The Maker Lab team has returned from the 2013 Digital Humanities Summer Institute. We had a blast. Some photos from the “Physical Computing and Desktop Fabrication” course, which I co-taught with Bill Turkel and Devon Elliott, are above. Descriptions and links to the originals are below. See you at next year’s Institute, where Bill, Devon, and I are again facilitating physcomp and desktop fab.
