Special Hardware Event: A Night with OpenROV

Hey Guys, We've got a special hardware event for you! The team at OpenROV is inviting us to a Q&A event they're doing at TechShop SF on Tuesday, July 24th. OpenROV is an open source robotic submarine designed to make underwater exploration possible for everyone. They've built a great community as well: from their vibrant forum on to their Kickstarter getting funded within hours. They've done a lot we can all learn from and are very close to the pulse of the maker and hardware movements - so I think it'd be a great opportunity to discuss all things robotics, open source hardware, and Kickstarter. For more info - talk to David Lang. See you there, - Nick

    It was very good and it was nice to have it in the annex space. My request would be that it was a bit hard to hear the speakers in the back of the room. Some sort of microphone would have been nice.
