The semesterly MITERS End-of-Every-Term Research Showcase (MEETERS) was tonight! About 20 to 25 people were in attendance throughout the night, projects were demonstrated and presented, and pizza was had by all.
Last week, a few members of the Georgia Tech Invention Studio (a.k.a Bizarro World MITERS) came to visit MIT and to cross-spread the
love good word engineering lunacy. This is the result.
Nancy gives a lecture on how to github:
It’s nail painting night at MITERS!
nancy edits on 2 dec 2011:
for reference, I talked (actually mostly I evangelized open source hardware and mentioned rise of EE but not really meche-oriented version control, then most people already knew how to use git & github) about:
- upverter, solderpad, circuitbee, openhardwarehub (http://orangenarwhals.blogspot.com/2011/11/hardware-sharing-versioning-recent.html)
- github.com, help.github.com, pro git http://progit.org/book/, libraries.mit.edu/get/safari (then search for git, or embedded hardware, etc.)
- http://www.bunniestudios.com/blog/?page_id=1927 (his made in china series is interesting too)
- Here is the video which I decided not to hunt for during the talk: Open source hardware $1m and beyond – foo camp east 2010 by adafruit industries 2 years ago http://vimeo.com/11407341
You have to start building somewhere, so MITERS frosh Walter came by this past week to add a sound system to his bike!
It doesn’t have to be complicated, spectacular, or outlandish to be built at MITERS!
Big thanks to Ilya Smelansky for putting together this awesome video showing exactly what a MITERS is….
Not really a MITERS endeavor, but made by MIT students nontheless. And awesome.
Like supermanning a moped…
