Happylab - Vienna Fab Lab[edit]

In order to be developed and put in motion, ideas need space. So-called "fab labs" don't only provide this space, they also supply the machines necessary for making individual projects happen. The term "fab lab" is short for "fabrication laboratory" and refers to a public high-tech workshop where diverse products can be created individually using computer-controlled machines.

Happylab is one of more than 100 fab labs on the World. They all foster innovation by giving people access to complex production technologies. A fab lab can be used to make (almost) anything. Learning by doing is an essential characteristic. Training in fab labs based on doing projects and learning from peers.

Happylab isn't just a laboratory and workshop however; it serves most primarily as a meeting point for people of all ages who are interested in creative engagement with modern technology. It is a place where ideas can be introduced, discussed and immediately put into action.

Happy Evening[edit]

Every Wednesday (except holidays) from 6pm, the Happylab holds the so-called "Happy Evening", where newcomers can get an insight into the laboratory's possibilities.
