You gotta go to Hive76 during Philly Tech Week 2016

Make your own synthesizer, play some retro video games or just watch it all happen.

I first stepped foot into hackerspace Hive76 during Philly Tech Week 2013.

It’s one of my favorite tech scene memories. After covering so many software companies and their sleek, minimalist interiors, it was nice to finally go to a place and see the things that people were making. And those things were crammed into every corner: pinball machines, 3D printers, a suitcase turned into speakers. The place is fun and weird and welcoming — Hive76 member Chris Thompson acted as my guide, answering all my questions about 3D printing and showing me one of his side projects: beef jerky business cards.

That’s why you should go and experience the magic for yourself, even if, like me, you don’t identify as a maker.

Hive76 is hosting a series of evening events during Philly Tech Week 2016 presented by Comcast: DIY Music Night (Thursday, May 5), Retro Gaming Night (Tuesday, May 3) and an open house (Wednesday, May 4). It’s a good opportunity to check out its new spot at Bok, plus a way to take a break from all the talks and networking throughout the week.

You can also catch Hive76’s creations during the PTW Kickoff at City Hall’s Dilworth Park (April 29) and the closing Signature Event at URBN (May 6).
