Hi hardwarians,

I hope you're doing well and preparing for our next hardware meetup on June 30th. We've got a 3D printing company, a smart home startup, a PCB manufacturer, and a bike navigation startup that will tell you how they manufactured in China. Definitely not one to be missed!

Hax - the hardware accelerator in Shenzen, China, just published another great set of slides about disruption through hardware.

Events and other:

1) Brooklyn-based PCB:NG, a new service specializing in inexpensive low volume electronics manufacturing, just announced that they're accepting beta requests for their service - the service is free for beta participants - just pay for the components that you're using (and money back guarantee, too). In return, participants provide feedback. Shoot some email to [address removed] and save your place!

2) Hackster.io is putting on an open source hardware IoT hackathon the weekend of June 27th-28th. They are sold out, but Adam Benzion is willing to take more folks from this community if you reach out to him. You can see details here. They provide food, tools, soldering stations, 3D printers, WORKSHOPS and hardware kits from MediaTek LinkIt One, Particle, Intel Edison, Pebble, Smart Things, and software from Autodesk, Azure and more!

Jobs@Startups:

1) From the MIT and Apple alums who also created the popular Clocky alarm clock (www.clocky.com) that has sold millions worldwide, Toymail began as a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign with a mission to revolutionize toys. Do you want to influence the future of toys?  Do you want to work in a fun office with incredibly smart people? Does the idea of growing with a start-up company that creates highly innovative consumer products, becoming a critical member of its operational team appeal to you?  If you can answer all of these questions in the affirmative, then working here might be in your future. Check out our job post here.

2) DogParker, a service solution to provide busy New York dog parents with safe, secure dog parking by the minute, is looking to develop Raspberry Pi/Black Beagle based prototype solution for their pilot. This includes an RFID locking solution, temperature control of the environment and live video streaming. Please get in touch if you are available to work in a consultative capacity part time for about 3 weeks. Chelsea Brownridge [address removed]

Keep building!
