Shibuya, Tokyo is now home to Fab Café, a coffee house with a public use laser cutter. Just walk in with a vector design and your material and enjoy a cup of coffee while the laser does its thing. According to Spoon & Tamago, the café opened on March 7th and is operated by Loftwork, a local digital media production company. [via NOTCOT]
