We can’t wait to play with these 4 Hive76 projects at the Philly Tech Week kickoff

You can hang out with an orange cyborg. Plus, the hackerspace's larger-than-life Connect Four is back by popular demand.

All hail HiveLord.


“The HiveLord” cometh.

It’s a cyborg with a TV-esque head that captures your face, built by Hive76’s Pete Perreault. You can play with it at the Arcade @ Dilworth, the kickoff to Philly Tech Week 2015. Read about how Hive76 made the HiveLord here.

Here’s a full list of who will be showing off tech-art projects, apps and games at the April 17 event.


What else will Hive76, a hackerspace in Callowhill, bring to the kickoff? Spokesman Chris Terrell gave us the details.
