Who are your "Tech Heros?"

When I was young I idolized Jacques-Yves Cousteau, in part because of the undersea technology (aqualung, minisubs, habitations, etc.) but also since he was one of the first to warn of overfishing and open-ocean pollution. Do young people have technology heros today? (Linus T. and Bill G. come to mind, but I was hoping for someone more interesting...)

Salute to a hero.

Whilst suffering a "once in a thousand years" flood, the town of my birth lost a hero. Whilst directing drivers away from a bridge threatened by rising waters, the bridge collapsed under the feet of PC Bill Barker.  His body was found later, several miles down the coast. PC Barker leaves a wife and four children. BBC Story and associated links.

Would you be the hero?

I want you to think about this before you answer. Would you be the hero in a life or death situation? I dont want to hear so bull answer that makes you sound cool I just what to know what you would do. This is an example If there were a gunman in school who is willing to kill someone would you take part in trying to stop him? If you were hiding and you witnessed an officer go down would you run out into the line of fire to save him and bring him to safety? (Would you pick up his gun to fight in order to save your friends?) Would you be willing to die trying to save a life? This is what I am talking about.

Jug Hero to be at Maker Faire

The Make Blog has announced that Jug Hero will be at Maker Faire this year. You play the game by blowing over the mouth of the jug in time to the scrolling images similar to Guitar Hero. For extra points you can clink the bottles together.The graphics look to be a little lacking helping you out with the timing, but it's a cool idea. Hopefully it'll get a little fine-tuned for the big event.

Apology to "Salute to a hero" topic.

Some people noticed i wrote a comment on Kiteman's "Salute to a hero" topic. I am sorry about writing the comments I wrote. I know Bill Parker was a hero, but on the internet it's hard to recognize things. What i thought was people didn't post anything because they were like "why?" on the topic. Again, i am very sorry, and i pay respects to Bill. -NYPA.

How can I fix a Band Hero (YES, BAND HERO, NOT GUITAR HERO) Drum kit?

Well, I own a Band Hero Drum Kit, and the Red Drum stopped working, it doesn't respond now. I'd like to know how can I fix this? Oh, and by the way, let me recall that it's a BAND HERO DRUM KIT and it is NOT A GUITAR HERO:WT DRUM KIT! They ARE DIFFERENT!!! Because I checked the instructables manual concerning the WT Drum Kit and the images of the GH:WT drums and BH Drums ARE NOT THE SAME! I hope you can help me out :]. Thanks in advance. PS: Recalling again that is A BAND HERO DRUM KIT, NOT GH:WT.

parts for wii guitar hero drums

I have the guitar hero world tour for my wii, the cable that connects the drum set to the wii remote has recently been destroyed. the cable is white about 6-8inches long and is attatched to a circuitt board inside the drum set at one end, and like i said the other end plug into the wireless wii remote at the other end. the forceful craming of the remote into the remote storage area on top of the drum set i believe caused the damage. where can i find replacement parts? thanks eman.

Guitar Hero Drums Mod for PS2?

I have Guitar Hero III for playstation2 and I don't want to get rock band. I know the Rock Band drums don't work for guitar hero. Maybe i could take apart a Guitar hero controller and make it into a drum set. I want it to be able to wammy and use star power (maybe pedals or something). and i want to be able to press 3 buttons at the same time (another pedal?). I also want to be able to hit it repeatedly to hold a note (like in rock band). I guess it should "strum" automatically when i hit a note. I don't have any idea on how to make it, but i know it's possible, and that there is a simple way of doing it. it doesn't have to look nice. it should just work. Anyway, I hope someone could help me out and make an Instructable or a youtube video or something. I'm sure many others would love to do it. thanks, schetleft
