Tilden Lab Overview.jpg

Most home workshops have you looking at garage walls or cement bricks. Mark Tilden, father of BEAM robotics, built himself a sweet setup high above the streets of Hong Kong.

Having spent most of my lab life staring at basement walls or security bars, recently sorted myself a home lab 600 feet high overlooking Kowloon Park and the Hong Kong skyline. It’s got half-inch thick smoked glass surfaces (solder and superglue doesn’t stick) and an awesome AV setup. Glass feels cool against your arms on hot days. Advantage.
