The Maker Movement and the Spirit of Innovation

World Maker Faire 2016 and the Avnet Innovation Lab

It’s that time of year again. When the LEDs blink, the DYI drones buzz, and there is a special 3D printed charge in the air. With a little help from Fish Fry special correspondent Larra Morris, this week’s podcast takes you to this year’s World Maker Faire in Brooklyn, New York. Larra brings us a special selection of some of the new fabrication technologies unveiled at this year’s Maker Faire including a super cool PCB printer called Voltera, brand new low-cost pick-and-place, and a company who claims to be the easiest assembly service in the world. Do you have a startup that could use a little extra help and some cold hard cash? This week we also check out how the Avnet Innovation Lab can help you take your startup to the next level.
