MAKE Magazine Issue 8 Launch Party/Dorkbot SoCal 19
with Simon Penny and Mr. Jalopy
Date & Time
December 2, 2006, 5:30pm
Machine Project

Please join us for a very special meeting of Dorkbot SoCal to launch the new issue of MAKE magazine.

Simon Penny (Director of UCI’s Arts Computation Engineering program) will speak on integrating interaction design, space design, structure design, mechanical design, electronic design and software engineering using his 3D machine-vision driven interactive digital-video project Fugitive 2 as a case study. Attention will then turn to the pragmatic design and fabrication issues involved in building a custom motion control rig for the video projector in the project. Simon is bringing in a prototype of the motion control rig as tangible example.

Mr. Jalopy (Contributing Editor to MAKE and automotive mad scientist) will be giving an epic (yet fast-paced) talk on “Deep Sea Suburbs: Custom Vans, Internal Combustion Engines, Backyard Anthropology and the California Dream.”

MAKE magazine issue #8 will be available for perusal and purchase. There is a high probability of free beer and pretzels.
