But the very cool projects like the trebuchet, steadycam, custom lego minifigs, are all great design ideas.
This book does require a lot more components however (LOTS of legos, Arduino Circuit Board, RC Cars), so be prepared to spend more on these projects.
Great choice for Christmas - my son and sons-in-law really were happy with the set of these "Geek Dads" books!
The ideas are:
really expensive unless you already have the components,
require WAY too much empty space, like an empty room in the house (yeah right!),
WAY too much work
