Publisher Comments:

The first magazine devoted entirely to do-it-yourself technology projects presents its 25th quarterly edition for people who like to tweak, disassemble, recreate, and invent cool new uses for technology.

MAKE Volume 25 is all about the Arduino Revolution!

Give your gadgets a brain! Previously out of reach for the do-it-yourselfer, the tiny computers called microcontrollers are now so cheap and easy to use that anyone can make their stuff smart. With a microcontroller, your gadget can sense the environment, talk to the internet or other hardware, and make things happen in the real world by controlling motors, lights, or any electronic device.

The Arduino is an easy-to-use microcontroller board — it's like an R&D lab on your kitchen table for prototyping any gadget. We show you how to make one, and how to use Arduinos and other microcontrollers to make an automatic yogurt maker, a vintage Skype telephone, a gumball machine that recognizes your secret knock, and more.

Plus, make a Helicopter Rocket, gourmet Sous Vide food cooker, Reverse Geocache treasure box, and many more fun DIY projects.

Synopsis:

The first book/magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself technology projects presents its 20th quarterly edition for people who like to tweak, disassemble, recreate, and invent cool new uses for technology. If you like to tweak, disassemble, recreate, and invent cool new uses for technology, you'll love MAKE, our project-based quarterly for the inquisitive do-it-yourselfer.

Get ready for the coolest issue of MAKE. Our special kids issue is filled with exciting and fun projects to make your weekend or science fair a blast. Hydrogen rockets, catapults, electric animals, chemical batteries, flying bird automatons, and more await you in the pages of MAKE: Volume 20!
