This is a test of a video Instructable. The whole process was filmed and edited down to the bare bone steps.
Project: Build a one dimension accelerometer from simple household supplies. Use it to see how many G's you are pulling in one direction. A better accelerometer (two dimension) is in the works, so sit tight.
Let me know how the concept of a video Instructable is. From what I have seen, there is more complete instruction and you can see how everything is done. The drawbacks are that you have to watch a video instead of reading, so it will take some more time.
