We're heading out to the midwest in March to attend the Midwest RepRap Fest, which will be a great way to connect with the founders of the RepRap movement. We're super stoked because we share a similar enthusiasm for open-source hardware and can't wait to meet and showcase the FirePick Delta. See you there!
It's official, FirePick Delta (aka the $300 Pick and Place / 3D printer) will be at the OSCon Open Hardware Showcase!
I was approached by the folks at O'Reilly Media (the ones that make the computer books) about being a part of their convention.
They've invited us to their Hardware Showcase, of which there will only be 12 Open Source Hardware projects displayed. They're primarily an open source (software) convention, which is pretty huge.
We've been going back and forth for a month trying to get everything arranged, and it's now official, I've got my plane ticket from Florida to Oregon booked. It's times like these that I'm glad FirePick Delta is small and portable. I'm going to attempt to bring it as a carry-on, some assembly required :) I just need to remember my hex wrench. Actually note to self, make sure the TSA isn't going to think I'm a terrorist with a carry-on full of unassembled electronics. That's not good.
Neil Jansen on behalf of the FirePick team. Anyone at all interested in seeing FPD, that live around the Portland area, that can make it is invited to come. I believe the expo hall admission is $25.
