Maker Revolution – Gathering Round the *MakerBot* Campfire
Zach and I had a great time at the Maker Revolution event at Microsoft Labs in Boston over the weekend. We didn’t know it, but it turns out that sitting around a table with folks while the MakerBot Cupcake CNC is puttering away and doing its thing and making objects appear where there were none before is really a great community activity! One of the gatherers mentioned that it felt like a geek campfire and it did!
We printed airplane wings, dodecahedrons, and chess pieces. Then I gave a talk about rapid prototyping. We met cool people who are doing cool things. Big thanks to everyone who shared their passion with us at this event.
If you have an event that might benefit from having a MakerBot at a table and listening to a talk about the future of rapid prototyping and manufacturing, feel free to give me a shout at [email protected] We’ve talked at Microsoft Labs in Boston and we’re going to be giving a talk at Google later this month and it’s likely we’ll be talking at the NY Tech meetup in June. We’re also gearing up for Maker Faire in San Francisco where we’ll be bringing some machines and showing people how to make stuff with them.
