Bythella V. Johnson lost so much — about $3,000 — on slot machines during a recent trip to Atlantic City with her husband, Gary, to celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary that he threatened to cut the trip short if she didn't ease up. The slots are closer than ever now for Johnson, who has pursued the big hit from Las Vegas to Maryland Live, even on the mock slots at Bingo World in Glen Burnie. You'd figure she'd be thrilled about Horseshoe Casino Baltimore and its 2,500 machines opening even closer to her Pikesville home, but she says she's not. "I don't care if they open up," said Johnson, who has won a few jackpots in her time.

The objects displayed on a shelf in the depths of UAV Solutions' headquarters in Jessup might look like toys, out of context. To the untrained eye, the plastic doodads - some thick, some thin, some glossy, others matte, and in a variety of subdued colors, like black, brown, tan and white - could be sandcastle molds, toy submarines - maybe DEVO hats in conservative hues. The reality is much more practical: They're parts of engines, circuit boards, radios. And each was printed by one of the company's 3D printers.
