124 Let's play FabLabing!
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

What does it take to build a FabLab? What does it take to make it sustainable? What does it mean to build a network of FabLab? This cooperative boardgame is a fun way to take participants through the main concepts and let them simulate operations of a FabLab. Players take turns making actions such as allocating resources along building and developing new labs. Placement of characters (that a participant will role-play) will influence access to resources on different regions. By carefully planning along with helping others will lead the players on increasing their morale, thus succeeding in cultivating the Fablab spirit across the globe. A group discussion will follow after gameplay where participants can discuss about the game and it's correlation to the realities of Fablab, the challenges and issues revolving on a community space for local entrepreneurship.

104 Material cycles step 1 : Crafting Bioplastics
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

We believe in a world where anyone, anywhere can fabricate with the materials around them. Digital fabrication is shifting where and how we can fabricate our physical world. This shift opens a critical need: for local production, we need local materials. We need to move from rigid global supply chains to flexible local networks, from intensive resource extraction to diverse nutrient cycling. Just as other organisms do, we need to learn to use the materials around us.
Our workshop will introduce key tools for using local materials such as bioplastics, natural composites, and recycled feedstock. We introduce a library of open source recipes made from local ingredients. We offer open source tools for measuring material properties, generating data that can be used for simulating the performance of designs made with these materials. We invite you to join us in developing these tools for your Fab Lab and the global network. Circular processes involve prime matter in the loop of design and production. How can we DIY craft our own material in order to design the performance we wish to acquire. How can we use sustainable biodegradable matter and involve the maker culture into making their own materials. In this workshop we will work with bioplastic recipes, kombucha bacterial skin and other DIY recipes to craft our prime materials. DAY1: Make: bio-based and recycled. Explore our library of local materials, how to make and model their behavior.

111 FabDoc - Version Control Tool for makers
Limited Capacity filling up

We are all facing a lot of works of documentation beyond making, especially when we would like to share and collaboratively develop "hardware" projects. 
There are too many version control system (VCS) tools for "software" projects so that we could fortunately join any large-scale software projects, such as Linux, if they are open source. But what happen to "hardware" projects? Can we enlarge the scale of these projects with VCS tools? 
We are trying to hack the way of documenting for all of makers' projects, simply with Raspberry Pi, camera module, and goggle.

115 Mind-Controlled Paramecia
Limited Capacity filling up

Using the Emotiv Epoc+ neuroheadset we will elicit a movement response in paramecia. These microorganisms have a specific locomotion mechanism called 'galvanotaxis', which is why they move toward the cathode when exposed to an electrical field. Thus, for our setup we are putting an array of electrodes in direct contact with the paramecia medium, allowing us to reconfigure it programmatically and control the direction of the paramecia movement at our will.
For the workshop we are creating a custom 3d-printed container that will facilitate the visualization of the microorganisms through a portable digital microscope connected to a computer. Using software libraries we will create a videogame interface for using the paramecia as our main character.
The purpose of this workshop is to put the science exploration closer to the common citizen and inspire the next generation of bio curious and DIY biologists.

204 Material cycles step 2 : Making Measuring Devices
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

We believe in a world where anyone, anywhere can fabricate with the materials around them. Digital fabrication is shifting where and how we can fabricate our physical world. This shift opens a critical need: for local production, we need local materials. We need to move from rigid global supply chains to flexible local networks, from intensive resource extraction to diverse nutrient cycling. Just as other organisms do, we need to learn to use the materials around us.
Our workshop will introduce key tools for using local materials such as bioplastics, natural composites, and recycled feedstock. We introduce a library of open source recipes made from local ingredients. We offer open source tools for measuring material properties, generating data that can be used for simulating the performance of designs made with these materials. We invite you to join us in developing these tools for your Fab Lab and the global network. Day 2: Measure: using uTest, a universal testing that can be made in your Fab Lab, we will measure the mechanical properties of materials we made. We will explore how to use this materials data in design simulation.

What does it take to build a FabLab? What does it take to make it sustainable? What does it mean to build a network of FabLab? This cooperative board-game is a fun way to take participants through the main concepts and let them simulate operations of a FabLab. Players take turns making actions such as allocating resources along building and developing new labs. Placement of characters (that a participant will role-play) will influence access to resources on different regions. By carefully planning along with helping others will lead the players on increasing their morale, thus succeeding in cultivating the Fablab spirit across the globe. A group discussion will follow after gameplay where participants can discuss about the game and it's correlation to the realities of Fablab, the challenges and issues revolving on a community space for local entrepreneurship.

Bio Georg Hoehne
Georg, a team member of Field Ready on the ground team in Jordan, has been working for
several years for think tanks, NGOs, grassroots organisations and international companies
following is BA in International Relations from the University of Essex, and a MSc in Global
Politics from the London School of Economics. Frustrated with the lack of innovation in the
development and disaster relief sectors he started to implement a human cantered design
project in a slum in India where the inhabitants of a slum together with universities, grassroots
NGOs and a product safety organisation. The resulting upcycled water heater lead him to
implement more projects in refugee camps in Berlin, Germany, Shenzhen, China and Hong
Kong. As an Innovation Advisor for Field Ready he promotes the making in the Field approach
using recycled materials. He recently finished a development project to field test various low
tech development solutions in host communities in Jordan. Throughout his work, he developed
a unique Human Centred Design approach to implement sustainable development projects.

319 NERO Drones
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Commonly referred as an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), drones are becoming construction techniques, photogrammetry, transportation, agriculture, security, rescue, environmental research and many different applications. As Peter Drucker said “What gets measured gets managed“. Data interpretation is, indeed, part of every daily life in our networked society. The ability of drones to extract data and translate surrounding conditions into numeric information, turns UAV into a highly valuable technology.
 
Exploiting nowadays Fab Lab capabilities we are now able to digitally produce drones by ourselves, and to deeply understand all the techniques and technologies involved. This knowledge is now allowing us to quickly customize ad-hoc drone solutions, but also to digitally distribute, repair and replicate it where needed. From cheap solutions used as learn platforms to fully featured drones having different kind of equipment onboard, we will present and discuss the current state of the art of Fab Lab drones and their applications, in order to let anybody from the community able to access, adapt and use it, but also to provide us feedback about developments and potential applications.
What has been done in the past 2 years?
At the beginning developed as Fab Academy projects, different drone solutions have been released as open source projects. This is the case of standard drones components like the satshakit based flight controller boards, wood and 3D printed frames, protective cages. Furthermore, fully documented complete drones designs have been published, like satshacopter or nero. As main applications, we have been using them as learning platform for teaching digital fabrication, and for data collection and analysis scenarios.
FAB 13 Activities
NERO Drones, in which we will present our drone developments. Setup an hackathon-style workshop in which we help the participants in develop a new drone prototype, then released as open source in the community
Which are de spected FAB 13 Outcomes from the activities
Let the Fab Lab community be able to easily use, adapt and replicate our drones. Understand and identify the most important applications and potential applications of drones in Fab Labs and their context.
Developed outcome*
A research about the possible future of Fab Drones. A new drone prototype built during the conference in a (hackathon-style), that will try to address one of the identified potential ideas.
