Make: magazine is back in action and back to our original size for Volume 70, Oct/Nov 2019! The latest issue’s cover project is a maker’s take on a Boston Dynamics-style quadrupedal walking robot that can be built yourself. Also is a build of an adorable unicorn-shaped dispenser that spits soap on command. And to celebrate Make:’s return, there is a build of a custom dancing version of Make’s Makey mascot.
Issue 70 features 28 projects including:
• Teeny-tiny personal motorboat
• Standup paddle board
• Bird-identifying computer-vision birdhouse
• Backyard bicycle pump track
• And much more!
It appears likely there will be physical copies in stores. Caleb Kraft posts on Twitter copies should be at US booksellers around November 15th.
Adafruit gear appears to be used in four projects:

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
