Bright and early next Tuesday morning, I’ll hop aboard a plane and wing my way to New York to spend what’s coming to be called “Maker Week” embedded with our editorial team covering all the amazing events that lead up to, and include, World Maker Faire New York. It’s going to be a blast, and if you’re anywhere within day-trip travel distance of Queens, you owe it to yourself to partake. You’ll see things and learn things you’d never have imagined you’d experience, and come away inspired to make.
One key focus of the event this year is 3D printing. Indeed, it’s been a focus previously, but each year the fire seems to grow exponentially hotter around this technology. There will be dozens of machines from a score of companies represented, demonstrating a variety of technologies and levels of sophistication that only makers can bring to an effort.
