Thomas A. Edison...there are great quotes in this book.
There are so many great things to make in this book, it's impossible to know what to leave out! There is a model of pneumatic muscles modeled on a prototype of an exoskeleton project in a lab. It uses tubes of air to power the muscles. Use everyday objects to invent things. Learn through play is their motto. ( authors Griffith and Dragotta)
