The popular evil genius format provides hobbyists with a fun and inexpensive way to learn Mechatronics (the merger of electronics and mechanics) via 25 complete projects.
  • Projects include: mechanical race car, combat robot, ionic motor, electromagnet, robotic arm, light beam remote control, and more
  • Includes "parts lists" and "tool bin" for each project
  • Covers all the preparation needed to begin building, such as "how to solder," "how to recognize components and diagrams, "how to read a schematic," etc.
  • Newton Braga is one of the most famous electronics authors in the world. An educator and writer in computer science and related technologies, he has written over 90 books and contributed more than 2000 articles to magazines in Brazil, Spain, the Untied States, Portugal, Japan, Argentina, and other countries. He name is internationally ...
