Pledge “Fab-Lab”

"I will contribute $200 to buy a Fab Lab for a developing country but only if 100 other people will do the same."

— Duncan @

Deadline to sign up by: 25th December 2009
1 person signed up, 99 more were needed

More details
Fab Labs are small laboratories that people can use to make almost anything they want!


Fab Labs can be particularly useful in the developing world, where people can use them to cheaply manufacture solutions to problems faced by their community. At the same time, they provide sustainable business opportunities for locals.

The great thing is, a Fab Lab costs only $20,000!

I'll put in $200 if 100 other people do the same. Then we can vote on which developing country to put it in.

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.
