Welt Pocket

Would anyone be served by a welt pocket instructable? I've made these a bunch, and understand how complicated they can be to understand. But I'm not sure if there's an audience for it. Thoughts? Thanks!

Pocket BASIC??????

Help! I am way into BASIC. Lately, I have been wanting to make a little DIY pocket computer with a basic gray scale screen and nav buttons that can run simple  BASIC programs uploaded from my computer. I looked around Google to find somewhere to start, and found out that no one has ever attempted building such a thing before. One site suggested that I should look at mobile motherboards by TI and Atmel. However, when I arrived at the websites, I found a bunch of complex, expensive boards that have unnecessary fetures such as WiFi and touch. I need some help on what hardware configuration to use (aka mobile motherboard, chip set). Help!

A bed with pockets

So I was thinking about making a shred bed or some other shred furniture. The office has a ton (probably literally) of finely shredded paper that would make excellent stuffing. I was thinking, hey, I've got some old pants I could slice up and make a patchwork shred thing out of. Then I got to thinking, wouldn't it be cool to have a bed with pockets in the sides? You could stick your cell phone in there and charge it and it would be close enough to be loud enough to wake you up but not so easily accessible as to defeat the purpose of an alarm. It would look darn silly made out of pants, though.

How to make a pocket for dress shirt? Answered

I would like to add pockets to some ready made shirts I bought for my husband. (I had forgotten he only likes shirts with pockets....they were so nice that it flew out of my mind.) I don't really have enough material to cut a patch from the bottom of shirts. But I thought maybe I could add some sort of hidden pocket by making something like a bound buttonhole with a hidden pocket of a similar color in cotton. Does anyone have a solution? Thanks, Bratmamma

Would someone make an Instructable for a manly workshop apron?

I would like to know if any of our sewing experts can design a masculine apron for workshop use that could fit a large man with a 48 inch waist (121.92 cm).  It should be made with a strong fabric and a few pockets to store small parts. Your help is greatly appreciated since I have no experience sewing (although I have a sewing machine ready for use).

Pocket Siren updated!

I've just updated my popular Pocket Siren instructable with improved cutting files. The changes I have made are: Turbine blades widened at the base - massive amounts of use revealed a weakness in the base of the first version. Turbines engraved in the laser - rather than sanding them down, I placed a circle of engraving over the blades (watch your laser settings, make sure it's set to engrave). The axle is now also acrylic, not wooden, but you don't have to buy any acrylic rod! Lanyard/key-chain loop added to the central layer.

Any suggestions for a pocket sized, powered amplifier that can power said speakers? the amp and battery pack must be concealable in a suit.

Instructables is happy to announce the prizewinners from Pocket-Sized Speed Contest!This has been a doozy of a speed contest with over 150 entries, many of them amazing. You blew us away with all of the cool things you can make that you can also fit in your pocket. A great job all around. There were a couple of interesting twists and turns here. For one, user PocketSized ran away with the votes. Apparently the name is a fitting one.The other thing that you might find a little odd is that the Instructable with the third highest pageviews is the winner. The #1 entry was disqualified since Brita filters aren't so pocket-sized. I tried it out and it wasn't comfortable and my pants got all soggy. It wasn't pretty. Don't worry, we'll still send IAMSatisfied something cool since it was quite good.The #2 pageviews would've been the winner except that it was also chosen as the random winner. This bumps the sweet engagement ring Instructable to the top spot.Thanks to everyone who entered. It was a lot of fun and this is one that we'll be doing again in the future. Now, on with the winners!

Epilog and Pocket sized electronics challenges

Hi, I would like to submit an instructable to the Epilog and Pocket sized electronics challenges. It is a spark/electric arc generator, which has many uses such as using it as a spark gap radio transmitter, igniting flammable gasses or liquids (camping stoves), or using the high voltage to charge capacitors. The circuit is based on that of a DIY stun gun, so the project could be used as a stun gun. In the rules it says the project can't be 'potentially dangerous'. So would this project be disqualified from the challenges for being too dangerous? I would of course warn people not to use it as a stun gun in the instructable.   Thanks in advance :) Detective Inspector Me
