What is the "Fab Lab"

Technology (“science of craft”, from Greek τέχνη, techne, “art, skill, cunning of hand”; and -λογία, -logia) is the collection of techniques, skills, methods and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation.

Laboratory, broadly defined, is a place providing opportunity for experimentation, observation, or practice in a field of study.
