Rubber Band Engineer

Rubber Band Engineer

Posted in BOOKS, MEDIA By

Pop quiz. Someone gives you a handful of rubber bands and paperclips. You: A) Think, “Yesss! I can finally tackle my desk organization project!” Or B) Use the rubber bands to shoot the paperclips across the room. This book is for B people.

In Rubber Band Engineer, color photos teach you how to make rockets, catapults, robot arms and other contraptions (including a rubber band helicopter) just using basic household stuff. With no prior know-how needed, you just have to round up some pencils, tape, paint stirrers and, of course, a good supply of rubber bands.
The book walks you through 19 designs from the simple to the extreme and was written by the same guy who came up with the Duct Tape Engineer book so we are guessing Lance Akiyama is a B person too. – Buy It
