MakerBot Heads to Chicago!

This weekend, Keith, Nick, and myself are heading from Brooklyn to the Windy City to introduce The MakerBot Replicator to the gathering hoards at The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) convention and host a wild meet up for MakerBot operators and Chicago makers at the hackerspace Pumping Station: One on Friday night.

So if you live in the Greater Chicago Area — or Illinois in general — you have no excuse not to zip over to join us at one of these two events!
