Velocity Robotics won AlphaLab Gear’s Hardware Cup event on Tuesday, February 6, with their Bluetooth-enabled automated miter saw fence. The event, which Leech Tishman sponsored and which LaunchPad team members attended, was held at Google’s Pittsburgh office and saw six hardware startups pitch their ideas. Before the pitches, speakers from Bosch, Philips, and Google gave presentations to those in attendance. The evening included participants from various types of organizations and was a wonderful display of Pittsburgh’s startup ecosystem.
