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

I have no idea what this movie is about.  Seriously, even after the trailer, it’s not apparent what the plot of the movie is.  But there are 2 Easter Eggs in the trailer that piqued my interest. If you want to find them for yourself, then don’t read any more.

Pure Photos

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

I do enjoy watching … Continued

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.

DIY 3D LED POV

Is that enough acronyms in the title?  No, I think I can get a few more, don’t you?  I find the rotating LED signs interesting, though useless.  I can’t think of a reason to make one, and as such, I don’t really want to spend too much of my already valuable time making one.  I … Continued

Woodworking!

The Japanese are pretty crazy when it comes to their wood working joinery skills.  I remember reading somewhere that it’s all due to the lack of raw materials on the islands.  That meant that they couldn’t use nails, or forge large iron plates to connect timber together, instead they had to come up with these … Continued
