Make:PGH first meeting is Mar. 9th, 2010


We’re excited to announce the first meeting of Make:PGH, a new Make city group based in Pittsburgh. After the first attempt was thwarted by the snowpocalypse, we’re eager to get started. In the area? You should definitely stop by!

Action! Excitement! Danger!

We’re excited to announce the inaugural meeting of Make:PGH, the Steel City Makers! Interested in making stuff? Like the stuff that you see in MAKE magazine? Got cool projects to show off, or grand ideas that are soon to be realized? Want to hang out with other like-minded people? Then you should definitely come out to the meeting on Tuesday, February 9th, at 7pm!

We’ve got some good things lined up: presentations on the Makerbot, a laser harp, and an awesome activity, so be sure come out!

Marty McGuire: Makerbot


Marty McGuire is a research programmer at Carnegie Mellon and a council member for HackPittsburgh. He hopes one day to make “mad bank” thanks to open source hardware and the desktop fabbing revolution.

Marty will talk briefly about the MakerBot open source 3D printer, where it came from, and how it works. He’ll also give a short printing demo, and answer your questions!

Andy Leer: Fighting Domo


Andy Leer will share with us his experiences using the ioBridge to create fun interactive web enabled dioramas. Find out how with a few minutes and some simple hardware you too can put almost anything on the web.

Mystery Activity


Following the two fine presentations will be an activity of great interest and possible import!
