The 4th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

Fablab Solidaire Senécole  -  Senegal

The art created by a painter and two other youngsters is an interactive canvas that detects touch and replies with spoken information. It is connected and embeds in the work a video character who tells their story. The wooden frame is made in the FabLab, along with the electronics that make it interactive and animated. The team used electronics boards (NodeMCU and Bare Conductive), a projector for mapping, loudspeakers, a welding station, the MapMap software and Arduino.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

Since 2015, we have offered free training in our Solidarity FabLabs to young people leading difficult lives. In the FabLabs they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps a future trade. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It allows them to use our FabLabs to develop a project from A to Z and show everything they are capable of doing today. This year, it is all about using digital technology to devise and produce creations for the worlds of fashion, design and the arts.
