== Permanent Future Lab | simply explained ==
Permanent Future Lab (PFLab) is a publicly accessible [[locations|location]] where the newest technology is being shared. Currently there are a few in the Netherlands and, one at Bali and Bangladesh. At those locations anyone can play, discover and exchange new ideas through available technology or by learning from other passersby. Available technology varies highly from robots, brainscanners, VR headsets to Internet of Thing devices and mini controllers. And the types of people you can meet vary from lab to lab and from time to time; from first-timers to real geeks.
Permanent Future Lab (PFLab) is initiated and facilitated by a social movement; a decentralized network of a diverse group of people supporting the sharing economy. The beauty of it is -and to the disbelieve of many- that money does not play a role. So, to be very clear: there is no business model! The labs embrace an alternative value exchange system, where [[sharing]] is key. PFLab thrives in an ecosystem free of money issues, strict hierarchical set of rules or any hassle from the old world. The PFLab sharing eco-system figure on the right explains how this works in detail.[[File:PFLab ecosystem.png|thumbnail]]
* Every physical PFLab is located within a place that is being shared by others.
* Technology available at a PFLAbPFLab is being shared by people and other parties, without any direct commercial interest.  
* At some PFLabs visitors are being welcomed by hosts, sharing their time, kindness and knowledge. Having a host is however an option and can be done by people or other forms.
* Experiences, new knowledge and innovations are being shared by hosts, visitors, ambassadors and fans.
# make new technology accessible for a broad(er) audience, and
# reduce the gap between the world of upcoming technology and society <br>
==== For a Better Society ====
The world is changing rapidly, mainly caused by upcoming new technology. Like most novel products, new technology does not necessarily match the needs of current society. Moreover, new technology can influence society on a different level and scale with disruptive consequences, especially if it is connected to the digital world as we know it today. The movement stimulates the society to think about these new developments by activities such as [[sharing]] knowledge online, exchanging ideas face to face and by organizing recurring meetups.
==== Your Impact? ====
