Repairing things yourself will become more important in the future. On the one hand, because developers and producers intentionally integrate errors and predetermined breaking points into products, so-called planned obsolescence. And on the other hand, raw materials are becoming increasingly scarce and thus more expensive. With the availability of open source software and 3D printers, this trend can be counteracted, in the spirit of the Repair Cafés: repair instead of throwing away!
FabLab stands for Fabrication Laboratory and was developed by + NEIL GERSHENFELD + (MIT) as a course of study. The concept is simple: it gives creatives access to digitally controlled machines, such as: 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC milling machines – very easily, quickly and for everyone!
