Prolific Instructables member zieak has won four shirts so far from participating in contests. So when he went to Asia he brought one along and took some photos. The pics are pretty great. You can see a few here or go to his site to see the whole collection.Thanks, Zieak! Now who else can show us the robot outside the U.S.?

Robot and I went flying the other day, so we took a picture together. Whenever I wear it out in public, I hope somebody will come up to me and say that they're a member, too. Hasn't happened yet. I look a tad bit tired(/retarded)...since i'd been flying all day. EDIT: Yeah, I look really retarded in that picture...but at least Robot looks groovy!

I wore my Instructables shirt while on a trip to Peru at Machu Picchu. I washed it in the bathroom sink the night before and when i put it on the the morning it was still quite damp. Didn't matter because i was rained on while hiking down from Wayna Picchu (the mountain in the background of the main picture). I had my rain jacket but the cool rain felt great. In a little less than two weeks i'll try and wear my shirt on the equator too!

As you may possibly recall,the Instructables Robot was made in SketchUp. I was inspired by that and today,a few mins before,I made the Robot in Phun,the 2D physics sandbox. It is low in detail but that can only be changed by your improvement! *hand comes out of monitor,pointing to viewer*

The Instructables team has been going strong for a while now - some of us have even been with the company for over two years! Eric took Rachel, Eric N and me to iFly, an indoor skydiving facility, as an anniversary gift. Flying is awesome, and now we want to build an indoor machine of our own! I'm going to publish all of my Instructables in flight from now on.Here's video of the first flight we did where we were just learning how to stabilize ourselves.Here's video of the second flight we did where the instructor took us up and down, spun us around, and let us move around a bit on our own.**music NOT from noahw**

Here's an image that's been making the rounds today. It's a bed that breaks down into four pieces that can then be interlocked with the floating bookshelves to form some sort of padded wall/bookshelf. It's just a design concept and not meant to be produced (I hope), but even so it's quite a case of a design looking for a problem. A few shelves on the wall will have a lot more storage for books and you can then store a futon or an inflatable mattress underneath. And do you really want your mattress displayed on the wall?

Yes Kiteman, I know just a few weeks ago I said that I haven't visited Disney in a long long time... which, at the time was true....My parent's came up to visit and my family went to the Disney "not so scary Halloween" two weeks ago (oh, I do have a 6 year old sister :p)... They give out candy (good candy too :p), most of the rides are open and the best Disney parade Disney's ever done (according to the people that work there).In any case, I thought this phallic mickey head was hilarious - I wasn't the only one that thought so too :pIn any case, I found myself poking my head around props and such, looking at how things work rather than riding rides.... And talking with some workers... They started putting up Christmas lights weeks ago - they had a cherry picker that could reach the top of the castle...In any case, robot+mickey -- both of their heads likely have the same amount of articulation (except mickey's head sounds like a printer :p)

I recently obtained for a fair price a cut piece of glass from goodwill. its rounded slightly at the sides and greatly at the corners. at the widest point it is approximately 52" by 24". its 3/8" thick-its fairly heavy as you could imagine. I mean i can pick it up by myself but its worrying me what to build the actual support out of. I was thinking to have 2 tubes pipes or cylinders at equal distances from the right and left edges-it would be at least 10 inches away from the edge on each side, leaving what, 32 inches in between them? Now my question is whats the cheapest way of doing this. i didnt THINK i would use PVC, but i dont have the slightest clue how much it could support, so idk. Aluminum tubing is cheap for smaller sizes, is that better? Id give a weight estimate but im terrible at estimating things based off my senses so thats a bad idea. Maybe you can get an idea off the dimensions. I can spend at max 15 bucks for PVC or aluminum. oh, and the desk is gonna be around 30 inches tall. so 5 feet is just enough. Also, what would be a good idea to place the cylinders on top of for balance? At this point, all i need to do is keep the glass 30 inches off the ground with ~3 feet of space for me to slide my chair into (although its really not a neccessity because itll be out alot anyway.) with a 15 dollar budget. any sugestions?

