Summary In the course of the digital revolution, FabLabs (short for Fabrication Laboratory) make high-tech production technologies available for small teams or individuals, who can make there ?almost everything? themselves. FabLabs are simultaneously workshop and laboratory, equipped with computer controlled tools such as laser cutters, CNC milling machines and 3D printers. Following on from desktop publishing and digital video editing, the production of physical products is now possible for anyone anywhere. In the first section of the publication, various authors provide insight on topics such as the emergence of FabLabs, the philosophy behind them and their commercial aspects as well as the techniques, methods and processes involved. After this, the artistic and production processes in a Dutch FabLab are presented as a real-world example. Around 30 noteworthy products are featured, each over several pages, in the Fab Gallery at the end of the book, thus demonstrating the full diversity of possibilities offered by FabLabs.
