Maker Shed weekly wrap-up

Maker Shed weekly wrap-up

We added a lot of new products, and a few new bundles, to the Maker Shed this week, and more are on the way. Let us know if there are any particular kits you would like to see us build, or if you have any questions about other products in the Maker Shed. Thanks!


It’s been a while since we had all of our Gakken kits in stock. They sell out fast, and it takes some time to get them shipped from Japan. In this last shipment we added a few new kits. Check out the Poulsen’s wire recorder kit, 4-Bit Microcomputer, and the Gennai Hiraga’s Spark Generator. In the following weeks we will be posting videos how-to’s of all these new kits.

Also, we added some new bundles that include FREE FedEx shipping. There is the Creepy Craft bundle, and the 5 DVD FX Master Bundle. Both are perfect for getting you into the Halloween spirit. Don’t forget to use promo code “SAMHAIN” at checkout and receive FREE 3 day FedEx on our new Bundles (contiguous US only).

And let’s not forget about our favorite little micro controller, the Arduino. We added an SD card shield to our product line. This cool little shield allows you to store massive amounts of data with your Arduino.

All these kits are a lot of fun, but lets not forget about defending them from a siege of office coworkers. If pillaging is a problem at work, then Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction just may be for you. Toy designer John Austin provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for building 35 devices include catapults, slingshots, minibombs, darts, and combustion shooters.

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
