Armand Bombardier Museum of Ingenuity has opened a new exhibition all about the Fab Lab community. What are Fab Labs? They are at the center of a worldwide movement of people who use their curiosity and passion to create workshops where participants can imagine new objects that can be distributed all over the planet. One example of a creation that came out of Fab Labs is an easy-to-assemble wooden bicycle built using low-cost recycled materials. Are you ready to travel? Photo credit: ComediHa!
