iceaddis in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia was the first prototype for the coming iterations of icehubs in other countries.
Product designers prototyping new adapted mobility solutions for the rough streets of Addis Abeba.
icehubs are physical meeting places, galvanising the young generation of innovators in local communities.
In icecairo, a locally adapted solar water heater system made of locally available components was prototyped and further developed by the Egyptian greentech community under an open source hardware license.
icehubs enable networking and sharing of ideas through community spaces and participatory event formats.
Prototyping is essential to the development of new technologies and services that make sense in the local environment.
icealex in Alexandria, Egypt, was the latest, yet possibly most active addition to the icehubs network.
icehubs enable interdisciplinary collaborative work bringing together traditional craftmanship with state-of-the-art digital technologies.
Access to a FabLab for hands-on rapid prototyping is an important resource for icehubs community members when developing and testing new tech solutions.
