Companies around the world are creating room for physical making in the workplace, for employees to get their hands dirty with screen printing, woodworking, circuitry, and more. But what does physical making have to do with building better products? Are these spaces a distraction or can they have a lasting impact on business and culture?
This panel brings together creatives from Pinterest, Nike, and IBM, to discuss how spaces like this come to be, why they exist, and how they're changing the modern workplace.
