RESTON, VA — Chief Technology Officers from around the Washington area converged on Nova Labs October 5th for the monthly meeting of the Washington Area CTO Roundtable. The event was inspired by a presentation given by one of our co-founders, Travis Good, on MAKE Magazine’s Hardware Innovation Workshop (HIW), which he also co-chairs. The goal of the workshop was to showcase how the maker movement is using hardware innovation to create new products and services with its overall message being that companies need to pay attention!
“Makers, product designers, artists, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, and venture capitalists talked about bridging the gap between home hardware hacking and building a real hardware business.” –Dylan Tweney, VentureBeat, 5/22/12
To that end, the tour of our facilities gave local executives a close up view of some of the tools and projects from our makerspace.

Each attendee received a notebook-styled wood box with bendable hinge that was laser cut and assembled by makers at Nova Labs.
