Instructables... A TV show?

Yes, yes I know there was/is the Ibles TV streaming vids but...What if we have a proper Instructables TV show?In each episode the cast (who don't behave like a bunch of bumbling, mumbling, caffeinated baboons) can demonstrate how to do a few of the more popular ibles, and give some tips on DIY and whatnot.Authors of the ibles used on the show could get paid a small commision... *has vision of Kiteman rolling in a big pile greenbacks wearing bling-bling*... Or perhaps not.But I think it would be a good idea, it would increase traffic on the site, get more ibles submitted, and on the whole increase the popularity of Instructables. PBS or Discovery might take it up (I prefer PBS personally)...

Instructables on TV!

I just saw a story about the iRobot Instructables contest on TV, specifically about the winner's creation. The show is called Attack of the Show on G4 in the States and G4 TechTV here in Canada. I really can't say much about it, since I wasn't really watching that part. They did show "Instructables.com" though.

Looking back: the good, the bad, and the ugly

I thought a bit of reflection might be appropriate (and if not, tell me so and I will quickly remove what might be considered a waste of space and time): Not to start off on a negative foot, but this only came up recently, as I don't get to see much TV (probably to my benefit), and while scanning through the Online TV Guide, I saw this TV show title: America's Most Smartest ModelTo me, it is appalling that those producing a show on the "smartest" would commit such a mistake in English; and any model that appeared on the show without making mention of the title would, in my opinion, show that they are not as skilled as some 6th graders in the English language. On the bright side, I discovered Eureka! this year, and is about the only "fictional" show I can bare to watch. Lists and comments welcome !

Rube Goldberg TV Show Casting Call

This sounds like fun:A new Discovery Channel show is looking for teams of ARTISTS, SCIENTISTS, ENGINEERS, ARCHITECTS and DESIGNERS with experience in building RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINES. (Thanks to BoingBoing for the link!)More details:This show shoots in January in Los Angeles so the application process will be moving quickly.Super Rubes is a weekly one-hour show that follows a band of talented creators as they design, build, and set off a massive Chain Reaction Machine in front of a cheering crowd. The point of a Chain Reaction Machine is to do something very simple, like turn on a light bulb, using as many steps as possible. This is an opportunity for engineers to let their creative hair down and have some fun building a giant Chain Reaction Machine. Our team will take on impossible challenges (i.e. , Can you crack an egg with a human hair?) in a race against the clock.We are looking for fun, interesting, charismatic and outgoing individuals of all ethnicities and types 25-39 years old to comprise a diverse team of people who are involved in engineering/building: This means architects, engineers, scientists, pyro-technicians, art directors/designers, even professors or hobbyists who are simply passionate about these topics. We don't need an expert in every area, just someone who loves to design and build.The team should be a mix of a skills, a mix of personality types, and have a playful, funny camaraderie, so if there are existing teams out there, all the better, or if couples/triples have worked together and want to present themselves as the start of a team, we are open to that too.

Available ONLINE: 09/27/08 Tesla: Totally Awesome! HISTORY HACKER show

THIS looks interesting ! By Helen A.S. PopkinMSNBCupdated 9:05 a.m. ET, Fri., Sept. 26, 2008Circuit-bending YouTube star Bre Pettis doesn't want you to know that before making his History Channel pilot, he hadn't seen The Prestige.It's not that he purposely failed to catch Chris Nolan's 2006 adaptation of the steam punk novel about rival magicians starring Batman (Christian Bale) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman).It seems Pettis never got around to it. And by the time he started putting together History Hacker, premiering tonight at 8 p.m. and midnight, it was too late. ...At the turn of the century, electricity was magic, and really, it still is today, Pettis says."This (TV show) is for all the curious people out there who want to learn about the electricity that comes out of your wall. You can run a hair dryer from the electricity in your wall generated from a power plant far, far way. That blows my mind."...Here in the 21st century, Thomas Edison is the go-to guy when most people think of electricity. No wonder, given Edison's gift for self promotion and that he'd go so far as to electrocute kittens in public demonstrations meant to discredit Tesla's AC electricity in favor of his own DC current. (True story!)The LINK is HERE :-) To watch the entire show download from here.... be forewarned, it is REALLY long....

fishbowl with floating tv

Can someone tell me if this has already been done or where i might find some information? (beg pardon if answer is painfully apparent / easy to find and i didnt) backstory: i bought a house. in historical documents of 1905 a lighted "french" sculpture was mentioned. it is now gone but there is a convenient hole with a electric switch for said hole. i was thinking of what to put in the hole and i remembered watching the Chris Isaak tv show something like ten years ago and aside from the amiable goofball lead the show also had an wise advisor character who was dressed up like a mermaid and through the refractive index of a fishbowl and some other feats of science appeared to be floating and moving in a large fishbowl mounted on a table in a bar. question1; does anyone know the conditions necesary to set up a similar trick? maybe with a small tv, cell phone screen, clock, camera, or something else set up on the bottom of a glass ball with the image floating in the ball? question 2; could you set up a large trapezoidal cube made of glass on top of a flat screen tv on the floor where the light bending quality of the glass would redirect the image on the tv on all the surfaces of the cube? sub-question; could you make said cube with slightly convex surfaces to enlarge the image of a very small image projector?

Re-using Smart TV board from dead TV to make another TV smarter...

Hi, I have just bought LG 47GA6400 TV but I damaged LCD screen (CRD31092201) when I was assembling it.  I couldn't find low cost LCD to replace and I started wondering how I can reuse any remaining parts of this TV. Actually there are many people like me wondering what to do with dead Smart TV. Few years ago you would receive a standard advice – throw it away. But today Smart TV parts are powerful and with your help might be re-used again... Here is an example: My LG TV has mainboard with dual core CPU,  Google TV inside and cool remote controller with QWERTY keyboard and tons of applications.... I wish I could reuse it with other, not so smart LCD TV I have.  The only problem, how to connect Smart TV mainboard to a HDMI.  It doesn't have HDMI out, it has only input ports and one LCD interface cable.... Is it a crazy idea to convert LCD interface back to HDMI or VGA ? Can you create an instructables to show how to do that ?

SEEKING: I need a safe way/fx rig to explode a watermelon on a tv show...? Answered

Hi gang, I'm working on a show and I need to make a live audience believe that their 'telepathic psychic powers' have made a watermelon explode. I can build a booth with a lexan/plexiglass window so that watermelon doesn't spray the audience, this will also allow me to hide special fx rigs in it. I've done a somewhat similar rig before where I made the watermelon fall unnoticed through a trap door while a nozzle simultaneously sprayed watermelon guts against the plexi (so it looked like it exploded but didn't really). This time I'd really like to make it blow up.  I have a pyrotech license and have access to some basic explosives, but I think I would prefer to explore compressed air-based explosions. Anyway, any ideas would be appreciated. Please find a rough sketch attached. Many thanks! DAZU
