DIY Gaming: Innovating maker culture
The emergence of desktop manufacturing is poised to revolutionize the way we make, think, and live. The proliferation of 3D printers, like Makerbot machines, and a laser cutters bring a potential for commercial customization that is unparalleled. Our goal was to invent a small-scale method of production, not mass-produced or craft products, with a clear and compelling story behind the idea.
There are many areas to explore where the potential of desktop manufacturing is profound. My project partner, John Lee and I, decided on merging traditional gaming culture, smart phone app games, and laser cutting to create TRINTY: A new form of gaming.
