“Imagination is more important than knowledge“, famous genius Albert Einstein once was quoted. More than ever, his words are true. In his time, Einstein probably couldn’t have dreamt of a machine that could turn almost every thinkable design into reality; nowadays we are close to having this machine in our hands, at the Fab Lab on Spang Campus.

A Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) is a fully kitted fabrication workshop with a capability to turn ideas and concepts into reality. The video below gives an impression of the sheer endless possibilities, made possible with an array of computer controlled tools that cover several different length scales and various materials.

It’s definitely more than a machine, it’s part of a revolutionary movement, as famous professor Jeremy Rifkin noted earlier: as significant as the shift from agriculture to the early industrial era. While fab labs have yet to compete with mass production and its associated economies of scale in fabricating widely distributed products, they have already shown the potential to empower individuals to create smart devices for themselves. These devices can be tailored to local or personal needs in ways that are not practical or economical using mass production.

The possibilities are endless and only “restrained by your own creativity” and persistence. Whether you are a young entrepeneur who wants to create a proof of concept for a new product or a multi national that wants to do rapid prototyping or a young architect that wants to build a house.
