Because the first one is so pale, I saw the thumbnail and thought "huh, that's a neat 3D printing demo". Then I read the article and went "Holy ****, they are made of wood? How on earth..."
I love it! Genuinely unsettling halloween decorations are my favourite, way better than smiling cartoony pumpkins and vampires (if you don't have to worry about terrifying small children).One tip: if you don't have glow in the dark paint but you're going to use a blacklight, highlighter ink glows strongly under UV light so you could use that instead. You can take the felt ink reservoir out of a highlighter pen and soak it in water to make your own glow fluid- see 3 Ways To Make Water Glow. This way you can even get different colours, though it won't be as bright as glow in the dark paint.
You and this guy need to meet up :)
I guess this doesn't even have to be done with glaze on pots - you could use the same technique to apply, say, fabric paint to a plain cylindrical lampshade? As long as what you are using for the design doesn't dissolve the tape or bleed under it, it should be good.
If it were me, the primary use would be like a "helping hands" for soldering or other detail work, under manual control rather than automated movement. A robot arm big, strong and precise enough for any bigger jobs would probably be unaffordable in terms of materials.What would really make it stand out from both manual helping-handses and MeArm-type projects would be good IK so you can move the end effector in XYZ coordinates, rather than just controlling the joint axes directly.What's the background of your team of engineers?

If you're good at soldering (and you'll have to be to make any circuit that small), you can dead-bug solder an 8-pin ATTiny chip and the passives you need in that much space. Then it can fade in, fade out, blink "Happy birthday" in Morse or flicker like a candle- it's just a case of programming it to do what you need. You wouldn't need that many components, you could reproduce this circuit (I think the linked one is to make the chip programmable in-circuit which you probably don't need)If you need to do it with only discrete components, you can use something like this circuit but it might be more challenging to solder because there are a lot of links to make.
Suggestion: Get a 12v cooler, leave it in your trunk filled with water bottles and reusable ice packs. They draw about 50W or 3.5A@12V so you could continue running it for an hour or so without worrying too much about flattening your battery, although having a second battery would be a real bonus. You can get batteries with higher capacity than a normal car battery if it doesn't have to be able to provide hundreds of amps to crank your engine and it doesn't matter if it goes flat. When necessary, pull a cold water/coke/ice pack out of the cooler- it's much more efficient to just cool yourself rather than try to cool the entire inside of your car.
Clever! I have some leftover LED strip, might have to make one of these into a table lamp...
The Digispark may be what you need. It's Arduino compatible, so there will be a ton of tutorials on how to write simple code that blinks LEDs. It's cheap ($8), about an inch square, and simple to assemble as long as you can solder a few through-hole components or know someone who can.If space is absolutely vital you could use a naked ATTiny chip, but programming those is a lot more complex than programming an Arduino so maybe isn't suitable for a first project.
I made this tonight but it was gone before I had time to take photos! I used Tejana15's suggested metric weights (65g flour, 55g butter) and cooked for 60s in a coffee mug in a 900W microwave, turned out pretty good! Nice springy sponge, the first crumbled a bit on taking it out of the mug because i overcooked slightly, the second had a tiny uncooked bit around the bottom edge where it was in the bottom corner of the mug - maybe don't use heavy walled containers as they suck the heat out while cooking.It smells quite strongly of egg and butter while cooking, but just tastes like sponge cake. I made mini victoria sponges with jam and whipped cream in the middle, the cream definitely helps as the cake was a bit dense in texture.One word of warning: according to this site (http://healthyea...see more »I made this tonight but it was gone before I had time to take photos!

The whole thing took about 20 minutes start to finish so they are dangerously easy to make...
The Android camera documentation tells me you can control the aperture (if the device you are using has one), shutter speed and ISO when an app takes a picture. If you wanted to be able to control these things you'd need to write an app which uses those parameters and makes a camera request to take a picture.To use potentiometers you'd need a hardware device that can read those potentiometers - something like the Android Dev Kit:which would communicate those values to the app running on the phone which would then use them to make the camera request.
"North west Wales on an island" - Anglesey?I'd be interested to see how your sugar beet wine/vinegar turns out. Aside from the strawberries, are you growing any fruits or aromatics you might use to flavour the results?

What are the chances- I had this exact problem with my car key the day before yesterday. Did you sort anything out? I'm hoping it's possible to get a replacement for just the fob half and put the blade into the new key, though you'd also have to transplant across the radio and immobiliser for it to work properly.
If you want something to do with almond liqueur you have sitting around, layer it with raspberry vodka and irish cream for a bakewell tart shot :)
"I needed to make a small insinuation"I think you might have meant "incision" there- an incision is a small cut, whereas insinuation means hinting or suggesting something. Just a thought.I like the look of this, although the table is quite small- if you made a bigger table this could be a really cool project.
Awww... you were one of the members I subscribed to, not just because I like reading the stuff you've made, but also because I know I'm going to get a healthy dose of philosophical rambling and some new ideas from what you write. I know that "fly below the radar" feeling, hope we'll see you on the other side (of the channel? I'm still intending to buy you a fish'n'chips when you tip up on the beach in Sooky You)
What paradise do you live in where hex-head wood screws are common? I went to buy a box of Torx head wood screws because I'm putting in and taking up floorboards so often in my wreck of a house, but the stupid hardware store had virtually none, all the wrong size and they cost something like £8 for 25. 100 Pozidrive screws were half the price, but at what price my sanity having to deal with all those mangled screw heads?
I thought alcohol helped deal with head lice because they breathe through pores in their skin, and the alcohol poisons them. When I was a kid the DIY cure for head lice was methylated spirits on the hair- I wouldn't recommend that, but mouthwash with alcohol in (Listerine is over 25% alcohol!) may well have the same result.
I had a friend who used to send me all those chain emails witg crazy hoaxes in them- people selling perfume using ether to knock you out and mug you, spider eggs in new bras, that sort of thing. I made it into a game to see if I could disprove it with a reliable source (usually Snopes) while holding my breath. I told her about this game every time I got one of the emails and it must have sunk in eventually because she stopped sending them to me.The point was to demonstrate that checking an unbelievable story online isn't an arduous task, almost always a 30 second google will give you either corroborating sources or a "this is a hoax" writeup.
I wondered how signal boosters work, so I looked it up on Google. I found http://www.andybrain.com/extras/cellphone-antenna-... which I think tells you everything you need to know (they don't work at all and may make your reception worse).If you don't want to take this one guy's word for it (after his double blind experiment), what about the 184 people who gave this signal booster sticker a 1 star review on Amazon? https://www.amazon.com/Cellular-Innovations--BOOSTER-Universal-Antenna/dp/B00009WCAP/ref=sr_1_5?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1468241391&sr=1-5&keywords=signal+booster+sticker
