We are hackers in the hobbyist sense of the word
. We are hacker artists
, using technology as an artistic medium and we are hardware hackers
, modifying electronic hardware with the intent to extend, improve, or otherwise understand the original hardware design. We strive to be a community of builders, makers, and traders rather than rushing off to the store when we need something.
10BitWorks is a non-profit, membership-supported project space and learning center concept known as a hackerspace
. 10BitWorks is located in San Antonio, Texas as a garage-lab environment where hobbyists get together to make their own creations whether practical, experimental, or just for fun. Those hobbyists mentor each other and others in the domains of engineering, science, design, and art.
