It’s not just about "doing it yourself," or about how things get made. The maker movement is about revolutionizing how we reimagine things, prototype them and distribute them to the world.
Mark Hatch, former CEO of TechShop and author of The Maker Movement Manifesto, spoke at the VERGE 16 event in Santa Clara, California about what this means to the manufacturing, tech and retail sectors.
"The tools of the industrial revolution are now cheaper, easier to use and more powerful then they have ever been in all human history," said Hatch. "If you are in the middle class, you can now innovate."
