A lot of people, including myself, will be watching the Super Bowl this Sunday. One thing that bugs me are all the long commercial breaks. Although it seems a lot of people like the commercials better than the actual game! This year I am going to try something different. I am going push the salsa and chips aside and set up my living room table for a build. I am going to be making the Stirling Engine kit by Gakken during those long commercial breaks. I’ll let you know how it goes. Hopefully I can fire it up by the time the game is over.

I am always amazed at the quality of any of the Gakken kits, and the Stirling engine kit is no exception. I can’t wait to get started making this one.

Are you making anything this weekend, or just watching the game? Leave us a note in the comments, Thanks!

    Looks like a fun kit. But the price???? Wow!! It’s cheaper to follow Makes instructions Two Can Stirling http://makezine.com/07/stirlingengine/ and “make” your own.

    Well you are right. I am among those who love the long commercial breaks than the super bowl. This idea to use the long break to make something that is wonderful is amazing. I would like to follow your path by making most of the breaks. http://www.powernetshop.at/
