Safari’s Maker Collection

“I certainly had no idea that many years later we’d be talking about a global maker movement,” Dale Dougherty said. “Indeed, what has happened is simultaneously that making and the geeks behind it have broken into the mainstream. Making is now popular.”

The maker movement continues to grow in the size of the community, as well as the various types of interesting projects that are created. A few recent projects include everything from 3-D body scanners to sonic screwdrivers, and a 3-D printer created by Made in Space will blast off to arrive at the International Space Station in 2014.

Arduino is an open source electronics framework developed for easy-to-create robotics, and is highly popular with makers everywhere. We have published a number of high quality posts focused on Arduino. They have been well-received, garnering a lot of attention and comments from our readers. In case you missed them, here is a collection of these posts, with descriptions and links to other relevant material in the Safari Book’s Online catalog.
