Makerspace or Hackerspace?
It depends. I guess a makerspace is where something new is made from raw materials, and a hackerspace is where something is hacked apart and then hacked together to make something completely different. Whether you like to take things apart, or put them back together, or both, you can find your creativity enhanced at Tesseract Point. By being in close proximity to others like you, you can find new ways to make what you want to make, and benefit from the synergies of working in a shared space with shared tooling.
Because we are just getting started, we are dependent on our members to help acquire the things we need. This is your space, as much as it is anyone else's. So, while we have a few items already, if you know of something you would like to have available in one of the workshops, help us acquire it for the group! We hope to have adequate equipment so that members can work in all kinds of physical materials, like wood, plastics, fiberglass, glass, ceramics, metals, you name it. In addition, there will be well-stocked electronics labs and workbenches for working with microcontrollers and single board computers, network devices, robots, drones, whatever you can think of.
If you don't have a garage or a basement for your projects at home, or even if you do, Tesseract Point is a great place for you to get things done! Build a go-cart, make a bookshelf, invent a new widget and start a business,
