The workshop by Modulab group is presenting the maker movement and its importance for the economy and culture. The workshop will cover various aspects of the demands and initiatives of prosumers-consumers in Romania. Furthermore, it will present practical examples and allow the participants to take part in the construction of various devices. The Romanian maker-movement has a long tradition. During the communist era electronic devices were redesigned to compensate for the economy of scarcity or in order to secretly contact the outside world. The land has benefitted tremendously from this ingenuity: nowadays, Romania has one of the best internet connections for file sharing and downloads. In addition, the participants will create their own theremins – electronic musical instruments from the 1920s that can be played without physical contact.
