About

Snepo FabLab is 200 square metres of dedicated space with a range of machines, tools and materials available. An interdisciplinary space designed to support commercial clients, entrepreneurs and students working with emerging technologies. We also have regular community open days to help facilitate the development of open source solutions with a particular focus on the local community. 

What is a FabLab?

Fab labs provide widespread access to modern means for invention. They began as an outreach project from MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA). CBA assembled millions of dollars in machines for research in digital fabrication, ultimately aiming at developing programmable molecular assemblers that will be able to make almost anything. Fab labs fall between these extremes, comprising roughly fifty thousand dollars in equipment and materials that can be used today to do what will be possible with tomorrow's personal fabricators.

Digital Whisper
by Sami Sabik

Digital Whispers derives from Sami Sabik fascination for the (im)perfection of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Using IBM’s Watson technology, Digital Whispers performs natural voice synthesis and voice recognition algorithms on seven computers that replaces the humans in the game of Chinese Whispers.

NadiX
by Wearable X

Nadi X is a line of activated yoga apparel that listens & responds to your body, guiding you through your yoga flow. These pants are designed with embedded technology. Co-founded by Ben Moir the prototyping was accelerated in the Lab where the company bases its engineering and technical team.

FLUID DYNAMICS
BY SNEPO RESEARCH

Snepo has been experimenting with fluid dynamics and particle system. The simulations have been hardware accelerated using GPU calculations with over 200,000 particles animating at 60 frames per second (and thats on a relatively old Nvidia GeForce GPU). Get in touch to find our more.
