3-D printing. Mass customization. A new generation of makers. A move overseas – or maybe a renaissance in American manufacturing, depending on who you ask. We’re at a crossroads in the future of making and manufacturing.
Breaker 2013: The Future of Stuff (we’re calling it #MakerBreaker) is open to anybody who wants to take on the challenge – yes, that means you.
Our prototype is a 14-day design thinking and entrepreneurship challenge that runs from today through July 2. Check out the site at http://futureofstuffchallenge.org. To sign up for the course, fill out this registration form. We’ve got a small group meeting daily here at the d.school, or you can go through the challenge wherever in the world you are.
This year’s Maker Breaker is a collaboration between Project Breaker and the d.school’s K12 Lab Network. To see our learning materials and learn more about the course, visit http://futureofstuffchallenge.org.
