While at Maker Faire last weekend, we met so many great people. However, today we’re focusing on two great members of the DIY community that were kind enough to share some thoughts on the past, present, and future of the DIY movement. First, we talk to Jim Newton of TechShop, a membership-based DIY workshop that provides unique tools and equipment that members may not have access to use on their own. Next, you can see our first encounter with Lindsay Lawlor and Russell The Electric Giraffe, a huge robot giraffe that makers of all ages can pet and interact with. We had such a great time at Maker Faire, we can’t wait for the next one!
As you can see, Maker Faire is definitely a hands-on event where you are encouraged to touch and feel the different creative projects. Where do you think the DIY community is headed? Leave us a comment below.
