Fab Lab Baltimore Fab Lab Baltimore building a guitar

Fab Lab Baltimore is part of the International Fab Lab Network, an outreach project through MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms. We provide public access to digital design and fabrication technologies. Fab Labs can be used to design and create anything from electronics and small scale working prototypes, to architectural components, and almost everything in between.


AMRAD is the Amateur Radio Research and Development Corporation, a non-profit corporation. For over 30 years they have been on the cutting edge of amateur radio technologies, including the packet radio AX25 industry standard, the AO-27 small satellite and work on low frequency radio communications. Our current efforts include the Charleston radio and the capacity to design and built it using surface mount technology. Stop by and see the receiver design and what it takes to build this design. In addition, we have uncovered a number of UHF transceiver modules that can be used to remotely control systems using amateur radio or license free radio channels.

DC Robotics Group DC Robotics Group

Come join a growing group of engineers, hackers, researchers, artists, and entrepreneurs with a passion for robotics and robot technologies. Modeled on similar groups in Silicon Valley and Pittsburgh, we're aiming to kick-start a community for robotics and robotics/hardware startups in the D.C. metro area. Whether you're looking to build your first robot or you're a veteran roboticist seeking collaborators, come share your knowledge, learn from others, and network.

Blinkinlabs Blinkinlabs

Blinky Tape is a very special LED strip. It has what we like to call an integrated light processor-- that means you don't have to source your own microcontroller, power supply or connectors. Instead, you simply need to plug in to a wall charger or the included USB battery pack, and you're good to blink.

BlinkyTape has 60 independently controllable full-color RGB LEDs, all wrapped up in a weather-resistant silicone case. All this is powered by that integrated light processor which has a standard micro-USB connector. This means you can connect it to the battery or another power supply to run on its own, or it can talk to a computer for interactive installations. When you first plug in your BlinkyTape, you'll be greeted by a colorful rainbow pattern. But the fun doesn't stop there: the BlinkyTape comes with a full set of companion software to make it easy for you to make the patterns and effects you want. You can graphically draw patterns and animations the LED strip using PatternPaint.

RepRap RepRap

RepRap is humanity's first general-purpose self-replicating manufacturing machine. RepRap takes the form of a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap prints those parts, RepRap self-replicates by making a kit of itself - a kit that anyone can assemble given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend.

We will be showing the latest in RepRap technology, including a working MakerBot- come see how DIY 3D printing works for yourself. RepRap is a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap can print those parts, RepRap can be considered a self-replicating machine - one that anyone can build given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend.
