We are super excited to announce that we have made it to the final round of judging in the INFY Maker Awards from the Infosys Foundation. If we are awarded the grant we will be able to significantly speed up our timeline for rolling out the next round of hands-on workshops and classes with the Maker Auto team. Our goal is to start a more long term schedule of events where we revisit some of the same organizations on an ongoing basis. You can help us out a bunch by simply voting for our project on the INFY Maker Awards website.

Hey, check it out, we have a new video!
Check it out! The Economist did a video about the Maker Auto Project. http://producersoftomorrow.economist.com/jugaad-inventions-the-maker-auto
Great job Nikhil. You rocked that interview.
Stay tuned for news about the road show that we are planning!
The auto team was recently featured on the History Channel. Check out min 20:30. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HU9If1CK5vc&feature=youtu.be
We drove all the way to Bangalore. OK, so really we had the auto shipped on the back of a truck, but we made it there anyway. We had a setup at Maker Faire in Bangalore and did a little intro to soldering workshop.
Thanks again to Autodesk India for making this possible!
It was a crazy ride, but we made it out of Autodesk University India 2016 smiling from ear to ear (despite exhaustion). We had the distinct honor of driving THROUGH the giant screen at the AU main event stage to receive a warm welcome from Pradeep Nair, managing director of Autodesk India. The real reason we were there though, was not the fanfare of onstage glory, but to meet the other makers, tinkerers and hackers who got together after the main event in the Maker Fair area.
