Introduction[edit | edit source]

Permanent Future Lab (PFLab) shares and facilitates accessibility to technology at publicly accessible locations. Anyone (such as animals, people and extraterrestrial life forms) of our society is welcome to (digitally) visit, discover and tinker with the available technology, without any monetary obligations! The only prerequisite as a visitor is to share experiences and other findings with others, resonating the entire eco-system PFLab thrives in: the sharing economy.

In The Hague, the Museum of Communication facilitated a location for Permanent Future Lab from July 2015 until February 2016. From February 29th MusCom is closed due to a transformation process.

Until there is a fixed location, the tech shared with PFLab The Hague will be available for meetups and events. Tech will also be shared with other PFLab-locations, such as Strijp-S and Apeldoorn.

The next meetup where PFLab tech is shared in The Hague, is:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There's a space ship on this location! This space ship was used in the MusCom's expo 'Rijk van Heen en Weer', until March 2015. Since this space ship looks like the logo of Permanent Future Lab MusCom asked if the Permanent Future Lab Utrecht wanted to have the space ship. Unfortunately the ship is too high to fit in most rooms, and because MusCom later on decided to have it's own Permanent Future Lab the space ship is staying at MusCom.
