In computer language it is someone who studies the workings of a system in order to find faults and then divert or distort it's original function. Some do this for good,and others for bad. Fab Lab (PG) Does grandpa have a fab lab in his garage? No, but there may be some rusty old tools or an old pair of wooden skis. But not so in a Fabrication Laboratory. You supply the ideas, then turn up to use the computer assisted tools to create your own objects. Imagine the fabulous objects you can make in your local fab lab!
