Makers on the move
MIDDLEBURY UNION HIGH School senior Ancel Coburn zips along Maple Street on a motorized scooter Monday pulling his friend Henry Swan, whose neat sneakers are fitted with wheels that allow him to roll along at a relatively high speed. The duo likes to fiddle with design software and bring their ideas into reality and consider themselves “makers.” Coburn, for instance, designed a pair of skates to attach to his shoes, and then used a 3-D printer to actually create the skates. “We’ve done a lot of dumb stuff,” Swan said ironically.
