Bartboy (author)2008-07-21

Could you add a link to mine, say something like " and if you don't have enough pieces, try this one " and have a link in the words " this one "

jollex (author)Bartboy2008-07-22


Bartboy (author)jollex2008-07-22

ok fine, but why so sensitive, they are practically the same.

jollex (author)Bartboy2008-07-23

yeah but you can advertise yours smewhere else.

Bartboy (author)jollex2008-07-23

Ive got a link to yours, can't you be nice and have a link to mine?

jollex (author)Bartboy2008-07-24

No, because I made the original and yours is a mod.

Bartboy (author)jollex2008-09-27

anyway, I now have a way better one, with poo can holders and places to out bottles, so you use fish aquarium tubing, and you can either put it in the siphon spot above your head, or below your head to drink leiserley. It also has a turret that you can aim in bed to shoot trespassers. working on mod for Dvd player.

Bartboy (author)ElvenChild2010-08-13

OF COURSE! The maximum in laziness :)

jollex (author)Bartboy2008-09-27


Bartboy (author)jollex2008-09-27

yes, and I saw someone elses comment about how you toss and turn in sleep, so am currently making it wider and stronger, so you can sleep with it on. Pics maybe later today

jollex (author)Bartboy2008-09-27

Cool, but a waste of pieces.

erikos kostarikos (author)jollex2009-08-14

well I dont think it is a waste of parts...
thats why it is only for lazy people=D
they dont care of the parts because they are too lazy to build!
but there is only one thing on it thats not good for lazy people:they need to walk to a shop to buy knex...=(

Bartboy (author)jollex2008-09-28

in a way, but this is the top of the line in knex laziness, ( I forgot to add the notes to the pics.)


TigerNod (author)Bartboy2009-07-30

Wow, its the ultimate multifunctional knex lazyness machine! Maybe you could place the gun a different way?

Bartboy (author)TigerNod2009-08-01

You know what's funny? I still have that....

TigerNod (author)Bartboy2009-08-02


Wafflicious (author)Bartboy2009-02-25

add a gun :)

Wafflicious (author)Wafflicious2009-02-25

I mean a better one:p

Bartboy (author)Wafflicious2009-02-25

Yeah, but the trigger gets pulled down. Not like a real one.

BklynDJ (author)Bartboy2009-02-24

Bartboy.. What you basically did was take his idea.. add a water bottle with a tube, a couple of cans, and a portable DVD player that you have to turn your head to the side to use; which does not look comfortable. The middle where the iPod is hanging from looks like it's not to stable. Just some constructive criticism.

Bartboy (author)BklynDJ2009-02-24

Genius! the dvd player is in it's holding place, that is not where it goes when you are watching it. I have a mech that holds it in the top. The design is very different. It is constructed completely different. I constructed this from scratch. I have completely stabled the ipod now. Also has a gun. Thanks for taking the time to comment on it. BB

anaconda (author)Bartboy2008-10-18

jdogsbart (author)2009-07-22

charlie farthing (author)2009-03-03

what is the biy pod for?

anaconda (author)2008-10-21

I made one that looks like this, but uses WAY less pieces and could hold both the ipod and the DS Lite. but im not going to post it because you gave me the idea

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-06-19

I like this thing so much, Im gonna post another comment! Woot! Awesome. sweat retro hip groovy. NICE!

jollex (author)I_am_Canadian2008-06-19

YAY!!!!! ITS A HIT. I should make a hit movie out of it.

dsman195276 (author)jollex2008-06-24

movies ruin everything.

jollex (author)dsman1952762008-06-25

True, just like Eragon.

I_am_Canadian (author)jollex2008-08-06

Bartboy (author)I_am_Canadian2008-09-27
