Yesteday I managed to squeeze 4 visits into one Day. I started in Silver Spring at the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, which is not really a Fab lab related place but has very nice Art Studios, a gallery and a great print shop.
As I had many meetings scheduled I didn’t even try to work on my Wind Turbine but I had a very good Interview with the Lab Manager.
…and on I went to Downtown Baltimore to see MICA’s prototyping workshop. (Maryland Institute College of Art)
A very heavy shower of rain gave me the opportunity to get to speak to the guys who drive it for a few minutes (it was very busy when there was no rain and the truck is rather small.)
They managed to squeeze in an almost complete Lab including two Makerbots and a Laser cutter.
Check out their Map and compare it to my Itinerary! almost the same Route reversed and one of us is traveling without a Fab Lab in the trunk
Tomorrow I’ll Drive to Lorain, Ohio. I am very excited because the have a wind turbine Lab next to the Fab Lab(!)
