In my computers class, I need to make a movie, in hopes of getting a grant for the school. The theme is school laptop use, and my teacher got my a working iBook, that I have to destroy to simulate the use.. The thing is, it works just fine! I hard to just destroy a fine working piece of art... :-/ I think I'll try to get two, so I can destroy one, and keep the other one.. (If anyone wants/needs any parts from it, besides the keyboard and outside shell, please PM me)

I am planning to sell this car within a month, but if I can't I would like to do something creative with it, like cut the roof off /demolition derby/something of the like. But I was wondering if anyone on instructables has an idea of what I could do to it. I've been looking at mutant/art cars from Burning Man, and wondering about an armored car or something.. BTW, the car is for sale, $500. Any takers?

Tiny Pacific skeletons stir hobbit debateTiny skeletons found in the caves of the Pacific islands of Palau undercut the theory that similar remains found in Indonesia might be a unique new species of humans, researchers report.The Palau skeletons, which date to between 900 and 2800 years old, appear to have belonged to so-called insular dwarfs, humans who grew smaller as a result of living on an island, the researchers say.Read the whole article here...

I have acquired, as a strict one-off, a quantity of solar cells.Apparently seconds that "work fine", the one I have unpacked is about 5 inches electrode-to-electrode, glass, and produces about 4-5V with no load in full sunlight. I assume the others are similar.A plan springs to mind. A plan to save money and be "greener". I want to use them to charge batteries during the day, then light my home with LED sources.A grand scheme, one that still requires the approval of She Who Must Be Obeyed, so I intent to take it is stages.Stage One: The Shed.I plan to install an LED light source, running off a battery charged by cells stuck to translucent panels already in my wall.Questions:what number and combination of (ordinary, cheap) LEDs would give a reasonable match for the brightness and colour of the currently-fitted 3-foot fluorescent tube?Is this a suitable circuit to charge the battery?Should I connect PV cells in series or parallel?Is there anything I should have thought of?

Question by highvoltageguy | last reply
I have this thing. I got it from a bag of obsolete parts where my dad works. It's a component, with a black plastic body. It's about 24 mm wide and 19 mm long. It has five leads, two coming out of the right and three coming out of the left. The text on it is as follows: AMF POTTER & BRUMFIELD 109P471 JRE-4011 MADE IN U.S.A. (Out here it has a symbol like "SA" inside the letter C) 02-07-75 The last one is obviously a date, it was made in the seventies. AMF used to make all kinds of things in the 60's and 70's apparently, so this must just be one of their products. My dad and I think it's a relay, but I've Googled it to no avail. Are there any old-time electronics nuts who can help me out here? Thanks a lot.

Unfortunately, this question is completely unrelated to instructables and it's DIY nature. i am turning 16 in april and was wondering about getting a job over the summer. if possible i wanted to get a job at the apple store near where i live (is it true you get a free iphone/laptop if you work there?) i would never pay for an iphone or macbook or anything expensive for that matter (i have no money) but seeing as it would be free, a job there would be awesome. anyway, i was wondering what kind of experience you would need in order to work there. i was assuming that they'd want me to have some sort of experience around apple gadgets and mac software. the only one im familiar wiht is the ipod. :-) the apple store iw ant to work at is in the mall. i was wondering if i'd be able to be a stock boy at least or something (if they even have one) anyway, i was just curious....oh and best buy too. there's one coming in and was wondering what kind of experience i'd need. it's a big store so i assumed id just stock things all day. if anyone knows about working at the apple store or best b uy, thanks for answering my question if you do. other (funny) comments are welcome, too. and for all you photographers out there: i want to buy a cheap slr and buy a nice lense for it. i want a canon rebel xti then later on buy a super awesome lense for it (seeing as the lense is much more important) is this a good idea? i'm really fond of canon and like the xti becuase it's decent and it's fairly cheap. what wouild be a good lense? i'd be using it for everyday camera taking and occasional art picturizing. am i making the right decision in doing this?

Question by knexsuperbuilderfreak | last reply
Hey, so first off let me say I have no clue if this is in the right area, the Instructables forum is a bit confusing to me. Here is my problem: I found two old speakers that I want to set up in my room with my Xbox (Original, not 360) and would also like to be able to plug a MP3 player or whatever else into it, but mainly just the Xbox. However the wires are just bare, there's no plug on it or anything. So how would I go about fixing this? I was hoping I could just take a simple audio in/out cord and snip the end off and attach it to the speaker, but I've never worked with audio before, so I'm a bit lost. Thanks for any advice :) And P.S. I'm good with electronics, I've just never worked with audio/speakers before.

Is it not the most ridiculous thing?! I have to read 2 (count 'em - two) books and do a book report on each, one of which includes making maps, graphs, and a load of other stuff.To me, summer is supposed to be a break. Like, Christmas break, or Thanksgiving break, where there shouldn't be any homework given.And what's even more stupid (but slightly funny in a way) is that I'm going into 9th grade. All the teachers and counselors were saying how much stress you're going through, and then they make us do all this homework, which is major grade, be due on the first day of school?I'm not in AP classes either. Just 9th grade gifted! It's crazy!Geez! Shouldn't there be a law against this?
