FABMOBs does a bit of urban-hacking, stretching the meaning of the region’s electric car sharing service, using it as a source of mobile energy to power the printers.
We use either portable generators, municipal energy sources (when available), and for the ATMOStag project, we used the energy plugs in vehicles in Paris’s electric car sharing service, that is widely available in the region.
- FABMOBs (fabrication + mobility) is a platform for 3Dprinting.
- ATMOStag (atmosphere + tag) is the idea that we can mark or express a location by representing its atmosphere at a given point in space and time. It is a product of the FABMOBs platform.
