* Make

Posted on April 26th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Review.

I finally got my hands on a copy of Make today. It’s a DIY technology magazine. Pretty neat. Their first issue came out a while back, but at $14.99 I didn’t spring for it myself. It’s a nice mix of stuff, though. There’s a whole article on how to build a kite camera. Other highlights: an interesting sounding blogging aid called Ecto that helps with images and HTMLing entries, a soldering tutorial, and how to make a rail gun. It’s also just fun to read about all the people hacking things and enjoying it so much. Made me want to build *something*, if not a particular something in the magazine. I’ll always be an MIT girl at heart, I guess.

    My hubby and I got this magazine too. Very neat! I liked the kite camera, hubby liked the mag card reader. Another couple of nerds…
