Make a stamp disappear?

I'm planning a mystery dinner party. There will be a postage stamp on display. I have a way to trigger a lights-out remotely (just by plugging the lamps into a remote-control switch). During the blackout, which will last a few seconds until I can "find the fuse box," the stamp needs to disappear. I could of course just walk over and steal it myself, but I'm looking for other suggestions. Print the stamp with some kind of ink that will vanish if hit with a camera flash? Some sort of motor-and-string attachment that could pull the stamp into a hidden chamber in the display case?

A more efficient way to stamp paint

Hi all! I have been working on a crowd source campaign for elaborately designed dice for a while now and have a problem with my home manufacturing process...hopefully, someone can give me some ideas. I need to find a quick and efficient way to apply paint to the raised surfaces of the dice faces. You can see in the rendered pic the 3d printed file that I'll be making the mold from. I made the numbers extend out instead of going in to simplify the painting but need to get down a system of applying the paint. I was thinking some sort of stamping but thought that was only good with ink. Any input is appreciated...

HELP with Basic Stamp 2 programming!!!

I am working on a project which involves usage of a Basic Stamp 2 module. I need your help because I'm a newbie and I don't know hot to program it yet to do the job. I want every time the right (or the left, it doesn't matter) built-in touch sensor is pressed, the right (or the left, it doesn't matter) motor to be given power for 5 times with a pause of aprox. 1 second between each time (see picture), and then stop.I would really appreciate that if you could help me. Please post your program, or pm it to me.ThanksP.S. Be careful! I DO NOT use servos! I use simple DC motors with a driving module! Here are the microcontroller ports for each motor and touch sensor:Left motor: ports 3 and 5 of the X7 extension busRight motor: ports 14 and 15 of the X7 extension busLeft touch sensor: port 4 of the microcontrollerRight touch port: port 6 of the microcontroller

If you have a BS2 and see it on sale again over at Parallax check it out. The only downside is the software is windows only, so mac geeks like myself will have to use a VM. -Joe

'ServerBot'

I was inspired (and pretty amazed) at the ServerBot instructable that someone had made for the iRobot Create challenge (LINK). So inspired, in fact, that I would like to try to make one. The problem is, I have a low budget, only knowledge in Basic Stamp 2, and I have some, but not many, types of sensors. I am almost sure this is possible (even remotely, at least) with the basic stamp 2. I have some of the ideas for the coding in my head, and some idea of how to make it. If I do follow through with this, I will make an instructable on it. But I need some ideas. Is this truly possible with a basic stamp 2? Elaborate, please! Credit to the below picture goes to JoeCreate who made the robot (LINK).

Sticky Note Holder

I'm very intimidated to post on this forum with all you geniuses but here goes. This is an acrylic holder that you can get from any craft store. I always love this rubber stamping technique as it is so easy yet comes out so pretty every time.  All you do is dry emboss a background word stamp with white emboss on white watercolor paper then stamp your image over top.  I wet the ink and add a few different colors on top of each other so it looks like an actual watercolor painting.  You can fleck some wet ink for an artistic effect too.  The paper underneath just slides in. The pen is a Pentel pen so you can open it and put whatever paper you'd like inside. I used a small piece of clear velcro to hold the pen on. Embellish as you wish and voila a beautiful sticky note holder. This technique is great for cards and scrapbooking.
