Vote For Your Favorite Make-A-Thon Project

Posted By on Wed, Feb 26, 2014 at 4:32 PM

Makers and big thinkers have been around forever. Finally, local collaborative groups like Start Up Tucson, Xerocraft and CoLab Workspace are bringing local liked minded individuals to create stuff. Last Saturday's pre-Make-A-Thon event is a perfect example of the exceptionally prolific talented folks among us. The event was "aimed at fostering creative development in the local hacker and crafter communities." Some created a sleep cycle alarm clock, chicken-wire satellite dish and the world's first Tweet-a-Cola machine.

One of the main goals of the weekend was to provide a space where groups and individuals with varying skill sets could work on an idea in a team setting that enables them to combine their different areas of expertise. The teams had many tools at their disposal, including laser cutting, wood cutting, and 3-dimensional printing provided by both Xerocraft and Maker House.

Click here to see all the inventions and vote on your favorite project. The winners will be announced at the Makeathon on Saturday, March 1, at Maker House, 283 N Stone Ave.
