makercamp 400 Maker Camp: Day 3
Maker Camp rolls out its third day of projects and makers devoted to two-wheeled fun and bike hacks at 11am PST. The highlight of the live broadcast on Google+ will be an interview with Ismael Plasencia from The Crucible, the world’s coolest metal shop and teaching space in Oakland, Calif. Ismael will be showing off some cool projects and sparks may fly so wear your safety glasses.

A student at one of The Crucible’s classes grinds away on a bike frame.

The project of the day is a bike tail pipe that will make a quiet bike roar like it’s motor powered. The project is based on the old baseball-card-in-the-spokes trick, but we’re going to use an old credit card because it’s louder. But not loud enough! That’s why we’ll use an aluminum bottle to fashion the tail pipe — it acts as a kind of megaphone for the credit card.