On the 16th of October, team instructables decided to head over to Trapeze Arts for a day of fun and adventure! As a reward for our one millionth registered user, I was given the option to choose how we got to celebrate the occasion. After researching for a little while, a friend mentioned that she'd recently gone to a one day trapeze class. I looked into it, and it seemed like a fun idea. Several people brought cameras and a bunch of videos were taken. You can see photo's of the event below, sadly the video's haven't been cut together yet. Hopefully I'll be able to add that soon! ----- Well, I finally managed to get the videos all put together, I hope you enjoy! You can find them on our youtube channel. However, I'll just embed them here for ease of browsing! I figured it'd be nice to show off one complete run by everyone. Sadly we didn't get video of everyone getting caught, so I had to make do with what I had. Now a video of everyone's practice runs. We had to just practice swinging and getting our legs up and over the bar, then jumping back into the net. The guy who does the double flip out of the net at the end of the video is the instructor who's catching us in the following video. Then we all got a chance to get caught. this is another mashed up video of all of us on our runs to get caught by one of the instructors. Finally, after we finished the trapezing, we went to the equipment room to have some more fun. There were trampolines, tight rope (that was a couple feet of the ground), plate spinning, super yo-yo's, and a whole ton more. Again, we were all having fun, so video didn't get taken of everything, but I think this mash-up kind of shows off some of what we got to do. ...And that was our trip to Trapeze Arts! Everyone who worked there was great, and we had a blast! Thanks!

"A Roman Catholic priest who floated off under hundreds of helium party balloons was missing Monday off the southern coast of Brazil."Link via CNNIt is hard to tell if this is funny or sad. -On one hand, anyone who attempts to break the record for longest party balloon flight is knowingly risking their life, and therefore open to be criticized / mocked when the likely outcome occurs.-On the other hand, this was a priest trying to raise money for a cause.-But back on the other hand, the cause he was trying to raise money for was a trucker's rest stop.It is a close call, but that is two in favor in puns, and one against. The puns have it!

Hi, I’m experiencing problems with my LG Flatron Wide. The screen comes on with a very faded picture and then goes black. I assumed that maybe the capacitors (like for others) needed to be changed. However, I have opened the monitor and the caps look perfectly fine, no bulges or anything. Does anyone think I should just go ahead and try changing the caps anyway? Or could anything else be wrong? Thanks a lot.

I'm trying to wire up an emergency stop button. Australian power outlets have 3 prongs, active, neutral and earth. My switch has 2 connections, one Normally Open one Normally Closed. I think I need to have the active line connected to NC (so connected when the switch is in the ON position) and the neutral connected to NO, and the earth remaining connected regardless. This should mean that when it's on the Active line is connected to ground and this the power is on past the switch. When the switch is OFF the neutral is connected to earth and it is safely off (any remaining power in devices connected to it can drain to earth). Am I right in thinking this? or is there something I've overlooked? I am also aware that mains power (240V AC in Australia) is deadly, and not a good idea to play with unless you are a qualified expert. I do intend to have this checked before use, however I would like to have a proper understanding before I go any further. The emergency stop button I have is rated for sufficient volts and amps to use on Australian mains power, and is suitable for the intended use (before a corded drill or circular saw).

HI, My HP 1502 monitor has been going for a few weeks now. It would go to white when turned on but after turning it off and on a few times it would show the XP login screen. This has now progressed to showing a very very washed out light blue then quickly to white. I have looked at the capacitors and they seem okay as there are no 'big bulges' etc. I attach an image to see the board, maybe you can see better than I. Any other help please? Thanks oz :-)

Switching on to computers run by solar powered batteries, St.Xaviers now has alternative sources of energy to power lights, fans and other gadgets in the premises. It built the solar power system onsite as it is far more economical and powerful than the conventional system. Initially they have planned to run ten computers from as many solar panels and in phases install about 100 such panels on our roof tops to run computer science courses, The fund for research work for alternative sources of energy would be borne by the college and if needed they would approach other agency for funding. The college, celebrating its 150th year, got autonomy three years ago. And I study there!!! How cool is that?? One of our science labs are completely solar powered! I'll upload more pictures soon!!

Hi, I have a problem with my robotics project. I am building an autonomous car using a LiPo battery (2S) and a 15T motor and an Arduino board. I know that I have to initialize the ESC at the beginning of my code but for some reason, the initialization goes wrong sometimes. I don't know if my code is wrong or what. Sometimes the initialization is fine and I'm able to run the car, but sometimes it goes full reverse which is very inconvenient. These are the 8 lines of code I have to initiate the ESC: throttle.attach(6); throttle.write(70); delay(2000); digitalWrite(6,LOW); delay(1000); throttle.write(77); delay(1000); digitalWrite(6,LOW);

Nope, that isn't a typo. You've heard of the periodic table of elements? Well, check out this hilarious table of condiments that periodically go bad. From Condiment No. 1 (Mayonnaise, which the table says goes bad in 3 months) to Condiment No. 75 (Maraschino, which apparently never goes bad), you can look up just about any condiment you can name to see when you need to toss it out. Or at least when these people think it goes bad.Take it with a grain of salt (Condiment No. 2, it never goes bad!) though-it claims Lemon goes bad in 2 months. Stuff and nonsense. I've eaten 3 month old lemons that were perfectly good.Mendeleev would be so proud...
