Dorkbot Pittsburgh has a meeting coming up.Ã‚Â Popular in other cities around the country, Dorkbot has had a Pittsburgh chapter for the past year.Ã‚Â I am a big fan of some of the people who have worked to bring dorkbot to Pittsburgh and I know they are involved in some interesting stuff happening here in Pittsburgh and around the country.
What is Dorkbot?
dorkbot is a regular meeting of people who like to do strange things with electricity. It’s all volunteer and non-profit — meetings are held in donated space and no admission fee is charged….
dorkbot pittsburgh will reflect what people in this area are interested in. Since we’re new, we don’t know what that means just yet. Maybe it’s military robot prototypes reborn as art projects. Maybe it’s el-wire costumes, neon art, and backlit stained glass by local arists. Or perhaps it’s cutting edge animation from local students and hackers or a local pneumatics expert showing off technology that artists might use.
So if you like computers, electricity, your cell phone, video games and you want to meet other creative people who like that stuff too – check out dorkbot pittsburgh.

We’re talking to several different speakers right now, trying to line up the right balance of art and tech.
