The photo below


occupies the inside front cover of the latest issue (#19) of Make magazine, received here Saturday at bookofjoe World Headquarters™.


For those who find white on red difficult, the ad copy above reads, "Meet Vanessa Carpenter and Dzl Møbius, SparkFun customers and developers of the Critical Corset. Using a heart rate monitor, an Arduino, and a cleverly hidden air pump system [above and below],

Vanessa Carpenter offers a demonstration here.
