Steampunk Daily: Technology: DIY Sonic Screwdriver
Last Halloween my oldest son Colin dressed up as the Doctor from Doctor Who and I # together a Screwdriver for him from bits of junk I scrounged up in the garage. Upon seeing the Sonic Screwdriver my youngest son Sam decided he had to have one. Sam however declared that his screwdriver needed to work- he wanted more than just a cool looking prop. He wanted a functional Sonic Screwdriver. The neat thing about this project is you can easily tailor it to include all different kids of sensors to learn about the world around you. Inexpensive accelerometers, altitude sensors, barometric pressure sensors, GPS sensors, etc. are all readily available and you can make a custom Sonic Screwdriver to house whatever sensors you want.
