How The Maker Movement Is Revitalizing Industry In American Cities The maker movement is the platform for today’s artisans to create, craft, and develop leading ideas and products. The meteoric growth of micro-manufacturers and online platforms like Etsy demonstrates how strongly the movement has taken root. And it's in cities where makers are plying their trade. It is the urban arena that is the true fulcrum of innovation as the natural meeting place of people, place, and prosperity. This hyperlocal manufacturing environment holds potential not only for individual hobbyists (myself included)–-but for economic development efforts. Community wide advances in local entrepreneurship and job creation are growing due to the rise of maker spaces, both nationwide and globally.

This webpage is from Barcelona Mini Maker Faire in 2015 The 2015 Barcelona Mini Maker Faire enters its 3rd amazing year. This time around the Faire will be bigger, better and brighter than ever: a new team lead by Fab Lab Barcelona and Made Barcelona, more makers from Barcelona, Spain and all over the world, and a brand-new location right in the heart of Barcelona: Plaza de las Glories Would you like to be a part of the team that makes it happen? It,s a maker faire a harbinger. One of the most obvious changes at Maker Faire, held at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, in the last few years is how far 3D printing has come along—once an interesting novelty, making relatively coarse objects, now 3D printers control resolutions in the order of microns, with some even working at the nanoscale. Maker Faire features a wide range of exhibits, from lone inventors, engineers, and artists showing off their latest creations, to small businesses, to large corporations like Microsoft and Google. While robotics has long been a major part of the Faire, 3D printing now has its own section and a wide array of vendors. Particularly striking (at least to me), was the many there who were offering to show people how to build their own printers—not just how to make their own 3D objects. This brings it to a whole new level, where these devices can be made in one’s own home, and then produce countless varieties of objects that can also be made on one’s own.

Enabling Makers To Create “The Next Big Thing” Makers have long been known as hobbyists or tinkers. However, with increased access to professional-grade tools, the maker movement is transforming business as usual. Through collaboration and connectivity, makers are inspiring innovation on a daily basis with the creation of smart gadgets, machines, robots and wearables. This new way of doing business is a shift from the historic model where innovation was monopolized by multi-million-dollar companies. Makers and their peers have the opportunity to build cutting-edge products, test them in collaborative workspaces and share their inventions online in order to bring “the next big thing” to market for mass consumption. It is through this connectivity that makers are able to contribute to the Internet of Things — a world of interconnected devices that use sensors to interact with the people, the environment and other devices around them.

Oru Beach Kayak - Oru Kayak The Beach is, simply put, the best kayak I've ever owned. After just a couple times I've learned how to set it up in a few minutes–much faster than I would have expected. I can do this by myself easily, which opens up a whole new realm of morning and evening paddles by myself (previously I needed help moving large kayaks on & off the car and to the water. It's fast on the water because it's so light, accelerating to top speed in a matter of a few strokes. It's easy to get in and out and I've even take my dog out a few times and haven't had issues with tippiness at all.
