Maker Mania in Oslo, Norway

Ideas are flying high at Bitraf in central Oslo as the members discuss their participation at Maker Fair in Oslo in January 2014 (see separate story).

itraf and the members will have a strong presence, with many members showcasing their work and ideas at their own stands, as well as a shared Bitraf space.

A pancake printer or chocolate-cutting milling machine are probably a bit far out, but the brainstorming among members is a good demonstration of their creativity in ways to attract people to their stand and further their community.

Bitraf is one of many collective office spaces and makers labs popping up in Oslo these days, equipped with a number of tools, machines and materials, and open to all members. “What we are witnessing with the maker spaces and access to advanced production equipment like 3D printers, CNC milling machines and scanners are the first signs of a larger emerging trend. This is the start of an era in which one does not have to travel to low-cost production countries at the other end of the world in order to get prototypes and specialised products,” says Fredrik Winther, Managing Director at Oslo Teknopol.
