According to Neil Gershenfeld, the next big thing is personal fabrication - the ability to design and produce your own products, in your own home, with a machine that combines consumer electronics and industrial tools. Personal fabricators (PFs)MoreAccording to Neil Gershenfeld, the next big thing is personal fabrication - the ability to design and produce your own products, in your own home, with a machine that combines consumer electronics and industrial tools.

Personal fabricators (PFs) are about to revolutionize the world just as personal computers did a generation ago. PFs will bring the programmability of the digital world to the rest of the world, by being able to make almost anything - including new personal fabricators.

In Fab, Gershenfeld describes how personal fabrication is possible today, and how it is being used to meet local needs with locally developed solutions. He and his colleagues have created fab labs around the world, which, in his words, can mean a lab for fabrication, or simply a fabulous laboratory. Using the machines in one of these labs, children in inner-city Boston have made saleable jewelry from scrap material. Villagers in India used their lab to develop devices for monitoring food safety and agricultural engine efficiency.

Herders in the Lyngen Alps of northern Norway are developing wireless networks and animal tags so that their data can be as nomadic as their animals. And students at MIT have made everything from a defensive dress that protects its wearers personal space to an alarm clock that must be wrestled into silence.
