I make 4 my city : Faboccia

 

Project
Faboccia

FabLab 127° Cap Sciences - Bordeaux  

A boccia ramp was created at the Bordeaux FabLab to make this strategic sport a parasport. Faboccia is adapted to all bowls sports and all disabilities.

Who & what?
5 young high school students took up this project and developed it whilst learning about digital manufacturing and in particular, laser cutting and 3D printing, focusing on the principles of Open Source & Open Hardware which are shared by all Solidarity FabLabs.

Why?
Allowing everyone to easily create a boccia ramp to play sports, which is possible as it can be adapted and personalised to allow disabled people to take part.

How?
Beyond digital manufacturing, laser cutting and 3D printing, new work has been carried out at the FabLab to promote Faboccia: creating a visual identity, packaging and communication & promotional media for introductory sport events such as goodies and key rings.
