Bernie Rohde makes clocks.  That’s nothing special to be honest, in the last hundred years or so clock making has gone from being a master level skill, to something overlooked and simple.  Sure, the science of time keeping has advanced greatly over the years, they even decided to add a leap second to the day … Continued

Very Custom PC Case

0

People are ingenious, we will do crazy things, all because we can.  Well, this imgur album shows the process of taking a stuffed Beaver, hollowing out the inside, and installing a motherboard.  It’s all come to light from reddit user KingsBlade, but this looks like a very old album (3 years according to imgur), and … Continued

Star Ceiling

0

Instrucable user redsunsoft has created a nice simple how to on making a star field ceiling.  However, his instructions aren’t for something permanent, or difficult to build, he actually used relatively cheap materials and made something that can move with him (since he’s currently renting this place). He attached a cheap set of fiber optics … Continued

How Camera Sensors Work

0

Understanding how film works is pretty easy, light comes in, and a chemical reaction makes a negative that for all intents and purposes is permanent.  With digital cameras, that’s not really as easy to understand, what happens with the light, what does it do?  Well, these two animations go over the basics of what the … Continued

I do love me some time-lapse.  And it’s storm season out in the mid-western United States, so be prepared for some awesome super cell storm time-lapses on the horizon.  See what I did there, horizon, storm.  I’m such a crazy guy. {Peta Pixel}

Wooden RISK

0

It actually might come as a surprise to you,but I enjoy the game RISK.  Now, to be 111% honest, I always preferred to play Castle RISK over regular RISK, and if given the option, I’d choose Axis & Allies any day.  But all of that is neither here nor there, this post is about reddit user Corrado-Cerea, … Continued

Storage -> Loft

0

reddit user psychemagic has turned an old run down storage unit into a super nice, one room loft. This is what the outside looked like, big ugly black doors. And after some new brick work, a nice new door and some small windows, it looks 100% better: The inside of the building was equally as … Continued

Human Foosball

http://steve.deadlycomputer.com/pictures/blog/foosball.webm The amount of time spent building this game is impressive.  The re-usability of it is questionable.  Especially since it seems like these people are as good as human sized Foosball as the average person is a normal Foosball.  I will hand it to them though, this was a cool idea that I’ve never seen … Continued
