FabCafe Shibuya

DIY Cafe in Shibuya in Tokyo

FabCafe

PRESENTED ON JUN 27, 2012
IN TOKYO @ VOL 93

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 by Toshimasa Kawai will reveal some of the amazing things that you can produce on a visit. Hint: It involves a laser cutter.

"Presentation of the Day" on July 19, 2013.
