If you have a project to develop relating to your disability, or want to join and work together on someone else’s project, you may want to check out AbilityHacks, a community of makers with disabilities and volunteers devoted to addressing specific, unmet disability-related challenges. Participants enjoy building solutions that improve not only their own lives but also the lives of others through the development of new technologies.
They recently received sponsorship to meet and work in a makerspace, Humanmade, in San Francisco, near the UCSF Mission Bay, where they have access to a metal shop, CNC mills, welding, woodshop, shopbot, laser cutters, 3D printers, electronics lab, textiles, computer lab with CAD, and more in a shared work space.
If you want to work on a project for yourself or someone else, learn how to use new equipment, or contribute your skills, they meet on the first and third Saturday of every month from 2-5 p.m. For more information and to RSVP your participation, check out their Facebook page.
