Zombie Traps

In the spirit of Halloween and to kick of Season 4 of The Walking Dead, I came up with this idea for a zombie-proof house as a sort of design exercise. It also has the benefit of sustainable zombie disposal. See some Pros and Cons on my blog. Tell me what you think of my idea. Do you have any ideas for a fortress or zombie trap? Post them here!

How to Become a Zombie

Want to ditch this mortal coil, but not all the way? Curious to see what your face will look like as the flesh begins to peel off of it? Then you might want to check out Rob Sacchetto's site where you can submit a photo and he'll draw an undead version of you and send you the print. The sample pics on his site look suitably gross enough to merit the $80 price tag. Zombie Portraitsvia Drawn!

Zombie Costume Question

I am working on a soldier zombie costume, but people keep telling me that I look like a nazi soldier. They have me worried that my costume will be in bad taste, but I am not so sure as there are no actual nazi symbols on my costume. Should I risk looking like a nazi or should I try to distance myself from that? If you think I should distance myself from that, how would you recommend doing that? Some have suggested that I embrace it and wear a red armband, but with a mocking symbol, like a smiley-face or a peace symbol, a sort of mild satire.

Zombies in Big Sur

I found a blog of a guy who just finished living a whole year in a simulated apocalypse scenario. He posted a video every couple of weeks in which he tries to learn a new skill. There's surprisingly little content about zombies in any of the videos, so even if you're not into that, you can still enjoy it.;=Df7UfYGn6lQ

Pride and Prejudice.............and Zombies?

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is the pinnacle of Jane Austen's work, a multilayered comedy about a class controlled society, and slaying zombies. This book is really quite amazing, it is nearly impossible to distinguish Jane Austens writing, from that from quirk books. People having read the "real " Pride and Prejudice tell me that the book is hilarious, and "really kind of weird, " but if, like me you just picked up the book and decided to read it, you will find and epic rivaling "Z war" in hilarity and zombie mayhem. Please, but and read this book! And after you do, give it a rating here, 1 to 10.(1=epic fail, 10= MADE OF WIN) And don't forget to purchase the sequel on September 15th, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.

Budget for Zombie FX?

Hallloo. I am trying to come up with a budget for make-up and gore FX for a decently funded Zombie movie. Usually I work with an existing budget, and I've never done anything this extensive. There are 8 dessicated zombies, a few of their heads explode, one human head is destroyed with a sledgehammer, drill-bit in the eye, that kind of thing. Any advice, past experiences, memoirs, etc. would be wonderful. I'm a sculptor by training, so that's how I'm looking at this project. Like gross kinetic sculptures. Yikes, and away!

Assume for a moment that both vampire's and zombies exist, and also that zombie's disease is a blood borne one. If the vampire decides to feed and jumps a zombie does the zombie become vampireish or does the vampire, draining the zombies blood, become infected.Or does the zombie just die and the vampire ends up with indigestion?

Gift Exchange: Zombie Love Print

My skills include: Screen Printing and breaking things. Here's a link to my featured Instructable: What I'd like to make for someone: I'm currently working on a multiple color print of the cover of one of my favorite books, Breathers: A Zombies Lament as a gift to my soon to be wife!!  :)  I will have an extra one when I'm done. (Picture below) I'd be willing to make this size gift package for someone (choose all that apply): Medium, the poster print will be about 16 x 20 inches. It will come in a black wood poster frame. I'd be willing to receive a smaller or larger size gift package from someone than the one I make for someone else: Same size would be awesome. What I like: Anything unique or odd, I enjoy a lot of steampunk or old fashioned looking items. What I don't like: Spiders I absolutely can't have: (due to allergies, pets, etc) Spiders with wings (I fear that some spider will rapidly evolve, and sprout wings just to torture me) Type of thing I'd love to receive: Anything original, and awesome!! Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? No, only because I just lost my job and I don't know if I'd be able to make the shipping cost. (If some one from outside the US wants it I will gladly send it if they cover the shipping charge.) Confirm that are at least 18 years old or, if not, that you have the approval of a parent or guardian: Yes (In fact my birthday is next week, the big 25!!)

Zombie fiction: illegal in Kentucky.

