We're Going to Maker Faire

Posted by Martine Neider on May 16, 2013 5:00:00 PM

Maker Faire, here we come! 

Come find us at Maker Faire and check out our little machine. Maker Faire is a huge and amazing congregation of folks who like to make things. If you’re in Northern California and you’ve never been, we highly recommend it.

Othermill demos will be going on all weekend at our booth, and we’ll be having a great time. We’re also bringing fancy new machines (no hints, you’ll have to go find them to see what they are) at the Synthetos and Motorola booths; be sure to look for them.
