Welcome to the Dreamlab, a place where we turn our ideals and dreams into reality. Ideas may come and go, but it’s the projects: the physical manifestation of our concepts, that will live on amongst the minds of many. The Dreamlab is essentially a makerspace, a place that is reserved for creative explorations, engineering, tinkering, inventing, etc. basically a place for crazy experimentation and development.
Here at the Dreamlab, we build everything from the ground up. We put into design the systems we have in our minds, and head on to make a first prototype! A common misconception is the notion that you need to be well funded or have a very fancy lab to start with robotics or any prototyping work. Most of the projects here are assembled with equipment from the lab, except for a few large manufacturing items. You’ll see it when you arrive, all it takes to build something great is your own creativity and determination to see your project through.
A space is made to be a space by the people who inhabit it. Likewise the Dreamlab is defined by the people in it and the projects they are working towards. It is this diversity of people that contribute to the creative spirit of making, whereby these serendipitous late night discussions become the catalyst of new concepts and solutions to existing problems that plagued us. Everyone here is a part of a larger community of creators, working together towards pushing the boundaries of science and technology.
I hope you enjoy your visit. Fair warning, make sure to bring only an open mind, and a truckload of questions to satisfy your curiosity.

Timothy's interest lies in the intersection between the arts and sciences. He believes creativity and innovation come by working through with challenging and complex problems, which requires the ability to quickly cycle through different perspectives and approaches to the problems.
