I really enjoyed reading this. It was put together and the articles were certainly inspiring, however it also made me realise how much cheaper the material for these projects is in the US, especially if you have to import them :-(

I bought this thinking it was a modern day version of Practical Mechanics i.e. lots of 'how to' and 'how things work' but felt a bit disappointed with the content. It seems to be weirdly pitched at the group somewhere between child, idiot child and child genius with a few articles that could be aimed at adults!? For example, there is the cover story about putting a home made satellite into low orbit (probably not into an actual orbit) for a mere $8000 (how much!) and by comparison, the 'build your own satellite' article which is basically a digital camera tied to a couple of tethered helium filled balloons. How lame is that! Also you are shown how to make your own wonky shaped buttons from an old stick. Does anyone still sew buttons back on anymore and how much do they actually cost anyway? Etc, etc.

I think this would make a great teachers' resource for project ideas in school or a subscription for a child protege but is really of only passing interest to adults. I was going to subscribe but I don't think I will. Might be good to pass the time at the dentist.
