John Young, a contributor to MAKE, is going to host a gorilla suit making workshop in Philadelphia. He says:
I thought you or someone you know might enjoy an opportunity to come to Philly this fall and pool your talents with others to construct a gorilla suit to your/their own exacting specifications (motorcycle helmet? jetpack mounts? swordcane?)
To educate my friends about old-school Gorilla Suit madcappery and tell them what I have planned, I've put this together.
No single article of clothing is as versatile as the gorilla suit. You can wear a gorilla suit to an embassy party, to a jewel heist, to a high-speed car chase, and then practice your slamdunks in it, all in a single evening.

But the fancy-dress gorilla suits of the past aren't made anymore. Even the patterns to sew your own are out of print. That's a tragedy.
People with fiberglass skills especially welcome. Those masks are hard!

Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
They probably just sleep a lot. But still, you can remotely keep an eye on them when you’re at work and missing them deeply with this HD monitor from Kodak.If you have a new puppy that destroys everything in sight, or you just want to be a little more security-conscious, this WiFi camera is a […]
Thinking of a business idea is the easy part. Doesn’t even have to be a “good” idea, you can still get people to throw money at a non-existent venture, but to do that you need to at least have something even resembling a viable business plan. Why doesn’t anyone do it then? Because building that semi-viable […]
