Real-life Back to the Future 2 hoverboard

French artist Nils Guadagnin has built his very own hoverboard based on the hoverboards in Back to the Future II. It's pink, it's a board, and it actually does hover when placed on its platform. Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air. The board is hovering with the help of two CLM-1+ levitation modules made by Crealev. Hoverboard Project via geekologie

Game pieces for life size Operation game

This is for a halloween carnival and will be used over and over again, so I would like for it to be fairly sturdy.  I thought of cutting insulating foam and using it, but it would probably break easily.  Other ideas I have had: bondo plastic styrene sheeting (yard sign material) cardboard plastic dip (dip foam pieces in it?) great stuff foam I would like for the pieces to be white, fairly sturdy, about 1" thick or so.  Nothing is jumping out at me as inexpensive and durable.

When life gives you lemon pips...

A friend just brought us back a lemon she picked (with permission) from a grove in a convent garden in Rome. It was very tasty, and had five pips in it.What is the best way to grow these pips on into a new bush or tree?I don't have a greenhouse, but I do have windowsills. I eventually plan for the bush / tree to end up in a large pot.(I know I could google it, but do you happen to know whether lemon trees have gender? In other words, would I need two trees to get fruit?)

Existentialists, how do you find a meaning for life? Answered

Lately (and by lately I mean for a while now) I have been experiencing existential/nihilist/teen angst. I'm totally detached from reality, especially the future which is what I'm supposed to care about, what everyone cares about. I think that life is essentially meaningless, it came to exist because of a fluke, and it continues to exist because perpetuates itself (evolution). So I've been trying to make life matter to me, existentialist style. But I can't seem to get the knack of it. I don't know what I want out of life, I'm not clear on what exactly there is to want....I'm not even sure that anything is real except me. Lately I've taken to telling myself that things are meant to be, and there is a greater purpose, I just can't comprehend it yet.....which may be the most ridiculous thing I've ever told myself..... I know most people think this stuff, but don't take it seriously. They just go on living. But I just can't....perhaps because these abstract thoughts seem as real to me as everything else (not very)? Sorry if I'm totally incoherent.... HELP. please?

How could you hack an incandescent light bulb to last longer?

I found a youtube video (can't find it now) that showed how to attach a silicon diode to the cap of a bulb before inserting into the socket. Apparently this reduces the power so the filament burns cooler and lasts for several years in constant use. However the video wasn't very clear, especially for someone like me who knows little about electronics. Could someone do a fool-proof hack instructable? There was also mention of a commercial version which I can't find anywhere. It was a diode-cap combo that you place between the bulb cap and the socket. Or are there any other ideas? It would be timely with all the health concerns over CFLs and the imminent  lack of availability of incandescents! With thanks.

Vinyl Clocks - easy simple custom goodness.

Me and Fungus Amungus share a common obsession interest. We have both created clocks. I must say, I do enjoy a good clock. I like something a little different, and a bit unique, I'm also a sucker for a perfect motion and quiet mechanism.These Vinyl Clocks add the ultimate and easy way to create your own personal clock based focal point, each kit comes with a set of pre-cut vinyl stickers, and a clock mechanism. The idea being that you can arrange said items onto a wall to give your own custom look. I think its a great idea, the plus side of the kits is that the selection of shapes and numbers is really good, a simple housing for the clock mechanism would have been nice.Obviously, this would make a great DIY project, either using a laser cutter, or a combo of a scalpel and patience. I recently purchased a Karlsson which features a small simple design perfectly suited to a project like this!Artstick Online Via Gizmodo

How do I ask an older girl? Answered

Ok so, there is this girl and she is 19 years old. I am 6 years younger than her and I barely said ANYTHING to her. I know I don't like her for the way she looks, I know and I can feel that there is something inside of me saying that I want to have a real relationship with this girl. It kills me inside because virtually, there would be no way of us being a couple but I know in real life, anything is possible and age never matters when it comes to life/love. I am writing this to get opinions on how to approach this situation of asking her out. Please please please comment!!

Wine Bottle Terrarium - Great for homes, offices, studios alike!

Well, i must say, the internet has been rather slow of late, and i have not found anything good to share with you all for a while.Im not a massive fan of gardens, or plant life, i have a few almost dead cacti on my window sill..However, this great idea has got me thinking, and would be ideal for my home, or in the studio at work. Firstly, i love the idea of recycling the glass bottle, a clear bottle is recommended, but apparently the smokey ones do work also.The main bulk of plant life is in moss form. Which i think gives it kinda a mini landscape look.I would make a full instructable, but there is not alot to it (push moss into bottle). I also have enough projects awaiting write up!I would love to see any pictures if anyone manages one.Via, LifehackerThe original can be found at Dr VinoInspired by the work of Paula Hayes
