Research Lab Sites You Should Know About

By Doug Farrick

You don't have to be a mad scientist to hang out in the many online labs but you should understand the power of labs to forsee new and emerging innovations, explore new ideas, share new technologies and generally expand your thinking horizons in visual design. I'll show you my favorites.

These are a great resource to bookmark. You'll be surprised at all the interesting experiments brewing at these sites. I'm sure you'll find some ways to integrate their ideas into your own design business.
