Across these applications, the Maker Movement is propelled by (a) the introduction of new technologies, like 3D printers, laser cutters and Arduino robotics, that allow for faster prototyping and new forms of digital fabrication; and (b) the rise of the internet, which allows for the sourcing of parts as well as the widespread sharing of ideas...a central facet of the learning promoted by the Maker Movement is that it is interest-driven; today's Maker Movement encourages the making and sharing of artifacts with high personal and social significance, ranging from robotics, 3D printed objects, high-tech fashion, hydroponic gardens, videogames, culinary oddities, textile crafts, and woodcrafts; in short, making and sharing nearly anything. )
