Introduction: The Best of Instructables Volume 1 - Video Promo

Check out this video promo of the Best of Instructables Book. It stars me being foolish, and highlights BlinkyBugs, MobMov, Marshmallow Shooters, and Bleaching with Discharge Paste.

We have a longer version of the video, which I'll share after Maker Faire this weekend.

Received my copy of the book yesterday and it's full of great projects. Of course, I'm trying not to be biased since one of mine made it into the book. :)

Me GRUMPY if not in Melbourne before Canada and USA!

Doctor What (author)2008-10-16

I didn't think FungusAmungus actually looked like that... Based on what he writes he seemed like an old guy.

It is always strange when you first put a face and voice to a name. Nice video.

He just doesn't seem like an "Ed". I see him more as a Sam.

bumpus (author)Doctor What2008-10-16

Naaah, I could see him being a 'Shaun'

Doctor What (author)bumpus2008-10-16

Is this conversation getting weird? Shaun? I guess it could work.

bumpus (author)Doctor What2008-10-16

I don't think so.. Although, I do say, that I think Ed's name is Edward.

Cool, cool, cool. I can't wait!! Maybe I should write an Instructable turning the Insturctable Book into more awesome... wait... that doesn't seem posible... oooh, how about a built in night reading lamp... thats SOLAR POWErED... Yes, that will do nicely...

Te he he... That won't work, you need the sun to be shining silly!

well, gosh, of course I'd use parts from a solar garden light! Batteries and all.

I know, just being funny.

dchall8 (author)2008-10-17

That is pretty cool. The guerrilla mobile drive in is still my favorite.

tacomanmcjab (author)2008-10-16

Now this is why I love instructables!!

threecheersfornick (author)2008-10-16

Is the sound totally out of sink, or is it just me?

Its for me too.

It's just you. Don't worry, it happens to the best of us. Nursing home for you!
