Top 30 DIY Ideas in June

From 3D-Printed Checkerboards to Bespoke Wine-Making Kits

— July 3, 2016 — Art & Design
As the June 2016 DIY trends reveal, marker culture is no longer limited to hands-on projects. Indeed, consumers are now making use of technology such as 3D printers and Raspberry Pi to take their projects to the next level.

These days, some of the most popular DIY tutorials are those that involve using 3D printers to create multidimensional objects. These tutorials range from simple projects such as checkerboards and puzzles to complicated ideas such as cosplay costumes and even musical instruments.

The June 2016 DIY trends also demonstrate a growing demand for DIY projects that involve using Raspberry Pi. For instance, there are DIY tutorials for making TV remotes that allow users to change channels with nothing but simple gestures. Another example is the Arduino Music Visualizer, which involves turning an IKEA coffee table into a DIY music visualizer.
