In my life-long goal of becoming a better maker, designer, researcher, thinker and person, I enrolled in the FabAcademy course "How to make almost everything". This course, originating from the MIT, provides hands-on training to the resources for designing and fabricating smart systems (including 3D printing, laser cutting; PCB layout and fabrication; sensors and actuators; wired and wireless communications). Over the upcoming weeks, I am going to share some of my maker findings, so hopefully you can learn how to make something too.
