As is keenly obvious Laboratory B is center of cutting edge fashion (j/k). Seriously though,  we do spend a fair amount of time thinking about high tech fashion either in the wearable way or in a materials way. We are pretty excited by the rise of techninja fashion, which I quipped in just" a monochromatic Vermonter just back from  hike!"

Though the pricing is outrageous (isn't it always in the fashion world) it present some interesting looks (straight out of a William Gibson novel!)

Bitcoinage Discussion!

Posted by Jesse Krembs

Laboratory B hosted a bit of coin meetup last week and the local alt weekly (more like just awesome weekly) did a write up about it!

In Vermont, Users of "Cryptocurrency" Bitcoin Are Few But Committed

 Last week, in a small, subterranean workspace near downtown Burlington, a group of tech-savvy Vermonters held an open forum on a topic that’s attracted a great deal of attention lately: Bitcoin. Early adopters of the “cryptocurrency” believe it has the potential to upend the entire global economy.....
Also Laboratory B has some cool "I use bitcoin" t-shirts if you need one.

Designer Lighting!

Posted by Jesse Krembs

IMAG0333 This post is long overdue but better late then never! We'd seen Rebecca Schwarz's designer lights at the number of local maker and art events and we thought "Man those are super cool!" After talking with Rebecca a little we learned that they usually lived in her basement unseen and unloved. Well with a little cajoling we managed to convince her to hang them at the Lab! We maybe the only hackerspace with designer lighting! If you want to see the cool lights from recycled material come on down to the Lab! Rebecca can also do workshops on how to make similar lights at schools and such!
