Robotics & Hardware At LAB Miami in Wynwood


Once a month, a group of technology professionals, entrepreneurs and students meet to discuss different topics related to technology or entrepreneurship. This group is called RefreshMiami, a not for profit group dedicated to providing “educational content focused on the technological and entrepreneurial communities.” A RefreshMiami event recently passed, focusing on “Hardware Hacking and Robotics.”

Despite not having any experience with such technology, it was a safe bet to go to the event, since the presentations would be geared towards those who’ve never dealt in that field before. The event was held at The LAB Miami in Wynwood, a coworking space geared to those in the entrepreneurial and tech community. At the event I saw many familiar faces from previous tech scene outings, such as SuperConf and UHack. I caught up with those who I had met before, and met some new people at the event. After everyone enjoyed some free food and drinks, the presentations finally began. Since the presentations were geared towards working with hardware and robotics, all the presentations had something physical to show the audience, whether it was LED lights hooked up to a device, a Raspberry Pi (a “credit card sized computer”,) or a robot prototype.
