When we launched Make: Projects, our how-to wiki, a year and a half ago, we wanted to free all the great projects from the over 25 volumes of MAKE by offering them up on the site. That way, folks could check them out even if they didn’t have the issues of MAKE the projects came from, and our community could even suggest improvements to the projects and pose questions to the authors. The task at hand, though, was to enter the text and images into the system. Our rock star editorial intern, Craig Couden, stepped to the plate in style and to date has entered 114 MAKE projects. (Thanks Craig!) He recently posted a how-to called “Enter a Project on Make: Projects” to help walk folks through the process. How meta! If you’ve been waiting to share your project with the 10K MAKE community members on Make: Projects, wait no more. We want to see what you make!
This week we saw: The BeatBox by programmr, Arduino Survival Tin by Mortitd, Painting a One-Off QR Code on a Large Surface by Eric Hansen, Cheap Soldering Fan by William Anderson, Laser Harp (Frameless – Open Source) by Ruete, and Case for iPhone Lens Kit by Brad Kozak.
