I am a graduated mechatronics engineering student (can’t say I’m an engineer in Canada without that PEng), doing my masters in engineering currently. I love to make things!!! Learning new ways to make things using a variety of materials is something I am passionate about, and fell in love with 3D printing and the emerging maker communities in the second year of undergrad.
I bought a Ringo because: 1) I haven’t owned a phone that I liked more than my old flip phone and 2) I thought that this product represents an opportunity to break out of the too-rapidly evolving cell phone industry and take cell phones into the maker’s domain. I’d like to see more platforms like this in the future, and will be doing my best where possible to contribute to their development and to their communities!
