I just received this very exciting invite to the Edinburgh Hacklab‘s first birthday party. The Hacklab is one of my favourite Edinburgh establishments, founded by some of our coolest local robot experts. Full details about the Hacklab and party below—see you there!
Edinburgh Hacklab is the city’s first hackerspace, part of a global movement of spaces created by like-minded individuals worldwide who love to make and hack things. By creating a shared space to do this, we provide access to better facilities than we could each have at home, as well as opportunities to collaborate, learn, and socialise.
We started a year ago with 12 founding members and have grown to 20+ paying members plus many regular visitors spanning diverse backgrounds in engineering, art, and science, using the space in hobby, academic, and professional capacities.
We’ve decked out the lab with a laser cutter, CNC mill and 3D printer letting us fabricate almost anything, we’ve run regular open nights and other events and built loads of cool stuff. And we still have more planned over the next year, including moving to a new and bigger space.
To mark the occasion we are celebrating in style and have booked out the entire ground floor at the Out Of the Blue Drill Hall, complete with bar. As well as the opportunity for a drink with our members and friends, the lab will be open and we’ll be inviting you to see the space and some of the projects we’ve completed over the past year. There will also be a raffle with some great prizes donated by sponsors including Oomlout, O’Reilly, and Los Cardos.
