Today marks the debut of the bimonthly "editor's choice" hangout on air, live and online on Google+. This week MAKE editorial director Gareth Branwyn will discuss robots and the Rovera, a new Arduino-powered robot now available in the Maker Shed. As we typically do, we'll announce a special offer during the hangout.
This week on Food Makers, a weekly Google+ hangout on air, I'll be talking to members of Re:Farm the City. Re: Farm is an international collective started by Spain's Hernani Dias. Members develop open source hardware and software for urban farmers.
Wired editor-in-chief Chris Anderson is stepping down to focus on his drone business, 3D Robotics.
Zach "Hoeken" Smith is a co-founder of MakerBot, but he left the company 18 months ago and now calls Shenzhen, China home. In addition to pursuing his own projects he's the program director for Haxlr8r , San Francisco-based hardware start-up incubator. As part of MAKE's coverage of the "maker pro" space, I recently interviewed Zach about his work in China.
