Lauren Britton Presentation; and What I Made

Today we were given a presentation by the creator of Makerspaces- Lauren Britton. She explained to us the process of how she first thought of the idea, and how she created her first 3d printer, and functional Makerspace. She also explained her more recent research to us about body modification, and cyborgs.

After the presentation we were tasked with creating a product  from craft supplies which can modify a part or function of the body.

My product was the Ocuaware, a pair of glasses which can either dispense a chemical which allows you to see in the dark temporarily, or upon wearing them will allow you to see in the dark as long as you wear them.

I made the goggles from pipe cleaner, buttons, paperclips, string, glue, wooden dowels, and a small cell phone camera.
