David Lang

About This Talk

March 21, 02017

As co-founder of the underwater robot maker OpenROV, David Lang can report from the front lines of the growing citizen science movement. His products enable a community of citizen ocean explorers, just as many other amateur enthusiasts around the globe use unprecedentedly powerful, cheap technologies (and the scientific method) to explore the natural world
.

David gives a hands-on tour of his company’s soon to be released model Trident which was funded via Kickstarter. Long Now’s Stewart Brand hosts and leads Q&A with David after his talk.
