I think we are ready to announce the 7th hardware startup meetup, and we have a great group of presenters. NYC Alley (http://www.alleynyc.com) has graciously accepted to host our meetup in their event space, which should hopefully fit us all comfortably and seated. We will continue with some submission entries for NY's Next Top Maker competition, who will be garnering your support for the public vote in the last days of the competition's voting period. We will have Hardi Meybaum present GrabCAD, a great resource for Mechanical Engineers - he will also tell some war stories about taking a startup from Estonia to Boston, via the Techstars accelerator. Finally we will have 2 startups pitch, including some great technology coming out of Harvard's robotics lab, and a new way of tinting windows on a budget.
