Rock Paper Scissors Glove by Steve Hoefer
We're fortunate to be surrounded by a large community of nerds and DIYers in the Bay Area. The community is a constant source of inspiration for me, whether I'm looking to create a self-destroying robot (as I was for Sparkfun's Antimov competition) or a piece of wearable art.
Here are a couple local makers to follow for creative ideas, inspiring designs and to spark your imagination:
When Steve and I first met in a crafting group, I had no idea what an accomplished maker he was. Game designer by day and maker by night, Steve has made items such as a Rock Paper Scissors Glove (seen above), a Secret Knock Detecting Gumball Machine that he showed off at Maker Faire and much much more. His work, hacks and mods have been featured on Gizmodo, Lifehacker, BoingBoing, MAKE and many others. Check out this video of Steve's Secret Knock Detecting Lock.
