If you need something to get your Maker Faire juices flowing, Hackaday NYC is hosting a discussion and demo later this month at Kickstarter’s HQ in Greenpoint.

The talk will feature Anita Perr and R. Luke Dubois of the NYU Ability Project, and Andrew Chepaitis, of ELIA Life Technology. It will also feature a demonstration by the very cool startup WearWorks, which just graduated from Urban-X’s program. WearWorks makes a wearable device, the Wayband, that assists people with vision impairments in walking around the city, by sending different buzzes to the device, worn on the wrist.

Hackaday NYC is a group which convenes the maker community for talks and demos.

“Makers can talk about their projects, how they created, what resources they’ve discovered, and what they’ve learned along the way,” according to the group.
