Pinhole DSLR

LEGO Paper Airplane Maker

Arthur Sacek has made the construction of paper airplanes one step simpler with his LEGO creation.  Ok, Simpler might not be the correct word since this looks far more complicated then necessary to make a simple paper airplane, but it is damn cool.  He made it for Arrow.  I’m not sure what the site is … Continued

It’s a two part episode clocking in at about 30 minutes, but worth the watch because it give you insight as to things you’d never think about when you think about making an automated glue gun.  I’d probably … Continued

Nail in Wood

You’d have to watch the video to find out how the nail got stuck in the block of wood.  I honestly wouldn’t have thought of the way they did it.  I thought they cut the wood, then glued it back together.  I was wrong. {Hacked Gadgets}
