Behind the Scenes with the Makers

Maker Faire

We’ve been learning about some pretty amazing movers & shakers (i.e. makers!) in the days leading to B&N’s 2nd Annual Mini Maker Faire, and now it’s time to take a deep dive into three we’re particularly excited about. From smart jewelry, to colorful books, to tiny electronic building blocks, Ringly,DK Publishing, and littleBits are sparking imaginations and making things happen.

An innovative blend of traditional jewelry crafting and modern technology is part of what makes Ringly’s smart jewelry so eye-catching—even as it tracks users’ steps, lets them know when they have an important call, and more. Learn how Ringly is seamlessly integrating fashion and tech below.

DK Publishing
DK Publishing creates colorful nonfiction books packed with informational illustrations to help teach children and adults about a wide range of subjects, ranging from science and nature, to technology. Go behind the scenes at DK and learn about how their innovative books come to be!
