As Dale Dougherty (co-founder with Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly Media) and Chris Anderson (former editor in chief of Wired Magazine and the author of Makers) pointed out, the “Maker Movement” has been attracting worldwide attention over recent years. In the era of the Maker Movement, people are not simply consumers but also “makers.” In his lecture, Shigeru Kobayashi will cover the possibilities of design, learning and industry in the era of the Maker Movement through following topics:
• Interaction design through prototyping: idea sketching and hardware sketching
• Open Source Hardware
In addition, Mariko Kuze will demonstrate a digital musical instrument consisting of craft and electronics.
