Hardware Lab

The Hardware Lab is a space for researchers to design and build a proof of concept and for members to build, assemble, and iterate upon products.

Users can access benchtop space to iterate on prototypes, assemble devices at a small scale, and package and ship components. We support a range of activities. Learn more about membership to the Sydney Knowledge Hub here
