News from the DIY HQ: Caption/Background Contest - FORK IT!
So we introduced the idea of “forking” a while back and it’s become a sort of social currency on the site. By forking a project, a DIYer is paying the ultimate compliment to a fellow user by making iterations to their project and remaking it into something that they can call their own.
We’re constantly planting seeds in the community and trying to promote this type of behavior so that forking becomes a common form of interaction on the site. Forking is not purely social, it also inspires kids to get creative and make something that they might never have thought to try. Lately, we’ve been playing around with our green screen and created our first #capcon contest, encouraging makers to have some fun with photoshop. Hilarious submissions are rolling and we’re amazed at how our growing community is responding, click here to check out some of the awesome projects.
Industrial Designer Challenge: Build a Chair!
Industrial Designers work to make the objects in our lives more usable. We design for people, solving important problems with unexpected solutions. Draw or build a prototype chair. It’s nice if the chair looks great, even better if it’s comfortable to sit in – that’s Ergonomics!
