A Fab Lab is a community space for people to gather and fabricate their dreams and ideas.
A formal definition of a Fab Lab can be seen at the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms. The Fab Foundation’s website has a map of many Fab Labs around the world and information about the Fab Lab charter and how to start a Fab Lab.
Fab Lab San Diego is my little corner for inspiration and outreach. We’re located in the heart of Makers Quarter. Here are a few links to some videos that give a good sense of Fab Lab San Diego, its mission, and its history:
- Fab Lab San Diego’s Relaunch in Makers Quarter (Video by KPBS)
- An view of a day at the former Fab Lab San Diego location (Video by Fab Lab SD)
- Prototyping for Balboa Park - Fun in a Cupcake Car!
Learn. Build. Share. Fab Labs and their outreach inspire individuals and build vibrant, innovative communities. I hope you visit one soon.
