Prolonging life-time of our products.

Life cycles of our products are getting shorter and shorter, we are constantly buying new things, producing more and more waste. What we forgot in recent years is that things could be repaired, remade, redesigned and we do not need to buy more stuff.

RE-BEAT provides virtual and physical infrastructure for people to share ideas, knowledge and tools. It enables people to reshape, refresh, redesign, remakeā€¦ existing products. Prolonging life-time of our products, adding heartbeats is what we do. is a web portal that enables people to share:
heart beats
brain beats
hand beats.

In heart beat section you can explore different kind of products - used or remade ones. Here you can give, take, buy or sell products.

In hand beat section you can organize your own project by virtually walking through rebuilding space, seeing what materials and tools are available there and what are the dates available for you to use the space.

In brain beat section you have access to all knowledge about remaking the community is willing to share through tutorials etc.

RE-BUILDING is a building where workshops happen in real space&time enabling people to cowork on redesigning old products.
