Turn Instructables into a restaurant. FOOD, FURNITURE, LIGHTS, DECORATION, all designed by members of Instructables. It's all there.
Why not turn all this wonderful information on Instructables into a real restaurant. There is a wide choice of food and furniture. And you can have your guests comment on it through instructables.com.
Do you want a big or small thing? A real business or just a cool dinner party? The restaurant can take all shapes and sizes because the info on Instructable.com is pretty limitless. Use it! In this ible we add some ideas for graphic design, production logistics, how to deal with food preparation and how to give everybody credit for what they bring in.
This instructable is the result of an Instructables Restaurant pilot, a collaboration between Arne Hendriks and Bas van Abel, Fablab Amsterdam, Waag Society, and several Instructables members.
Step 1: Ideas behind the idea
Here is some of the ideas behind the Instructables Restaurant.
1. The Instructables Restaurant comes with full instructions for everything. In most restaurants you get to buy and enjoy the food, and sometimes even the furniture. But in the Instructables Restaurant you go home knowing how to make the food as well as the furniture. We give you the instructions and recipes!
2. The Internet is full of passive information, and more is added every second. By really using and implementing this information not only do you plug into a world of know-how but it's also great for the people who have shared their knowledge. That's why crediting them is important!
3. The Instructables Restaurant originates from the input of others. This creates a different notion of ownership and the intellectual property of a regular business. A lot of the input comes from others. This is what we like about the idea.
4.The Instructables Restaurant creates a space between limitless information and reality. It's a 2.0 dock station where digital and real connect and communicate.
But enough of that. Let's build a restaurant!
