Hey hardwarians,

What better way to start the new year than coming to a hardware startup meetup? We'll have some stellar startups pitching you their new goods and products. Alex Hawkinson, who comes from raising an impressive $3M seed round, will be pitching Smart Things and their Developer and Maker competition, as well as telling us their story. Britta Riley will be pitching WindowFarms, a startup taking hydroponics to the next coolness level - they've just come from a successful Kickstarter campaign. And lastly, have you ever thought of 3D printing a house? Then listen up for DSHAPE, a rather large concrete 3D printer coming our way pretty soon.
