!!
