Next Hack Things Meetup is Sept. 20th
The next Hack Things meetup is right around the corner. This Friday in Seattle, we’ll be having 3 great speakers plus open show-and-tell. Each speaker is going to demo a product they have developed, sharing with us their story from concept to market. Show-and-tell will be a chance for anyone in the general community to share their own work. Naturally, we’re encouraging attendees to bring actual prototypes/products for everyone to see and try.

Kyle Hart: Kyle is co-founder of Rhino Camera Gear, a quickly-growing company located just south of Seattle. “I’m Kyle and I love product design and camera gear. It wasn’t always this way though… Three years ago, sitting at my desk writing an insurance contract, I started thinking of new ways to stabilize cameras when filming. I spent a year learning manufacturing and CAD and started designing products and building a company, Rhino Camera Gear. To date, I’ve successfully funded 3 Kickstarter campaigns and have established the brand as a leader in DSLR film making accessories. My goal is to continue pushing the limits of filmmaking through innovative and affordable gear.”
