our mission

To make innovation and craftmanship accessible to all

We envision a higher level of cooperation, sharing and ownership among researchers and makers. Our goal is to render laboratories and workshops self managing.
To this end, we created a badge system that connects to any machine and a software platform controlling user access and enabling safe sharing.

This is some text inside of a div block.

Our story

The platform was developed in 2018 in collaboration with Fablab Brussels. They stepped into this development because they wanted to manage a rather large lab with a limited staff. So the following things were important to them:
  • Guaranteeing safety, despite the rather limited staffing levels
  • Encouraging care for the machines
  • Digitising administrative tasks
  • Generation of data to optimise operations

Since the summer of 2020, the platform is available for improving operations in manufacturing labs. End of 2019, VIB (Flanders institute for Biotechnology) has requested implementation and further development of the platform for use in its research facilities. With dedicated features such as feedback and machine checklists, they have improved their machine uptime and further improved their safety levels
