The Champaign Urbana Community Fab Lab has truly become a staple of the DIY/Maker community in Champaign-Urbana and they are returning to the Heartland Maker Fest to show off all they have to offer. Be sure to stop, say hi, and get hands on with some of the fun equipment they will be bringing!
As they would say:
The Champaign-Urbana Community Fab Lab is an open and collaborative workshop space for computer-driven innovation, design and fabrication. We enable makers of all kinds to imagine, design and create using open source software and DIWO (do it with others!) methodologies. We do this by working with a local and international network to actively cultivate public engagement through community-focused art-entrepreneurship, research and education.
