How could the production of tomorrow look like? Sustainable and social production is an important issue against the background of increasing scarcity of resources and poor working conditions. Instead of buying ready-made „out-of-the-box“ products, technologies and developments that enable you to produce as much as possible yourself are becoming increasingly important. An interesting development in this area is open source hardware, also called Open Source Hardware: Here, free blueprints for the production of various electronic and mechanical parts are made available.
During this tour of the Ars Electronica MaterialLab, you’ll learn about the new everyday materials currently being researched that can be manufactured without environmentally harmful production processes, using biological processes.
