What we're about

Based at Circuit Launch - an electronic hardware co-working space in Oakland, CA, this group meets to design, prototype and build open source robots of various kinds: quadrupeds, space rovers, arms and hands, telepresence robots and much more.

Circuit Launch provides the space, tools and advice - you just need to bring project materials, consumables and bags of enthusiasm.

Open Source Robot .....?

Circuit Launch

Build Day for open source robots... what are you building? *What is build day? BYO project or buy a kit if we have something in stock! You have open access to a community of like minded tinkerers and robot builders. Build days so far have focused on 3D printers and CNC machines, Mars Rovers and Donkey Cars, telepresence robots for Remo.TV and open source robot arms/hands. *What is Circuit Launch? Circuit Launch is a cowork space for hardware, electronics and robotics startups or individuals. Inventor access is as low as $89/month, dedicated desks are $250/month and offices start at $750/month. You can bring any project you like to the meetup, and you can come as a bystander but it's pretty boring if you're not building. * Kits available: CNC, 3D printers, telepresence robots, donkeycars, arduino, raspberry pi and basic robot electronics projects. Costs $50 to $250 * Equipment use outside of the soldering and debugging gear requires certification. * U18s welcome with a participating adult. Women and minority groups welcomed!
