We’re giving away amazing kits from our new Make: Ultimate Kit Guide EVERY DAY — thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, including MakerBots!
To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away at least one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season.
Today’s giveaway item is for not one but two Drawdio Fun Packs (a $49.98 value.) We’re giving them away as a pair so you can enjoy them with a friend or with your kids. Here’s a snippet of the review from the issue:
Drawdio is an electronic pencil that lets you make music while you draw. It’s a great project for beginners: an easy kit with instant gratification. Invented by Jay Silver, it’s a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create sounds. The result is a fun toy that lets you draw “musical instruments” on any piece of paper.

This would be a fun project to do with my boys.
“Sounds” like fun
I actually almost bought this the other day. But then I realized it would make a horrible Christmas present for my nephew who is too young to understand it. And an even worse present for his parents. Still, it would be fun.

This would be a fun gift for my little brother this christmas :)
This could be fun for a project at the library I work at.
Drawdio seems like a neat little toy. I kind of always overlooked it… for some reason I thought you -had- to etch over your graphite pencil lines (and so I thought you had to keep scratching paper with it). I just googled an excellent video for it, and it’s really a theramin, working on a lot of different surfaces/contacts. Think I’ll be building one of these even if I don’t win…
My kids would like this.

Maker Shed is the new santa claus
This would be perfect for my nephew!
I’ll give this to my nieces if I win!
I think with the way I draw I should be banned from anything drawing-related which requires me to express artful whimsy. Think of it as a kindness to my fellow man.
