MakeSF: Artoo Presentation

I finally uploaded the photos from the last MakeSF Meetup I attended with Artoo. It was held at the Instructables.com HQ in San Francisco, and we had a pretty good turn out for a cold December evening.

MakeSF, is loosely associate with the Make Magazine / Maker Faire folks, and attended by a wide range of geeks, artists and engineer types from all over the Bay Area, who share projects they’re working on, skills and local resources. The events are always fun and you never know who’s going to be there or presenting.

I really enjoy taking Artoo apart and showing how he works

Typically at these events people stay in their seats, but It’s not only kids that can’t help swarming Artoo – We’re in there somewhere 🙂

Big thanks to fellow Makers for allowing me to share their photos.

MakeSF September Meetup

I spent last Sunday afternoon at the MakeSF Meetup with Artoo, this month it was held at the TechShop in Menlo Park in the heart of Silicon Valley. It’s a relatively new group and a spin-off of the Make Faire.

From the MakeSF website:

Our Mission
Meet with local people to discuss and show-and-tell new technology.

The goals are to:

  • Meet other local Makers
  • Share ideas, skills, and local resources
  • Create collaborations between engineers, makers, craft folks, artists, etc.
  • Get projects ready for Maker Faire, Burning Man or other nearby events
  • Get opinions or advice on project execution

There were around 20 people in attendance, but only one person had brought something to share, so I was encourage to do an improtute presentation on building and Artoo.

The TechShop also gave us a tour of the impressive facility.
