Gershenfeld, who runs MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms, foresees a time when computers will upgrade from PCs to PFs, or personal fabricators. This eye-opening survey of "fab labs" completes the progression in Gershenfeld's earlier studies of the overlapping of computer science and physical science, such as When Things Start to Think (1999).

In FAB, Gershenfeld describes how personal fabrication is possible today, and how it is meeting local needs with locally developed solutions. He and his colleagues have created fab labs around the world, which, in his words, can be interpreted to mean a lab for fabrication, or simply a fabulous laboratory. Using the machines in one of these labs, children in inner-city Boston have made saleable jewelry from scrap material. Villagers in India used their lab to develop devices for monitoring food safety and agricultural engine efficiency.

According to Neil Gershenfeld, the renowned MIT scientist and inventor, the next big thing is personal .

Personal fabricators are about to revolutionize the world just as personal computers did a generation ago, and Fab shows us how.

What if you could someday put the manufacturing power of an automobile plant on your desktop? According to Neil Gershenfeld, the renowned MIT scientist and inventor, the next big thing is personal fabrication-the ability to design and produce your own products, in your own home, with a machine that combines consumer electronics and industrial tools. Personal fabricators are about to revolutionize the world just as personal computers did a generation ago, and Fab shows us how.

Following along on the latest "Maker" phenomenon this book gives a very upbeat blueprint for the future. Upbeat unless you are a large scale manufacturer.
This book describes a project out of MIT to put the means of custom manufacture in the hands of everyone. And I do mean everyone. They have taken their scheme to the African continent, the most remote parts of India and the urban centers of the US.
The premise is that small scale, custom manufacturing of any level of technology serves best when put into the hands of those who will us that technology.
Perhaps the most refreshing fact revealed by this book is that the process was two way. The people from MIT learned as much about the process as those they were trying to help. The human spirit is really quite remarkable when given the opportunity to be expressed.

The author is more concerned with the things that people around the world can do with 3D printers and similar technology than he is with how the technology works. From villages in India and Africa to American inner cities, to university campuses he shows how these devices are being put to uses, both technical ("printing" artificial organs) and idiosyncratic (printing a plastic bicycle).

The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to the possibilities of modern do-it-yourself fabrication technology and show where it might lead.

The day is soon coming when we can all have custom-made anything. We will either be able to buy it for less than what we now pay for cookie-cutter products, or we'll be able to make it ourselves.

3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machines, it's all here. And, the technology has only grown since this book came out.

This is an excellent book for several reasons the most important is the one word insight. Neil Gershenfeld understands the human mind and how education is enhanced by doing things that one may not understand but by doing them it is necessary to study details to figure out why something won’t work and to determine what will make it work.

Item is in fact a book!
It's non fiction so this is what it is.

Neil Gershenfeld rocks. its simple as that. the book has a strange kind of structure filled up with anecdotes of uses and impacts of the fabrication technology. it gives hope for a bright "future of the future" and should be standart literature in many different contexts. for living in germany, i hope that there will be some translations soon because "FAB" is written in a way even technophobes will be able to read and to understand the impact of fab-labs and hardware-culture, but these people are mostly of a generation that does not read english.
for the younger generations (1970+) this book is one way or the other: a must-read

Gogul
This book gives valuable insight into what people will use personal fabricators for, and I believe that widespread adoption is within 10 years.

The book, Fab, is just that, fabulous. The author, Neil Gershenfeld, an MIT professor, explains the principles of desktop fabucation in a clear, easy to undersand manner using many examples from all over the world. Truly a must read about the future of desktop computing.
