Description

This book features a series of fun electronics projects that range from easy to more difficult, but none require too complex or expensive components. Many of the components are reusable from project to project. Step-by-step instructions and clear illustrations guide the reader as they create racing machines, ‘robots’, LED ‘throwies’, alongside simple, core electronics skills such as creating a circuit and practising on a breadboard. This is a hands-on book aimed at teaching accessible projects, perfect for firing up children’s imagination and building their skills.

The author

Mike Warren is a designer and inventor based in San Francisco. His work combines electronics, woodworking, and reuse. His open-source work is carefully documented to inspire and encourage others to remix his projects and share the results. Warren won The New York Times Innovation Whiteboard in 2012 for his umbrella light (an illumination device retrofitted into the shaft of an umbrella to indicate location to others in the dark) and was the favorite selected by James Dyson. Warren is also the author of a maker book for young adults, 23 Things to Do Before You are 11 1/2, and served as the technical editor for the young adult fiction Dewey Mac, Kid Detective. His work has been featured in Popular Science, The New York Times, Wired, BoingBoing, Vsauce, and elsewhere. He is currently a designer for Instructables and Autodesk, where he shares DIY tutorials.
