The City of Providence has entered into a partnership with AS220, the nonprofit art, design and innovation organization, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to create a public technology workshop. The AS220 Labs will make Providence one of 20 sites worldwide to host a fabrication laboratory developed by MIT. The so-called Fab Labs provide training and public access to technology and equipment that allow anyone to design products and inventions on a computer. Projects already being developed and produced in Fab Labs include solar and wind-powered turbines, wireless data networks, and custom housing.
I'm thinking about laser cutting some 19th century base ball covers.
