Next Meetup

Project Build: Roomba Rovers
Interested in having a robot roaming your house? Maybe tracking your pets? What would you program it to do? Individually we will be designing, hacking and programming our own Roomba vacuum. Together we will be helping each other along the way. We are scheduling each session as a group based on next steps and who is in attendance. This session (12/12) we will continue our custom wiring but we will also be able to demonstrate the Robot Operating System (ROS) middleware that is running on at least two of our Pi/Roomba implementations. Come join us as we learn, discover and give it a try! Newcomers welcome! Are you ready to Roomba? PPM is a 501(c)(3) and accepts donations, especially hackable Roombas! ;-)

What we're about

The Pikes Peak Makerspace is the center for economic development for the Pikes Peak Region. We are leveraging the latest technology to team up with the smartest minds to anchor facilities that are already launching new companies, new products, and educating the local workforce.

It is our mission to create an environment where people interested in technology, science, art, and business can collaborate on creative projects; share tools; learn; teach; make things; prototype new ideas, products and services; start ventures; meet new people and share knowledge.

We have teamed up with Epicentral Coworking, Peak Startup, Colorado College & UCCS to tap into and support the Pikes Peak startup community. We are the spark that has launched 3 new companies and 5 new products in our first year.
