Make It: How to DIY Event

at 10:17 pm. Filed under Electronic Hacks


Mark Frauenfelder, Editor of Make Magazine and Adam Savage, who hosts Mythbusters will be be putting on an event that you need to put on your calendar if you are in the area. I am told that Fora will be filming the event so if you can’t make it there you will still be able to watch the event.

Thanks Michel.

You know that guy or girl who can make or fix anything? Yes, the same MacGyver wannabe who repairs a flat tire with an empty water bottle and a pen. You can now compete with these handy heroes. Especially now, in times of financial hardship, people want to fix and create useful and awesome gadgets from scratch. Make Magazine leads this “yes I can” attitude with tips for new self-sufficiency. From fixing your cracked iPhone screen to make-shifting an aerial camera rig from Popsicle sticks, a drugstore kite and Play-Doh, Make has it all. Find out where technophile and editor-in-chief Frauenfelder plans to lead this DIY movement.

Maker Faire Update:
As if Mr. Make and Mr. Mythbuster aren’t interesting enough, we are securing a solid lineup of DIY creations to follow their ‘bot’ banter. Behold yourselves, INFORUMers, for the glove that plays Rock-Paper-Scissors, animated Luminas as morphing light sprites, and the sky — like you’ve never seen it before.

Location: SF Club Office
Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 p.m. networking reception/mini Maker Faire
Cost: MEMBERS FREE, $20 non-members, $7 students (with valid ID)
