The word Tinker dates back to the 13th Century and back then was a tin smith that mended household utensils. Over the years the meaning has changed and continues to do so today. What tinkering means to us is the process of adapting, meddling or adjusting something in the course of making repairs or improvements as it applies to modern makers.
Right now, there is a new manufacturing revolution occurring, with modern technologies made more available to everyone. User friendly CAD, 3D printers, easy to program micro computer boards and new robotics are a few of the exciting technologies that are rapidlly gaining popularity and are going to improve the things we use in this world at faster pace than ever before. It is opening a whole new world for Artists, Hobbyists, Designers and Inventors.
Our name and slogan, "Free Tinkers, a 'Secret' Society of Free Thinkers that like to Tinker" -- is a play on words that combines the thought process of the Secret Societies of Free Thinkers of the 16th Century in a modern world, breaking down barriers and the walls of the institution.
