Tx/Rx Labs is Houston’s Hackerspace[edit]

We are a project-based team of makers with backgrounds in the creative arts: electronic circuitry, music composition, 3D printing, computer science and security, screenprinting, fashion design, and even haute cuisine.

Visit us on Open House Fridays at 8pm till 11pm

Visit with our members. Share your own projects. Enjoy some home cooking. Hang out with a friendly crowd of technology and craft enthusiasts.

Visit us on Pancake Sundays starting at 11am. Eat pancakes and discuss current science/tech events and projects.

Visit us on Thursday nights for a movie and desoldering.

Our goals are to bring creative people together, to serve as an incubator for free thought and inquiry, to produce art, inventions, consumables and ideas that challenge convention, solve problems and create a meaningful community in the process.

We have tools![edit]

One of our main goals is to gather tools for our members that would be difficult to get access to otherwise. Either because they are too expensive, too large, or because they take specialized knowledge to operate.

Read a short post about it here.

Along with these large tools we have an assortment of hand tools and shop tools. Electronics equipment and more.

Where to sign up[edit]

You can become a member by coming to one of our Open House Friday’s and telling Patrick (President) or Wes that you want to be a member. Or visit http://www.txrxlabs.org/membership/ and join online. The membership fee gets you access to tools, collective wisdom, and a racous list-serve! We have been known to stay late and turn the volume to eleven. We look forward to welcoming you to Tx/Rx Labs.
