About

Welcome to SoutHACKton, a community of makers, tinkerers and artists in and around Southampton. We’re hosted by (and part of) So Make It – the Southampton Makerspace. Our aim is to share skills, knowledge and tools to allow anyone to create something amazing, regardless
of experience. If you always
wanted to make something but don’t know how then our members will be
more than happy to help you.

We have regular meetings of people who enjoy creating or modifying
software and/or hardware and want to meet other like-minded people.
Ultimately our aim is to support all sorts of interests, for example:
craft, electronics, wood- and metal-work, knitting, programming,
modification (a.k.a. hacking), robotics and home automation. Experience
is unnecessary – interest is all we require! We currently have an open evening on the last Tuesday of the month at Southampton Makerspace.

Topics that our existing members are interested in include:

  • home automation/augmentation
  • robotics
  • circuit bends
  • programming
  • computer interfaces
  • wiimote hacking
  • Arduino
  • gadgets
  • mobile computing
  • PVR creation/improvement
  • programming
  • augmented reality
  • and much more

If you’re interested in any of these topics, or have another interest
you want to share, why not join us?
