The co-founders of Technology Will Save Us introduce us to DIY dissection and the creation of new gadgets by starting from the inside out.

Daniel Hirschmann and Bethany Koby understand how important technology is to the modern world – they also recognize its benefits: it crosses boundaries of geography, gender, class and sexuality. However, most of us are unaware of how our favorite objects actually work and how to fix and modify them. The two founders of Technology Will Save Us presented their innovative, fun solutions at PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON, calling the offerings a “haberdashery for technology.”

The company specializes in creative DIY kits – including Electro-Dough, DIY Speakers, a Thirsty Plant Kit and a Lumiphone Kit, which teaches you how to solder metals. The kits are sold at temporary kiosks within UK stores. The two also host creative workshops, which allow makers to work in community.
