NEW PRODUCT – Hackerspace Passport. There are hundreds of hackerspaces around the world – teaching, sharing and becoming valuable parts of their local communities. As makers travel from place to place a popular thing to do is to visit a local hackerspace and get your very own hackerspace passport stamped! Adafruit is pleased to have these in stock now! We spent a long time testing different materials and embossing to make these Hackerspace passports something you’ll have for a lifetime.
These are High-quality and durable passports with beautiful silver embossing, they’re very similar to passports, but for hackerspaces!
Here’s how Mitch Altman (TV-B-Gone, Brain Machine) who came up with Hackerspace Passport, describes them!
I created Hackerspace Passports to:
help promote people visiting as many hackerspaces around the world as possible
increase cross-pollination so we can all learn from one another
encourage all hackerspaces to support each other
(And it’s fun.)
These Hackerspace Passports look a lot like US Passports, but no fingerprints needed! And, rather than a requirement for passing borders, they are intended to encourage it! Hackerspace and hacker cons around the world have made their own stamps, so people can get their Hackerspace Passport stamped everywhere they go! I released the first 2600 of these at Chaos Communication Camp 2011, which seemed appropriate to me, since the previous Camp (in 2007) was the birthplace of the new wave of hackerspaces.
3.5″ x 5″
We’ll have a few tutorials soon on how to: Make your own stamp, workshops for RFID’ing your own hackerspace passports and more!
Here are some great photos of people using the Hackerspace passports!
