Our physical makerspace is the ultimate in Do-It-Yourself and equipped with affordable, open-source electronics; raw materials; workshop equipment such as 3D printers, metal and wood-working tools; and other awesome maker equipment. We also encourage and host meetups of community-led activities for all sorts of maker-related projects, ranging from robotics, raspberry pis, arduinos, wearables, hard-hacks and much more! While you're with us, do not hesitate to ask questions of our members and even other visitors - we encourage peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing - it's the best way to learn.

IOT for Communities

The IOT for Communities projects is a long-term collaboration between local communities, the Ministry of Resource Development and Information Technology, Politeknik Kota Kinabalu and Kinabalu Coders to implement LoRaWAN-based IOT (Internet of Things) sensor networks with urban and rural coverage. Each gateway is registered and shared via The Things Network (TTN) - a global distributed network of public gateways, enabling other developers/makers to re-use the available infrastructure for their own IOT devices.

Drones & ROV Challenge

The first Sabah MultiGP Drone Racing Competition and the Underwater Robotics Challenge was held concurrently in December 2017, jointly organised with Kelab Dron Sabah (Sabah Drone Club) and Politeknik Kota Kinabalu. Competitors in both events had to assemble their drones/ROVs and compete in a series of timed tasks. For drones, the competition saw two separate categories: professionals and amateurs, with teams hailing from as far as Kuala Lumpur, Sarawak and Brunei - making the first Sabah MultiGP Drone Racing Competition also an international drone racing competition!
