Hearst Communications, Inc.

The issue includes:
-An interactive earthquake map that downloads and displays the most recent seismic activity in the United States.
-An animated fly-through of a Red Bull air race.
-Exclusive video from Bonneville Speed Week.
-DIY plans for a home power-tool charging station, with 3D models and animated step-by-step instructions.

And this is just the start: We want your feedback and suggestions to help us prepare a monthly version of the magazine this fall, packed with even more content and more functionality. So enjoy reading, and make sure to send us your thoughts.
