The Road to Hacklab 3.0

Hacklab has been a rather regular cadence of activity. Our members have been focusing on shaping the upper floor which will serve as our hub, class room, kitchen and lounge area. The workshop and DIY BIO will be in the downstairs. We’d like to thank our member Norm for putting together the following two progress update videos.

Junk Independence Day! Nov 18th

by on Nov.04, 2018, under Uncategorized

It’s everyone’s favorite time again, Junk Independence Day! Rocking Hacklab Toronto, this 18th from 2pm-7pm. Bring your e-waste and dig through other people’s for treasures. On previous Junk Independence Days, people have walked away with an iPod touch, a 1TB hard drive, working classic iMacs, bubblejet printers, a Sony mini-DV camcorder, stereo amps, speakers, a desktop computer and even walk/don’t walk streetlights! Not to be forgotten, there are always lots of little chips and bytes for random hacking, too.

Anything left at the end will be picked up on following Monday and responsibly recycled by Revolution Recycling, who has been participating in our Junk Independence Days since the first one. Thanks Revolution!!

/!\ Reminder: Please don’t disassemble items brought in for the Junk Day, if you want only part of an item, take it home, and bring the rest back next junk day. This avoids unfortunate situations were someone brings in a working laptop, and some who really needs it, can’t get it because in between someone else tore it in half for a speaker or a battery.
