"Opened in 2012, FabLab is located at the Laboratory of Visual Culture (Department of Environment Costructions and Design, SUPSI). It is the first one of its kind in south Switzerland. The FabLab is open mainly to SUPSI students, in particular for those who are taking the Master of advanced studies in interaction design and to workshop attendees.A FabLab is a space open to students where it is possible to make ideas come true. Coming from the industrial precision, the tradition of handcrafted objects and the power of open-source, the FabLab allows students to play around their interaction design projects. Common applications include proof of concepts, functional testings and product mockups."
