Vintage Camera Lamp
Bicycle Wheel Windmill
Dark and Eerie Fish Tank
This is wonderful! You did an amazing job of creating an eerie scene. Great job on the details with the leaf litter and scaling the larger things towards the front to create a forced perspective. I love it!
3D Printed Stone Head
Etch A Sketch Power Supply
Also a great visual demonstration of what happens if you overload an electrical circuit!
Awesome! That's a really creative use for 2 completely unrelated things! I like it! I wonder how it will look as the copper starts to tarnish. You could let it tarnish as part of the look, or you could buff it really shiny and cover it with a clear coat to keep the copper color, OR you could heat it up to change the color completely. Nice job. You have my vote!
Glow In The Dark UFO Lamp
Most likely yes, but sometimes people use shiny surfaces like mirrors underneath objects so you can light them better or so you can see more of them. I guess you could always spray the cd with a coat of paint before you attached it!
This is a great way to make a rotating platform for displaying 3d objects or photographing them. It is also a great possibility for 3d scanning.
Lazy Susan With Old CDs and a HDD Motor
Very interesting, have you attached the .stl files here anywhere?
Great job on this. Thanks for sharing your knowledge here.
Faux Cactus W/ Zip Tie Thorns
How have I not seen this before? This is great! I think it would come out really cool too if you made a bigger one, and used a shampoo bottle to wrap the pipe cleaner around to get a good cactus shape. Awesome job, this is really creative!
Oh I voted for this btw! Good luck!
This is so awesome tooooooo omg
Love the stain you chose too
Assistive Phone Case For Limited Dexterity
The Persistence of Memory Cake
Oh man! This is seriously incredible! You took a 2d painting and turned it into a tiny 3d model (and made it a cake no less) I absolutely love it! The finished cake looks like a painting itself. Fantastic work! You've got my vote.
Excellent job! I commend you for not only helping your kids with their needs, but teaching them and allowing them to know they have control over building their own creations to help themselves in life situations. I've worked with many kids who have had autism or Asperger's in the past and an overwhelming majority of them show affinity for taking things apart, tinkering, and building things from the pieces. I was actually thinking of doing something similar to this by buying a pair of bluetooth headphones so they could be wireless! Nicely done to both of you!
If you have really bad smells and you haven't added any meat or anything, I would say that your compost is much too wet. Try adding sawdust like was mentioned above, you may also want to add better drainage so your compost only holds the moisture the material inside will allow it to, instead of your compost container keeping liquid in. It's also a possibility that your compost does not have enough oxygen and might be going anaerobic. Anaerobic digestion is some nasty smelling stuff.

VU Meter - LED Noise-o-Meter for Classrooms
Nice work sir! Good to see you keep working on your bus! Thanks for sharing!
Add a rapid-fire button to your mouse using a 555 timer
Very nice! It seems to me that with a little extra design it would be possible to use the water box as a stand for the planter. Also I believe the link to your etsy store is broken!
Hack Any Tape Player Into a Guitar Amp
Foam RC Airboat Build DIY
Great idea! With a large enough racket or small enough drone, would the frame of the racket act as a guard for the props?
Raquette Drone or Racket Racer
Or if it's this size can just draw the things smaller so we know how big a cow is and if we see one however small on lamp we get a sense of scale and are like WHOAH that is a "big" ufo and then it's a detail that people see and are like WHOAH so neat or they miss it and it's a surprise for when they do see it obviously don't want it to look like a smudge or something though
Oh man, I was SO researching that. I had a few ideas about doing it. One was to actually put a small cow inside so you could see the shadow. The other was to 3d print the tube just like a lithophane. The only problem with that was that I couldn't find any 3d software that would allow me to create a lithophane on a cone shaped tube. I did find one that would do it around a tube shape, but that wasn't quite good enough!
The beam does not get hot at all. Maybe I could just draw with a sharpie on the inside of it if I printed one large enough.
I have an idea for this project to add to it (not that it needs it though) so if it's safe (i don't know how hot the beam gets) you take like a overhead projector transparency or something like it and draw a cow and human or whatever else on it then wrap around beam and secure it temporarily but securely (so you can change it out) and then the cow or whatever is being abducted !
This is SO AWESOME!!!!!!!! So so awesome. Love it. Like I made ufo earrings once so I completely admire this project
Seat Belt Buckling Box
Hey nice work! These are pretty cool!
Vintage Style Garden Stake Tripod
Thanks for the extra info, and by no means do I intend to come across as insulting. I re-read my earlier post and it sounded much harsher than I meant it to. So I apologize for that. What I should have said was your instructable is filled with excellent info, but it would be better served by organizing it into more digestable sections. It really is fascinating stuff though, so please continue and do share your new discoveries in the future!
Digger 2.0 - Childrens Toy
Very interesting, however a long and tedious read. At the end of it all I'm still not quite sure why we should want to make these crystals or what we can do with them? Maybe a future instructable?
Passive Solar Water Heater
Very cool. I used to doodle during classes, I found it helped me listen well and stave off the boredom of lectures. I ended up with similar designs covering my folders. I saved a few of them after being surprised at how cool they looked.
I hadn't ever heard of this either, and especially enjoy seeing a how-to of a new hobby at the same time I learn about it for the first time.
Lint Roller Patio Screen Cleaner
My Ray Gun From Found Objects
Awesome. Reminds me of the Foo Fighters album. Very nice piece.
Phantom 2 Vision Plus Bait Drop Mechanism
This is most excellent. I've been looking forward to people doing stuff like this with phantoms. Do you know of the phantom having any unused channels for adding similar devices like lights or speakers that could be controlled remotely? I'm especially interested in using mine to be able to play sounds to scare geese off my pond.
Nicely done sir! That looks fantastic!
Very interesting. I'd be curious to see what happens with a whole loaf.
I think this would also be a good option in places where you can't fly drones. National parks are one good example. Also there are lots of places that are within 5 miles of an airport that are perfectly acceptable to fly kites.
I love that shot at the end, wow!
