Frosinone cradle of ingenuity
Does strength lie in unity? It would seem so, especially looking at the experience of the Fab Lab Frosinone Officine Giardino. Architects, designers, engineers, programmers, all 'Made in Ciociaria' with international experiences behind them, decided to set up the Fab Lab network of creative workshops for mutual support using their own means and knowledge. The goal is to bring to life innovative, technological projects with a constant eye on sustainability.
Against Violence to Women
Many new projects in the pipeline. For instance, Women Sting, a wearable device, designed to cope with violence against women. This is a ring, easy to activate since it is always “at hand” even in situations of panic and terror. Its plus point is that it causes momentary, non-permanent damage to an aggressor, blocking the attack.
Robots and Sensors
ROLL-E, instead, is a robotized tele-presence system that is particularly attractive to look at. It features a 3D camera, can be remote controlled, and is designed for work use, teaching, but also games. The prototype is in laminated corrugated board and is very sturdy thanks to recessed joints.
Monitoring of water and atmospheric pollution
Smart IDEA, instead, was born as a hardware-software platform to monitor pollution in the air and water as well as environmental parameters in the Sacco Valley, thanks to a network of electronic boards equipped with different sensors, installed along the course of the river and linked via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or GSM. The web platform collects and processes all the data, offering an overview of the environmental situation. However, the choice of sensors is flexible and as a result, all the aspects of interest can be monitored.
In any case, to stay up to date on this Fab Lab's projects and initiatives it's sufficient to consult the blog with the calendar of all the scheduled events.
