I make 4 my city : An online kit to create a sports area


An online kit to create a sports area

FabLab Simplon - Paris  

Not everyone has access to sports equipment: an online kit to manufacture whatever is needed to play a sport in any FabLab worldwide.

Who & what?
This kit was designed by 9 young people aged 15 and 16 from the 20th arrondissement in Paris who had never previously used the FabLab, supported by a prevention organisation and supervised by the Solidarity FabLab team.

To help those who do not have access to sport infrastructures to manufacture the necessary equipment. It also allows anyone, anywhere to create what they need to play a sport easily and cheaply for less than €30.

Once downloaded, the kit allows them to manufacture the sports area when needed, using equipment available at all FabLabs worldwide: a 3D printed basketball hoop to attach to a tree, pitch markers made of vinyl cut-outs, a laser cut football goal made of recycled cardboard, sports shirts, etc.
