DIY CNC

0

  Technically this is a computer numerical controlled machine, though it’s not the same thing that most people think of when they hear CNC Machine.  It looks pretty easy to build.  There’s not much to it.  Anyone remotely interested in computers has a plethora of old unused optical drives that they can re-purpose.  I’m not … Continued

JPEG -> Animated GIF

0

Using the magic of technology, the folks over at Plotagraph Pro has come up with a way to turn basic flat JPEG images into animated GIFs.  Sort of like a cinemagraph, instead of needing to take a video though, or use layers in Photoshop, the software will use algorithms to animate the existing data in … Continued

This wont run Crysis

Unfortunately, this LEGO Ideas project doesn’t look like it’ll gather enough votes to become a reality.  It’s just too geeky I think.  300 pieces seems like quite alot for the simplicity of the design, although, I guess most of those pieces are the small 1×1 circles and connector pieces for the Technic beams.  That being … Continued

Wooden Aluminum Keyboard

0

reddit user doublecloverleaf has machined and milled his own beautiful computer keyboard from aluminum and fresh (freshly dried anyway), walnut wood.  The walnut came from a tree that his neighbors had cut down last year.  He had it milled and then dried for a year so don’t worry, it shouldn’t warp or check or crack. … Continued

Windows 95 on Nintendo DS

0

For some reason, GBA Temp user shutterbug2000 decided to try and get Windows 95 up and running on a Nintendo DS.  He succeed.  But I’m not entirely sure what the purpose of it is. It doesn’t really do much yet, and the whole setup seems awkward.  There’s no real way to control the thing yet from … Continued

Computer Control Panel

Have you ever wanted a borderline useless master control panel for your computer?  You know, something that looks like the controls from Star Trek, or Star Wars.  Well, reddit user smashcuts has built his own.  Why, because he wanted to, that’s why. If you ever wanted to hang something very heavy that served almost no … Continued

Bernie Rohde makes clocks.  That’s nothing special to be honest, in the last hundred years or so clock making has gone from being a master level skill, to something overlooked and simple.  Sure, the science of time keeping has advanced greatly over the years, they even decided to add a leap second to the day … Continued

Very Custom PC Case

0

People are ingenious, we will do crazy things, all because we can.  Well, this imgur album shows the process of taking a stuffed Beaver, hollowing out the inside, and installing a motherboard.  It’s all come to light from reddit user KingsBlade, but this looks like a very old album (3 years according to imgur), and … Continued

I have a thing for desks.  I built my own oversized one (now that I think of it, I don’t think I ever posted that DIY, I should get on that), and I’ve wanted to make another one  of a different theme for some time now.  Well, reddit user SirLanceOlong decided to make his own … Continued
