Make Magazine came out with a list of the top ten projects of 2010 and The Useless Machine was number 3.
What I find interesting about the list is that only 3 projects are for “practical” purposes, the rest are for amusement or edification. I guess it’s true: man cannot live on bread alone…
The World Maker Faire finished up this weekend in New York and I really wish I could have been there.
I’ll just have to make due looking at some pics taken at Make Magazine’s booth of the Useless Machine wowing the masses, and a thank-you comment on the instructable from an attendee of the faire.
WooHoo, I be a real author, now! Check it out: makezine.com/23/uselessmachine/ . I can’t wait to get my print copy.
Please note, if you don’t have a subscription to Make you’ll only be able to view limited content. The full build instructions however, are available for all and can be found here
I had mentioned earlier that the Useless Machine will be featured in the upcoming Volume 23 of Make Magazine. In anticipation of this momentous (for me, anyways) event I’ve been checking out Make Magazine’s digital counterpart MakeZine.
MakeZine is a fantastic site. In addition to the great articles from the printed magazine, there is a daily blog, a projects section, how-to videos, a community forum, and a spin-off site: The Maker’s Shed (an on-line store selling cool kits). I highly recommend that you check it out, if you haven’t already.
Even though the site is new it already has lots of cool projects, and is growing. If you are a techno-geek/maker like myself, or if you would just like to learn how to make really cool things, then this site’s for you!
