Syuzi Pakhchyan's Fashioning Technology is a DIY Bible For Geeks

Hit Up Next Year's Maker Faire As a Maker With DIY Books!

Not only did this year's Maker Faire offer lots of crafty-techie things to swoon over and purchase, some makers offered gifts of knowledge — like Syuzi Pakhchyan's upcoming book, Fashioning Technology: A DIY Intro to Smart Crafting.

Her book and its crafts, including the Rock Star headphones in the gallery, make me want to whip out my sewing machine and put together these simple but clever geeky crafts for me and my friends.

Syuzi, whose résumé calls her a "roboticist" (how do I get that behind my name?!), represented at Maker Faire last year, too, so I couldn't be more stoked to read her book and start sewing. It starts shipping in August, so preorder yours now!

I love DIY books. Has anyone seen tutorials on how to make your own cell phone or ipod case out of felt. It's pretty interesting. I saw an iPhone felt case that had all the little icons on it, it was pretty cute!

I heard there are lots of displays involving fire??? Apparently there's alot of bleed over between the burning man scene and this event. I'm so not a west coaster.

If I had known this Maker Faire thing existed, I totally would have gone. Oh well. But this is awesome! I'm a bookmaker myself and it's great that my art and craft is getting some exposure, especially considering that we're quickly seeing the death of the book.
