Hardware Hack Lab
WHAT WE DO Open space for artists & technologists to get hands-on with new technology. We supply a bunch of hardware and a chill environment so you can hack away. Tweet: @hardwarehacklab ( at #ThoughtWorksNYC ( Website: Video Presentation: We use creative coding environments like openFrameworks or Max/MSP to play with everything from webcams to Oculus Rift. People of all experience levels, from beginners to veterans are welcome here. WARNING This meetup has no particular structure. We don't have 'hack lab' projects. We work on whatever we, and you, bring in each week - which could be anything. The schedule is loose, the feeling is social and non-judgemental. We are just curious and want to see your projects. So bring what you have and share!

What we're about

Join the local New York City forum for the Volumetric Society ( ) an eclectic group of innovators exploring the arts & sciences of a new world of natural user interfaces between body, brain, and spatially aware computing for the physical world. Come exchange ideas, demo your projects, or just get exposed to the volumetric future that devices such as VR, AR, brain computer interfaces, Leap motion, Kinect, the occasional drone, AI, Machine Learning, biometrics and sensor technology, immersion, volumetric 3D displays and cameras and telematic interfaces are taking us. Everyone is welcome - from advanced hardware hackers to those who would like to learn what can be done with these new technologies in the arts, sciences, healthcare, gaming, academia, and business venture opportunities.
