The Homebrew Technology Club of Oregon is excited to announce a meetup on 4/1/15, to gather with fellow technie Bendites and meet Baxter, one of only 150 life-size robots available so far and the second in Oregon. It’s 6’3″, 250 lbs, easily trainable, and able to work alongside humans.

Despite the date, we promise it’s not an April Fools joke, but a look at the future of tech and manufacturing in Bend. Check out more about Baxter here and here.  To RSVP and for more details, click here for the meetup page.
