Reverse Space – Build, Create, Collaborate.
10-17-2013 “General Meeting and Impossible Instant Lab”
This week at ReverseSpace we have a new Kickstarter croudfunded project at the space as well as having the Makerspace open members and the public.
Below is from their listing:
Your digital images transformed into real instant photographs. That’s impossible, right?
Right! We are Impossible and we love instant photography. We love it so much, we were crazy enough to buy the last Polaroid factory in order to save instant film for the future. If you've ever held an SX 70 in your hand, you probably understand. It's such a beautiful piece of design and the photos it makes are so different from any other camera - unique and magical. But even we instant film aficionados take a lot of pictures with our iPhones, so we wanted to find a way to turn those digital iPhone images into true instant photos.
If you would like a tour of the makerspace, please come between 5:30pm to 6:30pm or between 9:30pm to 10:30pm for a tour. ReverseSpace is open to new people every Thursday.
5:30pm to 11PM – Space is open to everyone and their projects
6:30pm – Impossible Instant box opening and first try. Stop by and see it work!
If you have any projects you are working on, feel free to bring it to Reverse Space! We have locked storage space, hundred of tools and electronics, and the largest sections of free to use 3D printers for any Makerspace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackerspace) on the east coast of the US. At this time membership is free.
