At first I thought that this particular book in the Evil Genius windows seven desk top series might be a bit too cheesy for my taste, but it does have some very interesting content. As with all of the evil genius books, you should not expect a deep amount of theory on the inner workings of the various electronic Spying Gadgets devices discussed, but there is enough theory and construction detail that you will learn much about how to modify and control devices and be able to produce some interesting projects. The Cheap book does spend quite a bit of space on the operational details of cameras including digital photo enhancement, hooking up a web cam, monday android phone hotels in singapore software device and long range digital photography. This book has the quality and attention to detail in the instructions, diagrams endless, and photographs that, quite frankly, have been missing from recent entries in the Evil Genius project books.
Since in many ways this book is aimed at teens that want to learn by being mischievous, if you are a parent you need to look through the book carefully to make sure nothing dangerous is going on before turning your teenager loose with it. Oddly enough, the chapter on laser gadgets was fairly innocuous. It mainly consisted of using laser pointers to control devices remotely. The chapter that worries me is the chapter on “Protection and Countermeasures”, since there are several projects that are variations of remote shocking devices using tasers. The most interesting chapter is the final one that is basically just one big project – building a spy robot – that is broken down into eleven smaller projects and builds on all of the material presented in the previous chapters. I especially recommend this book for adult blog blogger blogspot windows 7 hobbyists as well as parents and teachers who want some material on electronics that will likely hold a teenager’s attention and teach them something at the same time.
I’ve had this book for a couple of weeks and already had some questions. I went on the Atomic Zombie support spy gadgets forum and found the answers to my questions right away. It’s nice to know that the authors do provide support and answer your questions in a day or so. There are some others on the forum that also help. It’s a great community so if you buy this book make sure you also join the forum. There’s a great section on where to find parts used in the projects. What more could a person ask for!? A great book and great support right from the authors. I’m very impressed.
