Hudson Square Connection hosted the first ever Hudson Square in 3D event promoting 3D printers, modular music synthesizers and special guest speakers.
The event consisted demos of Imakr 3D printers and modular musical synthesizers. The 3D printers were set up in the lobbies of three different Hudson Square buildings. Each printer printed a different street furniture object deigned by three different Hudson Square based firms. The modular synthesizer demo turned participants into DIY composers by creating their own tunes.
Closing out the two day fest were two ticketed speaker events. Ignite Gotham hosted a series of 11 rapid-fire presentations that discussed how 3-D printing has affected the fashion and art worlds. The second event took a look at the podcasting world featuring speakers such as comedian Todd Barry (Todd Barry Podcast), Kaitlin Prest, general manager of The Heart, and Michael Sebastian, a business journalist at Advertising Age.
PKPR secured coverage from The New York Times, 6sqft Downtown Magazine, New York Business Journal, amNEWYORK, and a special feature from Untapped Cities highlighting history of Hudson Square buildings.
