This Instructable submitted by the Rabbit-Hole Maker Space as part of the Instructables Sponsorship Program.
As we start this evening - the whiteboard comes out! The theme, as mentioned before is the Zombie Apocalypse! Some of our initial ideas are:
Inspiration: One of our hackerspace members bikes everywhere. He needs a bike trailer to haul his groceries and zombie weapons. Materials: PVCS, Rope, Bushings, Axle, Metal bar stock, rubbermaid tote, secondhand bike wheels.
Solar Powered Lantern
Inspiration: During the tsunami that hit Japan, the Tokyo hackerspace made solar powered lanterns and handed them out while power was still down. Materials: Old busted lanterns (camping lanterns/nonworking solar powered lanterns)
Inspiration: Tim's recycling folks stopped picking up recycling. So! Since he has to bring it in, it may be worth it to crush and decrease on space taken up. Materials: Old snowblower tires, old garage door opener, garage door sensor, old dartboard for its LED displays and sound chip.
DIY water filter
Inspiration: During the zombie apocalypse, you're going to need food and water - but to have potable water, you need a water filter! Materials: Charcoal from the fireplace, sand, old rubbermaid container, unused tubing
