Hey hardwarians,

Our next meetup is on June 27th at 6pm, and I just sent out the meetup - it's going to be great, so sign up ASAP! Our June 1st meetup was awesome, in case you missed it, here are the companies:

  • Manuel Saez from Brooklyness showed their new bike helmet which combines navigation and safety in equal measures. They will be launching their intelligent bike helmet on Kickstarter soon! Click here for the waiting list and early bird discounts.
  • Jonathan Frankel from Nucleus, presented their smart, Internet-connected intercom that lets you instantly connect with audio or video to anyone on the same system. If you liked what they are doing, they have lots of job openings.
  • Jonathan Hirschman from PCB:NG showed that there is life in the middle of the electronics manufacturing ocean, and that if you want small to medium volumes of printed circuit boards without having to speak to anyone, get on to his beta! Use community code NYHWSU for both entry into the closed beta, and for a 20% discount.
  • Nisan Lerea from Wazer, that is developing the first consumer waterjet cutter with the same ease-of-use of a laser cutter. WAZER easily cuts metal, glass, wood, stone, composites, ceramics and more. They are launching on Kickstarter in mid-September. To stay informed, follow them on their website, facebook and twitter, or contact them on [address removed]. They are still trying to learn as much as they can from potential users, so feel free to reach out to any questions.

And of course, the meetup would not be possible without our wonderful sponsors: Urban-X the urban technology accelerator brought to you by Mini and HAX and which is accepting applications for their fall program, Canary for the beer and UL for their startup program about certification.

Events and Other Interesting things

  • There is now an open hardware slack channel that anyone can join. Check it out here.
  • Here is a great blog post from Ben Einstein from Bolt, that talks about the failure of Coin, the hardware startup that hoped to build one credit card to rule them all.

Hardware Jobs:

  • I am developing a consumer product that’s handheld and battery operated and looking to hire an engineer to help me improve the CAD design and develop a first prototype. The product is similar to a rotating curling iron. If you’re interested, please reach out to Rona Morris on [address removed].

Keep building!
