I'm presently drafting a monster post trying to tell a story of stories about the Epicness of the DMY Maker Lab. The vibe was so intense with maker energy and fun, that at times I nearly cried with joy.
As well as the emergence of the space (see below), there were a number of product outputs which I will attempt to document as best I can. I apologise in advance for the absence of documentation and accreditation, because I do not know the creators of all objects. However I encourage them to come forward and share their files and processes.
Luis was building a light frame for the starch plastic lampshades, it subsequently evolved into a futuristic helmet that did the talking for him @ Pecha Kucha DMY.
Laser cut rings were proving a popular hit, I hope we can get some photo's of Zelda's name knuckle dusters
Mendel constructed a laser cut frame for starch plastic lighting, but we decided it was beautiful in it's own right.
I was very pleased with the lightness of this lampshade. It's unfinished beta quality indicates maker process, and invites the user to finish it.
Some laser cut bling
I love this laser cut necklace, will try and get the source files from waag (hopefully it will be entered in the (Un) limited design competition, the same applies to the bag below.
There was a lot of starch plastic (FKA bioplastic) iterations, at the event and more we hope to follow.
Big thanks to everybody who helped make this event rock - especially these guy's, DMY, Etsy and Becks
The DMY Maker Lab was a collaborative emergent event, created by everybody that attended. If you were a part of it, please tell your story.
We will be having a public "Decompression" on Tuesday for those interested to hear and share stories and outcomes from the event, plus exploring where next for the Open Design City
