Tonight on ASK AN ENGINEER, we’ll be looking at the new HACKADAY “OMNIBUS” book/comic/article set! Stop in! We’ll be giving one away at the end of the show too!

17 articles.
Art worthy of a graphic novel.
The best content to please the most discerning hackers/designers/engineers.
Preorder using coupon OMNIBUS2014 to get $5 off [expires 8 February 2015, limit 500 uses].

We are proud to announce pre-orders for Hackaday’s first ever print edition. The 2014 Hackaday Omnibus is eighty full-color pages containing long-form original content from 2014.

The articles cover some of the high points in current events from the year like communicating with long-absent space probes and looking at the issue of Net Neutrality. The collection tells the story of hardware hacking old and new with recollections of developing PCs in the United States and behind the Iron Curtain in the 1980’s, roadmaps for repairing vintage watches and acquiring vintage bench hardware, and even covers a process used for manufacturing vacuum tubes at home.

A huge boon to Hacakaday’s content was the addition of original art to accompany our articles. This is thanks in large part to [Joe Kim] whose illustrations paint the covers of the Omnibus and bring life to the narratives inside. We know you’ll agree that the Omnibus had to be made. These stories, these topics, and this art must be permanent. The combination of the content, art, and layout makes this something you want lying around, be it on the coffee table, the workbench, at the hackerspace, or to liven up the offerings found in your Dentist’s waiting area.
