Does anyone have an opinion on OpenROV? http://openrov.com/ I have a friend with a 3D printer and he's considering trying one out as a project.

Excellent, looking forward to meeting you. 

Comment by Don Kosak on February 8, 2013 at 10:04am

Rod, I'll be there.  I live on the East-side (Hilo), so I haven't met as many folks on the West side as I would like to.  Looking forward to it.

Thanks, Daniel.  I have heard of Nalukai, but have not yet met Don.  I'll see if he would like to attend and maybe present at the pau hana soon.

Hey Ron - You may want to mention the new Big Island-based innovation startup accelerator Nalukai during your meetup. One of the founding partners, Don Kosak, is a TechHui member who lives on your side of the island. John and Don have been discussing Nalukai in this blog post.

Sound within the Silence: Deep Vibrations in Kona

Milton Garces has been listening to the inaudible for 20 years, using infrasound to study volcanoes while at UCSD/Scripps, Univ. of Alaska, and Univ. of Kyoto.  He is founding director of the Infrasound Laboratory, University of Hawaii at Manoa, located at NELHA.  At this month's presentation he will discuss events and sound sources recorded here in Kona, and what they tell us about the natural and man-made world.
