Geek.Zone is the community for geeky people! Want to find new, geeky friends? Geek.Zone is the place to be!
We are building a fantastic, new community hub in Coventry – Geek.Zone/01! This will be a space for everyone to create, play and connect, 24×7. Membership will cost just £1 + donation each month, with the recommended donation being £30.
It will be perfect for
- Relaxing and socialising
- Making – anything
We have found the property, we have the equipment, so all we need is you! Join Geek.Zone now, to be the first to get your membership card!
What will you be able to do in the Geek.Zone?
Super Mega Fast Internet
With an uncontended (only for GZ members), gigabit upload & download internet connection – over 65x faster than the local average – you will be able to,
- get your videos on to YouTube in no time
- play online games with zero lag
- watch movies in all their 4K glory
Our quiet private rooms & open shared space will allow you to relax, work or play, however you prefer to do so. We have already been donated several sofas ready for you! We just need you!
Did you ever dream of the “Beauty and the Beast” library? If you love books then the Geek.Zone will be the place to go! We will have so many that you will never run out! Whether you like to cosy up with a favourite fiction or you are doing research for your thesis, you will probably find the book you need at the Geek.Zone. You will also be able to borrow it as you would from a public library, but without the late fees!
Tools for Creativity
Creative tools like 3D Printers and Laser Cutters will help you to make whatever you want. This could help you to create the next big toy, make a part that the manufacturer no longer produces, or, well, anything!
The cinema is great but the price adds up! Geek.Zone will have a huge collection of DVDs and Blurays that you can play at any time. We will also hold cinema nights to show the top voted movie that month, so you’ll get the whole cinema experience without the cinema prices. We’ll even throw in some free popcorn!
Together, we will purchase several high powered gaming computers. This will allow you to play the latest games not only online but also with others in the Geek.Zone. Additionally, these computers will be perfect for other high demand uses, such as video editing and graphic design.
Board & Tabletop Games
Geek.Zone already has a large collection of board games, however, some of them take a bit too long to play for one of our evening events! Geek.Zone/01 will allow you to play any game, any time, for as long as you want.
Our Current Kit
All this equipment is just sitting in our storage facility right now. With your help, we will be able to make it available 24/7 at Geek.Zone/01!
Who is a Geek.Zone for?
Everyone! The more people join together as part of the Geek.Zone community, the better it becomes. Since we will be able to acquire resources through ((community purchasing)), items that might be out of reach for many alone can be made available for everyone to use.
These will make it perfect for;
- remote workers
- …and many more!
The following resources will be available for use at Geek.Zone/01 from the day that it opens;
- The entire video game collection
- The entire board game collection
- Green screen, for video production
Over the following weeks, Geek.Zone will look to gather more resources, including but not limited to;
- Server racks
- Laser cutter
- 3D printer
- Gaming computers
