London Hackspace (abbreviated LHS) is a non-profit hackerspace in London, UK, established in 2009. Originally located in Islington, it moved to Hoxton in July 2010. It moved to 12000 square feet of space at 447 Hackney Road, E2 9DY in April 2013. It is the largest hackerspace in the UK, with over 1000 paying members.
London Hackspace became the world's first virtualised non-profit corporation on 27 July 2011 when the members at the AGM voted to use the OneClickOrgs platform to carry out all the procedures of the board of directors.
London hackspace has a wide variety of facilities split across two floors and a large outside yard, including equipment for electronics, 3D printing, craft, laser cutting, woodwork, metalwork, biology, amateur radio, robotics, and many other things. An incomplete list of equipment can be found on their wiki.
- At Maker Faire 2011, members combined an Xbox Kinect and a pair of Tesla Coils to make an Evil Genius Simulator.
- The Nanode, a networked Arduino clone was developed at the space.
Workshops & events
London Hackspace hosts regular workshops for Biohacking, Lockpicking, Amateur radio and Hacking on OneClickOrgs. Additional irregular workshops cover Arduino programming, Python programming and OpenStreetMap mapping.
