    Very good introductory event. This was my first exposure to any hackerspace ever, and I was definitely out of my element, but in a good way. Engineers are not who I normally think of as creative, so this was rather mind-blowing.

    Just in... Alexander Reben (cardboard robots, artist and engineer) will be coming along and has a great presentation, fresh from TedXNY.

    "Needy robotics and our intimate interrelationship with technology"

    Abstract

    This lecture will explore the ever blurring line between people and technology. Both the line that separates living beings from hardware and the line that separates thought from data. Some topics covered will include: Technological anthropomorphism and how we give technology living traits; Projection of ourselves and our emotions onto the inanimate; Control of technology over us and us over technology; Human curiosity as a catalyst for technology; Mischief and how misbehaving technology is often dealt with. These topics are analyzed through the lens of my work which acts as investigations into these ideas.
    The talk will include a premiere of a rough edit of a documentary film made by robots.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
