WTF is the Maker Movement?!
Described as a ‘do-it-yourself culture on steroids,’ the Maker Movement is all about everyday people utilizing open source technologies to create their own innovative projects. Facilitated by the Arduino microcontroller, makers have been able to come up with projects such as plants that tweet you when they need to be watered and homemade 3D printers. These open source technologies have made it easier for people to integrate the physical and digital world, and in turn democratizing the making process.
