Playing Games In Session

Think students playing games on their laptops during class is bad? What about parliament members playing games during government policy sessions? The parliament of Bhutan, a small country in the Himalayas, has decided to ban laptops so that lawmakers will stop playing computer games while the Bhutanese parliament is in session.It is not however true that we were always playing games, said the MP, who is from the governing Druk Phuensum Tshogpa (DPT). We need the laptops because that saves us the trouble of having to carry huge amounts of paper and documents.He makes a good point: playing game after game of tic-tac-toe does require a huge amount of paper. What games do you think they were playing?

Play a Collaboration Game?

Oh my... Coffee beans!.Let's try this again! ..Challenge: Oh my! I lost my precious special coffee beans! I need to travel around the world searching for them. Will you help me stay awake for that? I will need loooots of coffee for my mission ;)Design a new coffee filter! Collaborate and innovate together - find a new way to filter coffee. Do not use anything expensive and try not to create too much waste ;) Let's go!... How does this game work: 1) First collect ideas for a coffee filter here under this thread until Monday, March 04th midnight PST - write down what you think would work, freely. (Add in to the already collected ideas - challenge yourself!)2) Look at and discuss others' ideas here, while they are being collected.3) Select one idea that you like, and form teams - prototype together, form an Instructable, make it Collaborative. Or alternatively, just add in your existing Instructable and make it Collaborative. Innovate together! A very rough prototype that shows the principle is sufficient. The time limit for this step is to be announced - not more than several days. 4) Collect the 'ibles here under this thread (or I could make a collection of 'ibles if possible) 5) Let's vote and see which new coffee filter is the best! Try to win the most votes and be on the 'podium'!...I will always be around here - you could ask me anything and also give feedback :).Disclaimer: This is part of a research for my PhD at Istanbul Technical University, department of Industrial Design. The research is strictly non-commercial, only for academic purposes and not financed in any way. The only objective of this game is to encourage collaboration and innovation in communities, in a playful and fun way. Your ideas and identity will not be used or revealed, and your privacy will be protected. Thank you. e-mail:

MakerBot plays Tetris

YouTube user belakor110 has posted this video of a MakerBot playing the Tetris theme. According to the brief description, this is done using gcode. This reminds me of the song "A Simple Text File" by Man or Astroman? Check out that video here as well. The video is just a still image, but I can vouch for its legitimacy. I saw the band play the song in concert with just a beaten up ImageWriter II in front of a microphone. via adafruit

Games for LAN play?

So, I live in a dorm now with a few other students. We'd like to play a game together on our personal laptops, but we don't know which ones would be good to play. Requirements: 1. No internet access required. 2. 2-16 players or more. Multiplayer-only games are OK, but single player would be nice too. 3. Mainstream games are fine, but if you know of any indie games, that would be even better. 4. It doesn't have to be new. In fact, from 1990-2008 would be just fine. 5. Most of all, it has to be fun to play. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Computer not playing sound? Answered

Whenever I play music out of my computer, a thing keeps popping up called Realtek HD Manager saying that I've plugged something into the microphone socket! I've checked both of them (Front and back) and nothing is in them! So I disabled by going: Start > Run > 'msconfing' > Startup, then disabling it. It told me to restart my computer for the changes to work, and when I booted it up again it had no sound, so I turned it back on and rebooted the computer and it still dosen't work! And yes, I have checked all the obvious things like if the sound's muted. Thansk, Flannel UK

Playing with mains electricity

I'm of the belief that most of us have played, in some form or another, with mains electricity. Whether it be fixing the power cord we accidentally cut in two, or juicing up a computer psu... So. I'm wondering if any of you have an electrician's licence. Reason I'm asking is that in Australia, doing anything with mains power requires one. Playing with power sockets, power plugs or cords, installing lights etc. Firstly, do you have this problem in the US? I've seen a few projects which involve light fittings and licence-requiring activities, and I have to wonder whether you're all licenced to do this sort of thing, or whether you're all licenced. And just thinking that there could be a potential loophole in the regulations... If you hooked up two ac transformers to step down the step back up, so you're where you started, technically, you're not running off mains power... if you get my drift. anyway. you all ignore this little aspect of the law or what? cheers

Play With Your Food Challenge: inquiry re: our rejected "Squash Pie" video entry

Dear Carleyy, Thank you for your email (copied below). We have carefully reviewed the instructions/regulations for the Play With Your Food Challenge contest at We have scrutinized our own entry, and we are unable to see why our entry, "Squash Pie," has been rejected. We understand that the finalists have been chosen and are currently being judged. We kindly request that you review our entry. If our entry does not meet the criteria, please let us know how or why it has been rejected. While my sister and I participated in the making of our entry, it was my 10 year-old niece, Miele, who worked extremely hard on the concept for the video, the script, and the food preparation. She also edited the entire video on her own, including completing extensive research on non-copyrighted music to include. This was a self-directed project, and she was excited and proud of her achievement. We were all surprised and deeply disappointed to have been rejected without a clear explanation or reason. I have cc'd my niece and sister on this email; while I understand that you have many entries, and cannot respond to each entrant individually, we are very much hoping for a personal response, whether our entry is reconsidered or not. Thank you for your time, Becky Cook On Tue, Oct 4, 2011 at 11:57 AM, Instructables wrote: Hi beckycook, We regret to inform you that your project "squash" pie does not fit the requirements for the Play With Your Food Challenge.

Gif played after a click

Hi guys!It looks like there has been a new update on the site recently, and now we have to click on the gifs to see them.What do you think about this? Do you click on them? Or do you prefer the look at the pictures?I am wondering because I usually use a lot of gifs (sometimes 1 or more for each step), and maybe it is time to change this. So there are 3 possibilities:continue to load the gifs with the images (and click on them)replace the gifs with more images, and more detailsembed the gifs in the text, this way they automatically play once the page is open.What do you prefer?

Can people please give me links to free-for-use 7-8 minute monologues for young woman?

I'm looking for a 6 or 7-8 minute monologue or one-woman play to be performed by a young woman. I'd prefer for it to be modern (within the last century) and to have some kind of meaning or something that people can connect or relate to. I've looked all over the internet for something that fits this description, but I've had no luck as of late. I'm 16 years old, so that may you to know what I'm looking for. Please and thank you! If it's shorter than 6 minutes, it's out, but no longer than 8 minutes (a few seconds over is okay).
