I’m traveling! Again! Can you believe it? I can’t. I wish I were home though. Stay tuned for another short week of posts.
For a period of 15 years starting in 1948 Lawrence Wahlstrom, the retired clock maker and by all means armature engineer, added many gears to a old WW2 bomb sight. The actual number of gears is unknown, he stopped counting, or lost count, or both. It’s over 700 though.
What do all these gears do?
This KickStarter is fully funded and helps out a good cause. Anew Nature helps to employ “at risk” men, making and selling furniture. They started a Kickstarter to enable them to hire some of these men to produce the furniture that they are going to sell.
What caught my attention was the use of the Interactive LED panels. The furniture they make has an interesting assortment of natural and modern. It’s strange, but everything looks nice, I’d buy some if I wasn’t into building it all myself.
There’s not much else to say here. Welcome to the greatest musical video I have ever seen. Well, the first 1/3 anyway, with Joyful Joyful, which reminds me of Christmas time, and, more specifically, Die Hard.
Thanks to the Hydraulic Press Channel, People with access to high power dangerous equipment have an entirely new revenue stream thanks to YouTube videos. That’s just the premise of the WaterJet Channel, they have a high power water jet that they use to cut things in half.
Just like the HPC, they seem to know a lot about their piece of equipment, but not a lot about what they’re cutting. However, unlike the HPC, they don’t have that sick accent.
Watch them cut apart an old DSLR, look at all the empty space in it.
I don’t have all of my photos yet, Chicago => New York is a very long drive, especially alone. So instead, you can view this one from Instagram from last week. Enjoy.
No doubt about it, electric trains are cool. They are expensive though. And you could get called “a nerd.” But really, those people are just not cool, so there.
Follow the simple 4 step instructable to make “The Simpliest Electric Train“. Now, watch the video of it in action. It’s quite cool. Except the jumps, that part sucks, don’t build this expecting to get some sick jumps. You’ll be dissapointed.
If your kid, or brother, or friend wants a Train for Christmas. A. Get them one, (if they’ve been a good child that is). B) If they like trains, then they’re probably interested in science. Why not spend $20 and make this with them. It will be cool and get them interested in science.
Marketing people never stop amazing you do they. The those from Coca-Cola Israel released a short lived marketing gimmick camera that attaches to the bottom of a standard Coca-Cola bottle. It takes a photo whenever it detects a change in tilt of at least 70°. That photo is a selfie. It’s interesting, but as I said, unnecessary.
Common American folklore states that Thanksgiving was when the Indians helped the pilgrims from the Mayflower survive the winter. This is mostly true, however, the real history can be traced back to the colonists from Roanoke. They are the reason why this feast is celebrated, though not for what you would think. Read on, for a gripping conclusion to last month’s AHT!
