3D Metal Printing

0

Researchers at Harvard have come up with a way to use LASERs to anneal silver nano-particle liquid into wire that’s thinner then a human hair.  This process allow them to eject the silver liquid through a needle and have a laser solidify it instantly to print 3 dimensional wire objects.  The video above is fun … Continued

1.6 Million Sunrises

0

The International Space Station just recently celebrated it’s 100,000th orbit across the globe.  Every day they get 16 sunrises, so this scene has played out about 1.6 million times over the last 17 or so years. Good Morning! Sunrise bursting on the scene followed by beautiful ocean sun glint. We get 16 of these every … Continued

Recyclable Plastic Rings

I’m not really sure how realistic this is, I did see it on the internet, so it could be true.  I think they would have a better chance at making it realistic if they got rid of the “green I’m better than you” vibe that the video gives off.  But hey, that’s me.  Saltwater Brewery … Continued

Fluff Mirror

0

Daniel Rozin has made an interesting 3D “mirror” that uses an Xbox Kinect hooked up to a computer that controls puffs of fabric, white and black pieces.  The “mirror” makes a silhouette of what the Kinect sees, and then uses linear motors to push or pull the different colors up.  I like it, it’s neat. … Continued

Analog Calculator

I think this is pretty damn impressive.  Mostly the mechanical engineering part.  There is some really detailed pieces of engineering in there, the milled brass parts, the recessed numbers, everything about this screams impressively well made.  Analog things like this are cool, I wish there were more of them around.

DIY Nitrocellulose Cannon

0

Nitrocellulose is just a fancy word for flash paper.  But Youtuber NightHawkInLight has created a pretty simple cannon that he used to fire this flash paper.  It’s all bark and no bite, but that show is pretty impressive, as is the video below.  The entire cannon is very well made, especially the curved hinge.  Actually, … Continued

Making Lemon Drops

0

I’m not a big candy person, but watching these videos from Lofty Pursuits on these nearly 200 year old machines making small drops of candy is pretty cool.  It’s basically pure sugar with some specific flavors added in.  The cool part is the way the rollers go together to form the drops.  Equally as interesting … 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

How a Jet Engine is built

0

Rolls Royce currently makes the most advanced Jet engines in the world.  In this video series below you can see what does into building the brand new precision engineered marvel.   I think the most impressive feat is that it only takes 20 days to build them.  That’s efficiency there. {MAKE}
