Open for business

Hello Wilmington and surrounding areas! We are pleased to finally be open to the public and are super pumped about the maker we have working in the space. We are already impressed with the ideas being developed in the space and feel pretty strongly that the Wilmington Makerspace is going to help folks get these ideas to market.

This is our first of many blogs that will cover a range of things. We will keep everyone up to speed on finished projects, specials, events, and even some industry insight on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). We like to brag about the insight we have in the space including Engineering, Electronics, Upholstery; the list goes on! Our goal is to help Wilmington people turn their ideas into a reality.

See some preliminary Makerspace products:

1. TacLace – Fastest Boot Lacing system on the market!

TacLace is the ultimate boot lacing system allowing boot wearers to get their boots on in about 10 seconds. This was developed by Andrew Williams, the makerspace owner, and was developed during a deployment in Afghanistan. See more at or on the Makerspace website.

2. ORIGOSafe – No texting while driving. No problem!

THE solution to distracted driving. ORIGOSafe is an ignition interlock system that requires drivers to dock their phones when operating their vehicle. Removal of the phone sounds an ungodly alarm and deauthorizes that phone to the vehicle, requiring the user to contact their administrator for reactivation. This was invented by Clay Skelton out of Roanoke, VA and developed by Andrew Williams of the Wilmington Makerspace. See more at or the Makerspace website.

There are many more ideas being developed within the space, but due to Intellectual Property protection, you’ll have to wait to hear about them!
