Toasting Marshmallows on a Jacob's Ladder Answered

Check out what the NYC Resistor hacker collective is up to! A bunch of NYC geeks & artists, doing weird stuff, gotta love 'em. The link contains a video, a bit choppy but still viewable.

Oh, and the marshmallows they toasted had actually been made by a member. (I wonder if they used [http:///id/Walnut-%26-Chocolate-Covered-Homemade-Marshmallows/ this recipe]?)

Photocopiers are serious business. The one at my elementary school would stink up half the hall, the whole teachers' lounge, and for about 15 feet outside the window. I was sent in to get some copies done when I went back a few years later to volunteer... it was like building a model airplane inside a small, unventilated closet. I nearly passed out.

I especially liked the idea of the Lillypad device and "wearable art" concept.
