Maker Movement... the New RevolutionNovember 5, 2013

The Maker Movement, inspired in DIY (Do-It-Yourself) philosophy, is being considered the seed of the III Industrial Revolution, as wrote by journalist from The Economist or Wired Magazine. A world movement where art, science and technology join with the aim of create and innovate through the use of new tools, available only for a few people... until now.

We love to promote this new revolution, attending events, collaborating with other organizations for makers, or giving our own workshops. Everything in our hand to teach this new philosophy to the world.

New philosophy? Not in theory but in resources. Do you remember when you were a child? We've always wanted to build things by ourselves and show them to the world: from our figures and hand-works for our parents to our recipes in the kitchen. The feel watching the faces of our family while receiving a present or our friend eating something tasty cooked by us.

Makers love to create anything in their hands using these new resources brought by the Open Hardware philosophy. Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone or Waspmote brings the opportunity to explore an universe of possibilities, from digital art to hobbyist projects.

Events like Maker Faire can be a meeting point for many makers who want to show their projects to other people. Along this last year, we have offered many keynotes, workshops and hackathons, not only in Spain (where we are from) but in countries like UK, Italy or USA, meeting people from Hackerspaces, Fablabs or universities involved in this maker movement. Here you can see some links for past events where you can feel the maker atmosphere.
