Learn about Making, 2: Videos

Reblogged from Health Design By Us

We #makehealth Fest- August 16th! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxWMpCMInNA

Here’s more on learning about making, today with videos! I started writing this post talking about how to find videos about making and #makehealth to learn more about them, and then Andrew Maynard was inspired to make a RiskBites-style video for us!!! Can you tell I’m excited? I refrained from more than three exclamation points. So, please, watch our video first (it’s short), but the rest of the post is about videos by other people about making.

Last week I talked about the summer camp and the online course. If you dug into those you would have probably found their videos! There are a lot more, however, and there is even a MOVIE about the maker movement, and we are going to show it over the lunch hour at our event. It is going to be great!

Below you will find a sampling of videos illustrating some of the range of what’s available on the topic of making. Included are both general making and health making, finding good Youtube Channels, persons, “topics”, and project examples. In each category, I’ll try to highlight at least one and then give links to more in each category.


Maker learning events NOW

First a few videos from the groups highlighted last week.

The Google Science Fair just had a Google Hangout with last year’s winner, Eric Chen. Eric’s project was: “Computer-aided Discovery of Novel Influenza Endonuclease Inhibitors to Combat Flu Pandemic.”

The MOOC course on Tinkering? They not only had a brief video to introduce the idea of the class, with more videos and tutorials in the class, but then had Hangouts during the source, all of which are archived online.

Make Magazine (Screenshot)MakerFaire Videos (Screenshot)

The Maker Camp people also have their own video channel, with interviews and archived Hangouts. Not only do they have the Maker Camp videos, but also the Maker Faire videos, AND individual projects from Make Magazine. I was surprised to find that they ALSO have some video from these various maker sources included in the channel for their sister publication CraftZine.

Hacking Health (Screenshot)NIH 3D Print Exchange (Screenshot)

Some of these channels are people talking about things they’ve learned how to do. Other are from organizations, even ones like NIH or the NHS (UK). Some of them are kind of conservative, while others are edgy, or even risky. (For example, I was a little floored when I saw a video on how to remove magnetized sensors from under your skin.) One of my favorites is the new service from NIH for people sharing tips and tricks with 3D printing. Some of these people have gotten so good at what they are doing they have become consultants and are selling their services for training, so you might see advertisements. Despite that, these are just a small selection of the various types of people and organizations sharing information about tools and techniques for improving your own health (beyond diet and exercise).

You probably already know that you can subscribe on Youtube to follow the videos of a particular user, but did you know that you can also subscribe to follow specific topics? Here are just a few I’ve selected to highlight topics related to making health, as well as tools and techniques often used by people interested in taking charge of their own health.

Here are just a few randomly selected examples of individual videos on projects. If you come up with an idea for something you want to try, maybe someone else has already done it, and you don’t have to completely make it from scratch! The search box may be your friend, you never know until you look.
