I've just started building projects using Arduino hardware and software combined with a little bit of robotics. I know enough electronics, software, and woodworking for those projects, but had a real gap in mechanical design. This book filled that gap perfectly, providing all the theory I needed, the names of all the parts I wanted, plus loads of pointers to where to buy those parts.The book also provides just a few wonderful projects showing what you can build with your new-found knowledge.
Note this is not a robotics book. Instead, it's about more conventional (and useful) machines involving parts such as motors, gears, belts, and linkages.
I'm one of those people who are interested in doing many things but always had other things that took up my time. Business management, biology, and cancer detection paid the bills and was almost all I could handle.
I'm retired now and too old to take on college level engineering courses, and I'm more interested in my photography hobby anyway.
The reason I purchased this book is because all my life I've had a special invention circulating around in my brain. Problem was that each test unit I built broke as soon as I turned on the power. Still, maybe my brainstorm invention can actually be made. This book, Making Things Move, is more in line with what I can handle. Even if it doesn't help me make my brainstorm it's sure to provide fun activities.
This book is very unique in content and I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to begin building robotic, artistic, or any type of mechanical devices (including automata projects). The concepts are explained well and several examples are provided to help get people started. It's my opinion the information in this book is almost meaningless without experience. When people are engaged in creating the projects in the book they will build incredibly useful experience when they later design and create their own projects.
A few of the sample projects had various bits of information missing or perhaps unclear, however, most anyone with a little experience performing these projects will figure out how to "connect the dots" fairly easily (which could actually make the sample projects even more rewarding by self-discovery). I would probably have placed a little more information about obtaining a good quality set of essential tools and the value of collecting an inventory of popular materials. I would also let the reader know that no matter how much someone reads about how to play a violin, learning doesn't begin without actually picking up the instrument and playing it. Like obtaining any useful skill, nobody will really learn valuable lessons from this book simply by reading it - the return on investment comes when performing the sample exercises. Don't let my micro-picky comments deter you - overall, it's really a great book and provides essential information for many learners.
I highly recommend this book not only as a starting guide for anyone who would like to learn more about how to make their own device with moving parts &/or electronically controlled items, but also the book serves as a wonderful resource for lots of information which could be useful years down the road. The examples range from very good to excellent and the organization of concepts and delivery of information is logical. Probably my favorite part of this book is the way the author provides information with clear and concise terminology - she gives you enough to explain what's going on so you can understand and begin DOING something quickly. More information on these topics, if needed, is always available from other sources. And that's the real beauty of this book - it gives the reader enough explanatory information to make sense followed with well structured opportunities to DO many things. That's the best way to learn, by doing.
