HSBNE Inc is Australia's first Hackerspace and is physically one of the biggest in the world. A Hackerspace is a subscription workshop where members pool their tools and talents to work on physical projects. HSBNE currently has an emphasis on electronics, mechatronics and robotics, but hackers of all persuasions are welcome!
HSBNE encourages people from all walks of life to come together to collaborate and build amazing things. They encourage innovation and small business as well as the ‘tinkerer’.
HSBNE has taken up residence at 217 Macarthur Avenue, Hamilton where they have a huge industrial area to spread out their tools and get creative. The space will undergo a slight facelift over the coming year and once ready for public access, will host Hackers classes and workshops.
