And you’ll get some quick tips on how to waterproof your drone to survive those unexpected water landings.
Plus, turn your smartphone into a microscope and capture amazing close-ups, build an acoustic guitar body out of stylish, durable carbon fiber, make a loudspeaker by vibrating an electric arc, and much more!
