  • Security cameras are working! The screen in the lounge is showing a live stream.
    • Only exterior cameras are logging
  • Shadoxx--what happened to our big trash can?
    • No one knows, it is a mystery
  • Brad talked about the Gigabot printer and the VPL3D company
    • VPL3D is a new startup in Cincinnati offering rapid prototyping services
    • Kind of like Shapeways, but local, with better prices, and more control of your prints.
    • Their website [1] has some cool functionality for viewing objects and choosing options
    • They may want some Hive members to "beta test" the website and service
    • Possibility for a tour of VPL3D
    • Brad brought in the Gigabot 3D printer for the Hive to use! This is "free loan"
      • It's enormous
      • PLA extrusion
      • VPL3D bought it, but they did not get quite the print quality they hoped for.
