Video from SF Hardware Startup Meeting

Video from SF Hardware Startup Meeting

This past Thursday, some of the MAKE team traveled down to San Francisco to attend a Bay area meetup for hardware startups. We continue to experiment with our streaming camera rig and we livestreamed the event. You can see an archive of that stream here. In the video, you get to see folks who have new hardware companies in motion, or on the drawing board, presenting to the crowd. I always find this sort of thing very inspiring.

Kudos to the amazing Nick Pinkston for putting this event together and to the Jellyfish Art for hosting. We’re hoping to do more of these streamed events and we encourage other groups to do the same (and let us know if you do and we’ll try to cover it here on MAKE). It’s great to be able to take a peek inside local maker communities and to share in some of the bright ideas we all have brewing.

And many thanks to members of the MAKE Team (Dale Dougherty, Sherry Huss, Brookelynn Morris, Nat Wilson-Heckathorn, Brian Jepson, and Shawn Wallace) for taking time out of their very busy schedules (cough: Maker Faire) to attend and cover this event.

BTW: Nick will be hosting these meetings every month, so if you’re interested in future events, sign up via their Meetup page.
