About

Wikipedia defines a Hackerspace as a physical place where people with common interests in science, technology, digital or electronic art meet to socialize and collaborate.

In January 2010 we started a Hackerspace in Adelaide. Over 30 people with a diverse and exciting range of skills and interests were involved. We now have a list of over 100.

At a typical meeting people were working on: Arduino and Lego Mindstorms robots, Amateur (Ham) Radio software and hardware, Arduino, digital music, OLPC, learning Python, iphone app development, digital art, surface mount electronics, Web GUI design, Linux kernel hacking, embedded Asterisk (VOIP) hardware and an electric car. In the background there were many great conversations in a casual and friendly social environment.

We generally meet twice a fortnight, once on a Wednesday night from 6-9pm and the following Saturday 1-4pm. To keep up to date with events, you can use this Google Calendar (you can view it right in your browser) or subscribe to this iCal calendar.

    Hi, I live in Adelaide and just received my Makerbot Replicator for 3D printing. Do you know of any local suppliers for filament and parts? Thanks.

  3. Dear Editor,

    Hope you are well.

    I am currently working on a small online campaign on behalf of Farnell Electronics/ Element 14 , and wondered if you might be interested in being part of this?

    I am looking for websites that would be interested in receiving
    some products from Element 14 to create a project, write a review or a short article
    about or run a competition. Is this something you would be interested in?

    Let me know if you have any other ideas for a collaboration and I would be happy to discuss them further with you.

    Best Regards,
