Best of the Smallest

No I'm not talking about those annoying one shot noob guns. I'm talking about true trigger, multi-shot, pistols that are decent for their size. What are your best tiny guns? I want to see just how small a gun can get and still keep a good amount of features. Mine is based off of the TDS. It loads 5 dark greys, has a true trigger, and features a firing pin lock. Let's see if you can beat that! I'm JK I'm sure someone will. I made my gun only to be as small as posible so it shoots only like...2 yards/meters depending on the rubberbands. And if anyone hasn't then I also have a mini challenge. Let's see who can make the smallest slide action pistol with a magazine!Also for anyone wanting to build the Mini TDS visit knexsuperbulderfreak!

Smallest Truegger Gun

I made this just for lols. You could probably make this design even smaller or make another design that's smaller. I'd explain it to you but I'm sure you have the 8 pieces required to make this and the 10 seconds to put it together. Surprisingly it gets like a good two meters. Maybe a last move of desperation in battle? Say you're going to ally with someone and as you're about to shake ha--BAM! lolz lik omgz uber pwnge.

World's Smallest Electronic Shocker?

A few days ago, I had built two really tiny electronic shockers, they are smaller than a penny... The shockers I had built, they operate on a 1.5v battery and gives out about 450v at short circuit of 18mA.So, what I am really asking is "is this the world's smallest electronic shocker?", I had done some research about if they are any electronic shockers that is smaller than mine, but I did not find any results... So I am asking you if you know any electronic shockers that is smaller than mine...Also I gave my shocker some more input voltage to see what happens... When I gave it 3v, it gave out about 900v (wow!). And at 4.5v input, it gave out about 1200v (BIGGER WOW!!!). I want to know how much voltage it gives out if I had given it 9v power, but I cannot risk doing that, because I might break my multimeter (it can measure maximum 1000v), I will have to build my self a high voltage probe...Heres the instructable... How to build the World's Smallest Electronic Shocker!!!

Alright, I was messing about with my knex, attempting to make a knex gun with a removable mgazine. I had made the clip and I then noticed my knex book-end that I made ages ago. I noticed that my knex gun clip would fit inside it, so with a little modding I think I have come up with the worlds smallest knex gun with a removable clip. It's roughly 12x8x3.5 with the clip in, and 12x6x3.5 without. Please post any atempts to beat this or correct me if I'm wrong becuase I have not researched this so it might not be the smallest.

I'm just wondering what's the smallest thing I can use to make an 0603 smt LED flicker (not blink/flash)? I love the look of simply having a bad connection to the battery, but sadly that's not a very good or reliable method.

World's smallest stop-motion animation.

Professor Fletcher's invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm girl called Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world. All the minuscule detail was shot using CellScope technology and a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics. More cool stuff - the film's heroine, is printed.  Too small to be positioned by hand for each frame, multiple versions of Dot were created in different poses with a 3D printer (so, presumably, files exist for you to print out your own authentic film starlet?) See more projects and how the 'Dot' film was made at Nokia or Facebook. Yet another video that won't embed

World's smallest (manned) helicopter ready for a spin.

Those of us who've been dreaming of cheap personal air travel in the Buck Rogers, sci-fi jet-pack mode should turn their eyes towards Vinci, Italy on May 25. That's when Gennai Yanagisawa, inventor of the tiny GEN H-4 personal helicopter, will be taking his lightweight 165-pound whirly-gig on a demonstration flight.Why Vinci? According to the 75-year-old Yanagisawa, "Since the concept of our helicopter came from Italy, I always wanted to take a flight in the birthplace of da Vinci." Indeed, Leonardo's famous notebook drawings from 1493 show an "ornithopter" with a screw-like rotor. Like da Vinci's pioneering design, Yanagisawa's GEN H-4 has no tail. Instead, twin counter-rotating propellers cancel out the torque that requires single-rotor helicopters to have a perpendicular tail rotor.The GEN H-4 personal helicopter is actually available for purchase now, though Yanagisawa's company (located in the Japanese city of Matsumoto) has so far sold only six (2 in the USA).The cost for one is a reasonable $58,250 and once airborne, the GEN H-4 can fly at a somewhat sedate speed of 31 mph - slow yes, but probably faster than rush hour traffic. Veni, vidi, volanti!It's the perfect commuter vehicle! Land on the roof of your office block, maybe it folds up, but certainly just push it into the corner to make space for your workmates to land. Sure, it only does 31mph, but it can go in a straight line, over the stationary traffic.Story on InventorSpot

most simple and smallest way to charge a 6kV capacitor?

