I was looking atthis and a while back i had a dream about stealing a four wheel bike and riding it down a hill, but the one in my dream had hydrolics and when i would go around corners i'd hit a switch and a front wheel would kick up and i'd hit 3 wheels around it. think they can make one with airbags or hydrolics?

looking for an idea

Hi all,  I am not sure this is the right place to pist this but couldnt find any better place. so as the topic mentions im looking for an idea... you are probably asking idea for what? so here it goes  im volunteering as a high school mentor for the FIRST robotics competition. this competition is awesome for kids - building a robot from nothing in 6 weeks to do a changing task... this is difficult even for experienced engineers.  anyway, we want to teach the kids some useful things before the competition starts, such as working with power tools, sensors, some basic electric circuits and mechanical elements (bearings, sprockets, gears etc.) we tried lectures and classes but it doesnt quite do it,  so i thought a good idea would be a nice project that might combine all of the topics mentioned above. so where do i go when i need a good DIY project? instructables! i browsed around but couldnt find something that was exactly what i was looking for...  so can anyone help with an idea?

Looking for ideas?

I am looking for ideas here from all you "experts" (where an expert is described as - Ex (a has been) spurt 9 a drip under pressure)) Nothing like insulting the unpaid help! before they start :-)  happy New year everyone. OK A friend has a model of a fair ground ride, this is a steam yacht, he wants to animate this and would like the motion to be realistic at the scale size. He had tried a number of mechanical solutions, cranks etc but they all give a jerky motion and the real thing is very smooth. Any suggestions. I am inclined to think this is a micro processor solution with either a suitable servo motor or similar driven to mimic the inertia of the real thing. ideas folks?

I am trying to make a system that connects to a wire and on the end of the wire is a resistor of some size then it comes back to the box im trying to make and displays a light saying 1. for wire 1. Then move to the next wire and check it and it would display a 6 for resistor system 6(different size resistor for each number) . Check picture for better understanding...

Looking for a thermostat

I am a science teacher and need help finding a thermostat to fix the department's water distiller. It looks very similar to the "Waterwise 9000 contemporary distiller" but is slightly different in appearance. The basic operation is you fill the reservoir and turn it on, the water boils and is then condensed and drips into the bottle that slides into the front of the device. When the heater reaches a certain temperature a thermostat turns on the cooling fan, when the device cools to below that temperature the cooling fan turns off. There are lots of warnings about running it without the fan because it will burn out the heater. I have tested the heater and it works fine, I can bypass the thermostat and the fan works fine, but the thermostat no longer switches on the fan. If I can find a replacement thermostat that should fix the entire distiller but it seems to be a custom order only for the manufacturer who wants you to buy a whole new distiller. Can anyone suggest an appropriate substitute? The code on the side of the thermostat is:  36tme02 22471 f150-15f p185-97 a0615 I found a similar image on the emerson site for a 36T thermodisc thermostat Does anyone know how to figure out the switching temperature from the code from the side of the thermostat? Any suggestions are appreciated!

Looking for thoughts.

My PC wnt a bit wonky this morning.  Mouse pointer moved around just fine but the system wouldn't recognize any clicks. Well at first i could click on the web browser and open a new tab but that was it. I restarted the system and had the same problem. So i wasn't able to lick to log in. So i tried another mouse and got the same result. Then i tried both mice on different USB connection both on the front and rear of the system. No change. Out of frustration i slammed the mouse down on the keyboard tray a couple of time and then everything started working fine again. Any thoughts on what happened? I suspect it's an issue with the keyboard. Being a wireless keyboard that came with a wireless mouse i think the keyboard had something to do with it. I've had an occasion where the keys stopped working on the keyboard till i moved the receiver around a bit. oh well.

are real guns looking to much like toys?

Guns are starting to look like toys. yes, a pink pistol is cool, until some kid thinks its not real and starts pointing it at there friends and laughing. i mean, what is the point of making a real pistol look like a toy? that does not teach kids anything. i mean, what kid is going to think that some pink thing can kill him? that green glock is real! it shoots real bullets and everything. police are not even able to tell the difference from a fake gun and a real gun! how are police supposed to know if "that kid" running down the street has a real gun or not? yes, i know that the hello kitty gun is cool, but what is some kid that gets a hold of that going to think? there going to thing that its just some toy and accidentally shoot some one. i might make guns out of knex, but i know that i will not kill anyone with them. painting a gun like a toy just goes against common sense, we used to be concerned about toys looking like real guns, now guns look like toys.

What are judges looking for?

I'm curious about the judging process for contests. Most contests seem to have pretty loose rules and are judged without clear criteria. I put a lot of time and effort into my entries, and many of my instructables get featured, but I've only been a finalist once. If I knew better what judges were looking for, I could target my efforts better. Any suggestions, or could judging criteria be posted somewhere? Like are they looking for the most off-the-wall ideas, best photos, clearest explanations, etc.?
