This is the strange story of a hobby project that spiraled out of control.
This story involves a poor decision about a radio-controlled car, four Arduinos, the Maker Faire, a surprising number of coat hangers, cold calls to Israeli ex-weapon designers, and a grudge match with Google.
It’s led to the creation of a hackerspace in Hoboken, the Singularity and Transhuman Meetup, a missed connection with a 21-year-old homeless venture capitalist, and a mind-controlled disco ball.
This the story of one man’s quest to turn the world into cyborgs before a multinational corporation can do it first.
