Chris Anderson
DIY Drones/3D Robotics

One weekend, Wired editor-in-chief Chris Anderson and his 9-year-old son hacked together a Lego Mindstorms with a model airplane—the first Lego drone. The results inspired Chris to start DIY Drones, the world's largest community of unmanned aerial vehicle enthusiasts, and leave Wired to launch 3D Robotics, a company manufacturing the open-source hardware the community designed. This experience with indie hardware led to his most recent book, Makers: The New Industrial Revolution.
