We formed in the Fall of 2010, at the Burlington 2600 meeting. Our physical space is now located at 12 North St in Burlington Vt, just a short walk from downtown.
Laboratory B members are interested in a wide variety of technologies and related issues. Project range from anti-surveillance fashion to cloud infrastructure to textiles and transport technologies.
We are looking to grow our awesomeness by hosting more events and building our infrastructure. Please see the events page to see what have going on. The best way to get involved is to show up to a Thursday open hours between 7 and 9pm. There are usually folks hanging around chatting, helping each other with projects or working on personal projects.
