The Maker Movement is creativity without boundaries. A world of unhinged open research and development where iteration reigns free and brings back a hands on curiosity and innate appeal to the human condition to create something.
Central to the Maker Movement is participation and shared learning. As a result, communities are born around shared objectives and boosts innovation. The Maker Movement is no comparison to industry production, however the growth, interest, and momentum of 3000+ Maker and Hacker spaces globally cannot be denied.
The journey of a maker is often a personal endeavor which other Makers can relate to. A famously repeated example of a Makers journey is that of Steve Wozniak and Apple, which started in a garage, and credits innovation stemming from the 1970s Homebrew Computer Club.
Similarly, in this age, the democratization of access to STEM domains combined with increased access to tools and hardware, is amplified by global communication and participation. This makes for exciting future possibilities.
