Starlab NV/SA was a privately funded, blue sky research center based in Brussels, Belgium. At the time of its closing on June 12, 2001, Starlab employed over 100 scientists from more than 30 nationalities, many of them leaders in their respective fields. Research areas included intelligent clothing, stem cell research, emotics, transarchitecture, robotics, theoretical physics (e.g., the possibility of time travel), consciousness, quantum computation, art, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, new media, biophysics, materials science, protein folding, nanoelectronics, and wearable computing - to mention a few. Starlab's research mandates included Deep Future and " -- a place where one hundred years means nothing." Its open and cross-disciplinary nature was an innovative effort to foster creativity among scientific researchers, intended as an original, if ambitious, dream to create a utopian scientific environment.
