I got to head to SXSW a little early this year. I stopped in the SXSWedu area where they were building models from LEGO, 3D printer models from a Makerbot and more. TechShop was supplying the materials and equipment to make some cool items. I got to talk with them and also got a dog tag laser etched.
Techshop is a place where inventors can get their ideas off the ground. They have the space and tools for you to use. www.techshop.com
