Hey hardwarians,

Our next meetup is on May 3rd at 6pm, so mark your calendars! Our meetup last Wednesday was terrific, with some great demos. In case you missed it, here are the companies:

  • Emmanuel Dumont, presented Shade, a beautifully designed wearable ultraviolet measurement technology which helps lupus sufferers take control of their exposure and avoid syptoms.
  • Jacob Gordon, presented Artiphon, a new type of instrument that's different than anything you've seen before. You can pre-order it here, and they’ll be shipping in Summer.
  • Oscar Pedroso, presented Thimble, a subscription service that sends you once a month a carefully curated kit of electronic parts and components organized around specific themes and contests. You can get 10% off any subscription tier on their store with promo code 'create'. They are also looking for 5 folks to do unboxing videos once you get your first kit. Unboxing entails creating a YouTube video recording yourself, talking about parts, and showing off the end result for each kit.  Kits are complementary for "unboxers" and they'll ship them to your home or work. They can reach out to me at [address removed] if they're interested.
  • Max Friefeld, presented Voodoo Manufacturing, that have created the ability for you to print anything from 1 to 10,000 units on their Makerbot farm. Anyone who creates a new account with Voodoo and enters TAKE25OFF will get 25% off their first Voodoo Manufacturing order! Please email Max directly if you have any questions or want to visit their factory: [address removed]

And of course, the meetup would not be possible without our wonderful sponsors:Canary for the beer, UL and their startup program, and PCB:NG. A word from PCB:NG: “PCB:NG, Brooklyn's own small batch PSB assembly service, invited all New York Hardware Start-Up members to their beta, and threw in a 20% discount to boot. Use community code NYHWSU for both entry into the closed beta, and for the discount, at"”


  • NY Tech Day: I went to this a couple of years ago and really liked it. There are more and more hardware companies present. "Get to know 550 startups who are pushing the boundaries of innovation! Next Thursday, on April 21st at Pier 94, NY TechDay will gather hundreds of startups under one roof for a day of celebration! TechDay is your opportunity to connect with the startups you already use, find new products to integrate into your everyday life, or even find your next job! The best part is, it’s totally FREE to attend! So snag a ticket and tell your friends!­
