World's youngest inventor - holds patent for new broom.

A boy of five is thought to be the UK's youngest person to patent an invention after coming up with a labour-saving broom to help his father sweep leaves.Sam Houghton, of Buxton, Derbyshire, was just three when he came up with a double-headed broom to collect large debris and fine dust simultaneously. Sam, who was inspired by animated inventors Wallace and Gromit and Archie the Inventor from TV series Balamory, said: "I saw my Daddy brushing up and made it. There are two brushes because one gets the big bits and one gets the little bits left behind."I don't know if I want to be an inventor when I grow up but this was fun.""I was swapping from one broom to the other and he asked why. When I said it was to pick up the different leaves and twigs it must have got him thinking."He got a large elastic band from the shed and put it over the two brooms, holding them just the right way to use both together. He then called me and announced that had had made up an invention." The broom works with the coarser brush at the front to pick up larger objects and the finer brush at the back.Sam's invention has been taken up by the UK-IPO, which is hoping to use it to encourage other youngsters to come up with inventions through an initiative called "Cracking Ideas".BBC StoryCracking Ideas websiteIntellectual Property Office

Failed KNEX rail gun and other stuff

This is a failed rail gun I made. It looks pretty cool and has a nice trigger but the transfer mech in the gun does not work. I will not be working on this any more so if somebody want's to use this idea then give it a shot! I broke 4 red connectors when testing this gun out so i'm pretty pissed at this thing. Also I feel that I won't be posting any more KNEX guns since it has lost my interest. I do plan on posting more KNEX stuff but just not any more guns.

Harry Potter flying broom idea. Would it work? Answered

               Ok, so in the past few months I've came up with an idea for a maglev-esque flying broom design after re-watching Harry Potter. It would hover over a magnetic track using two electromagnets- one in the handle and one hidden in the broom straw. The power of the magnets could be controlled via a control panel/joystick on the handle of the broom, letting the rider control the height of the broom. I'm not sure how the speed would work, but if I understand magnetic propulsion right, it should move forward by itself. Is there any way i could get it to where the rider could control the speed? And also, I'm assuming this will cost way more than I can afford, so at the moment it is all hypothetical.

Will a torsion spring work with this broom/mop holder? Answered

I am in the late stages of working on a broom/mop holder.  The engineering is not original, however, I may be able to show how to make it fast and cheap!  The function of the device centers on a Cam which rotates up or down and then automatically returns to a "home position". As you slide a broom handle into the cam, the cam gently opens up and accomodates the handle.  But when you pull down or let the broom go, the cam rotates downward and holds the broom very steady.  To remove broom, just push it upward a bit... The design I currently have is using elastic - but I believe we could employ a torsion spring instead. Would using a torsion spring work? How would it work or be positioned on the device? Can I make a torsion spring?  (i'd really like to do this) Can I buy them at reasonable prices anywhere? I have included a few pictures to illustrate the question... Note:  I did later figure out how to properly spell "TORSION" Included is a shot of some example springs. Also in one of the shots, I attached the mechanism to a clear plastic OJ bottle. (thought it might be easier to see the mechanics this way) Thank you for any input you may have!

Failed KNEX turret pistol

Hello everybody I have not posted a KNEX gun for a while and have not made anything that worked that good but this is something I made a month ago that failed but I kind of liked how it looked and some other aspects of it.  I know this isn't innovative or anything but it looked kind of cool and I have not seen something just like this before. Now what made this a failure was first the turret was held on by a rubber band.  This could have been fixed if I just put a longer rod in but then that would look weird. Also this has a slide trigger that I came up with but I did not take the time to fix it so that it worked right and it was mounted wrong so it rubbed on my hand when I held the gun.

snap board concept

Hello everybody, this is a new idea of mine that I want to share with you. the snap board concept. It is made of zip lock bags, card board, and duck tape. This idea could be used in notebooks or you could just make a wall of this and make all different bags and holders that snap on to the zip lock rail. You can slide the bags from side to side if you want. I might put this in a notebook case so that I can customize it with pencil holders and other organizers. Or I might make it so that I can snap on different covers and stuff like that . Please tell me any other ideas to use this idea and comments. I will post an Instructables when I make a true model and get feedback. Please comment and subscribe

How to make 4 square court?

I am planning on building a 4 square court for my camp as a service project. I plan on it being 12 feet by 12 feet and 4 inches deep (if that is sufficient) , Built on top of 3 inches of pebbles and in cased in a 2 by 4 frame. If you are unfamiliar with the game it is sometimes called hand ball (WIkipedia page) my questions are.. Do I need to use rebar? Are my depths sufficient for the size? What type of pebble am I suppose to use? Would it be stronger of i built it with 2 by 4 running across where the lines would be for a 4 square court (center of each side to the center) ? Would a 4 person team using shovels, wheelbarrows and brooms be enough for the job? And any other advice?

