Gin & Tronic began as a personal blog for Cornish designer, promoter, carpenter and tinkerer Alec Short representing projects surrounding the world of digital making, art, and data visualization.

I’m very interested in making the digital world interact with the physical world, the internet of things. (IoT) and all things Open Source. I like to promote the education and benefits of making and the art of tinkering.

All products listed on Gin & Tronic are open source and encourage learning through the project source files and maybe making a version of your own!
