Make Vol 8: the toys and games issue
Mark Frauenfelder:  Images Covers 08 The latest issue of MAKE is about to hit the stands, and this time the theme is toys and games. It includes a secret history of Myst, written by Myst co-creator Robyn Miller, a how-to on resurrecting a neglected pinball machine, making an asteroid mining colony on your kitchen table, creating robotic desk toys, building a rubber band ornithopter, making a toy gun controlled alarm clock, making a small batch coffee roaster, a special primer on mold making by Mythbuster's Adam Savage, and a great deal more.

Over on the Make blog, we have a podcast of a visit to the Lucky Ju Ju Pinball Arcadium in Alameda, California.