KNEX guns in 2016?

So I have been very busy with lots of projects and have not been able to build much with KNEX but now I have some time and hope to make some new and innovative KNEX guns. Do any of you have KNEX guns in the works or new ideas that you want to try out? There is almost Zero activity in the KNEX gun community And it would be really nice if we could bring the community back to life! So that's why i'm posting this to hopefully get some of you building again! Also I just wanted to see if any of you have things that you are planning on posting. There was no KNEX contest this year and it really sucks because having a contest really seemed to get people that don't post any to post stuff.   Do you think there is going to ever be another KNEX contest on here again? If you have any KNEX gun ideas please post in the comments with your ideas!

Convert an old canister vac to a harness/backpack vac?

Greetings Instructables Brethren! I've been getting along with all hardwood and no vacuum cleaner for 7 years now, and now with kids, I am admitting defeat, but still can't take that dreaded step into the spiral of ever-shortening planned obsolescence cycles for ever-more-expensive and flimsy junk. I'm looking for a way to turn an old Electrolux or other simple, repairable, and reliable antique canister vac, into a backpack vac. I wanted to do this Instructable myself, but between the 3 kids and being only armed with a dustmop and broom, I haven't got the time to do all the project development! Can someone out there with a few tools and a Monster Hacker / steampunk mentality, convert an old canister vac to a trusty Ghostbuster-style Backpack Duster? It will need a superlong cord, though most of those oldies-but-goodies did come with that.  And if you do this successfully, and can see fit to sell it on the Instructables Store, you probably have your first customer, right here!

So there has not been a post in the KNEX forum section for weeks about KNEX guns and It is getting so slow and dead around here that I could not stand it any more so I thought I would post a topic to see what others think. Are any of you working on stuff? I know some KNEX gunners have moved to YouTube but there is still very little content also a lot of people have left I know years ago everybody was saying that the community was dead but there was a nice jump in activity in the last year or so but It seams that stuff is dead as meat around here know. I found this community to be are very welcoming and fun place on the internet and I would hate to see it dead for good. Is there anybody that has plans of posting again? I just want to know how things are going has everybody lost interest or just grown out of this hobby? I hope that we can come back to life but I don't know will 2015 go down as the year the KNEX gun community died? Hope all is well with all you KNEXers!

New Idea but I don't know how to make it

Hey all, I was just looking at some photos on some photographers website in a series called Beautiful Decay. I had looked at maybe two or three when I suddenly had an idea. I know some various ways of aging things, primarily metal, but there is one style of aging which must technically be possible but I am coming up with only a few possibilities as to how to do it on my own: flaking paint. So far I have thought of dabbing on paint thinner before spraying to make it have a weak bond to the surface or adding powder (probably whatever the surface is, just ground up) for the same effect and then with the weak bond simply sweeping over the area with a broom several times to flake the paint. These seem like they would be hard to make seem natural. a second idea that kind of fits in is fake rust. By that I mean that the surface looks old and rusty (get your tetanus booster kind of thing) but is actually fully protected from the elements. Any ideas you have are welcome and I thank you for them in advance.

Logic Problems

I changed the topic name because I think so people might think of logic problems as a programming question or electronic question, so some people wouldn't bother looking at the topic. Think you're good at logic? Here are some problems: Title: Gorillas Enjoy Ballet Gorillas are the only animal that enjoys ballet. All animals can fly to mars. Scotch brooms bloom every Thursday all over mars. Only those few animals that do not play solitaire are immune to hay fever. No animal that travels in leaky rowboat ever has the penultimate word in a verbal discourse. Scotch broom in bloom is what gives animals hay fever. Those that do not handle hot ice cubes travel to town in leaky rowboats. All animals that have the penultimate word in a verbal discourse play solitaire. No animal that enjoys ballet handles hot ice cubes. What conclusion can you draw from the above information? Logic Puzzle number 2 This one takes up 2 pages, so I'm going to skip the story and say the logic parts. Basically this one guy thinks he smarter than gods or something so they give him a trial. He's trying to go toward the treasure and not die. Split in the road number 1, at least one sign is false, one path leads to a serpent. Path A: "This path leads to the serpent." Path B: "The sign at path A is true." Which way should he go? Split in the road number 2, 2 signs are true, one is false Path A: "The sign at Path B is true" Path B: "Path A is not the one to follow" Path C: "This is the Path to follow" Which way should he go? Split in the road number 3, 2 signs are true, one is false Path A: "Path B is the one to follow: Path B: "Path C is the one to follow, unless it's Path A" Path C: "Neither Path A nor B is the correct Path" Which way should he go? There are now 3 houses, one containing the treasure, there's a sign infront of each house. 2 signs are false, but one is true. House A: "C is not the house to enter unless THIS house is not the one to enter" House B: "The sign at house A is false" House C: "Either house A or house B is the one to enter" Which house should he choose? Please write your answer in the form of the path/house in order, for example ABCB would be path 1 is A, Path 2 is B, etcetcetc. On a totally different note (I don't wanna make another topic), can you use the cable that you use with a boarduino to make an avr programmer? If so, can you post an example schematic of how to hook up a chip.

