NExT Lab: a mirrored cube with LED lighting display

Melbourne School of Design is home to a new maker space: the New Experimental Technology Lab (NExT Lab). This innovative addition to the school provides hands-on access to new disruptive technologies in design, along with support, training and education to help users integrate this tech into design projects.

NExT Lab offers 3D printing, virtual reality, augmented reality and 3D scanning services in a space that’s full of surprises. It centres around a mirrored cube that houses a 3D printing farm and doubles as a lighting installation.

Stop by the Lab, located in MSD’s Andrew Lee King Fun gallery, to learn about technologies that will impact the future of design.

The Lab is hosting regular information and training sessions, including introductions to 3D printing and virtual reality. Bookings may be required, visit the NExT Lab website for details.
