Makerspace tools

Amongst other new words joining the Oxford Dictionaries Online this month are the words hackerspace, and Internet of things,

hackerspace, n.: a place in which people with an interest in computing or technology can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge.

Internet of things, n.: a proposed development of the Internet in which everyday objects have network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data.

Other words added today: phablet, selfie and perhaps somewhat more regrettably, twerk.

What other maker related terms would you suggest for the OED? 

 

Alasdair Allan

Alasdair Allan is a scientist, author, hacker and tinkerer, who is spending a lot of his time thinking about the Internet of Things. In the past he has mesh networked the Moscone Center, caused a U.S. Senate hearing, and contributed to the detection of what was—at the time—the most distant object yet discovered.
