We passed through Tulsa Oklahoma the first day we were traveling, but it was very early in the morning, so we skipped the Fablab. On the way home though, the timing was perfect for a quick visit. [Blixa] was happy to show me around and explain how the fablab works.
I’ve never been to a fablab before, so I was very curious what it would be like. Fablabs are slightly different than your standard hackerspace, having a set structure that they must adhere to, to be considered a fablab, sort of like a franchise. Instead of paying to become a member, you pay for time on the machines. From what I saw at the fablab in Tulsa, this model seems to be working well. They had very nice equipment that appeared to be in constant use by the visitors.
