DSC_7579_fMy name’s Matthew Borgatti. I am a maker, designer, and engineer. You may have seen some monsters I’ve built, printed objects I’ve released, or watched videos I’ve made. Chances are there’s one of my passports hanging around at your hackerspace.

I am the founder and lead scientist at Super-Releaser, an open source soft robotics company dedicated to building the technologies that bring the robots out of the lab and into everyday life. We develop products, manufacturing methods, measurement equipment, and applications for soft robots.

I got a BFA in industrial design from RISD in ’07. Between then and now I’ve built a fleet of plotter robots for Bond, worked on 5 books, developed projects in house for Instructables, built kite powered racers for Makani, designed the CNC curriculum at TechShop, and animated a TV series for NOVA.

My other hobbies include urban spelunking, developing open source products, graphic design, and photography.
