Tom Heck is a great maker, and pulled off one of the best versions of the tethered balloon camera project from the first Geek Dad book that we’ve seen yet. WELL DONE SIR!
Today’s deals from PublishersMarketplace.com:
Editor of Wired.com’s GeekDad blog, Ken Denmead’s THE GEEK DAD’S GUIDE TO WEEKEND HACK-TIVITIES, the follow-up to the NYT bestseller Geek Dad, featuring more advanced do-it-yourself projects that encourage the geeky/hacker ethic that says understanding how something works is just as important as building it in the first place, to Lucia Watson at Gotham, in a good deal, by Jud Laghi at the Jud Laghi Agency and Meg Thompson at LJK Literary Management (NA).
Paul at Digital Misery decided to start tackling some Geek Dad projects, and this past weekend constructed a great version of the Slip ‘n Slide featured in the book with his family. He documented the whole process, step-by-step, and the outcome is pretty impressive!
We decided to start working through some of the projects and this weekend we picked the “Best Slip ‘n Slide Ever” project from the Geek Dad book. Basically it involves constructing a super home-made water slide that rivals anything you can find in the stores. I decided to document our build progress and include our successes and failures for the benefit of others.
Thanks, Paul! And great pictures. Happy slidin’.
