Detailed Description

Update

Instructables is a site developed by Squid Labs, a lab whose focus is on technical innovation and whose founders were once part of the MIT Media Lab. Instructables provides a forum for personal creativity, as it allows users to post instructions to describe how they created something. The concept of Instructables has been in the works for over five years, and has evolved from a platform initally called iFabricate that was developed in late 2004.
