MAKE is coming to Japan! It will have a lot of our content from the pages of MAKE, but will be specifically for Japan. We’ll be shipping at the end of August, here’s a bit about it and pre-order (Japanese) – 「モノ」を作り出すテクノロジーが現在のPCと同じように安価に手に入り、専門的な知識がなくても自分の作りたいものを容易に作ることができる時代が近づいています。オープンソースがソフトウェアの世界を変えたように、「工業の個人化」と「ハードウェアハッキング可能な機器の普及」によって変わるテクノロジーと私たちとの関係を伝えるのが『Make』です(英語版は季刊誌として発行されていますが、日本語版は英語版を再構成した書籍シリーズとして刊行されます)。その中心をなすのは実際に手を動かして楽しむ「プロジェクト」の紹介。安価な材料や中古製品を利用して、実用的な「モノ」を作る方法をステップバイステップで解説します。他に、先進的な取り組みを行っている研究者のインタビューや、ガレージで生み出されるユニークなガジェットを紹介するコラム、ティム・オライリーをはじめ充実した執筆陣のエッセイなど読み物記事も豊富に掲載しています。洗練された誌面デザインも特徴です。日本語版Vol.1のプロジェクトでは「凧にカメラをぶら下げて空中撮影を行う方法」「ビデオデッキを改造して猫の給餌機を作る方法」「水道管で作るカメラスタビライザー」などを取り上げます。Link & pre-order.

It’s available on Amazon too – Link.

    Quick translation.


    We are fast approaching an era where “things” can easily be made with no specialist knowledge, and the technology to do so cheaply available, like modern PCs. Just as open source has changed the world of software, the way that the personalisation of industry and the prevalence of machinary allowing hardware hacking will change technology and our relation to it is shown to us by “Make” (originally published as a quarterly publication, Japanese edition reproducing as a collectable book series). The series centres on introducing projects that you can try for yourself, giving step by step instructions how to make real “things” with just cheap materials and second hand goods. There are also interviews with researchers of cutting edge technology, a column introducing unique garage-built gadgets, and a vast stock of essays and articles by established writers such as Tim O’Reilly. It also features a new sophisticated design. The projects appearing in volume 1 (Japan edition) include how to make a camera-kite for aerial photography, how to adapt a VCR into an automatic cat feeder, how to make a video stabiliser from a water pipe and much much more.

    What would be the content differences between the US and Japanese versions of Make?
