About PopSci...

I have picked up a copy of PopSci before, but at an age when I wouldn't be able to understand anything in it. So I don't remember much. After entering the contest, I did some research about PopSci. It looks cool, and if i don't have a winning project, I will likely pick up an issue next grocery trip. I was just wondering, what can I expect in an issue of PopSci and what (if you subscribe) are your favourite articles? -Evan

i personally love the How 2.0 sections. also, the quick blurbs about upcoming technology (like three years ago they were talking about the F18 hornet, TV has only been showing it for a few months). so yeah, defintately subscribe. glad you like it
I agree, the how 2.0 is really fun to read. I also like when they have like "kitchen of the future" where it shows a projector to show recipes and such.
yeah and the fully automatic bathrooms....what will they think of next.hah
haven't had the resources to do most of the How 2.0 projects, but the Gray Matter section is always interesting, and I used it in a science assignment.
thats cool. yeah, all you popular science people out there listening...WE ARENT YOU AND DONT HAVE THE ACCESS YOU GUYS DO!!!!. make some how2.0's that a normal person can actually perform without serious risk or thousands of dollars. thanks

I always love the What's New feature. It has little blurbs about upcoming technology items that never cease to be very fun and interesting to read about. esecially when you see it in the magazine and a few months later you see it on a store and, like imanalchemist said, already knowing tons about it while your friends just gawk. I also love the how 2.0 articles (what instructable member wouldn't?) One thing the writers are particularly good at is making complex technology understandable without dumbing it down, which is wonderful and makes the magazine very engaging and readable.
I have been a reader since 2001 and Love reading about viable new technology and things I would never know about otherwise, I am constantly explaning to my friends that I am not astounded by the things they see because I already saw them in Pop Sci months ago (Honda Element, Stanley Fubar, et al.)

is there alot of reader input?
PopSci evy-wevy7 years ago
Yeah, we can't get enough reader input! That's been one of the most exciting parts about our nascent group here on Instructables, seeing what like-minded DIYers are interested in, both in building themselves and in response to our weekly projects here. We're also excited to build up our fresh new How 2.0 Blog to include as much reader input as possible.
