The Hackaday Omnibus – Vol. 02 is 128 full-color pages containing long-form original content from Hackaday in 2015.
The articles cover some of the high points from the year such as an in depth look at the mysterious Antikythera Mechanism and the hardware behind a bomb design used to train FBI agents.
Each story is accompanied by original illustrations in beautiful full color. The combination of the content, art, and layout makes this something every maker would want lying around – be it on the coffee table, the workbench, or at the hackerspace.
