Bre and his friends make things.

Bre and his friends make things like space ballons. Sometimes they launch them and are unable to find them. Although the project has been abandoned the videos are very informative and show what amazing things a small team with a little money and off-the-self technology could do. Earlier this year a Canadian team had success with their space balloon and got some amazing aerial photos.

Make fake stakes? Rake lake snakes? Brake, flake.

Make is a new mook (magazine/book) from O'Reilly "devoted to digital projects, hardware hacks, and D.I.Y. inspiration.". The first issue should be shipped by February 28th and contains articles from Yak Shaving (not literally) to a $14 video camera stabilizer to a DIY gauss rifle and lots of stuff in between. A section called MakeShift requests readers to send in their solutions to a difficult scenario. It's quarterly, around 200 pages, apparently in 9x7 format and a yearly subscription is $35 while single issues are $15 (cover price). Each project has a page for commentary as well as RSS/Atom feeds and MAKE:audio is coming soon.
