After years in the works, it’s finally happening: TechShop is opening up a Brooklyn location, TechCrunch has exclusively learned. It should be officially announced later today.
For those unfamiliar with the chain: TechShop is something of a do-it-yourselfer’s paradise. You pay them a monthly membership fee, and in return are granted access to any and all of their workspaces, each filled wall-to-wall with crazy equipment. Laser cutters! Welding stations! 3d printers! Plasma cutters! If it’s big and loud and maybe a little dangerous without the proper training, they’ve probably got at least one — and they’ll teach you to use it.
