Atlanta Makers Meetup Jan. 10, 2013

Last week, the Atlanta Makers Meetup was held at MASS Collective, a new Makerspace in downtown Atlanta in the Castleberry Hill area. Once it opens its doors to the public, they will plan on having the same type of membership business model as other Makerspaces, like My Inventor Club or Freeside, where individuals pay monthly dues to keep the place going.

Duncan Shirah, whose day job takes him to the Inferno Art Foundry while after hours he works on his own projects, had many of his creations on display including a cocktail drink dispenser, a disguise-making machine, and more.
