Hackforge presents; CustomEXO Project Open Conference & Forum

September 19, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A presentation of the CustomEXO Project goals, obstacles, and an opportunity to join the ExoHuman Laboratory mission to research & develop a CustomEXO(skeleton) for a person with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. We will connect 3D printing technicians, engineers, medical professionals, artists/designers and the community (worldwide).
We will begin the night with a series of short informative lectures from our various field experts on the relevant advances in their field to the future of the ExoHuman Laboratory objectives. These talks will be followed by a presentation of the categories of obstacles facing the CustomEXO Project goal, after which we will invite the audience to assign themselves to a ‘team’ of their choosing to discuss solutions to that particular set of problems. Your team will then pick one or two people to present your solutions after the set brainstorm. After the presentations, we will take a short break, and then end the night with the team and ADC giving a short speech about the plan in progress to accelerate the project forward (followed by an informal question and answer period with those team members that are able to stay for the duration of the event).
Please let us know in advance if you’d like to schedule a Skype appointment to interact with the conference attendees, and direct any futher questions to CustomEXO@gmail.com – we can’t wait to meet you!
Look forward to recordings posted TBA. At the end of our presentation we will release our ‘upcoming steps’ plan, review the team brainstorm input with consult from our experts, and leave off with a general Q&A followed by an informal meet and greet as we clean up the Hackforge space for their next event.
