I started The Toymaker Project as a place to think about technological empowerment with respect to sexuality, gender and pleasure.  How can we make, hack or adapt technology to serve our wants and needs?

I’m a maker, and I work to learn how to build the kinds of toys that I want to play with.  I enjoy learning from other geeks, makers and hackers (regardless of whether they identify as kinky) and from other sex-positive and kink-positive people (regardless of whether they identify as makers or geeks).  I have a Ph.D. in robotics, but I’ve spent more time trying to understand people than I have building stuff.

The goal of The Toymaker Project is to empower other people to find out more about themselves and become toy makers and hackers, too.
