What's the same size as the iPad, but even more wonderful? Why, the newest issue of MAKE, of course!
The latest issue of MAKE, Volume 22, is already wending its way across the planet and into the calloused hands of anxious makers. It will be available on newsstands on April 10th. We know we say this every time, but we think this one is a particularly awesome issue. The theme is "Remote Control Everything," and we cast a wide net in exploring everything from state-of-the-art radio-control (R/C) technology to controlling gadgets remotely over the internet.A four-issue subscription is just $24.95, or about 1/20th the cost of the cheapest iPad!
Projects in the issue include building an R/C-controlled lawn mower, a cat toy that tweets when your kitty is playing with it, and a toy car you can control with your mind! (Okay, that last one involves a trick, but it's still cool.) You'll also learn about foamies, Frankensteining, and aqua modeling. What on earth are we talking about? You'll just have to get the issue to find out!
(Thanks for noticing the similar form-factors, Donald!)
