Stick Stand – Tara Carstensen-Wheeler
“I’ve always made stuff. If I’m not making something, there’s something seriously wrong with me. I’m constantly looking at things, looking at how to make them better, incorporate them into other things, trying to make them do things they really weren’t originally meant to do. My hands are usually in tatters; ripped up nails, cuts, burns, blisters, scrapes, bruises, rough, covered with bits of ink, paint, wood putty or glue. Eyes may be the windows to the soul, but a life is observed in the hands.” ~Tara Carstensen-Wheeler
Tara’s Stick Stand project is featured in the current issue of Make Magazine (#30). It’s a mod of a ball-head monopod that allows it to safely hold an iPad or similar pad tablet.
Come see how to MAKE things better at Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire 2012.
