Supplies

This is a list of things that will be needed for support equipment. Hopefully the people local can bring most of these things on the list, so the people traveling won't have to pack and bring as much.

  • Power strips (lots)
  • Extension cord(s)
  • Laptop locks


Transportation

Post in the [RepRap NYC-Maker Faire mailing list or the forum to try and coordinate a carpool. It is probably easier to do it on the forum than on here. Taking the LIRR is probably not feasible with large and delicate robots as well.
