We adore our cars and we love that the technology they come equipped with are put there to ensure our safety and that our car operates at an optimal level. Everyone knows that when our car is running at its’ peak performance we save. We save gas as well as our personal selves from possible harm, and we save on surance. Yet we still see tire blowouts on the side of the road almost every day. Why? If our cars come fully loaded with warning systems, like Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) that prevent our tires from coming to dangerously low levels before we add air and prevent those scary blowouts, then please explain why that light goes on right before or after that blowout occurs. Are the concepts there but the failure to launch at the necessary moment inhibiting our safety when it comes to tire pressure?

Charles clues us in on Makerspaces in his latest feature article over at TweakTown.com

Makerspaces: What are they and why do they matter?


Within the last decade the DIY movement has grown from projects in basements and garages to a collective movement of people gathering together in cities and across the country to something much larger than it ever was before.
