Making a Prop Cryo-Pod

Hello, I am currently trying to decide how to build a large "cryo-pod" prop for a theatrical production. Essentially, it has to be a large tube that I can install some kind of a door/hatch in. It must also be able to fit a person inside it. I have a lot of ideas for making the circuitry and decorations, but I am not sure how to build the chamber itself. The budget is extremely limited. We are talking about 30-40 dollars maximum.  I was thinking of building a tube form and using papier mache, and sanding it smooth on the outside to create the cylinder. This method would take a very long time. Alternately, I was considering obtaining some kind of flexible sheet good and placing it over a frame. Does anyone have an experience in building large cylinders like this? Any recommendations on construction materials or techniques?

eXistenZ Game Pod build.

Ok, one of my idea for a current project is to recreate my own model/version of the game pod out of the David Cronenberg film eXistenZ.If your unfamilar, see the pics and video - Essentially the 'game pod' is a biological virtual reality games console. And i must say i am a fan of the film.Now, i need some help, both with ideas, and with build methods.Ideas- I require an idea as the the use of the device - eg, an external hdd enclosure, a wallet, what ever.- I Have a base that im going to use, in the form of a beach stone. So the size is 125mm x 125mmMethods- Although i have a base 'stone' i need to sculpt a little extra, to make the nodule like bits. and genrally curve the shape a bit, what can i use? would bondo do? and whats the UK equilivent?- I want to have a silicon like finish, like the film, i was planning liquid latex, is that a good idea? what else is there thats better?I would appreciate any help anyone can give.ThanksGmjhowe

Altec Lansing Speaker Control Pod ?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but im trying to build a new Controller ( Volume up, down, Bass, power, ect) for my speakers. Old pod broke and got thrown out some time ago and company stoped making parts. Im not a tech person but ill put down everything i know about the controller in hopes one can help me. Model was MX6021, It used 8-pin mini-DIN cable...It had volume +/-, Bass +/-, and most importantly it switched on the subwoofer which the speakers connect to. I really have no idea where to start on buying electronic parts..Thanks in advanced if anyone replys.. Here are some links for pictures.. vmart. pk/images/detailed/9/mx6021_5.jpg glidemagazine. com/hiddentrack/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Controller.jpg images.hardwarezone. com/upload/files/2010/01/67921c4ed1.jpg

iPod, YouPod, MePod, What Pod?

Being poor, I am pretty much a noob when it comes to the latest and greatest gadgets. So I need to ask a few questions: What is the best (for the price, i.e. the best value) in iPods? If they are pretty much similar in quality, then are there any features I should look for? If they are pretty much similar, is there anything I MUST avoid? PS: The new MAKE arrived (yay !). PPS: If this is in the wrong category, please move it for me, thank you !

i-pod webcam/ camera thing?

I recently got a shit webcam from my friend and took it apart and noticed the color of the wires were awefully similar to the ones on my ipod connector i recently had to rebuild. They both use USB! I spliced them together and while doing so, I thought to myself "self, how could i run it once i'm done? My question is, the rockbox program for ipod puts its programs on ipod nanos to play video, why not use this hole in the ipods security and replace the rockbox files with a webcam program to make the webcam attached connector functional?

Making a lightstand from a mono pod?

Hello all,  This is my first time posting on instructables.  I've found and used so many great photogrpahy ideas on here I figured someone might be able to help me out with a little problem I'm trying to solve.   I got 5 of these:;=10440897&PID;=1225267&nm;_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm;_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&Item;=N82E16830997069 I got all 5 of them for $5 total because of a $30 giftcard I had.  They were on sale for $7 each.   I'm trying to figure a way I can use these as lightstands for my speedlights.  I've had the thought of building an X type base out of wood with a bolt coming up through the base of the monopod but I was thinking of trying to find somethign that would be a bit more portable an X I could fold down somehow but that would still support the monopod.   I'd be grateful for any ideas?

Soundproof Sleeping Closure

Hello fellow instructables :) Right I need some help and advice on a design brief to help fix my problem. Problem - I live in a ground floor flat and there is 1 flat above me, 2 scum bags occupy it, a couple of 22 year olds and they have obviously never been taught consideration for others and they bang and thrash around all through the early hours of the morning. When they bang on their bare wooden floor it sounds like a heavy metal dumbbell coming through my ceiling and it wakes me abruptly and its ruining my life :( I've complained to the council the past 18 months but there not interested. They have not put any carpet down in their flat in the last 18 months and it looks like they have no intention of doing so (they can afford fags n booze tho), plus they have a baby due any day now, great.. so now there making their problems, my problem. Solution - The only thing I can think of is making a soundproof sleeping closure, a large box like a 4 poster bed but all sides solid made out of a layer of MDF then insulation then more mdf, but I have some questions before I start. How would I get adequate air in and out ? Would this even stop the banging on my ceiling waking me up ? or would it still penetrate the box ? How would I control the temperature, would it be too hot in there ? Something like the image below but more solid with a door. If anyone has any experience with this or input or any good ideas I'd be ever so grateful. Cheers in advance. Matt
