Do You Have Your TechShop Membership?

June 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

Featured on CNBC news, TechShop offers tools that have been inaccessible to the average person since they were created as part of the Industrial Revolution. The Daily Markets website says, “TechShop is a membership-based workshop that provides members with access to tools and equipment, instruction, and a community of creative and supportive people so they can build the things they have always wanted to make. You can think of TechShop like a fitness club, but with tools and equipment instead of exercise equipment. It is sort of like a Kinko’s for makers, or a Xerox PARC for the rest of us. TechShop was featured this morning on CNBC as part of its “Manufacturing’s New Future” series (see video above), as a company that helps entrepreneurs realize their dreams.  One entrepreneur says “It’s like belonging to a gym, but you get access to $10 million worth of equipment.”  One term used about TechShop is that facilitates the “democratization of tools.”
