Announcing Make: Volume 71 with Exciting New Changes!

October 2, 2019

I’m thrilled to let you know the next issue is headed soon to mailboxes and newsstands! 

When you receive it, you’ll find some exciting new elements. 

First, you’ll notice the size of the magazine — we’ve gone back to the original journal format that helped us become an instant hit from our launch in 2005. In 2013, we changed to a full-size print magazine. In the time since then, many readers expressed their wishes for us to return to the original size, and now we are! Starting with this upcoming issue, we’ll be putting our content in that beloved, bookshelf-friendly package. 

We’ll also return to our original quarterly format, putting more pages in each issue and even more curated attention into every story and profile. We’re committed to providing excellent content for our readers and subscribers. 

Moving forward, new issues of Make: will still feature inspiring DIY projects and how-tos, but we’ll be bringing new voices, more features of motivating makers, and more guides to resources and locales that can serve your making needs. We’re excited and think you will love it too.

Volume 70 highlights:

  • Do Community Science with Public Lab (including a special DIY Spectrometer tear-out)
  • DIY Robocars — Affordable, autonomous racers that can (finally?) beat human drivers
  • Outdoor projects for all: Build a Tiny Motorboat; Backyard Pump Track; Aluminum Camping Whistle, and more
  • Robotics workshop: Make Your Own Quadruped Kitten (move over, Big Dog!); Print and Program a Dancing Makey; 
  • Skill Builders: Cardboard Attachment Techniques; 3D Printing Huge Objects
  • Plus Made on Earth, Toolbox, and the other inspiration you look for from Make:

Thanks again. Please let me know what you like, what you make, and what you want to see more of.
