Drill Kart – MAKE interns

In a visit to MAKE HQ in Sebastopol, CA, Becky gets a tour of the cordless drill-powered go-kart designed by Gever Tulley. Watch MAKE interns Nick Raymond and Eric Chu pull some sweet spin moves. It’s really fun to drive!

Flame Tube – Bill Gurstelle

See sound in fire! The flame tube project (aka Rubens’ tube) uses a speaker at one end to influence the row of small propane jets along the tube, showing the waveforms of the audio. We’ll have the project set up on the roof and Bill Gurstelle will join us via Skype.
