Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who wouldn’t want to invent a robot that makes and serves you cocktails, or to build and play a life-sized Operation game? Not to mention creating and wielding your own DIY light saber! Now readers can make their own versions of these nerdtastic crafts (along with 100 more crazy and cool tech projects) with the helpful, handy, and often hilarious Geek Toys.

There’s a new movement afoot—a whole generation of makers and tech-savvy innovators who excel at making wild and fascinating projects using electronics and found materials. In Geek Toys, you get a collection of these amazing ideas from the DIY masters at Popular Science magazine—from a theremin you can make for under $15 to a motorized skateboard, from an epic potato gun to an LED lighter you can wave during rock-concert power ballads. It’s never been a better time to be a geek.
