Bienvenue au FabLab du Musée des Sciences de Chicago

Bienvenue au FabLab du Musée des Sciences de Chicago | FabLabs & Open Design | Scoop.it

Cette semaine, l’université de Cergy-Pontoise a inauguré son FacLab, premier FabLab dans une université française. De manière similaire, au cœur du musée des sciences et de l’industrie de la ville de Chicago, un atelier met à disposition du public des machines industrielles et de prototypage rapide. Les FabLabs forment un réseau international d’éducateurs, de bricoleurs et d’innovateurs. Ils annoncent l’avènement d’une technologie bottom-up de l’innovation par les individus. Selon Neil Gershenfeld, leur inventeur, « les FabLabs abattent les frontières de l’industrialisation en équipant les individus pour qu’ils fabriquent et créent au lieu de consommer

Le FabLab de Barcelone | Association pour l'Autogestion

Le FabLab de Barcelone est l’un des plus anciens et des mieux équipés. Il dépend d’un institut d’architecture, c’est pourquoi nombre de ses projets sont reliés à l’habitat, la ville et l’urbanisme. La seconde originalité de ce Fablab est l’ambition de créer un réseau de Fablab dans Barcelone avec l’aide de la municipalité, afin de stimuler le tissu économique, de favoriser la réindustrialisation de la ville, et de produire localement avec les ressources disponibles. Bien que ces objectifs ne soient pas spécifiquement autogestionnaires, ils méritent d’être considérés pour s’en inspirer, et se les approprier.

Can anyone be a designer? The question is more relevant than ever. Today, more than half of Dutch people do something related to design or fashion in their free time. Meanwhile, a substantial number of Dutch designers has no formal training.

FAB LAB A Fabricated Revolution? | Zack Preble

FAB LAB A Fabricated Revolution? | Zack Preble | FabLabs & Open Design | Scoop.it

In many respects, much of what Fab Lab represents is an effort to bridge a gap between the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’. This divide leads us to the final aspect of the analogy, one not explicitly made by Gershenfeld but relevant nevertheless. Much talk was made in the 1990’s about the digital divide and the implications of such an even distribution of resources. The coming digital divide is one of a material nature, where some will have access to personal fabrication while others will not. Fab Labs is preemptively addressing this gap by targeting areas where the need is greater.
