Makers Making for Pandemics

DIYODE Magazine

Issue 33, April 2020

Inspirational projects from makers around the globe that help prevent the spread of infectious disease.

As Rob mentioned in his Editor’s letter this month, we have observed some incredible creations from makers on social media lately related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We were so amazed by the talents of makers all around the world that we wanted to share some of them with you here. These may inspire you to make your own project for your home or workplace.

Please note, we have tried to credit the designer where possible, however, with the nature of resharing on social media, it can be difficult to know if some are the original post/author.
