  • “Chris Anderson: Bits to Atoms” “post information age” “digital backlash” “convergence of technology and art; Tech is open to the creative”, “Convergence of disciplines, materials, skills” “SO much convergence at times its hard to define is this a tool, a community, or a vendor?”
  • “Form 1: 25 micons, Prodesk 3d 25 microns, Replicator 2: 100 microns, Human hair 100-150 microns, solidoodle 300 microns” “thermoplastics, photpolymers, powders” “Shopbots’s Handibot $2K – portable cnc machine” “there will be some benefits for SL (cost around 250K), but all improvements made in past 20 years will not be accounted for”, “Stratasys purchased Makerbot 400 Million”,
  • “Zbrush: Digital sculpting and the industry standard, high poly counts (Sculptris: entry level)”, “3ds Max – Autodesk animation, standard for video games (Maya is scriptable and used often in film” , “Wings 3D polygon modeling vs Blender dynamic”, “Tinkercad is web based”, “Cheetah 3d is for OSX”, “matter Remix – MIT simplified modeling, Instagram of 3d modeling share models”, “123d premium offers Instructables Pro + downloading premium models”, “Autodesk offers variety of 123D products for iOS, PC, browser ties to Makerbot, sharing models”, “123D products are: Design for modeling, sculpt/creature for sculpting.”
  • “Your affordable Laser cutter”
  • “digital graffiti” “ “falling letters”
  • “E-Textiles- subset of smart & interactive textiles”, “also known as soft circuits or wearables “ Mindstorm, squishy circuits, Little Bits and MakeyMakey great examples of reusable kits”
  • “Adafruit, Sparkfun, offer lots of videos tutorials” “ makershed is highly curated for attention grabbing Make magazine stuff” “seeed is your general parts warehouse, direct Chinese parts” “Tindie allows 3rd party sellers”, “Radioshack DIY partnering with Pop Mechanics, Wired, Instructables & make”, ”Dangerous things-biohacking”, “
  • Shapeways: slow, cheaper, Scultpeo fast, costly (France) “3D printing Price check”, “Ponoko – Laser Cutting as well, electronics, multi material pieces” “Make XYZ-Find printers in your area”, “100K- contract a fabricator”, UPS about 6 franchises with 3D printers: Stratasys FDM Water soluable supports”, “Staples offers an online service in Netherlands only”
  • “Instructables: The how to website, great pictures- Share what you make”, “Fashioning Tech from book fashioning technology, active forum/articles”, SuTree- Learn how to do thing by watching videos”, “Doityourself.com- actual forums and experts, place to share, lacks the fluff of DIY channel”, “IFIXIT- mostly device fixing, community answered” “3ders- all about 3d printing, forums troubleshooting”
