After the success and fun from our first get together with dozens of people attending and 9+ printers on site, CT Hackerspace is looking to make this event a regular get together. We welcome everyone to attend. Like last time, we plan on having pizza / hot dogs / beverages, etc..
The collaboration continues on building an all encompassing security door system to be used at the hackerspace. We will invent, build and test our ideas. An additional hope to document our work as we go / and and publish it when we're done to help other spaces and groups with a new take on a security system.
The idea has been revamped a few times with new ideas peculating up. We are hopeful that the current breakthroughs with I/O will lead us ahead in the design.
