FAB Teletransportation


A project by: Fab Lab Sevilla Team with partners around the world


The Fab Teletransportation is a project of the Fab Lab Sevilla in collaboration with several other fab labs around the world. Inspired by this interesting video available below by Nueveojos, which tells a bit the concept of “fab labs” and the idea of ​​custom fabrication. The project FAB Teletransportation tries to make ludicaly real the dream of teleportation. The idea is based on a parametric file of a cup that can be modified and printed on a 3D printer by anyone, anywhere in the world. The code can be modified and manufactured locally, trying to discuss this with the concepts of “co-creation” and “local production”, as these concepts discussed within the framework of the third industrial revolution.