Hi again, I need some ideas on what type of DC-DC or DC-AC converter I can use to convert 9V into 6kV. the 9V will be a standard 9V battery. The output current doesn't need to be high. It's for charging a 6kV capacitor, and this May take a few seconds. It doesn't need to be charged in a few milliseconds. My own suggestions are these: - DC-DC booster (switching a coil to get high voltage spikes) but these only generate 200V max I think - DC-AC inverter like those small CCFL inverter circuits - Flyback - not compact enough - booster or inverter connected to a marx generator - but also not compact enough - ... any other ideas? It also doesn't matter if the output is AC or DC, I'll just add a HV diode to rectify it. Although, that also takes some space and it has to be Really compact. I know that converting 9V into 6kV might not sound like a simple thing, at least if I want to do it in one stage, but I've seen videos where people convert the voltage from a 1.5V battery into 4inch sparks. (that was with a marx generator too though).

Looking for the smallest wide angle lens I can find

Premise: I have a droid incredible and I love taking pictures with its awesome 8MP camera.  I don't like its depth of field however.  I'm sitting here right now, looking at the camera enclosure, and I'm wondering if I might be able to pop open the red dome of the camera and slide in a tiny wide angle lens.  I've seen the cellphone wide angle lens kits you can buy for things like your iphone, and I actually did buy one for my Zi6.  Worked amazingly well, but even in that small form factor, it sticks out too far for me if i were to use this on my droid inc. Objective: I'm looking for an elegant solution that keeps the wide angle in the enclosure, and can't be knocked off or removed while in the pocket. How feasible would this be?  Would it be possible to find a small enough piece of glass that would give a wide angle view in such a small form factor?  I'm just guessing here, but I'd say the diameter would be 8mm and probably 2 or 3 mm in depth.  Thats pretty tiny... Anyway, I just wanted to get some suggestions from the DIY crowd.  I'll include some pictures of the camera's enclosure to take a look at. Thanks.

what are the part numbers of the components used to make the worlds smallest shocker?

Hello, in plasmanas instructable, how to make the worlds smallest electronic shocker, he does not mention anywhere the part numbers of the components, and only asumes that all camera components are the same, which i have now discoverd are not. anyways, recently i have built this tiny shocker 5 times, 2 times i used no solder as i was puzzled as to why it wouldnt work, all 5 times it didnt work. now, recently i discoverd that the 5 pin transformer used has 200-300 ohms of resistance between pin 4 and 5, and i have discoverd, that every single transformer i have pulled from a camera, does not, wheras infact it has 0.4 ohms. now unless his results are innacurate, this tells me that his transformers are totally different to all of the ones i have. and i have quite alot, even ones from polaroid cameras, supposedly the only ones that actually work. now, what i want to know, so i can get them on ebay, what are the part numbers or serial numbers of the transistor and the  5 pin transformer it seems impossible to harvest the correct ones from anything other than a single type of polaroid camera sold apparently only in america as luck would have it. otherwise, if no-one knows what the part numbers are, are there any other types that would work?

Micro LEDs... How can I power them in the smallest footprint possible???

Hi - I've been a "member" for 5 years now, but unfortunately never submitted projects... I'm more of an observer than a teacher :) I have this project I've been thinking of for quite some time now, but I simply cannot come up with a way to make it real. It's pretty simple, I just want to be able to light up an extremely small LED in a very small amount of space. But, I'm finding the power source is the headache. I wanted to get input or suggestions from anyone willing to share/help me! Basically, I have a 5mm diameter space (x approx 7mm high) to work with... and this would be to house the LED, power source and any type of on/off control or switch. My initial thoughts were toss in a micro LED, run it off of a wireless coil or super small battery and control it with a magnetic latching switch for on/off control. But, since the original idea popped up, it appears for wireless power the coil would need to be too large to fit in this space. For battery power, I've found very small 1.5V watch batteries that I could stack in a pair for 3V, but I've learned they would likely only run an LED for about 15-20 mins before they'd die. If they were wireless, I'd want some free range of motion and distance on the LEDs, being able to light up at least 6 ft. or so from the power source, if possible. This is driving me crazy! Can it be done, without costing a ton of money to develop?
