    Creepy Creature quad Stilt

    Your tutorial inspired a tremendous amount of my build. Thank you!It's wonderful to be a big creepy creature. If you are considering making this though there's an important safety note...It was told to me by professional stilters that quad stilts are, ironically, the most dangerous type of stilting you can do. With normal two legged stilts you can fall to your knees, with a quad stilt at best you'll land on your arms/shoulders, and more often than not go straight forward on your face with significant threat to your neck. You should seek out a local stilt performer or circus school to train you properly. It will be very worth your time, you'll be safe, make new friends, and improve your craft!You'll be seeing "Corvus" out and about in the North East US again next year!https...

    Smart LED Window

    I was thinking the same Greiss. Thanks Erroneous1, I appreciate the tip on this one. The reason I need a swifter response time is due to a dark corner of my kitchen. There's plenty of windows though not enough for our "dark scary" corner, so a quicker response time would be preferred. (Right corner of the pic) Would build this into the same wall as the window as a "long window"

    In my opinion you can use bottled water. Put some dog food in and a little bit of dirt (say 1 tsp.) The soil introduces bacteria to the water and the dog food gives them something to feed on. All too soon you'll have some nice stagnant "pond" water. Rain isn't sterile either, so you only need to start with that bottled water. Using tap is ill advised since the are agents in tap water that purposely kill bacteria, even a brita won't remove those, so just grab a gallon of water.
