Our first-ever Product Hunt Makers Festival has been a celebration of creativity with teams and individuals from all corners of the globe coming together to launch something. Our showcase last week had close to 100 projects across our six themes: social impact, remote workers, voice and audio, health and beauty, inclusion and brain stuff. Makers also built awesome products outside the six categories!
