Makerspace items

Located in the Faculty of Information, at the University of Toronto’s St. George campus, the KMDI-Semaphore Makerspace provides faculty and students from across the Tri-Campus with a creative space where they can explore different technologies, be creative, and make things within a collaborative and safe environment.

The KMDI-Semaphore Makerspace has a variety of equipment available for members of the UofT community to use for research projects and related activities, including: 3D printers and scanners, Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, MakeyMakeys, knitting, sewing, and embroidery machines (and materials), soldering irons, HTC Vive headsets, adaptive gaming controllers, and more.

Part of the Knowledge Media Design Institute (KMDI) and Semaphore Lab, our Makerspace provides a place for people to learn, interact, and create with technology. The goal of the KMDI-Semaphore Makerspace is to critique and enhance the relationship between technology, media and society at large, all with the hope of creating and making things that improve the lives and enjoyment of others.
