This House is Ace

0

Look at this nice unassuming cardboard house.  It looks like something a middle schooler would build for an art project doesn’t it?  Well, hopefully it is, because when you turn it around, you’ll notice that the inside of this house is actually a fully functional PC. It’s neat, but it looks like a pretty crappy … Continued

Rocket Engine Underwater

0

When I was a kid I loved launching model rockets.  I spent many hours building them from kits, and wrapping paper tubes, and newspaper, and one even from a cardboard tube that a rug was in.  That was a fun one, we put an “F” type engine in it, there was so much black smoke … Continued

Pure Photos

0

Photographer Robin de Puy teamed up with Spa, and spent 6 months developing the technique to take photographs through a drop of water.  It’s quite something to be honest, though it’s wildly impractical.  In order to get it working, they had to use a Teflon coated glass plate, an electrical current, and mirrors.  It’s all … Continued

Here are two time-lapses of the night sky from two very different perspectives.   The first one is the standard watch the stars pass by overhead in a circle around the viewer.  It’s pretty nice, Aryeh Nirenberg created it by leaving his camera on all night on Assateague Island in Maryland. I do enjoy watching … Continued

Wood burning

This is a pretty neat way to make wood burning by painting, instead of using the difficult to use tips on a traditional wood burning iron. {reddit}

Busy Busy Busy

I’ve been a busy busy busy guy lately.  Working on some wood working project that you will definitely get to see in the next few weeks.  Working on some video games.  Working on some personal things.  And generally, just frekin working. So that’s why there’s a lack of posts lately.  Don’t worry, I’m still around, … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: 42nd Street

0

While 42nd Street doesn’t exactly cut Manhattan in half, it was the proverbial divide of the city.  Those in the north who were closer to the mainland were convinced that the government’s story was correct, there was nothing to fear, this was only a temporary glitch on the way towards a better world tomorrow.  As you … Continued

Shoelaces

Who would have thought that tying your shoes would be this interesting to watch, or more importantly, that there would be a different way to do it instead of the same way I’ve been doing it for 30ish years.
