While promoting cycling culture RogLab supported the development of two prototypes – the Bicycle lamp and the multi-purpose Ecocycle bag; research of modernistic architecture resulted in didactic architectural puzzles; thinking about sustainable development led to a modular garden box; questioning the accessibility of production tools led to the creation of an affordable motorised camera; the robotic conic partner and the drawing robot for children emerged from a combination of creativity and technology; supporting young creative minds encouraged the development of the electronic gadget; testing the advantages and limitations of contemporary technologies and materials for producing museum souvenirs led to an innovative cross between embroidery and the common everyday postcard. Over the past year RogLab also dealt with cultural and spatial policies and practices, which inspired a social game that eases the decision making process in cultural management. The active interest in urban culture can be "held responsible" for the folding quarterpipe, with which you can practice urban sports even in rural settings.

The exhibition was supported by the 
Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia and the City Municipality of Ljubljana.
