The problem with doing it yourself is that you often need quite a bit of space and a bunch of really expensive tools to get the job done right. Not everyone has a dynamometer in their backyard for measuring horsepower or a laser cutter for cranking out that prototype you’ve been working on. TechShop aims to fix all that with their open access public workshop. Described as “a fully-equipped open-access workshop and creative environment that lets you drop in any time and work on your own projects at your own pace. It is like a health club with tools and equipment instead of exercise equipment…a Kinko’s for geeks”; TechShop is open to everyone regardless of age or skill level. They’ve even got classes available if you’ve always been dying to try out airbrushing or building your own custom motorcycle. With an extensive equipment list and numerous available classes, TechShop is sure to be the in the dreams of techies everywhere.
