Japanese Cafe Lets You Create Objects From Scratch [PechaKucha]

The international design hub shares a presentation about a Fabcafe that lets you make your own items–laser cutter included.

Presentations
With a name like FabCafe — and with a location in Tokyo’s Shibuya district — you may think that the “Fab” stands for “fabulous,” but instead it’s short for “fabricate.” This presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93) by Toshimasa Kawai will reveal some of the amazing things that you can produce on a visit. Hint: It involves a laser cutter.

This presentation (in German, from PKN Regensburg Vol. 2) by Johannes Paffrath could also be called: “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Aperture But Were Afraid to Ask.”

Posters
There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight this poster for next Tuesday’s (July 24) PKN Halifax Vol. 11 — you’ll find more details and the list of presenters with links on the official event page.

Links
We have a couple of links to share today, that act as event reports for PKN Bangkok‘s recent relaunch (pictured above) and PKN Dubai Vol. 11.

Calendar
Here’s what you can expect in terms of weekend action. First, tonight (Friday, July 20), there’s Tijuana‘s very first PKN, as well as PKN Waterville Vol. 8. On Saturday night, Taos hosts its Vol. 7. And if you’d like to plan the week ahead, on Monday you can expect PKN Fresno Vol. 16 and PKN San Jose Vol. 7.
