Q&A with Sexy Cyborg, China’s most notorious Maker – SupChina.

SupChina: How did you get into Maker culture and 3D printing?
Naomi: Started off as a self-taught coder. Three years ago there was a window where pretty much anyone with basic skills in Ruby on Rails (a web development framework) could easily get work online. Once you are used to learning online, the sky is the limit. From coding, I became more exposed to the local hardware development scene, which of course ties into the Maker movement. 3D printers are one of the primary tools of the Maker movement.


SupChina: If you had enough money, time, and the right tech, what do you want to make most of all?
Naomi: A comprehensive, interactive, open-source, primary school education in cross-platform digital form. Something to make sure that all the rural kids in China have access to a solid education, despite shortages of teachers and resources. Everything from math, reading, and writing to health education, first aid, and preparing nutritious meals with minimal resources, etc. The core of primary education has barely changed in decades, there’s no reason large parts of it can’t be automated and taught more efficiently and scientifically.
