May 2014 issue highlights:

• Why We Should Build Stuff — We sat down with actor and comedian Nick Offerman, who also happens to be pretty handy with tools. Offerman explains his connection to woodworking, and building things by hand.

• The Eighth Annual Invention Awards—This year we honor projects as small as a shoe sole and as large as a personal airplane. No matter the size, these inventions have the power to change lives.

• The Master Code — Uploading your brain seems like science fiction. But a neuroscientist named Randal Koene plans to do just that.

• The Life Cycle of Ideas — Scientific theories and ideas are shared and cited and accepted and disproved. We follow the changes in paper references through history.

• Age of the Asteroid — Space rocks are getting dangerously close to home, and with frightening regularity, they zoom past. Some scientists are plotting ways to deflect them, but others want to lasso and bring them closer.

• Now — An agile personal drone, the future of wireless charging, the first lawn mower that sits upright, and more!

• Next — The world’s largest solar farm, the technology and science behind the Kentucky Derby, why humans aren’t so highly evolved, and more!

• Manual — Nick Offerman’s handmade canoe, how to build a Nerf sentry gun, the tiny satellites leading the new space race, and more!

Customer Reviews

Let's take advantage of our long term costumers

I find it reprehensible to charge faithful customers more money when you do not have the paper cost, mailing costs, and all the additional expenses of handling tons of magazines.
When the ads provide a lot of income one would think they would find beneficial to have the publication travel with the customer on his iPad.


This app take a lot of space ! !!!
Why don't you make an option to delete some of the magazine instead of keeping them
I have to delete the whole app to be able to release the data -cache

Pretty bad

This and Popular Science are pretty awful. The y're hard to use and ready, gimmicky, layout and huge downloads that will quickly fill up your device. On top of that canceling the subscription is nearly impossible. They keep billing you every year.
