The Next Maker Movement

Future Tech, Now

Tuesday, May 12, 1:00 pm to 1:20 pm in Theater

Since those early Maker Faires of 8-bit Arduinos and 3D printers much has changed, from the the wide availability of powerful smartphone-class electronics to the rise of polished crowdfunded campaigns. So what’s now at the DIY bleeding edge, still experimental but soon to be mainstream? This talk will take a quick tour through the next big things, from 3D CNC, carbon printing and conductive inks to reality capture and, of course, fully autonomous smart drones.
