Make: Technology on Your Time, Vol. 2

Book Description:

If you like to tweak, disassemble, re-create, and invent cool new uses for technology, you'll love MAKE our new quarterly publication for the inquisitive do-it-yourselfer.

Every issue is packed with projects to help you make the most of all the technology in your life. Everything from home entertainment systems, to laptops, to a host of PDAs is fair game. If there's a way to hack it, tweak it, bend it, or remix it, you will find out about it in MAKE.

This isn't another gadget magazine. MAKE focuses on cool things you can do to make technology work the way you want it to. The publication is inspired by our bestselling Hacks series books but with a twist. MAKE is a mook (rhymes with book). We've combined the excitement, unexpectedness, and visual appeal of a magazine with the permanence and in-depth instructiveness of a how-to book.

Whether you're a geek or hacker who delights in creating new uses for technology, or a Saturday afternoon tinkerer who loves to get his hands dirty, you'll keep every issue of MAKE on your bookshelf for years to come. This second issue, available in June 2005, includes 224 pages packed with tips and tricks, including:

How to build an HDTV recorder and beat the Broadcast Flag
Podcasting 101
How to ransform abandoned toys into environmental avengers
R2-D1Y extreme bot builders at home
The Atari2600 PC Project
How to build a light-seeking robot from an old mouse
A Maker Profile on Natalie Jeremijenko and lots more!
