Looking back on my busy summer, I can tell you that one of my favorite memories is going to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. I was selected to visit Goddard for five days to learn more about space! During the week, I was able to talk to lots of NASA professionals, including the head of the largest heliophysics division in the word. The Parker Solar Probe that just launched, will orbit the Sun closer than any other man made object has before! Just as this probe has launched, soon Preemadonna’s Nailbot will be launching.

HAX Demo day was the culmination of the hardware accelerator, and Preemadonna’s adventures in China. On May 11, 2015, we participated in HAX Demo Day in San Francisco where we showcased all of our efforts over the past several months (and years!) to create the best Nailbot, a nail art and nail painting robot, possible.
HAX is the #1 hardware accelerator program, and Preemadonna’s guardian angel
When I first got the news that we got into Hax, Batch 6, I was ecstatic and inspired. HAX (formerly Haxlr8r) is the world’s first hardware accelerator - they take 10-15 global based teams to Shenzhen, China for four months where they give the lucky few some initial capital, and significant mentorship & engineering resources to bring the teams’ hardware concepts to advanced prototype form.
Maker Faire is called the "Greatest Show and Tell on Earth" and I can’t think of a better way to describe the experience. This year as a Preemadonna co-founder, alongside my partner, Pree, I participated as a booth attendant for Maker Faire Bay Area 2015 instead of just a regular participant. It gives a different perspective.
