On November 3rd, author, Brian David Johnson will explore the world of science fiction prototyping techniques from his new book, 21st Century Robot, and share stories about robots and the process used to make them real.  Brian will be accompanied by Wayne Losey, David Barrett, Anna Kaziunas France and Brian Jepson at Olin College, and online, he will be joined by Gui Cavalanti, Ross Mead and Make editors.

Maker Faire

About Maker Faire:

Maker Faire is a celebration of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness inspiring the future for the maker community across the globe. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.  


Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.


The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2019 celebrated its 14th annual faire with more than 800 exhibitors, makers, presenters, and speakers. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown exponentially in the last 15 years. Forty larger scale Maker Faires occur in cities around the world—Berlin, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shenzhen to name a few—and over 170 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced in the United States and in 44 other countries around the world.


About Make: Magazine

Make: is the first magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technology projects. Make: unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages. Make: celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will.
