The Big Book of Hacks
by Popular Science
I wanted to do about 90% of the projects in this book. Sadly, only about 30% of them fall within my current skill level. Even if you don’t know which end of the screwdriver to hold, this is an engaging and interesting book. The photographs are clear and informative, the instructions mostly comprehensible to me, the list of resources exhaustive. Who doesn’t want custom-fit earbuds? Or a cardboard hammock? Or a foot-operated mouse, for Pete’s sake. So much cool stuff, just waiting for you to make it.
