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!

So the living dead are about to break through your door... you have no weapons (guns swords etc) only what you would find around the average english house... when all of a sudden... Deathclaw packs destroy all of the reanimated and come after you... what do you do?

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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v;=Df7UfYGn6lQ http://zombiesinbigsur.blogspot.com/

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.

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!

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!

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.

Topic by pastore michel 5 years ago | last reply 5 years ago
Okay, my idea is that in the event of the zombie apocalypse (or many others) I think it would be very handy to have a GPS-esque service. I've read that the satellites we use for GPS are decaying and will not be around for much longer than 20 or 30 years without repair or replacement. So, in the event that the zombies come and I manage to survive and, more importantly, thrive, I would like to be able to set something along these lines up. Assuming I have access to renewable power sources and the correct materials, how would I build something like this? My initial thought is to use radio towers for triangulation. I go to three existing radio towers, set them up with a power source, and set them to frequencies A, B and C respectively. Then i have a (preferably mobile) device that monitors the signal strength of those towers. Another option that springs to mind is that i might have multiple antennae that i can connect to a few feet of wire each and place around my device for added accuracy. If my idea is sound, I then will have a way to tell where i am, roughly. Of course, not only will I need a method of recording locations in a logic manner, I also have to worry about the accuracy of my readings, due to the limitations of my device/radio towers, possible weather conditions or even my physical location (valleys, cliffs, etc). I should add that I'm looking for a very simple reproducible device here, not a standard GPS with loaded maps or the like. I'm fine with having a receiver and a notebook for locations, or just marking them down on a physical map. I don't know much about radios or GPS, I'm afraid, and would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks!

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?

In case you have not heard the breaking news, our beloved Instructables Robot and its beloved family member Instructables-Robot have been captured by a dancing zombie horde. 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. The contest will be judged by Bilal's Undead Severed Zombie Head on Friday and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

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.

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.

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: http://www.flickr.com/photos/grow_power/sets/72157606960332823/ 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

My skills include: Screen Printing and breaking things. Here's a link to my featured Instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Puppet-theater-from-broken-monitor/ 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!!)

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!

I remember seeing a bot (a group of bots) on TechTV many years ago (had to have been... hell how many of you still even remember that great channel) where all the master would have to do is give the first bot directions, and it would just go near the other one (IR or RF) and it would pass on the message. All he did was give one bot the midi file for the star wars theme... and the bots organized themselfs to play the song with different notes divided out. He could basically tell them any command and they would work as a team to figure it out. I don't remember what it was called... they WERE cluster bots... but I thought he called it something like bee-bots or something... I call them zombie bots, because you "infect" one and it spreads it.... They couldn't be THAT hard or THAT expensive to make, after you have the basics down... Does anyone else know what I am talking about? Has anyone developed something like theses?
