The Maker’s Manual

The 2015 update to PSFK’s ‘Maker’s Manual’ spotlights the do-it-yourself Maker Movement and how new computing technologies are helping democratize the creation of things once limited to craftsmen and professionals. This report from PSFK and Intel provides every creator with a wealth of tools, support and services to bring their idea to life.

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.

Summary Presentation

The report, underwritten by Intel, also looks at Growth Systems and explores how a new set of services are allowing the Maker community to take their projects from personal passions to full-fledged product lines by providing flexible and cost-effective access to financial capital, copyright management tools and manufacturing facilities. Within these themes, we take an in-depth look at ten key trends, bringing them to life with best-in-class examples, constructing unique user experience paths for readers to navigate them based on their level of involvement in the Maker Movement. As you click through the following pages, we hope you find inspiration and innovation that you can leverage and share.
