York Hackspace has a new space! We’ve got a sort of corner of a room on the second floor of Stonebow House, an unoccupied office building, which is being allocated as temporary pop-up art studio space whilst the developers negotiate planning permissions with the council. This means it’s not permanent – in around six months or so this’ll be sorted out and we’ll be kicked out again – but till then, we’ve got some space to work in and leave things in at last! Now we just need some furniture such as tables and chairs.
If you read Custom PC, you may already know, Spacehack is in issue 140! Bob had a chat with Gareth Halfacree when we met him at the National Media Museum in Bradford. It’s been a while but finally, Gareth has put us in his column and we are eternally grateful.
Here’s a pic:
Our double page spread
Yes, we will be making a return to the Life Centre in Newcastle near the end of April to show off spacehack again and bring some interesting new stuff too.
Our setup from last year
The consoles are being upgraded and we should soon have four consoles fully functional. We’re hoping that new for this year will be: up to four player games or at least two simultaneous two player games, improved gameplay and streamlined startup, and then mostly just some bug fixes.
Bob has also mentioned that he plans to bring along an “out of body experience”. The fine details are being kept top secret right now but if all goes well, this should be ready to go for April too.
We can’t wait to see you there.
York Hackspace now has a blog!
This has been in the pipeline for too long, it is finally here.
Let’s hope we make good use of it.
