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
There was a lot of starch plastic (FKA bioplastic) iterations, at the event and more we hope to follow.
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
