The Last Machine is a hands-on guide to leading edge hardware.
We're living in the most productive time in history for inventors. Crowdfunding, the internet, Raspberry Pi, and the availability of low-cost manufacturing has set the stage for inventors to pursue world-changing ideas.

Not an inventor, but an operations guy with experience as an early-stage employee of a consumer electronics startup, Gary has an informed view of what it takes to successfully design, manufacture and ship ambitious hardware.
Product Manager, world traveler, lover of photography, climbing and all things tech. I really enjoy learning about how peoples inspirations have evolved into products. We all come from different backgrounds, and I enjoy that story. The creative process, the struggles, the success stories and the failures are all great perspective. I am here to tell those stories.
