NEED A COOL GADGET FOR SOMEONE?
I have to admit that most likely I will not be able to make anything in this magazine by myself. These projects are DIY projects on steroids. Find someone who can make this stuff, give him/her this magazine as a gift, and let him/her teach you or show you how.
This MAKE magazine even has DIY section for kids, and this volume has an introduction to SCRATCH where kids can make own games and animations. Of course I thought this was brand new until my nine year old daughter told me that she already knew about it months ago... And, my kids already downloaded the program back then.
My kids are light years ahead of me, when it comes to anything technical, and most likely your chilren are, too, but just in case they did not hear about this program yet, you can click the link below and get more information.
Looking for a cool gadget to give to someone?
In MAKE magazine's TOOLBOX section, they have great information about the coolest gadgets you can buy... such as the Epilog Zing 16 Laser Cutter, Fujifilm 3D Camera, and electric spin dryer.
