My visit to ‘NYC Resistor’ – Cult hackspace in Brooklyn

On my trip over to NYC this Feb I popped by cult Hackspace / Makerspace NYC Resistor in downtown Brooklyn. I’d met resident hackers Astrida & Kim at Maker Faire in September but not had chance to stop by the space. So on a Open night (most Mondays) I spent a couple of hours lurking around, talking to the small group of makers present, working on a bunch of cool stuff, from wedding dresses, to lasercut masks & robots…I also took the chance to check out stuff like space management and other practicalities, hoping to source ideas and transfer a lil’ bit of wisdom into the Stockholm Makerspace project. Here are some snaps from the space to give you an idea of what a makerspace can look like:
