When we post new content on MAKE, we love hearing from our readers. Whether the comments be informative, insightful, or funny, here are our favorites from the past week, from Makezine, our Facebook page, Google+ Community, and Twitter.
In the article Tool Tales: The Pump Drill, Mike Wirth commented:
I was tempted to say “the first cordless drill”, but wait — it has a cord!
In the piece MAKE Asks: Bucket List Builds, chuck remarks:
The Radioisotopophone! A musical instrument consisting of individual Geiger counters with their probes in sealed containers containing various radioactive samples. Each probe is connected via a momentary push button arranged like keys. By carefully selecting your samples you can ‘tune’ the rate of the clicks to create a tunable static effect. Post apocalyptic rave!
I built one of these a while back. It’s a thing of beauty! I was worried that the VFD tube might burn out eventually so I ordered more on ebay. Now it’ll last forever! To do list: Set it up for GPS accuracy.
On the Make Twitter page we saw this:
In the article Machine Scrapes Oreos Clean of Cream, andytanguay responded with:
This is explains a lot of Portlandia.
It’s marvelously frivolous!
