Mags, Websites, Fairs Tap Tech DIY Boom @ Washington Post

Great article in the Washington post about MAKE, MAKE NYC and more! –

What do you do when you’ve bolted a computer onto a remote-controlled car, hooked it up with Internet access, a wireless router and a camera but you don’t have anyone to show it off to?

Just ask Mike Davis. He brought his mobile Internet access point to a meeting with other readers of Make magazine, a how-to publication for people who just love to tinker with stuff.

The 28-year-old systems engineer from Brooklyn found people who built homemade LCD displays, a clock that makes you solve a math problem before setting the alarm and a class in mastering pipe mechanics _ something with many uses beyond just making a potato cannon.

    If he posts anything up about it, it will probably show up here…

    It’s basically a mobile AP.

    And it’s a work in progress.
