DIY Paper Engineering, Die/Vinyl cutters

I’m traveling on the mainland this week. Just spent a couple daze in Salt Lake City and off to NYC tomorrow.  Mostly this trip is for family purposes but on Saturday I’m going to be at NYCResistor taking a class in DIY Paper Engineering.  I am jazzed to be able to take a class at this hackerspace – both to learn paper engineering and to check out a class at an established hackerspace.  The topic came to my attention back when I posted to the Google for Maui discussion.  I later found a really cool post/video on Tangible learning in 21st century Digging a bit further I found the author Shaunna Smith is at U. Houston and giving a tutorial about this on Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE) on this (link to preview).  Both of these talk about using a computer die cutting system like the Craft Robo and Silhouette both of which are under $300.  NYC Resistor has one (more?) of these and I’m thinking it would be a really inexpensive bit of hardware for MauiMakers.  I’ll post more after the class and let you know.

Btw, I’ll be on island tween April 23-30 and would love to get together with folks.  Drop me an email if you want to suggest a time/place.
