NEMES July Meeting 2007

The July meeting is one of our twice yearly "poster sessions".  Members are invited and encouraged to bring in finished projects and projects which are in the works.  Here are some pictures of the evening.

DSC02142.JPG (92237 bytes)  Robin Parker showed off his Roomba autonomous vacuum cleaner.  He reports that he has had it for about a year and likes it very much.  The dog doesn't even bark at it like he did the regular vacuum cleaner.  It makes a bit of noise so when they are going out they turn it loose and it works its' magic while they are gone.
