Make: Vol. 71 FIX OUR PLANET @make featuring CircuitPython powered projects from @geekmomprojects @digikey @adafruit

Make71

The latest Make: Vol 71 arrived today via the digital edition, here’s what is in this issue:

Climate change is an urgent threat but if we makers act now, we can still make a difference at both micro and macro levels. Our cover story, the kickoff to a series that will run through 2020, gives a big-picture look at what steps we can take to arrest climate change. Hint: It starts by electrifying everything!

Then, we look at some tasty tech with the story of a seriously impressive cheeseburger-making robot, recipes to cook delicious insects, and instructions to build a Raspberry Pi-powered cocktail dispenser for your next BBQ or robot-themed party.

Plus, 21 projects including:
 


  • Hack the Sonos-Ikea Symfonisk to make high-quality, networked bookshelf speakers on a budget
  • Build the world’s newest, simplest siege weapon, the Walking Arm Trebuchet
  • Fold and fly the Guinness World Record paper airplane
  • Make a jig for quick, easy, and beautiful box joints
  • Our best-yet DIY coffee bean roaster
  • And much more!

Flipped through and spotted these!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
