Dorkbot Austin

Last night Make: Magazine sponsored a dorkbot meetup in a tent just outside of SXSW in Austin.

Austin makers showed up and shared amazing machines, robots, and contraptions. I got their a little early and got a chance to take some video before it got super crowded. Austin makers have got it going on!

I interviewed Joe Diprima of The Geek Group about their singing tesla coils and I chatted with Craig Newswanger (who also plays with teslas) about his home made telescope!

Maker Faire is coming to Austin later this year and with these folks there, it’s going to rock!

Did you have a favorite thing you saw there that I didn’t mention? Drop a note in the comments!
