WHAT IS MUSHROOM CLOUD?
Mushroomcloud Maker Space is the first Maker Space in Pudong, Shanghai. It's an open Maker Space, funded by Puruan Incubator for open space and by DFRobot for hardware and technical support. There're independent studios, public areas, supplement stores and storage rooms here. It's hereby for harware lovers, programmers, designers, DIYers and even tech-innovative teams developing new technologies. Mushroomcloud Maker Space officially opened to the public at 2:00 p.m. on November 9, 2013. In the last 3 years, it held hundreds of open night and member meetings, and dozens of workshops for the public. Since its very first opening, more than 10, 000 people have visited here.
People come to Mushroomcloud to make their ideas into reality. Someone solely creates things for hobbies. Someone transforms his works because of some previous defects. Yet someone sets up a team forming a start-up based on their incredible accomplished former works. Besides enjoying what we do, we share our happiness. Many of our friends offer DIY workshops and specific courses, sharing their gained knowledge. Many specialists show us how to make robots, 3D printers, electronic skateboards and lazer keyboards and make them with us. They also give workshops.
WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE?
CAN WE CREATE A START-UP HERE?
As a representative of the nation-class Maker Spaces, relying on its advantages over open-source hardware, Mushroom Cloud is dedicated to becoming a new hardware incubator. Entrepreneurs have access to the incubator with their projects. Not only can they have space to launch their projects, they can slao get the deep-mined instructions and help from various areas in the incubator without having to register a company first.
