Instructables Robot Wallpapers !!

Ok so i was a bit bored earlier so i went on photoshop and started making a background/wallpaper and then i thought "Why not make an instructables one!!" So then i came up with these three designs :DYou can download them one by one or you can download a zip file of all three,I have also put a zip file of the three designs in photoshop format below, this is so you can change it around or resize it or whatever, all i ask is that you keep my watermark in the bottom right and don't claim the work as your own.Tomorrow i am going away for a week so i will have lots of free time, i will create some more designs and upload them when i get back.I hope you like the wallpapersand if you want it would be very helpful if you gave me any improvements or design suggestions in the comments below.Thanks !! =SMART=

Instructables Robot Memopad

In my Tech. class we are learning to use a line camera, develop film, make plates and use the off-set printing press. The press this was printed on is from 1955, oldest in Maine my instructor says. In the gluing process I messed up a little, some pages got misaligned and I went a little heavy on the glue, but I trimmed it after and it looks better.

Instructables Robot Patch?

I've emailed a few Instructable staff and posted a question elsewhere, but no responses... so... here's my question: I have a local company that creates custom embroidered patches and I want to have one made with the instructables.com robot... but they do have a minimum order quantity.  Is the robot logo available for something like this if it's sold online here and nowhere else? I'm not looking at making a fortune... just enough to cover my costs and shipping... and to have a couple left over to sew on my bookbag and give a few to friends. Thanks! J

Advertising Instructables

Next week is my school's annual "Activities Week". On Tuesday, I'll be taking thirty kids paint-balling, but for the rest of the week I'll be making my Paper Catapult with my groups, and using Heed as a target (they're going to try and knock his head off).Because the kids keep asking me where I get my stuff from, I will be displaying adverts for this site all week (I usually have one stuck in the window of my lab door, but this one will be copied up to A3 and stuck on the wall over the instructions display).I thought you'd like it, maybe to put up a version at work, in your neighbourhood or at school. It's only a Word document, but it does the trick.

Instructables Wallpapers

 I was trying to look for a new wallpaper, as there isn't 'just the right Doctor Who' wallpaper out there, and it occurred to me that Instructables don't have any downloadable wallpapers (that I could find). SO I took it upon myself to make some and share them with all of you! I've never made wallpapers so I kept my designs simple. I chose the Instructables Robot, as he is the most familiar icon around here. I didn't want the hand, as for some reason it creeps me out.  I have made 5 wallpapers in total: One is the Instuctables Robot sitting in the middle quite large. Res: 1024x768 Second is the same above but the resolution is 1280x1024 Third one is the same as the above two, except the Robot is a lot smaller. Res: 1024x768 Fourth: Same as above but designed for some laptops, so the resolution is 1280x800 Fifth: Same as above but resolution is 1280x1024 Feel free to tinker or change them. I have also included a screenshot of my laptop using the fourth image.

That's the special Instructables that's always on the home page.-Popular/ Most Rated/ Most Viewed/ RANDOM. These buttons will direct you to the desired button thing..-"Check out these cool Instructables." Not able to click.MIDDLE AND ETC.-Featured.

It takes you to the desired one.-Robot on the side of tabs stuff. Just a decoration.-About/ contact/ news/ blah blah. Takes you to whichever one you click.-MAKER STORE.

Instruct a wave.

Instructables can be much better. Powered by google wave. after i get my server set up with google wave i will try to help instructables by building extentions to help the whole thing work. Installing instructable found @ https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-install-Google-Wave-to-your-server/ first instructables would need to install the wave extention to openfire and send me an email at james@jamesm.com.au when thats done for me to start working, making extentions. Installing instructable found @ https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-install-Google-Wave-to-your-server/ robots made: Rossy, translater, spelly, spell checker, bloggy, alows waves to be on https://blog.instructables.com/ blog? please can still use wave, robots i will make: Sally, alows people to sell there projects using paypal, not made yet, hard, instructables robot, will be a hidden group that would include the robots above, hardest extentions i will make: JW, uploads video(mp4, flv, avi, ect), music(mp3, avi, wav, ect), images(jpeg, jpg, gif, ect), not yet, easy, swf view, alow swf files to be shown on instructables, not yet, easy Questions... will this disable instructables for a little lime? NO, to annoying. will we need to resumbit our instructables? NO that would take forever, robots job. what would instructables like this for? NO SLOW FLASH, faster to load, interactivity, save space Facts. Addsence will be getting instructables more $$ by more users. members can make group projects. members in an area can organize an event. eg maker-fair (please come to australia) members can add any files into waves. (some files may need a new extention just made for them) I will be updating this alot when I think of more so come back soon. Extentions found: Canvas -- bad when i saw this -- vectoreditor -- this has a little prob with text. like/dislike, html_gadget. Extentions i'm working on: JW player uploads and plays videos. (still needing some more development) Bot_protecter. simple editable div can not be recorded by bots eg. email addresses. (NOSPAM WAHOO) i will add all the xml files to a wave for me to create installers and add them stright into the instructable robot i am also working on. How will the gadgets be called without the xml file to add manualy? ok so if i can i will alow the instructable robot to change [canvas] [video] [like] [html] into the gadgets. the video first ask for a file and then embed that video with the jw player and lisenced if donations go towards that later in this project. and for the bot_protecter it will just pick up email address and add them into the safe gadget i made or get called by [safe]. theese can be shown as plain text by {canvas} that will show as [canvas]. if you want to see what some gadgets are goto http://jamesm.com.au/blog/ just remember that you neeed an account untill they alow guests to look at waves it is a smart way to embed the waves that i will make better when i can and this is not installedd on my server because i need to update the java. cheers and happy waven.

