Gift Singularity: The Event Horizon

Gift Singularity: The Event Horizon

We hope you enjoyed our gift guide coverage this year and our Kit-A-Day Giveaway. We had some 20,000 giveaway comments/entries all total and well over 3000 social media reposts. We gave away 28 days worth of kits, including five MakerBots! Congrats to all of the winners.

Here are our other gift guides and series:

And then we come to the Gift Singularity, a countdown of gift-worthy projects leading up to… well… NOW, a few hours before Christmas. If you are STILL missing a gift for a special someone, don’t fret. Print out this card [3.9MB PDF] on some nice paper, fold, and tell your recipient you’re getting them a subscription to MAKE or a Maker Shed Gift Certificate. Why not include a PDF of the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide so they can browse through and see items they can get from the Shed (indicated throughout the book by a Shed icon). You can also send them a free Maker Shed Catalog PDF.

    Well thanks for having the contest. Looks like I didn’t win this year but some people got some great prizes. (Least I hope it wasn’t inability to contact me I signed up for disqus halfway through) Congratulations to everyone who won and I look forward to your video wednesday. Meanwhile back to trying to figure out this dang microcontrollers.
