Make It: How to DIY @The Commonwealth Club


Interested in learning what some of the greatest minds in the Maker scene have in store for the future? This Saturday, catch our own Mark Frauenfelder at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, where he will talk with Adam Savage from MythBusters about where he sees the DIY movement heading. Sounds like a fun event:

Make It: How to DIY
Mark Frauenfelder, Editor, Make Magazine
In conversation with Adam Savage, Host, “MythBusters”

You know that guy or girl who can make or fix anything? Yes, the same MacGyver wannabe who repairs a flat tire with an empty water bottle and a pen. You can now compete with these handy heroes. Especially now, in times of financial hardship, people want to fix and create useful and awesome gadgets from scratch. MAKE magazine leads this “yes I can” attitude with tips for new self-sufficiency. From fixing your cracked iPhone screen to make-shifting an aerial camera rig from Popsicle sticks, a drugstore kite and Play-Doh, Make has it all. Find out where technophile and editor-in-chief Frauenfelder plans to lead this DIY movement.

As if Mr. Make and Mr. Mythbuster aren’t interesting enough, we are securing a solid lineup of DIY creations to follow their ‘bot’ banter. Behold yourselves, INFORUMers, for the glove that plays Rock-Paper-Scissors, animated Luminas as morphing light sprites, and the sky — like you’ve never seen it before.

    In case it’s not clear from the excerpt, after the talk there will be a mini-Maker Faire.

    We (Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories) will be bringing our tabletop Pong game, so if you didn’t get to play it at Maker Faire, here’s your chance!
