LEGO Speaker System

0

Well, more accurately, it’s a single sub-woofer, not an entire system.  And, technically, it’s made of LEGO(R) compatible blocks.  But hey, let’s stop with the specifics, it’s a speaker, it’s DIY, and it’s gotten me on an urge to make my own – properly. This LEGO speaker was built by reddit user /u/FanOfSport.  It’s pretty … Continued

A Super Fast GoPro!

0

YouTube users Sam and Niko together with their team at Corridor Digital 3-D printed an arrow casing for a GoPro.  They then placed it into an air cannon and fired it. It went better than expected.  The initial launch was successful, but the follow up straight up resulted in a broken GoPro. Not to worry, … Continued

Fully Auto Snowball Machine Gun

Hopefully this coming winter will be better then last and something like a the above video.  Hopefully… The system itself is pretty simple, take a back mounted leaf blower attach some cut PVC with a plunger on it to a Y on the hose.  Then push some pre-made snowballs in and watch the carnage.  I … Continued

The Cylindrical Period

0

This isn’t your dad’s Periodic Table.  This isn’t even your meme’s.  This is something different. Makendo from Instructables has built this really neat cylindrical periodic table lamp.  It’s pretty ace if you ask me.  Unfortunately, it requires access to a 3-D printer, or some really insane skills with a Dremel/router/bandsaw. I like Hexagons, they are … Continued

Glow in the Dark Skiing

0

Ok, not glow in the dark in the traditional sense, Greed LED strips attached to the skis and poles of a professional skier.  Some drone footage of him carving up the mountain side make for a pretty cool video.  Being the actual skier though, that looks super dangerous, even with the guiding lights along some … Continued

Interesting views of Light

0

This is a pretty interesting experiment in art and light from Akinori Goto.  The short video below shows the process. It’s neat, sort of a modern version of the Zoetrope.  This wouldn’t be possible without 3-D printing.  Or at the very least, it would be insanely difficult to construct. This next video shows a much more … Continued

Marbles!

0

A Crap ton of Marbles. 11,000 according to the video description to be sure.  I’m sure there are more there, that large trey at the end seemed like the markers were past the 10,000 point before it flipped.  There weren’t that many different paths for the marbles to go though.  I think it would have … Continued

I do Nothing

0

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?

Make a Coil Train

0

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, … Continued
