At the Chair for Media Computing and Human Computer Interaction, the second Aachen Maker Meetup is being held.

This month's main topic is TOOLS! We'll share our favorite helpers that get us through our Maker day. We'll also use this evening to kick off some entries for the HACKADAY PRIZE 2018! Moreover, we will also present some of our hot research projects that are aimed at making Makers' lives easier by providing easy-to-use design and prototyping tools. However, most of the evening is supposed to be used for discussions. Fab Lab Aachen—located at the Chair—is available during the Meetup as well and offers a laser cutter, 3D printers, and more.

In 2009, the chair started hosting monthly Maker meetups under the name of DorkBot. This event series will now get a fresh start with increased variety and interesting guests thanks to the support by new research projects by BMBF and EU.

You'll be fine with German or English at the event. Our meetups take place at our research lab, but we have a wide mix of attendees of all ages, not just students. Interested people are heartily invited to join the event anytime, with or without their favorite tool. Interessierte sind herzlich eingeladen, jederzeit bei dem Event vorbeizukommen, ob mit oder ohne Lieblings-Werkzeug. Please sign up for the event here if you'd like to join us so we can order the right amount of food and drinks—thank you!
