Our own Maker Shed is having a sale on these excellent little capacitor robot charms handmade by ObviousFront from electronic components salvaged from discarded TVs, VCRs, and computers. Charming, indeed!
On a side note, ever wonder what exactly capacitors really do? There is no finer or cooler video online explaining the amazing capacitor than the one on our sister site, by the talented Collin Cunningham. Check it and learn!

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
