Makers’ Generation

“The untold ability of this generation of makers could quite possibly be the quietest revolution-taking place. “

Makers' Generation - LA New Product Development TeamNever before has the world seen a generation more motivated to create, innovate and develop life-changing machinery and ideas. Unlike other genres of Do It Yourself, such as gardening and even construction, the mechanical and electronic genre is seeing it’s first generation of self-motivated makers. The ability and know-how to create electronic and mechanical equipment right from home is a revolutionary idea, one that has recently taken hold of a generation.

The three most common areas of creation for the maker movement include engineering, robotics, and 3D printing. Metalworking, woodworking and arts and crafts can be considered sub-groups of this fascinating movement. For the individuals who are a part of this genre, the focus is on gaining abilities that lend themselves to expanding their skillset in design work. The practicality of these abilities cannot be overstated, especially in today’s tech driven world.

Importance of the Maker’s Movement

Of course, we might ask ourselves, how is this culture and new movement important to America’s future? The answer is simple—it benefits the economic strength and growth of our nation. Independent innovators, designers and even tinkerers have the potential to create untold job growth and trade exports, if the right investors can find them.

Events like the Maker Faire that took place just 20 miles south of San Francisco, display numerous projects that have the potential to revolutionize life as we know it. Inventions relating to Robotics, mechanical engineering, product development and much more were on the table. Many of which could improve human life by providing the medical industry better equipment to work with, thereby possibly saving human lives. The untold ability of this generation of makers could quite possibly be the quietest revolution-taking place.
