We're a group of artists and geeks who meet up in in south Seattle and share an interest in doing epic shit. There are some group projects, which in the past have included unreasonably large lasers (http://www.hackerbotlabs.com/2012/08/photonic-beam-results/), quarter shrinking (http://www.hackerbotlabs.com/2009/06/high-speed-coin-shrinking/), and high altitude balloons (http://www.hackerbotlabs.com/category/high-altitude/). Members often bring whatever they are working on to lab to share and collaborate, and interests range from cars to molecular gastronomy to underwater photography to tesla coils to programming LEDs for persistence-of-vision to audio transducers to DIY CNC, etc., etc. Also, we have some tools. We are trying out this meetup thing in order to do less IT and more hacking. Come have a maté and share what you're up to, or learn what other folks are up to.
