For tinkerers and gadget freaks only

Make is a magazine for people who like to tinker and make cool stuff. I don’t mean a little home carpentry to make a chair or something like that, I mean things like a double-pendulum chaos generator Or how about a 3D Hilbert curve made out of plumbing supplies? How about some ideas of stuff you can make with golf balls? How to tie a bagel in a knot? A quad-copter drone? Amazing sculptures you can make with magnets?

Their motto:

Void your warranty, violate a user agreement, fry a circuit, blow a fuse, poke an eye out. Make: The risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things… Welcome to Make: Online!

Now that’s a group and a mindset I can appreciate!

Note that there’s a whole worldwide community behind this. There’s a yearly Makers Faire, a very active online community, one could really get into this. Looks like sheer, unadulterated fun. Go take a look, get hooked, make something!
