Jaxhax, Jacksonville, OneSpark

One of the more interesting booths we were able to check out at One Spark was that of the JaxHax Makerspace. They weren’t really pitching a project, per se, but rather they were pitching their giant workshop. JaxHax is a 8,000 Sq. Ft. shared workshop right in the middle of Downtown Jacksonville. According to their Facebook Page, JaxHax is built on a few different principles: “Through a union of creativity, curiosity and individual expression we build intersections between technology, science, art, and culture.”1

The goal of this organization is to provide a physical space for people to collaborate on constructive and creative works. These works may range from the artistic to the electronic and the mechanical. Ultimately we help encourage members to learn from each other, have a good place to work on projects and act as a springboard for the launch of innovative new designs and products into commercial and community endeavors.2

Giant Shark

This was by far one of the more interesting booths, in terms of size and scope. JaxHax had a ton of projects on display, including a massive metal shark (left), a 3D printer that the team had 3D printed, and all sorts of other things. It was really interesting to speak with the guys about what they were doing with the makerlab. Check out our interview with the team:
