About: I live in Toronto, Canada and I build almost anything computer related, Anything from robots to computer interaction devices. My favorite programming language is C+ and micro controller is avr with the Arduin…

taking a dip in the pool then you can make a pool sub in about 5 minute's time it uses a sugar cube with a penny or dime on it. to make it dive and when the surgar cube melts it rises

it would be great to have feedback so please rate it and vote for it note (

Step 1: Things Needed to Build

sugar cube
penny ,dime or washer (experment)
thin plastic sheet
sharpie
hot glue gun and stick (yes i know the coldheat soldering iron sucks but the hot glue gun rocks
