” Home to a Makerbot 3D printer, which was – at the moment – creating a finger ring that presumably grants the wearer some kind of superpower. Next to that was a subtractive fabrication machine that the Fab Labers use to create their own circuit boards – a vinyl cutter that allows them to create everything from stickers for laptops to designs for t-shirts with a rocket-propelled unicorn on them. Among the other toys is a big orange box that had a few folks busily working, opening and closing a small door. When the door was open for a minute, you could see a bright light emanating forth. While my guide explained to me the finer design points of the laser cutter, I kind of tuned him out, overexcited by the prospect of playing with lasers. They wouldn’t let me, though. “
