I am an origami enthusiast in some of my spare time, and I have several of my own designs brewing. Does anyone know of any software that can help in the process of creating the step-by-step instructions so that they look nice and elegant? Alternatively, are there any programmers that would like to team up on this project and create one? I have some experience programming and have some other ideas up in my noodle if anyone is interested.

I was thinking it would be cool to have a webcam set up for timelapse or something similar but only hooked up to a hard drive no computer so you could leave/hide it places to get cool shots.

So, I work at a science center and we have our annual Engineering Olympics coming up and we've been brainstorming something about thermodynamics. The general format is 6 teams from different highschools in the area are given a task to complete from one engineering discipline, such as construct windmill blades to achieve the highest amperage from an attatched motor or insullate a container of water with random materials to prevent it heating up when submerged in boiling water. This year, I haven't really found an idea for thermo that really excites me. Thermo isn't the easiest thing in the world in highschool, and since we're dealing with kids from different schools, we have no way of knowing how advanced they are. So, any ideas of a project to test their thermodynamic mettle?

It's winter time and tying your hockey skates is a hassle. One time my cousin didn't tie his hockey skates well and ended up with not a sprained ankle something else a little worse I forget the exact name. I don't want this to happen to me it looked very painful.

My neighborhood has a local bunch of kids who come around riding bikes, and taunting our dogs. they also swear loudly (like, hearing the "f" word from 50 yards away, shouted by an 8 year old.) and i would really like to find a nice, non-violent way to keep these kids from riding their bikes in the field by my house. does anyone have any ideas that won't get me arrested or egged?

I rescued this from the trashpile, and I really think I could turn this into something cool and unique for my mid-century home. I just can't think of anything yet. Do you have any ideas?
Can you use an old USB connector with a computer CD/DVD drive to make a USB drive that runs swappable discs and play computer games on a computer with no room for the drive?

I'm pretty much new to the arduino stuff and I was planning on making a biped robot. But first before all of that I need to know how to use servos. :P Is there someone out there that can maybe post a very easy to understand tutorial of how servos work? I've read ladyada's tutorial on the arduino. So basically I understand all of that but I'd like to know how to control servos and how to program them.

I am looking for tips on creating a small windmill to charge a twelve volt battery. what is the best type of motor to use? Does anyone know how to make a charging circuit, so that even when the winds are low, it can charge the battery? What is the best type of battery? Are there any other questions i should be asking about wind power, and what are the answers to them?

Recently, I've become fascinated with Instructables involving re-purposing gadgets, gizmos, and gears. I want to learn some basics before I start dismantling my old cell phone or cd player, but I don't know anyone I can ask. And even if I did know someone, I'm not sure I would know WHAT to ask. I'm at the beginning of a machine and motherboard addiction, I can feel it. Do you know any good dealers? _Science on the Side_

I've swapped my old Samsung D900 for a Pixon, mainly for the 8mp camera. I've managed to get my contacts onto the Pixon via repeated Sim card copying but I used to be able to sync both contacts and calendars using iSync over bluetooth but it doesn't work with the Pixon. Ideally it needs to be a non web-based technique because I have very little phone signal in the remote rural location where I live and the Pixon does not connect via wi-fi.

Dammit, I've been beaten to it. I didn't even realize there was a BQ contest until a few minutes ago. There's not many Questions either.. Will more be added ? Also will there be a non-math BQ round for those of us who wish to punch math square in the face ? P.s. do you like my new avatar ? i got sick of the paper robot staring at me so i whipped this up in photoshop :D

I bought one of ladyada's USBtinyisp avr programmers a few days ago, its working great! i program alot in visual basic but i never tried anything quite like the C similar programming of the avr chips. because of that i reprogram my chip ALOT, so i decided to make a target board. i already have the "blank" board and a UV lamp to prepare it. i have sodium hydroxide to develop it. all i need is something to etch off the copper. so i was wondering: can i etch off the copper with 32% hydrochloric acid/muratic acid/HCL?

I have seen a few projects on building a faraday battery for powering projects, but there is nothing on how to build one from scratch. There is no info how to determine output, choose the proper magnet, etc. I have also heard that you can build one with multiple coil sectors in series for a higher max output.
I know there are a lot of these suggestions but I think this one shouldn't be overly difficult. Could the search function, when no instructables are returned for a specific keyword, automatically search for members instead and return those results if there are any? Most of the time when I want to get to a member's profile page I stick their username in the search box, search, it tells me there aren't any instructables called "gmjhowe" or whoever, I click people and search again, it gives me the search result, I click on it, get to where I was going.

I went to the electronics shop looking for a resistor, but they said for me choose the wattage! As far as I know, the wattage of a resitor is calculated by its current or voltage. Please help me!
