The Ion Prototyping Lab is where your ideas meet the designers, engineers, and fabricators that can make it a reality. Located at The Ion, the intersection of Houston’s culture, creativity, and innovation. Our 6500 sq. ft. site offers access to equipment, engineers, and technical training–a must for every inventor, innovator, and creator.
