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.
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!
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!
I was recently profiled (along with Brian Shiffer – a fellow hacker and good friend) in the Cornell Daily Sun. You can read the whole article here. Both of us attended MakerFaire NYC and the Open Hardware Summit. I presented my sudoglove at the Open Hardware Summit, and I worked[…]
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[…]
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[…]

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, or if you follow me on twitter, you probably know that I’m working at Makerbot Industries this summer. It’s been a blast so far – everybody is very intelligent, and truely excited about the work they are doing. I’ve been working on[…]
