Make: Volume 61 features one of our absolute favorite makers, Naomi Wu, better known online as @RealSexyCyborg! We are so thrilled she’s getting this exposure that we wanted everyone to have a copy of the magazine! Considering that Naomi is the creator of China’s first certified Open Source Hardware Project, this editorial has been a long time coming!
This volume has an excellent cover story on Naomi and other inspiring makers based in Shenzhen, including Vicky Xie, Shirley Feng, Lin Jie (a.k.a. 00), Lit Liao, and Carrie Leung. Additional featured articles cover Fighting Disasters, VR Reality Check, and drones. Fun projects listed are a rainbox lightbox, “Text a Treat” SMS pet treat dispenser, robot-ready radar, and more!

It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino.

It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
