Dorkbot SoCal 49
Chris will talk about the DIYLILCNC project, an open source set of plans for a low-cost, easy-to-build robotic fabricator. Specific topics will include: crowdfunded hardware development; the upcoming release of version DIYLILCNC v2.0–aka the BigShoulder; an in-progress software development project aimed at fostering open-source physical design & hacking collaborations.
The main goals of dorkbot are: to create an informal, friendly environment in which people can talk about the work they’re doing and to foster discussion about that work; to help bring together people from different backgrounds who are interested in similar things; to give us all an opportunity to see the strange things our neighbors are doing with electricity. dorkbot isn’t really a forum for formal artist talks or lectures, but rather a chance for diverse people to have friendly conversations about interesting ideas.
