||Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Fab Lab
||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). Fab labs have spread from inner-city Boston to rural India, from South Africa to the North of Norway. Activities in fab labs range from technological empowerment to peer-to-peer project-based technical training to local problem-solving to small-scale high-tech business incubation to grassroots research. Projects being developed and produced in fab labs include solar and wind-powered turbines, thin-client computers and wireless data networks, and much more.
