Fab Lab

Invention kits to build anything -

A laser cutter, computer controlled router, minature drilling mill, powered by open source software and micro-controllers, makes up the Fab(rication) Lab(oratory). These kits can make almost anything and have the potential to even reproduce themselves by making parts. The goal is a 'Star Trek' style replicator where the labs can create 3D photocopies of just about anything.
