This is great and they are making “tangible” products using technology and creating new ones. The owner used to be in software development and wanted to “hold things in his hand” so this is combination process of using software with some type of “manufactured” product, so it’s not just software alone being produced and who knows some of the inventions here could end up bringing jobs and new companies along. With access to both tools and technology it really opens up many opportunities. Dodocase was one product that was created at TechShop.
What you are finding are tech folks learning to work with their hands and combine the best of both worlds. TechShop is in San Francisco and plans to expand in to other cities. Will this branch off into a “medical” tech shop some day? BD
