Intro to MITERS Answered

Here's a nice introductory video for MITERS, the MIT club that Eric, Tim Anderson, and the Squid Labs team used as their clubhouse/home base for building awesome things while at MIT.  Looks like people are still learning new things, and making good use of the tools and shop space.

That's great! If at all possible, someone should contact them and let them know about Instructables. They would LOVE it! (And they would be contributing members!)

...and still haven't learned the basics of wearing eye protection when doing high-speed milling of metal parts.  Geek googles are cool.

more like the milling and lathe, like the guy hovers over to take a closer look.  Maybe give him a tie to wear also.

I've lost count the number of times people stare at your work while being THIS CLOSE to me and the machine. >:(

Why weren't/aren't there any of these where I went to uni?

Oh yeah, I would have failed my degree because making robots is clearly more fun than revising discrete maths.  And now I can make robots in my free time.
