Michigan inventors – Makers book

Article about some Makers from the Makers book! – “Tonight, the Simon Cowell-produced “American Inventor” TV show will do for backyard tinkerers what “American Idol” did for people who sing in the shower. Thousands of inventors from around the nation will compete for $1 million. But to find real innovation, you don’t have to travel to Hollywood, or even watch the show.”Link.

Meet The Makers…Now on the heels of MAKE’s wildly popular inaugural issues, O’Reilly introduces Makers, a beautiful hardbound book celebrating DIY inspiration and the people behind the projects. Makers introduces you to a brigade of citizen engineers making their own cameras, clocks, airplanes, submarines, musical instruments, weapons, medical equipment, energy- saving devices, robots, and houses. They create their own tools to explore the outer atmosphere, the deep sea, and the behavior of tiny flies in their backyard. Sample PDF. Click here to get Makers the book.
