Each day until 2006 we’re bringing you a Maker from our new book Makers. Mikey Sklar, Brooklyn, New York. Shirt with 38 working fans. The fan shirt does not exactly qualify as business casual at Sklar’s job as vice president of a tony investment bank. “I sort of doubt there are many DIY people on Wall Street,” he says. A spool of wire he found in a dumpster connected all the 12-volt fans in parallel. “When I wear the shirt I’m often asked, ‘Do the fans spin?’ Well, of course they do! Who would walk around wearing a bunch of computer fans that don’t spin?” Makers: page 80. Link to photo. Sample PDF. Click here to get Makers the book before the holidays!

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.
