MakerBot Digitizer Announcement
At SXSW this past week, MakerBot announced the Digitizer, a personal 3D scanner that, when paired with the MakerBot Replicator, will allow you literally “copy” real-world objects. I designed the electronics and firmware for the prototype that was displayed at SXSW.
Reporting In from the 2012 Open Hardware Summit and World Maker Faire
I just got back from the 3rd annual Open Hardware Summit and World Maker Faire. It’s been a whirlwind week of robots, 3D Printers, inspiring talks, education, networking and more. I’m excited to share all the details!
EEVBlog Does a Tear-Down of the MakerBot Replicator
Dave Jones, fellow Electrical Engineer and Youtuber, recently received a MakerBot Replicator. In this video, Dave delivers a thorough investigation of the machine and the MightyBoard electronics that I developed for it. Check it out for a close look at how the MakerBot ticks!
The Future of 3D Printing
It’s no secret that I’m excited about 3D printing. I work on Cornell’s Personal Printer, the [email protected], I own two MakerBot printers, and I’ve worked for MakerBot, designing electronics for their open-source 3D printers. In this local news story on 3D printing, I talk about how the technology is advancing.
Pop In and Start Up at the PopShop!
I recently helped found a new space at Cornell to promote collaborative entrepreneurship, hacking, and start-up incubation. This one-month experiment is called “The PopShop.”
Cornell’s First Startup Career Fair
I recently helped organize Cornell’s first annual startup career fair, hot on the heels of working on Cornell’s NYC Tech Campus Bid. I was simultaneously recruiting for MakerBot Industries at the fair.
The MakerBot Replicator has Landed
Tthe 3rd Generation MakerBot 3D Printer, “The Replicator”, is here! For several months I’ve been working for MakerBot, designing the all-new electronics that control the Replicator. Prepare for a revolution in personal manufacturing.
Open Source Society [TEDx Cornell Talk]
Back in October I was invited to speak at Cornell University’s first annual TEDx event. The theme of the evening was “rethinking our society”, so naturally, my talk focused on how open source concepts could be used to re-imagine how our world works.
Open Hardware Summit and Maker Faire Wrapup
Yes, that’s me with the Arduino Team at Makerfaire! If you follow me on twitter, then you’ll certainly know that I spent last weekend in New York City for the 2nd Annual Open Hardware Summit and the 2011 World Maker Faire. I covered the Open Hardware Summit for element14 Electronics (hence[…]
MakerBot Thing-O-Matic Build Timelapse
This video is long overdue. I put my very own MakerBot 3D Printer together during my last week working at MakerBot this summer. In case you can’t tell from the video, I pulled a Red Bull and pizza-fueled all-nighter to assemble it. It was more fun that way. Big thanks are[…]
