Haywired: Pointless (Yet Awesome) Projects for the Electronically Inclined
I just received my copy of Haywired: Pointless (Yet Awesome) Projects for the Electronically Inclined
, which is a book of 13 electronics projects and techniques including a moving eyeball portrait, a super capacitor car, and wire wrapping and soldering how-tos. I previewed the book a few months ago, and think Haywired has a great mix of projects, and inspires you to learn how electronics, motors, and sensors work by giving you hands-on instructions to actually make them work. It is a great first book for the budding inventor or engineer. (As I state on the back of the book!)
If you do any of these projects, please post an Instructable with your take!
Update: Mike Rigsby has posted an Instructable from the book:Flashlight Without Batteries
