 VHS provides a physical space where hackers, computer geeks, engineers, circuit benders, crafters, and other creative types can gather to share ideas, equipment, opinions, and beer.   We aim to create a sort of 24/7 brain gym, where members can show up and work on personal projects, consult with friends, and learn new tricks. ​ More than just a studio space, we focus on sharing all sorts of knowledge within a friendly and collaborative atmosphere. VHS provides a physical space where hackers, computer geeks, engineers, circuit benders, crafters, and other creative types can gather to share ideas, equipment, opinions, and beer.   We aim to create a sort of 24/7 brain gym, where members can show up and work on personal projects, consult with friends, and learn new tricks. ​ More than just a studio space, we focus on sharing all sorts of knowledge within a friendly and collaborative atmosphere.
