The 'maker movement' creates DIY revolution - Christian Science Monitor

The 'maker movement' creates DIY revolution - Christian Science Monitor | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A bank of Macs and PCs lines one wall where kids can research how to make things, learn to mix music with Garage Band, or build their own digital world with Minecraft. Windows behind the computers – a sort of bridge between the 20th and 21st centuries – offer a full view of a retired machinist’s woodworking shop. Bookshelves stuffed with remote-control cars, arts-and-crafts supplies, and beginning robotics kits flank a doorway leading to a bike shop. A pile of circuit boards and hard drives sits in a corner next to a disassembled electric wheelchair lying in wait for curious tinkerers.

Could 3D bioprinting help fight Ebola? | Inside3DP | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In the emerging DIY bio movement, the maker community is taking its DIY approach to biological experimentation and biotech. The idea is that you can apply the open-source hardware toolbox and philosophy to creating biotech tools and methods at a low cost and putting them in the hands of the wider public. The maker movement uses accessible tech to bring back the days when tinkerers like Philo Farnsworth were creating high-tech at home.

Where DIY Music Meets Tech Culture: Searching for Future Sounds at the World ... - Flavorwire | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
