Trick or Treat with MAKE “virtually”!

While we’d love to have all our readers visit MAKE in person for Trick or Treating today, we realize it would be logistically challenging. So, if you’re a resident in the 3D virtual world Second Life (free download, runs on Mac/PC). You can visit us on MAKE:land here and get a goodie bag with some special treats from MAKE Magazine! Here are some screen shots of what we’re doing.Ween 001
Here’s me (on the right “Torrone Trumbo” is my name in world) and our Halloween bags that MAKE pal Alan made. There’s also a scarecrow guy too.

In the goodie bag you get a Cigar box guitar from MAKE 04 that plays real songs recorded from the actual project and a neat resistor calculator you talk to “1 red, 2, blue, etc..” then you say “calculate”.
