The Maker’s Manual
The Maker’s Manual explores how everyone from do-it-yourselfers and artists to inventors and entrepreneurs are leveraging new tools, platforms and services to take their ideas from concepts to reality.
In our Democratized Creation theme we explore how the hardware and tools required to start building DIY technology projects are becoming more widely available, cost-effective and user friendly, encouraging a greater number of people to become involved in the Maker Movement regardless of their knowledge and level of skill. With the Community Exchange theme we look at how a growing number of digital platforms and physical spaces are helping to cultivate the Maker Movement by bringing people together to share essential knowledge and resources, while simultaneously creating new marketplaces for buying and selling their products.
