altLab’s new hacking facility

This Tues­day Altlabs ope­ned it’s new ama­zing hac­king spa­ce. Now within an old pla­nes sup­pling fac­tory that was recon­ver­ted into the Flying Hou­se Lis­boa a pla­ce that gathers music and urban artists.

This new pla­ce gives AltLab a gre­at new infras­truc­tu­re and loca­ti­on fil­led with pos­si­bi­li­ti­es. Sin­ce it’s a hea­vily indus­tri­a­li­zed area we can only won­der what new resour­ces and con­tacts we will gather to con­ti­nue impro­ving AltLab as a Hac­ker­sap­ce.

We even got time to finish assem­bling the Makerbot’s new rota­ting plat­form and extru­der that we hope to have them ready to print as soon as pos­si­ble.

As usu­al our door is wide open to everyo­ne and we wel­co­me all tho­se lur­king cre­a­ti­ve minds to bring gre­at new ide­as and pro­jects to AltLab!
