Make: Technology on Your Time Volume 26

Book description

MAKE Volume 26: Karts & WheelsGarage go-kart building is a time-honored hobby for do-it-yourselfers, and we'll show you how to build wheeled wonders that’ll have you and the kids racing around the neighborhood in DIY style. Build a longboard skateboard by bending plywood. Build a crazy go-kart driven by a pair of battery-powered drills. Put a mini gasoline engine on a bicycle. And construct an amazing wind-powered cart that can outrun a tailwind. Plus you’ll learn how to build the winning vehicle from our online Karts and Wheels contest!

In addition to karts, you’ll find plenty of other projects that only MAKE could give you:

  • A flaming tube that keeps time to music and makes sounds waves visible — in fire
  • An aquarium tank to grow your own Spirulina algae superfood
  • An electronic music looper that creates cool sounds and lets you build wild rhythm loops
