FABLAB is the place where you can use digital technologies to move ideas to products. The lab is designed to support creativity and innovation and to provide access to sophisticated equipment at a reasonable cost. The lab is focused on the use of digital technologies that will drive the future of product development.
FABLAB brings prototyping capability to the community !
FABLAB – the Digital Fabrication Laboratory- is the brainchild of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Dr. Neil Gershenfeld. The Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA) at MIT does laboratory research on technologies for personal fabrication and the FABLAB represents the practical application of that research.
Using off-the-shelf, industrial grade fabrication and electronic tools and open-source software and programs from the CBA’s researchers any location in the world could be a high-tech machine shop.
Take a Prototype to Product and to Market
