Win a Photonics Toolkit!

December 18 2018

To celebrate this season of joy with you, B-Photonics will surprise 10 Fab Labs and 10 schools across Europe with a most interesting and obviously cool Photonics Workshop Toolkit of Phablabs 4.0. 

PHABLABS 4.0 on the radio

December 11 2018

Our French partners, @saintetienne will talk about the Photonics Challenger projects in France in an interview between 12h and 13h.

Interested in the world of design and new technologies? Having an idea to create an innovative product in the context of music, design or fashion using light technology?

Are you looking for even more Photonics Challenges? Apply for the "#next_photonics. Prototype Your Idea Contest" And transform your idea for a photonics product into a real business.

From this year on May 16th, the anniversary of the first successful operation of the laser in 1960 by physicist and engineer, Theodore Maiman, is the 'International Day of Light'. PHABLABS 4.0 had the opportunity to show all our fantastic Photonics Workshops at the inauguration of the Day of Light at UNESCO in Paris.

The bootcamp is all about photonics, a driving technology for many industries in the 21st century. Bridging physics with engineering. Advanced and sometimes futuristic, yet unknown to many. Have a look at this intensive day where VUB B-PHOT experts unleash the super power of photonics to students in Engineering and Physics. PHABLABS 4.0 was present to learn the students how to make a smartphone controlled RGB LED lamp

The PHABLABS 4.0 test workshops started in Vilnius. FTMC and M-Lab organised a workshop for young minds where they could make their own Kaleidoscope.

Young professionals tested the Workshop “Persistence of vision” at Fablab Karlsruhe. In this workshop LEDs are used to write a text or images on a phosphorescent surface. What we need to make the text visible is a rotating drum, coated with a phosphorescent film and illuminated from the inside with light using LEDs.

MEET & GREET with PHABLABS 4.0 at MakerFaire Rome -The Eu Edition: 4.0. You can find us from 1>3 December at Pavillion 6, F10. We will showcase several developed Photonics Workshops&Challengers. Hope to meet you there!
