Joseph Neighbor | April 15, 2016

This trend has supported a surging global “Maker Movement” consisting of DIY software designers, artists, musicians, designers tinkerers, and entrepreneurs who are using these devices as a means to wildly imaginative ends. The resulting innovation has enormous implications for the emerging Internet of Things, which promises to make everything from shoes to traffic grids “intelligent” and connected.
