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

Modern Organs

Wendell Kapustiak built a modern Pipe Organ.  Modern in the sense that naturally, it’s computer controlled.  The air is supplied by a modified server cooling fan. The keys are played by an Arduino.  And the songs are chosen by a web interfaced run on a Rasberry Pi. It is pretty neat, I will give him … Continued

Dissolved

The Beauty of Science is just what they say, showing some of the awesome things that you can produce with Science.  The above video is really just simplicity.  If you place different colored m&ms into a petri dish of water, they will slowly dissolve.  That’s nothing new.  What is new and interesting is the designs … 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

Slow Motion Interrupter

That’s pretty neat and all, but you have to remember that the propeller they’re spinning on the ground is going way too slow to actually cause any lift in an airplane.  It’s a cool video, but it doesn’t really show you how it works. That’s what the short video below does: Pretty simple system isn’t … Continued

I do Nothing

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?

Trick Cutlery

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

Who Built America

I might be 4 years past due here, but this series has been extremely fun to watch. It’s also been a learning experience.  You know, back to the basics of The History Channel.  Before it turned into shitty reality TV and half-baked conspiracy theories. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good conspiracy theory, and … Continued

The Space Station

You really do want to spend the next 18 minutes watching this video, you will thank me. I got two things out this tour. 1). There are flashlights everywhere.  I guess it makes some sense, it still seems excessive. 2). It’s more cluttered than a teenager’s bedroom.  And I’m sure like every teenager, they moved … Continued

Hyperloop Test

When Elon Musk debuted his Hyperloop idea 3 years ago it was impressive.  He shared the technology with the world to challenge everyone to make this dream a reality.  Now we’re getting companies to start building the prototype.  Hyperloop One and BIG are teaming up for to build a track in, you guessed it, Dubai. … Continued
