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.
