We saw lots of cool stuff at SXSWi – some great panels, some great barbecue and some lovely people. (Lets not talk about the drinking right now.)
We also saw some publications that might interest the more hands on MOO people out there.
For the crafters, we came across Craft magazine. A project based publication dedicated to the new wave of crafting.
I fell in love with the first issue, sporting knitted robots on the cover and an article entitled ‘Embroider your skateboard’. The second issue covers everything from making a small cabinet from circuit boards, to crochet, to sculpting wool into beautiful, felted fruit and vegetables.
The magazine is based on traditional crafting techniques, but brings brand new twists and ideas. If you’re looking for inspiration or want to try out something new, check it out.
Make is Craft’s sister publication, for the more technically minded. Devoted to DIY technology projects, the current issue features articles on pinhole cameras, building a cloud chamber, and a $5 Cracker Box amplifier.
If you’re a tech person, and you’re missing the fun of hands on, DIY science, check out Make. Just don’t blow yourself up in the process, mmkay?
Are you thinking this is an ad? It’s not. I just really want someone to knit me a robot. Really.
We know that lots of you are great ambassadors for MOO and so we've been thinking of a way to say thank you. Which is why you can now actually earn money off your next order when you refer friends to MOO.Find out more
