Road trip anyone?
I love robots. I love computers. And Im starting to love tools the more I get to try to improve on my n00b skillz. So when I get a chance to see tools and computers together that I can have access to in my own house, garage, or makerspace that I am happily a member of, I think this may deserve a look as something to add to the space.
TechCrunch just posted this article http://techcrunch.com/2012/06/15/mail-ru-ceo-starts-25-million-fund-to-spark-personal-robotics-start-ups/ about cool $25MM fund by Grishin Robotics where they are looking to fund personal robotics startups http://www.grishinrobotics.com/.
We have been building a lot of features into the website that encourage member interaction. I would like to take some time to walk through each featue. After that we can brainstom about what could be better or added.
Come by and meet the makers
The space has been identified as a perfect place to do a little micro-brewing and as well, a darkroom setup. There are some medium to major tasks that will be required to ready the space for such activities.
1: General clean up (FREE!!!)- This entails wiping down all surfaces and refrigerator with disinfectant (Mike M. has a big bottle of commercial strength cleaner) to both kill mold and prep for painting in order to cover the mold and in general, to lighten up the place.
