Today we are proud to release our Weekly Staff Picks!
For the most part, creating unusual objects and more practical stuff are two completely separate interests, but at NextFab Studio, they manage to coexist. 

Whether it be engineering marvels or random creative inspirations; we simply can’t get enough of the stuff.  In appreciation of our varied interests, we have decided to share our favorite items with the rest of the world… Hopefully they will catch your eye too!

And Here are Our Picks for this Week:

Learn to Code! - Learn to code by following prompts in a command line interface. After each lesson, you earn a badge representing the skill you’ve learned. - Alex

LavaAmp - Interesting project looking to make PCR (polymerase chain reaction) cheaper/affordable currently costs many thousands developing a machine that fits in the hand, only costs a few hundred to one thousand dollars. - Alex - Deku tree of life - Just for fun: Philadelphia based artist currently in an 8bit art show in LA. - Rachel

Engineering Videos - Engineering is actually really cool but we get a bad rap. This site shows off just some of the really cool things you can do with SCIENCE!  - Ross

Augmented Reality in a Contact Lens - Robotic prosthetic and augmented reality is no longer limited to video games and Hollywood movies.  This amazing technology is now being used to save and improve the lives of real people. - Brandon

DIY Essentials - I got it from MAKE: Magazine who got it from the IEEE Spectrum which is member magazine of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. I like it because it it very straight forward and informative. It is aimed directly at beginners. - Gregg