Goodbye to Instructables

Thanks for all the people that have supported me with my robots builds over the years and offered some very encouraging comments. I am always willing to help out with ideas where I can and will continue building things for many years to come. Unfortunately a few individuals have chosen to target me and my work taking my work and calling it their own. The work they are using is clearly being lifted directly from this site. This leaves me with no choice but to delete my account. For those that are interested I am sure you have already visited my website where you will be able to keep up to date with my work.

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.

Instructables Robot Major Malfunction

A couple of days ago, the Instructables Robot had a major malfunction! It had dutifully sent a couple hundred thousand welcome notices, but at the 222,222th message, just starting smoking and foaming at the mouth. It crashed all the servers (on a newsletter day no less!) and just started going berserk. Fortunately, its power supply overheated, slowing it down, and we were able to toss a net over it stopping the carnage.For the time being we hacked together a replacement robot and linked the original Instructables Robot's profile to Robot 2.0. So don't be surprised if you see the new robot around. Our plans were pretty good, but there must be a spark of sentience as the new robot has slightly different tastes.Anyone have ideas as to what happened? We're still not certain where the robot actually came from, but maybe that would help provide some clues?

Farewell my robot army

Dear Everyone (and you know who you are), The time we've spent together has been unforgettable and I think you're really swell, but I'm afraid it's time for me to move on now.  You've always been there for me, supporting my every effort, from cheeseburger salads and microwave cakes to turning Care Bears into a coat.  I love you for that. While in your tender, sometimes tempestuous, embrace, I've grown and blossomed from a green intern to the editor of your food and living channels, and you've rewarded me with your support, comments, and continuous inspiration.  But now it is time for me to spread my wings and move on to new territories.  I will always appreciate everything you've done for me.  I will still be here, lurking in the forums, popping up in your recent feed, featuring your awesome projects, and occasionally feeding you a new recipe of epically unhealthy proportions or gratuitously kitten-themed craft project.  So this is cheerio, but not goodbye. I hold all of you in my heart, and I am not going far.  You will find me just across the internet at Betabrand.com, turning a new group of people's ridiculous concepts into ridiculously popular products and trends, just as we always have here. So be prepared for a stream of disco-fabric and other related Instructables as I transition into my new role managing the Thinktank division and test out new product ideas.  I promise not to stop making cupcakes, or putting bacon where it doesn't belong.  Be well, do good, and keep making awesome projects. All the best, Sarah

This process can take up to 48 hours. If after 48 hours or so your project has still not been accepted, then it did not meet all of the requirements for participation in the contest.  You will then need to make the appropriate changes to your project so that it meets the contest requirements and re-submit it to the contest.

Instructables in Edutopia

We got a nice mention in Taking Back the Class from July 2006 Edutopia. Some of the most intriguing aids reside at Instructables.com, a site produced by Squid Labs, a silly-sounding but serious organization staffed in part by alums of the MIT Media Lab. Instructables, part of the group's Engineering for Good program, tackles projects it hopes "will make a positive impact on the world," allowing anyone -- not just educators -- to upload detailed instructions on how to build or create a wide variety of projects. They're illustrated by photos or step-by-step drawings and include how to build a robot out of a computer mouse, how to craft a marshmallow gun, and how to create a helicopter toy.

Tell a Story about the Instructables Robot

You might have thought that we built The Instructables Robot, but we actually just discovered it in a corner under some junk one day when we were first building Instructables. We weren't really sure want it was, but after charging its batteries overnight, it turned on, its fan started humming, and it offered to help out. So, we put it in charge of sending emails, and as you know, it has really taken to its job. We're pretty sure the Robot is quite old, but every time we ask it about its past, it always begs off to go send more email. So what do you think is the Robot's story? Who built it? Did it build itself? What do you think it might do in the future? Why does it like the things in its favorites list? Where does it goes every Saturday night at 10:22 PM when we can't seem to find it?
