SuperToolsAround is an online mapping platform dedicated to share manufacturing tools based on a location and need principle.
The idea is to facilitate the meeting between the means of production and those requiring these tools as a fabrication laboratory through your neighborhood.
As a collaborative device, the platform collects information like the type of tools available (electric / electronic) and the location of the sharer.
The structure is based on different scales, the one of the building (your neighbor is using a 3d printer and you don’t even know it), the one of the street, the neighborhood, the city.
Thanks to the collective approach, the manufacturing tools are more accessible especially when it’s for occasional use and creates new relationships between individuals.
