    Digitally Crafted Tampa Hackerspace Token. You get us like a kitten gets a ball of yarn! You understand hacker culture and you probably have a soldering station on your desk right now. We’re going to break out the laser cutter and send you a digitally crafted token with our logo embossed on it. These acrylic disks will be marvels of engineering yet artistically refined. They will be truly commemorative collectibles and we’re breaking the mold after our initial run. You will be the center of attention as you stroll down the boulevard skillfully flipping your token into the air as you enjoy the warmth of our affection and appreciation. Members of the opposite sex will immediately recognize your goodness and desire you. We'll also throw in a couple of our Hackerspace stickers so that you can have one to keep and one to give to an adoring fan.

We wanted to name the first-born^H^H^H^H hatched^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hspawned after you but the biohacking contingent hasn’t worked their way up to higher order primates quite yet. Instead, we’re going to name a significant hackerspace event after you.

    Quadcopter “drone” video shoot. A great reward for business backers. We will come out to the location of your choice (within Hillsborough or surrounding counties) and shoot stabilized high-definition video footage and/or still photos from a quadcopter “drone”. You can see a couple sample shots in our original Kickstarter video. Use the footage as a marketing tool for a local business or jazz up your website. There is nothing like a vertigo-inducing shot of your business from an unmanned UAV to instill confidence and a sense of wonder in your employees and valued customers. There are some locations that we may not be able to shoot such as restricted airspace, anywhere where there are crowds of people below, and over water. If you’re not sure about your location, ask before you pledge.

    Full-sized TARDIS-style Police Call Box. This is the Police Call Box that we built to win the Radio Shack Hackerspace Challenge. It is a full-scale replica of the call box used for the 1976 Doctor Who TARDIS. It measures 4 ft x 4 ft and is nearly 8 ft tall. The structure was built by a professional carpenter. The exterior is fully painted except for the roof (which nobody under 7’ tall can see). The inside sadly isn’t any bigger than the outside but it is finished with a small angled shelf and interior lighting. None of the Police Box Lander electronics or LED lighting are included but the light fixture on the roof is.
    This is a great reward for the exceptional Doctor Who fan with space for the box.
    We will work with the backer on delivery of the call box within a reasonable distance of the Tampa Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) where the box is on display. Moving the box safely will likely require an enclosed truck and multiple people. We can help provide the people to load (and unload within the Tampa Bay area - Hillsborough and surrounding counties) but the backer must provide the truck.

    Sponsor a work table and get a logo shirt. We acquired ten magnificent specimens for use in our workshops and for classes. These amazing structures will be bastions of productivity and invention. Amazing projects will be created here.

As a sponsor for this reward, you understand at a deep and profound level how a well designed tool helps unleash your inner hacker. Other hackers will worship your name when they see it emblazoned upon the table. Plus, we’ll send you a fabulous shirt and a handwritten thank you card.

    Training Center Naming Rights. We wanted to proclaim you Master of the Universe but our current theories on multi-dimensional space and string theory prevent us from acknowledging that the universe does indeed exist. Suffice it to say that if one is willing to accept the illusion of physical space, your mastery would be supreme. For this level, you will be the master of our space for at least a year. We will grant you naming rights for our training center for a one year period. When we have our grand opening to dedicate the space, you will be accorded all the rights and privileges of a VIP and will occupy a place of honor for the duration of the festivities. We'll also throw in a handful of our Hackerspace stickers for you and your adoring fans.
