Fab labs provide widespread access to modern means for invention. They
began as an outreach project from MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms
(CBA). Projects being developed and produced in fab labs include solar
and wind-powered turbines, thin-client computers and wireless data
networks, analytical instrumentation for agriculture and healthcare,
custom housing, and rapid-prototyping of rapid-prototyping machines.
