About us

We believe everyone is a maker and that making reconnects us to our physical world. When we play, tinker and create we learn and discover passions and skills we didn't know we had. Technology has been closed for too long and we believe it is time that everyone has the access and skills to use technology as a tool for creativity and problem solving.

We create accessible, fun and beautifully designed DIY Gadgets that contain everything you need make and code yourself. Our kits instigate 21st century learning - around the kitchen table and in the classroom. Our growing collection of kits are all designed around the everyday activities we love like cycling, gaming, gardening and music - we think everyone learns more when they care about what they are making. Our kits range in skill, age and time to make - but all of them are all awesome gadgets!

Our kits are being used by 1000s of young people in Code and STEM Clubs all over the UK, 100s of schools and sold in retail and online shops like Maplins, The Science Museum, the Conran Shop, Brit&Co, The Exploratorium and more. 

Technology Will Save Us has been featured in the Guardian, Wired, Telegraph, FT, Fast Company and in numerous publications and blogs. We have partnered with Code Club, Prince's Trust, BBC and our DIY Gamer Kit has been acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) as part of their permanent collection. On top of this we have an amazing group of investors and advisors ranging from Lance Howarth CEO of the Raspberry Pi foundation, Chris Mairs entrepreneur and chairman of Code Club, Alasdair McPherson serial angel investor and TechStars mentor and others. We've also won grants from the likes of Google, NESTA and InnovateUK.

We have a pipeline of exciting products, a growing list of new partners and a globe of people we want to bring the joy of making to.

Why are we exciting?

Our journey of Technology Will Save Us started in 2012, with interns packing kits on our founders kitchen table. In the last year, we have grown from a team of 4 to 24 and represent 8 different countries! We are nestled in the heart of creative East London, in what we call our little 'tech utopia'. We have two amazing spaces on the same street where our team of makers, marketeers, finance, production, educators, technologists and sales people work, collaborate, scheme up new ideas and deliver amazing products all over the world.

One of our spaces is dedicated to production and R&D. This is our mini factory where we develop, test and assemble our kits. Its a full making and fabrication space kitted out with all the tools, gadgets and gear we need to make amazing things! One of our goals is to re-imagine the production model and explore how we can continue to produce our kits close to the point of demand. We think globally and make locally.

Everyone who works with us gets involved in making. Whether though workshops around the UK, events in places like the House of Commons to a local school or making their own DIY Speaker, everyone is apart of the process.

What is our culture like?

We are a creative and driven bunch with a passion for technology, learning and making an impact. We pride ourselves on creating an environment that is supportive, empathetic and collaborative. We work hard and play often - usually with team drinks, community events, meet-ups in tech city, loads of conferences and our lovely holiday parties.

We work iteratively and naturally in an agile way. As makers we pilot, prototype ideas and test them - whether they be new products or new financial systems we put things into use to know how to make them better. We love streamlining process, improving our approaches and learning new things. We are always learning.

Above all we want Technology Will Save Us to create amazing products that make a huge impact in peoples lives, while creating a great business where people can grow and do the best work of their lives.
