Kickstarter's Future Fab Lab and More at the 2016 World Maker Faire

Share this post


Kickstarter’s devotion to creative projects means we’re always on the lookout for groundbreaking tools that open up radical new possibilities for designers, artists, and makers of all stripes. And at this weekend’s World Maker Faire at the New York Hall of Science, we’ll present The Future Fablab: a collection of machines that turn our digital dreams into physical reality. This diverse array of Kickstarted technology translates processes typically found on factory floors to your desktop, automating everything from circuit-board assembly to metal cutting. We’re honored to be working with this wildly innovative group of creators and can’t wait to see what new projects makers create — and maybe even Kickstart — with their marvelous inventions.



Here’s a roundup of what you’ll find at our booth, a pair of talks from Kickstarter creators, and a small sampling of the dozens of Kickstarted projects that will be on display at this gathering of artists, technologists, and creative curiosity seekers.