A Kentucky student has been arrested under anti-terrorist legislationWinchester police say William Poole, 18, was taken into custody Tuesday morning. Investigators say they discovered materials at Poole's home that outline possible acts of violence aimed at students, teachers, and police.Poole told LEX 18 that the whole incident is a big misunderstanding. He claims that what his grandparents found in his journal and turned into police was a short story he wrote for English class."My story is based on fiction," said Poole, who faces a second-degree felony terrorist threatening charge. "It's a fake story. I made it up. I've been working on one of my short stories, (and) the short story they found was about zombies. Yes, it did say a high school. It was about a high school over ran by zombies."I originally found this story through Groxx. The article is here, and if you want to pass comments on to the relevant people, their contact details are here.

Legitimate botnet (zombie) farming?

If this doesn't exist yet, I have no doubt whatsoever that it's not far away. Is there a company doing legitimate zombie farming? ie, a cloud of computers running a local server which process data from a centralised distributor? People do it illegally, selling processing power from trojan infected machines, but is anyone doing it as a legal business? Imagine you could download a small application which sits in memory and draws off a certain percentage of your CPUs runtime, depending on the machine's usage. This processing power would form part of a cloud sourced supercomputer, with runtime sold to whoever. And say you were paid maybe a couple of dollars per 24 hours of processing, depending on CPU speed. Leaving a couple computers on 24 7 would add up to a not inconsiderable sum per month. You could salvage some old machines and leave them going in the basement. I've worked at animation studios, as an example, and for sure they would be keen to, rather than intermittently hire a room full of fast machines as a render farm, outsource it to a cloud. SETI did it. Like I say, if this isn't already being done, it will be soon.

As we looked over the zombie's ghoulish celebratory pictures, we can only wonder what must be running through our poor robot's mind. Perhaps you can look at this picture and figure out what our poor robot is saying. Post the caption as a comment in this forum. All are eligible to enter. Contestants are limited to three (and we mean three!) entries. The winner of this contest gets a copy of Electronic Gadgets for the Evil Genius.

Alert!!! Instructables HQ attacked by Zombies! Mass Casualties Reported!

A horde of zombies just broke into our office and attacked! Many, if not all, members of Instructables are seriously injured. Bilal and the Robot have been taken captive, and are presumed to be infected with the zombie virus. We are too afraid to attempt a rescue at this time.We bravely fought them off using marshmallow guns and pirate swords, but the tide only turned in our favor when one of the zombies hooked up some speakers and played "Thriller," at which point the rest of the zombies joined in the dance.We recognized many of the members of Three Rings and think they may have been experimenting with something more sinister than Puzzling Pirates. Perhaps our recent swashbuckling raid on their fortress led them right back to our HQ? It appears the zombie apocalypse has started. Prepare as best you can. Update: Maybe we should have warned the zombies they really didn't want Bilal?Update 2: We got Bilal back! Unforuntely, he returned in zombie-form, so I had to cut his head off.Update 3: The zombies sent pictures of the robot in captivity! More pictures of the zombie lair and robot here: Update 4: Live action video from the event was found and uploaded to youtube... what a horrific day:Update 5: The zombies have sent their reply video. Dancing, carousels, and brains. This video exposes it all. Here it is: Three Rings Zombie Attack on Instructables

