This group is dedicated to hackers, makers, and the next Edisons.

In NJ, we've created the first commercially viable light bulb and bubblewrap! Now let's build something similarly ambitious as a group. Google built it out west and we all want to see a self-driving car here in the Garden State.

This summer we are planning on building a self-driving car named Shere Car! Praful is volunteering his car and he has computers specifically designed for cars. Now we have the equipment, we need your help to "drive" this forward (bad puns are with it).

Come join the discussion:
