An unfamiliar make

The other day I was standing in line at the local grocery store and started looking at the magazines. One title caught my eye.

The magazine is called "Make," and since I hadn’t seen a new magazine about making things for a long time, I started leafing through the pages.

There was nothing that even vaguely resembled anything I recognized. Then I realized that this was a magazine about the new concept of making.

The pages were filled with articles about 3D printers and CAD programs. The objects being made mostly looked like models for characters in a Star Wars movie. The technology is fascinating, but it all seemed about as far away from the idea of being a "maker" as one could get.

I don't usually feel old, but I am starting to feel a bit out of step.
