For HackteriaLab 2014 with it's four different nodes, "water", "forest", "volcano" and "hardware" and with different locations it is going to be an intensive main phase. The participants, all experienced open-, citizen-scientists and tinkerers a mobile lab to work in the field is a mandatory prerequisite.

This page provides insights to the different mobile lab concepts and supports exchange and inspiration during the preparation phase.

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. It is time now to focus more in depth about these concepts and we are inviting artists and hackers to come and join us for a 1 week MobileLabs Hackathon in our new facilities of the BioTehna Lab II, Ljubljana.
