Fab Lab of the Week: Collab in New York City [video]
This week’s featured Fab Lab is Collab, a New York City-based think tank and fabrication laboratory.
As co-founders Mark and Adina Levin explain in the video below, Collab is an art and science collaborative. Designers, engineers and scientists share the space to work on their own ideas but also collaborate on projects. If someone has an idea and needs specialized skills, they can tap into the talent pool and combined experience at Collab.
In the 5,500 square foot facility, shared equipment available to members includes 3D printer, laser cutter, woodshop, sewing studio.
Below is a video interview and feature produced by Fast Company.
Last year, Collab supported Maker Faire with a project called Electric Doodle. Kids who were attending Maker Faire could design their own art displays with LEDs and get a real-time print out of their creations.
