15 Dangerously Mad Projects for the Evil Genius appeals to adventure-minded hobbyists with a touch of the mischievous. It also taps into the trend of "hacking and modding" existing equipment to give it a new purpose. Simon Monk provides detailed instructions and designs for 15 exciting electronics projects, from a single-stage coil gun to a mini laser turret to a surveillance robot.
Each project is contained in its own chapter and includes an accessible explanation of the theory behind the project, as well as the practical, step-by-step details of assembly, thoroughly illustrated and photographed. The projects arent truly dangerous in the sense that they are likely to cause serious harm, but they do require common sense and adult supervision.
