Hello Hardwarians!  

Thanks for coming out last month to the first meetup at Bolt!

    Hello All, Sol Power LLC will be at tonight's Hardware meetup and we're excited to announce our first product demo of our solar powered charging station for cell phones and tablets at the nines music festival Saturday August 10th in Devens, MA. We're also still looking for the right external fabrication house to partner with for low rate initial production of our station shells. So if you're interested in working on our stations with us (ME's, IE's, EE's) or talking fabrication houses, please say hello tonight!

    Cheers,
    Ryan
