Yummy food and beverages to accompany your dork euphoria.


- Ward Christie presents a collection of his and his peers work,
including his VRGoggle+Camera+harness that makes you feel like you
are viewing your own follow cam in a first-person shooter. (It's
hard to describe in text, but believe me, it is simultaneously the
geekiest and most amazing things you'll ever see).

- Chase Hammock presents his garage-built invention - Space Pod: A
Space Pod replaces your desk and chair with an ultra comfortable
fully adjustable seating system. All of the key comfort points in the
Space Pod are adjustable so the Pod molds to your entire body. The
Space Pod even boasts an integrated personal air conditioning system!

- John P. Funk brings new and working robot props from his movie
production, an homage to B-movie sci-fi special effects with honest-
to-goodness model making. He was a blue ribbon winner at Maker Faire.

- Learn details about the 2008 DorkbotAustin Workshop Series - a
chance to get your hands dirty with everything from circuit bending
to latex casting to subversive hacking.

- Before dorkbot from 5-7, drop in to the first gathering of the
Austin ARDUINO SIG from 5:00-7:00 at cafe mundi. No agenda -- just
come with your boards and parts and projects and show off what you've
done. If you've never used an arduino, bring a board and we'll get
it to do the "hello world" blinking light and maybe turn a servo.
Loaner boards will be available. (see http://www.arduino.cc for more
info about the Arduino)
