Wikifactory is designed for open source communities, designers and product companies, it’s a social platform for collaborative product development, and it offers tools for teams and communities to share and work together on projects through the web.
Fablabs.io is the online social network of the international Fab Lab community. It is the current official list of Fab Labs that share the same principles, tools, and philosophy around the future of technology and its role in society. Fablabs.io is an exchange platform for people, labs, projects, machines, events and groups that operate around the Fab Lab Network.
Fablabs.io plans to officially launch the update at Fab15 – The official conference for Fab Labs, but opens the site beforehand to your great projects to promote this improved section of the fablabs.io platform. You can sign in to projects.fablabs.io using your original fablabs.io account! If you need help, you can use this helpful guide.
The collaboration enables the Fab Lab community to use the Wikifactory tools and in return introduces Wikifactory to the Fab Lab pool of makers, designers, creatives, coders etc. This collaboration is a great step forward forming an ecosystem of ecosystem of digital platforms that support creatives and connect them with new, digital markets.
We look forward to seeing your ideas on the platform!
