Duck Scooter

This duck was born without being able to walk on its own. A teacher and her kids came up with a way for the duck to get around anyway with its own scooter. It now lives with the teacher and goes to class every day.Reminds me a lot of the Dachshund wheelchair. Linkvia Neatorama

Spooked-Ducks? Answered

I was by the river today, and observed the usual gang of fat-ducks being fed bread. One lady got bit (much to her surprise and my amusement) whilst trying to hand-feed. Then the mob were spooked by something and all went for the river. I noticed a small hawk, but given that it was much smaller than the ducks I didn't see it as a threat. OK maybe the ducks took a cue from the pigeons, but I wouldn't expect a small hawk to go for a pigeon either. Opinion?

DUCK TAPE contest?

OK so I know that a least all of us have used DUCK TAPE? And I know there are many different things you can make with DUCK TAPE. SO I was thinking that it would be a cool idea if there was a DUCK TAPE CONTEST!! And the entries would have to be a object made of ALL DUCK TAPE (100% DUCK TAPE)and could not be something repaired using DUCK TAPE. PLEASE comment back and tell me what you think and if would make a great contest.

There's ducks in my Backyard

So a while back, a duck found the top of a shed a good place for nesting in my backyard. Me and my step dad talked about it and we're thinking of raising the ducklings once they hatch. We're building a pond and whatever else comes to mind that duckings would need. Has anything like this happened to any of you before? I fell dumb for asking , but is this a good idea to raise ducks from the wild as pets? (I've never heard of a story in the news where a duck has harmed a person before so...) Has anyone raised a duck before? What are your thoughts on this? haha, if we really do this, I could probably post an instructable on how to raise ducks if this goes well. Here's some pictures of the duck that's on the shed.

Light Gun Duck Shooter.. Gone?

Does anyone know why hand held light guns are not all that common..? I spent literally years as a child on the Master System (he he, that name still makes me laugh) playing light gun games like duck shooting etc... These guns were remarkably accurate and fun to play with!! So why did they go out of fashion? I mean c'mon I know they are available for SOME games but these are limited.... How could people not want a hand held weapons to make games such as halo more interactive... Is it that it is just to expensive for the general market, or is it true was it really the Master system??

Help make a quacking noise in a wooden toy duck (mechanically, not electronically)

I'm in the process of recreating the LEGO wooden duck toy. I'm only working from a few images I've found online, however; I don't have an actual one to examine. On the originals, the axles operated a couple of mechanisms: the duck head pivots to open and close the beak, and there's a mechanism under the base (I'm assuming) that makes a quacking noise. I've got a pretty good idea how to create a simple cam for the head/beak movement, but I'm not sure how to generate a quacking noise mechanically. My online searches have proved fruitless. Does anyone happen to have one of these vintage LEGO ducks and is willing to snap and share some photos of the mechanisms? Or, does anyone have any good ideas how to make a quacking noise mechanically? My thoughts are a push/pull rod-type crank attached to an axle, but on the other end of the rod . . . not sure.

How do I make an all-in-one center out of a shirt or jacket?

It needs to use led lighting for style, a camera of sorts for secret missions, a speaker to play my favorite music for everyone to hear, some air freshener spray, a place for chips, a clock, someplace for 3-4 packs of gum, a place for a can, a calculator, and wireless connectivity(optional). EDIT: Alright, I need to rephrase this, what I want is to find or have someone else make a shirt or jacket that can do a bunch of different things. A button to switch channels or turn off the tv, a light in one of the arms, maybe some sort of generator in the arms to charge a battery so I can do stuff longer. I just was kinda inspired by the conductive fabric stuff and wanted to see someone make something really awesome out of the stuff.