ability of zombie in left for dead part 2

Smoker Appearance: An average-sized Infected with huge tumors all over its arms and face. Has a very long tongue as well. This tongue can be shed when the Smoker is injured, allowing them to get away. Sounds: Talk about an anti-smoking agenda. The Smoker makes all sorts of horrible wheezing and coughing sounds when idle. Launching the tongue creates a sort of slurping sound, and the music becomes dramatic whenever a survivor is being strangled to death. When they die, they explode with a puffing noise. Strengths: The Smoker is the longest-distance Infected and can easily separate groups of survivors through good use of its tongue. When a survivor is being strangled, they can't do anything to free themselves (much like the Hunter's pounce). This forces a teammate to run to the person and free them, potentially causing more problems for the survivors. They have a tendency to find the nooks and crannies where it is hard to see them, climb up on building, or move around in groups of regular infected in order to surprise the survivors. Weaknesses: In-between the Boomer and Hunter is where the Smoker's durability sits. They can only take a few shots before dying, making it essential for them to catch survivors off guard. When they grab a survivor, the survivor has a few seconds to fire at the Smoker before they become constricted. If they deal enough damage, the Smoker will let go and possibly even die. When constricting a survivor, any other survivor can bash or shoot the tongue or smoker to cause it to release the person they are strangling. Bashing the player counts as bashing the tongue, but shooting them does not. Special: Smokers are relatively harmless by themselves due to their weak damage output. However, much like the Boomer, they can turn an entire game around. If a smoker grabs and manages to strangle a player, it can force the other teammates to chase the player down and save them. On top of this, they often linger in large groups of common Infected, which will attack the strangled survivor and act as a shield for the Smoker. Tank Appearance: Muscle, muscles, and more muscles! The Tank wouldn't look out of place in Gears of War. They are gigantic, drag their knuckles along the ground, and run like apes. If you manage to miss seeing a Tank, you've got to be blind. A hilarious detail: Tanks have no lower jaws, so their tongues just dangle! Sounds: The Tank snorts, bellows, and generally sounds like an angry rhinoceros. The ground nearby trembles as they move, and the music gets very intense and action-oriented when one starts attacking the players. Crashing sounds are common as well, as they throw cars and chunks of landscape as well as rip apart doors. Strengths: Where to begin? The Tank is the single toughest Infected in the game. They can absorb an unholy amount of damage, forcing the entire team to work together to kill one. They can rip off chunks of the environment to hurl at the players, and will also throw cars. They can tear through certain parts of the environment, like pillars and barricades. Not even safehouse doors can stand up to a Tank. A player that is hit by a Tank will be flung, heavily damaged, and will be stunned on landing, unable to move. Weaknesses: A Tank can only take on a single survivor at a time, where all survivors can unload on them. They can't bash through obstacles, so walls and certain environmental objects will hinder them. They have to climb up like any normal Infected, as they can't leap. Any long-range attack can be easily dodged. They have a huge profile, which makes it almost impossible to miss them. Special: Tanks are big, dumb brutes, so use this to your advantage. They take time to find a target, and will get slowed down by environmental obstacles. With one person acting as bait, a Tank can be taken out extremely quickly as long as anybody, bait included, has a semi-automatic shotgun. Tanks are also highly flammable, and will burn until they die. Witch Appearance: Almost-naked, panting, gaunt, disturbing-looking woman with huge claws. Always has a red light on them, no matter where they may be in a level. Witches are the exact opposite of Tanks in appearance, being thin, small, and low-profile. Sounds: There is no creepier ambience in Left 4 Dead than that which surrounds a Witch. The Witch cries and sobs as long as it has been undisturbed, and the music becomes very creepy and disturbing as one gets closer and closer to a Witch. When they have been startled, it screams and chases down the offending survivor, letting loose random cries. Strengths: The Witch is the second-toughest Infected, next to the Tank. They also deal the most damage out of any Infected, as they are able to incapacitate (Easy through Advanced) or kill (Expert) any survivor with a single strike. They have great hearing, and any gunshots or explosions nearby will startle them, causing them to chase down the survivor that startled them. Weaknesses: The Witch will only chase down a single survivor before running away. The survivor which is closest and dealing the most damage is a target, but the one that startled the Witch will usually be the one that ends up taking the hit if it gets close enough. They're fast, but are slowed down a lot by doors and other obstacles. They can be sneaked by if the survivors turn off flashlights and walk instead of run. Special: The Witch is the only special Infected that can't be controlled by a player, for obvious reasons. A survivor with a semi-automatic shotgun can sneak up on a Witch (right next to one, in fact), point their gun at her, and unload a full clip into her before she can fully respond. This is the easiest way to take out Witches that are blocking essential paths, such as ones that are in subway cars in the second level of No Mercy.

I am a very unhappy zombie.

Look at me, I'm hideous! I tried to prepare everyone for the Zombie Apocalypse, but I published my instructable and it hasn't appeared in "Recent" yet! Since nobody was ready to combat the undead, I was overrun and turned into one of them!But seriously, it's been like eight hours since I published and it still hasn't shown up. The last three or four 'ibles I made did the same thing, one of them took a day and half to show up. By this point it won't even show up in the first page of recent instructables. How am I supposed to get people to see this if it takes this long to show up? What gives?!?!? ****UPDATE 7/17 @ 7:40pm****Well, it STILL hasn't been added to the recent list! Now I guess it'll have to wait until after the weekend. Grumble grumble grumble . . . ****UPDATE 7/18 @ 9:40am****Thanks to Lemonie for spotting my instructable . . . buried eight pages deep in the recent list! Somehow, despite the fact that I didn't publish until thursday 7/16 (I didn't even take any of the pictures until wednesday) it says I published it tuesday. It's entirely possible that it's been on the recent list the entire time, just pushed three or four pages back from where I expected to find it. I don't know what's going on here, but I don't like it. I may try to unpublish it and then republish as an entirely new instructable to see if it'll get bumped up, but I don't know. What if it gets caught by the filters again and doesn't show up for several days?If any of the admins read this thread, please look into this for me!
