We are lucky enough in Colorado to have some of the coolest business a geek could ever want. One of my favorites is @Sparkfun just outside of Boulder, CO. Spark Fun has just about every chip, board, sensor and gizmo you can think of. If you want to build something techy, this is the mother ship of parts.
But, better than that… Spark Fun does tours… and you can find things like this motorized zombie just hanging out in the shop next to the 3D printers and CNC machines.
Kid friendly, adult interesting and a fun look inside one of the most successful start-ups in Boulder.
