Manchester in Mind x Design Manchester

We’re a bit biased here obviously but we have to give a mention to this amazing festival returning this month. It all kicked off last night at the launch of Manchester in Mind with talks from talented folks like Tash Wilcocks from Hyperisland and our mate Dave. You can go see the exhibition at Kosmonaut and check out all the other awesome events coming up over the next month. We’ll no doubt see you all there!

They created a 3D printed wheelchair using their school’s Makerbot. Loads more on it via the Wired article we saw it on first.
