Join us at the Supplyframe DesignLab for the September Hackaday Los Angeles Meetup, focusing on Assistive Technologies.
From August 22 through October 3rd, the last round of the 2016 Hackaday Prize is celebrating engineers and designers that are helping others move better, see better and live better. We wanted to take that theme and build an event around it, and we’re proud to be co-hosting this event with ABILITY Magazine.
We’ll have two speakers following an introduction by the creator of ABILITY Magazine, Chet Cooper.
