Compressed Water Rocket

0

Often called a Pop bottle rocket, or something similar.  This is something else entirely.  This is a true multi-stage rocket powered by water and air that reaches up to 800 feet in altitude.  I particularly like the Red, White, and Blue “exhaust” I remember spending Saturday afternoons with the car compressor and a cork launching … Continued

Interactive Wooden Landscape

0

This is pretty neat, ETM: Exploration Through Motion is an interesting view of a once static asset.  A team of students from the Philadelphia University created this as their final project in Design 1.  Together, they took the Thomas Moran painting “Grand Canyon of the Colorado River”, and made a 3D laser cut map diorama … Continued

LEGO Food Truck

0

Imgur user xadrian built his own LEGO Food Truck.  I gotta say, the thing looks ace.  There’s plenty of attention to detail on the inside.  And actual flames on the side, not a baby decal.  Actual. Flames. Doesn’t this guy look dangerous?

I’m sure you’ve seen versions of this before, but never matter, I’m posting the above video because I thought it was fun to watch, and it’s short, and you can spare the time.  Trust me.

Light Up Heart

Remember this ?  Holy crap, that was 9 years ago?  Dang, time just seems to fly by.  Sadly, that heart is sitting on my shelf, not the desk of the person it was originally for, but in honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s the steps to make your own.

Impressive Wooden Marble Run

0

The most impressive part of this marble run is the fact that much of it is carved out of food.  Look at the organic shapes made.  It must have taken the guy ages to get all that detail in it.  It doesn’t hurt that marble runs are just fun to watch.

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

Forging A Spatula

0

I gotta say, while the practicality of this might not be as good as a flimsy one bought at Bed Bath and Beyond, you can rest assured that this hand forged spatula will never fail you.  It’s solid as a rock and will scrape burgers off the grill with ease.  Summer is still 6 months … 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

Tap Dancing Machine

0

Instructables user grandpapaning has built this pretty neat tap-dancing robot.  In actuality, it serves no purpose whatsoever.  In practice though, it’s a great way to teach people about the different areas of science – Electricity, electronics, mechanical design, turning electrical signals into physical forces.  In general, lots of stuff.  It’s all pretty neat really.  There’s … Continued
