The Internet is a creative factory. An idea,... a few clicks...and your product is finished - provided you know how it works.
All kinds of materials from cardboard to acrylic glass, electronic parts and digitally operated manufacturing equipment are nowadays available any time and knowledge is generated in open source networks.
But the most important thing are the people who creatively and untiringly try things out and combine them anew. Only then something new, unique and useful comes into being.
Create. Art and Technology brings together these different people. Nov 4 - 6 2011, artists, hackers and designers, producers, tinkerers and engineers meet in Berlin.
