I wanted to share some information about Fab Lab DC.
Fab Lab DC
Give ordinary people the right tools, and they will
design and build the most extraordinary things.
That’s the idea behind Fab Labs, which originated
at MIT by Professor Neil Gershenfeld, who teaches,
How To Make (almost) Anything.
Fab Labs provide access to prototype tools for personal
fabrication, like a personal computer that can output
functional objects instead of images on a screen.
The labs have spread from inner-city Boston to Africa
and Norway, with projects tackling applications in
areas including healthcare, agriculture, housing,
FAB LAB is coming soon to DC

I took a tour of their Mobile Fab Lab and got to hear a bit about it and their plans and see some of their equipment.
I was told that their DC location would be on North Capitol, between Florida and New York.
