Mobile IKEA Lab with straps

Early version of dusjagr's MobileLab in RackoBox

Andrew Quitmayer's BackBack MobileHackerSpace

See examples from Andrew:

From previous experience, this is the minimum-basic requirement for any mobile lab:

1. Easy to carry. Handles, straps for back-packing, must be solid and tested for outdoor conditions. (for HLab Yogya think of rainy season, water proof design and motor cycle readiness)

2. Electrical power. Be sure to carry a rechargeable battery with you to power all your fancy gears. Best ist USB connector (mobile phone charing, powering arduino etc.) and ev. 12 VDC out. Advanced option some means to check battery status, fast recharge. You can get so called "power banks" that do the trick...

3. Any kind of lightning system - LED strips proved to be very versatile. Torch or head light.

4. Music toy. Put 30% of art in all you do. Not a joke. You need some kind of jamming device for the long nights around the lab fire. If you don't join in with you instrument, synthesizer, noisemaker what ever, you will not endure the noise sessions and miss the fun.

Earlier sessions on Mobile Labs

During the last years we have investigated various approaches on building and using various MobileLabs, MobileKitchenLabs in a hacked Angkringan, in Yogyakarta and Boxology. We explored it's uses at various festivals and conferences such as MutaMorphosis:Nomadic_Science_Lab#Nomadic_Furniture or Lab-in-a-Van for Ars Electronica's Create Your World Festival. MobileLabs Hackathon at BioTehna Lab II, Ljubljana with artists and hackers to focus more in depth on concepts and field testing, see the impressions And see Doms Mobile vj lab.
