Robots, 3D printers, virtual reality and more

The Westport Library's MakerSpace digital guru joins Denise

Watch The Drive with Denise DiGrigoli live Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. or watch this week’s show, below:

Alex Giannini is the Manager of Digital Experience at the Westport Library, where he gets to experiment with all kinds of new technologies — from robots to virtual reality — in the library’s MakerSpace. While he is always on the lookout for the latest innovation.

MakerSpace is a place for creation, collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship. Now in its third year, the MakerSpace has expanded, thanks to a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The Westport Library has big events coming up including March’s overnight Maker Madness and the 5th annual Mini Maker Faire, where inventors from all over the globe will descend upon Westport to show off their talent.

Alex is also a children’s author and he shares his latest project with us.

Later in the show, Denise gives us a “Mindful Minute” of tips for motivation and creativity.
