Are you making things in Baltimore?


What are you making?

I'm Application Developer for BlinkyTape, a 1m long flexible RGB LED strip powered/controlled entirely over USB via our Arduino-compatible BlinkyBoard controller. We funded our first production run via Kickstarter to the tune of 1000+ units!

How are you going about making your thing(s)?

Geographically split team. Lead engineer in Shenzhen, China for manufacturing. Me here in Baltimore developing software, docs, managing a small group of beta testers.

Are you using resources in Baltimore to make your thing(s)?

Not yet!

What would be you like to see/be helpful to have in Baltimore to help your making of thing(s) easier?

Specific to BlinkyTape - a community of digital artists for local beta testing. Non-specific: good sources for electronic parts and PCB manufacturing.


I'm a web developer, tinkerer, and 3D printing enthusiast. Former lead developer for MakerBot's Thingiverse, now doing my own things.

What Marty M. is saying about this Meetup Group

Off to a great start. Woo!
