Melbourne Eastern Suburbs Hackers is a community based organisation that is part of the broader DIY community. Our goal is to create a maker space in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Most of our members are interested in electronics, robotics, computer programming and 3D printing.
Another purpose of MESH is to make the world a better place. One thing we do is to use technology to help disabled people be a little less disabled. One of our members has developed a button box that is driven by an Arduino microcontroller that allows the user to "press" any key on the keyboard. This button box can easily be programmed by the user to imitate any keystroke or mouse movement.
MESH is a place where nerds can gather to socialise, make and share knowledge. MESH is a place where where ordinarily people can make their dreams reality.
Oh, and we like robots.