Knex gun ideas

Knex Gun Ideas Hello fellow Knexers, I have some ideas and concepts that I have been thinking about and I would like to share them with you all.  Please give me credit if you use any of these ideas of mine.  Also please send me pictures if you are able to create any of these ideas so that we can all help to advance the Knex community.  I know that some of you may have thought of  ideas kind of  like this, so please don't get all bent out of shape that I stole one of your ideas. And please give me your feedback and and ideas in the comments below. 1 Horizontal Knex Oodammo mag     This is an idea that I came up with the other day ago, it could either be on the top or the bottom of     the gun.  First there would be a rail that holds the ammo on top and pushes it down a ramp and then     it falls in front of the FP  and is shot out.  This may have an advantage because then you don't have a                     large mag sticking out of the bottom of your gun. 2  Oodammo bull-pup    I do not see a big advantage to this but maybe some one would like to try this,  Has any one tried             this before? 3 Rotating hammer action   There would be 4 hammers attached to a cog and the hammers would spin around in a circular          motion and hit a new piece of ammo each time they spin around.  I don't think that you could get that      much power with this, but maybe it could be attached to a motor or it could be wound up and released     by the trigger.     4 Knex magazine idea      I was watching some YouTube videos about Nerf guns and there was this one that I saw, is there a      way to make something like this out of Knex?  To load the gun you slide back the pullback and load          ammo though the top into the magazine, this is not a top loading mag but you feed the ammo into the      mag from the top and it is pushed up when you slide the pullback back over the top of the gun.    Here is a link to a video about the gun so you get the idea of how it works    http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjpkp9TRDWo    I will be posting more new ideas here soon so come back often to see updates and more, and please subscribe and share your ideas    below so that we can advance the Knex community to the Next level of innovation, design, comfort and power!    If you have a question or don't understand one of these ideas,  please just ask me below.    Thanks for your ideas and feedback!!    SONIC BROOM

A Maker's Musician!

I'm not hugely into music, but I have just come across Seasick Steve (after an appearance on Top Gear!). The CD of I started Out With Nothing and I Still Got Most of it Left arrived in the mail this morning, and is now playing on my Zen, filed next to Walter Trout. I am gobsmacked. This man has been playing this stuff all my life, and I only just find out?  That's forty years of enjoyment I have missed out on! Not only is he, frankly, amazing, but he'd fit right in here, because he makes and modifies his own instruments : From wikipedia: As well as an electric guitar and self electrified acoustic guitar, Wold owns (and plays) several obscure and personalised instruments, including: The Three-String Trance Wonder - This is a normal guitar that resembles a Fender Coronado, but with only three strings. It has an old Harmony pickup added (with duct tape) and is tuned to G, G and B using an E string in the A position, a D in the G position and a G in the B position. At his gigs, he often tells the story that he bought it for $75 in this condition in Como, Mississippi from a man named Sherman, who later told him he only paid $25 for it the day before. Wold vowed never to add another string, and that he would tour the world telling his story of how Sherman ripped him off. All in good fun as Sherman Cooper is a good buddy, who gave him the guitar having had it nailed to the wall as a decoration. A lot of the time he also adds (while picking up or putting away the guitar) that it is the "...biggest piece of [poo] in the world, I swear". The One-Stringed Diddley Bow - This is a one stringed string instrument played with a slide (He uses an old screwdriver for this purpose). It consists of a 2 foot long 2x4, with a semi-loose piece of broom wire nailed to it at both ends. It was made especially for him by James 'Super Chikan' Johnson. The 'MDM' (Mississippi Drum Machine) - A small wooden box that is stomped upon, providing percussion. It is decorated with a Mississippi motorcycle license plate ("MC33583"), and a small piece of carpet. Roland Cube Amplifier - Placed on a chair to his left and set to the 'tweed' setting. The Morris Minor Guitar - When on the TV show Top Gear, presenter Jeremy Clarkson commented that Steve's car history of over 100 cars included a Morris Minor. Steve then produced a 4-string guitar that his friend had made out of two old hub caps from the Minor joined back-to-back, playing it a little in the episode. Why are still reading this?  Go, listen to it.  Now.
