Features and Overview
The Hateno Ancient Tech Lab is located on a hill just north of Hateno Village. It appears to be similar in design and material to the houses and Silos of Hateno Village, but has Sheikah inhabitants instead of Hylian. There is a large Telescope attached to the body of the building. It is the main objective for the Main Quest "Locked Mementos"
When Link first encounters the Lab, it will appear on his Sheikah Slate, but will not be available as a Warping point. Once Link enters the Lab, he is greeted by Purah. She instructs him to obtain a Blue Flame to power up the Lab's Furnace. Once Link returns with the Blue Flame, the Lab is made functional once again and becomes a Warping point. The Lab's Guidance Stone also regains its functionality, allowing Link to restore the Camera Rune and Hyrule Compendium to the Sheikah Slate.
After speaking to Purah about Robbie, Link may trade in certain Ancient Materials to her in exchange for upgraded Runes. Three Ancient Screws gets him the Sheikah Sensor +, three Ancient Shafts gets him Remote Bombs +, and three Ancient Cores can get him Stasis +. After purchasing the Sheikah Sensor + ability and completing the Side Quest "Sunshroom Sensing, Link may buy pictures in the Hyrule Compendium from Symin.
