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

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

Make a Coil Train

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

Trick Cutlery

0

This Instructable will show you how to make your own Gallium Spoon.  Unlike the trick spoons from the movies, this won’t form back into a spoon when you take it out of the water, or soup.  Also, I’d make sure you have lots of extra soup, because while gallium might be non-toxic, I don’t think … Continued

Chainsaw Blender

0

I’m not sure exactly why someone would do this, but this is America, you can do anything you want.  So Insturcables user mikeurus used his ingenuity to power a blender with a chain saw.  It’s a great conversation piece, but it’s not something you’ll keep on your counter at home, too much toxic exhaust to keep … Continued

Starry LED Lamp

0

Instructables user darbinorvar put together this really cool LED lamp that lights up like stars.  You can watch her build the whole thing in her YouTube tutorial of the process below if you want.  It’s better then going through all the photos individually and remember, I’m lazy. I really like the random way she marked … Continued

LED Log Lamp

0

Yes, a 3rd lamp post this month.  Sue me.  Instructable user Trask River Productions has put together a very comprehensive 34 step instructable on how to make this really good looking Log lamp shown above.  Honestly, it looks very well made, which makes sense considering the person/company.  I’m impressed with cutting out all the wood … Continued

3D Printed Marble Machine

0

Instructables user Jazzmyn has designed her own pieces for a marble machine.  They’re pretty basic parts, curves, switches, and Ys.  But they all connect together and in whatever way you want to combine them.  You can download the parts on Thingverse, but you will obviously need a 3D printer in order to build your own. … Continued

DIY Sugar Cube Maker

0

This is pretty neat, if a bit useless for the average person.  Instructables user MaskMarvl has put together a quick 7 step guide to making your own sugar cubes.  Granted, it needs to use brown sugar so that it can stick together, but I’m sure you could eventually figure out the recipe for making your … Continued

Controllable Bubbles

0

Part of the fun of bubbles is not knowing what you’re going to get.  Not knowing how many, or how large, or how long the bubbles are going to be.  They are unpredictable.  Gordon Kirkwood decided to take the unpredictability out of them.  He made what he calls the CNC Bubble Iris.  The entire thing … Continued
