Airsoft Mortar

My homemade marble cannon the MC-200 has, and can be repurposed to fire hundreds of airsoft bb's at once. It is too dangerous (not to mention hefty... It's 6 feet long!) to fire directly at people, so it makes a good mortar. I only ended up paying $20 for it is the best part too.

How to make a long lasting battery pack for portable vaporizer that is small and long lasting?

What would the specs be to make a battery or buy a battery that would work for my portable vapir oxygen mini vaporizer? Can I just use any 12v battery pack or is it more complicated than that? The ac adapter says the output power is 12v----1.5A with a max output power of 18w. And I know the oxygen mini has an optional battery pack but it is expensive and doesn't last that long. The attached picture is of the ac adapter. Also how could I charge this pack?

i have an idea for a custom ergonomic mouse, and i'm hoping for someone to judge me.

Hello community, lately i've been feeling some pain in my wrist from computer usage, and while letting my wrist get some rest, i thought about getting an ergonomically designed mouse. but let's face it: it's way more fun to make one yourself =) so i have this idea for casting a mouse casing, but i never casted anything before, so i'm hoping to find some mistakes in my plan before they cost me money (I'm not stingy, i just don't have a lot of money). so i'm hoping that someone who did cast stuff before could judge my plan before i execute it. - i'll first unscrew my current mouse, and see how the electronics inside are held in place. - i'll let my hand rest in silly putty, so it'll take the shape of my hand in a relaxed position. - then i'll use silicone putty to make a negative of my hand mold. (i'm not sure whether silly putty and silicone putty are the same thing, i'm very bad at doing productive research. if they are, that's a problem, and i might need to use something else). - after i've got my negative, i'll use something like Instamorph to create the actual case i'll eventually use. i'll also make a shape for the inside to hold the elektronics. depending on how precise this has to be, i might use another mold for that too. - to finish it up, i'll take the newly made case out of it's mold, apply some custom painting (just for fun), and perhaps some rubber for extra grip, and then transfer the elektronics. so that is my plan. i hope i'll get some productive comments on this, and perhaps i'll learn something from it. i'm going to study product design, so how awesome would it be if i did it with a self-designed mouse ^_^ oh, and this might be posted in the wrong place. i haven't used this website for a while. if it is, please accept my apologies. i hate messy websited too. =P

Need someone who can laser-cut/machine a number of parts based on my design...

Hello all! I need some custom-designed parts for a project I am doing and I don't (yet) have the machinery and means to make them. I could go to any number of online places for custom parts, but I ask here first because I am trying to both support and rely on the community spirit of the site, and because the members here are more sensitive to some of the weird stuff people around here make and therefore are not simply suggesting materials based on "industry standard" uses. Additionally, I thought I would probably get a better deal without the "limited production run" price hike that machine shops usually charge. To add to that, I don't need new and shiny materials. As long as it works, I don't mind using what comes off of other people's scrap piles. I don't have the designs laid out yet, but I'm thinking I will probably have a need for cutout polycarbonate or aluminum about 3/16 to 1/4 inch thick (4.7-6.3mm), I'm not sure of the material yet. Basically, it would involve drilling one or more holes at each end of a short strip of that. Dead simple, and a pain that I can't do it, but like I said, I don't have the tools. For now, that's all I can think I need. If you're interested, send me a message and we can talk about details and compensation. I look forward to helping the Instructables community be as self-sufficient as possible! Thanks, Gareth

Want to put 12 different voice instructions into a stuffed lamb. Button pressed; voice begins. Where is this technology?

LambieAnn is a lamb who sees lambs skating on TV and wants to learn to skate. She is the main character in a children's book. I would like to put a voice into her stuffed animal character. When the button would be pressed, it would activate her voice. She would give educational cues that would help all skaters become better i.e keep your head up. There would be a few fun comments too. I would like to know where I can find this technology so the button can be put into the lamb's ear or belly when the stuffed animal is manufacturered.

Custom Painted Nerf Guns (Looking for Offers)

Hello!  I'm JonnyBGood, and I'm looking to accumulate some offers for my custom painted Nerf guns. I don't plan on going as far as commissions, I just want to see if there's any interest in my work for the right price. As of right now I'm mainly checking the market, before fully investing in making more custom Nerf guns. When making an offer, please send me it in a PM and make sure to consider that I've spent a minimal of five hours of painting. Also consider the cost of the blaster and the time required to make modifications. In my state, the minimal wage is around 8$ so I will ignore any offer that has me literally working for free. I hope that this works out and I receive a lot of reasonable offers so I can start painting, and then I will definitely get back to everyone who has sent me an offer.  Thanks for checking out my latest endeavor, and I hope my received feedback allows this to be successful!  JonnyBGood

If you could have a custom bass (or have one) what would it be like?

The finish would be a sort of metallic blue and black flame. KIllswitch, and a couple of built in effects, couple gaine and tone knobs. 5 string, with the usual music man head. Maybe a bit different though, all thats just off the top of my head.

Custom Refrigerator Skin

I wanted to figure out how to create a skin for large items such as refrigerators, washing machines,  etc.   I am having trouble conceptualizing the necessary steps to completely hide cosmetic blemishes on large machines and appliances.  Would creating a skin be a good solution?  I am guessing there is a more elegant way than simply placing a large image printout underneath glass?  Also FYI, some of the appliances are completely brand new so I would ideally want a "top layer" solution as opposed to a "painting" solution. Nice to have features: 1.  weather proof 2.  Can be easily swapped with new design

I am currently struggling to find out how I would get the buttons to communicate with the computer... would it be through some sort of Arduino board? Or something else? And then how I would assign custom functions to each individual button/dial/switch. I have attached a (very basic and probably incorrect) diagram in order to try and show what I want to make. Any ways, thanks for any help you can provide :)

Custom Stairwell Doubles as Handy Bookshelf

These stairs provide access to a loft room in a tiny apartment as well as a nifty spot to place loads of old paperbacks and CDs. As someone who is getting threats to start getting rid of books on a near daily basis, I can appreciate this.Another thing that's interesting is that this is the first set of stairs I've seen that has a prescribed way of going up and down them. You're meant to step on the side that sticks out more with the indent allowing the traveling foot to clear it.
