Rod, thanks for the invitation to the monthly pau hanas - I'm looking forward to attending.  Is there a page/link for more information on the event?

Larry, the openrov parts are designed to be laser cut, so a 3d printer may not be helpful there. They also offer a kit of pre-cut parts to jump start a build. I haven't built one but the instructions seem reasonably complete and their forum is active.

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

Excellent, looking forward to meeting you.

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.

Next pau hana in West Hawaii is Feb. 25.  Two presenters from MIT, here to discuss the research they are doing (some of which is done here).

On Aug. 27, Greg Barbour, Executive Director of NELHA, gave the Tech Monday in West Hawaii pau hana an update of plans for NELHA's Hawaii Ocean Science & Tech Park.  Video is here on YouTube, if you are interested.  Thanks to Guy Toyama for the video.
