There was not public meeting on Thurs Oct 6 2011 (next week as of writing this).
Instead all Makers and interested parties are invited to come to a fundraiser for King Kekaulike High School Robotics Club and see “Bots High”, a funny and inspiring award winning documentary that follows three teams of high school robotics geeks who build and battle their way to a national robotics competition in Miami. Tickets are $5.00 at the door or via paypal (see link) thru Maui Makers.
I, Jerry Isdale founder of Maui Makers, am one of the mentors for the KKHS Robotics Club and am organizing this fundraiser. We will be showing the film on Gabe Mott’s ColorBox. This is a very cool projection rig that includes Kinect based video interaction modes. We will have the ColorBox running interactively with music before and after the film showing.
