SW Makers July 2017 Eaton Meeting

We had a couple of new people pop in and say hello and work on some robotic projects.  We also had the Dardanup Shire President visit us and we talked about IOT technologies, Make Spaces, education and his vision of the future for the Shire of Dardanup. 

Stephen showed off the Nano and Tetra Pineapple WiFi www.wifipineapple.com/ scanners, as well as his HackRF One SDR receiver:
