Release Party for Make:23
July 23rd, 6pm @ Ada's Technical Books, Seattle, WA
The newest issue of MAKE Magazine (Vol 23) features Seattle's 3ric Johanson on the cover with a new weapon in the war on malaria: the Photonic Fence from Intellectual Ventures. Informally, it's a laser-powered mosquito zapper. 3ric, who also opened Hackerbot Labs in Seattle, is excited to have a day-job working with lasers.
Join 3ric, other members of the Intellectual Ventures' team, and me at a Make "new release" party at Ada's Technical Books in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood on Friday, July 23rd from 6pm to 10pm. 3ric will talk about how the mosquito zapper works and show video of it in action, a slo-motion high-def sequence which is pretty amazing by itself. We'll have copies of the new issue on hand at Ada's Technical Bookstore. Please help spread the word to Seattle makers who are welcome to bring a project to talk about.
