Habitat for Humanity

11.19.2012 by Andy Rogers

Most of us at Key Tech thoroughly enjoy renovating things…it’s just in our blood as designers and engineers to take something old and outdated and transform it into something new and useful. Whether it’s refurbishing an old bike, or renovating a run-down vaudeville theater into our office, Key Techer’s are innately passionate about applying their talents and resources to improve something. Thus, it’s no surprise that a handful of Key Tech volunteers spent a day recently in the South Baltimore neighborhood of Brooklyn volunteering for Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake.

Pinhole Camera to Venus

On June 5, Venus passed between the Earth the sun causing a rare celestial event. This event caught some of us at Key Tech by surprise, and at the same time we felt the need to see this event that will not happen again until 2125. As such, we spent part of our afternoon trying to devise ways to stare at the sun without hurting our eyes, and the best option we found was to build ourselves a pinhole camera.

With a Little Luck…

05.02.2012 by Brian Lipford

We were in the right place at the right time…and we knew it. About 9 years ago, we were looking to move our company.  We were small, but had outgrown our old space.  We were literally hours away from signing a new lease deal in a nondescript building, replete with florescent lights and elevators, when [...]
