Calling All Philadelphia-Area Makers!

Logo of the GPSD Project

Eric S. Raymond, hacker icon, open source scholar, and lead developer of GPSD (an open source program used to communicate with GPS devices) is in need of a weatherproof enclosure capable of holding at least eight GPSs at a time, such that they can be readily used for software testing. He’s made a blog post asking for help from any Philadelphia-area makers who might be interested in helping out.

If you’ve got a spiffy new 3D printer, this might be a good use for it. If you’re interested, leave a comment on his blog.
