Gorilla tape

This may sound random, but I am super psyched about the gorilla tape that I purchased today! This stuff is technologically superior to any tape ever invented, and I can't wait to use it. If anyone wants to join a group about gorilla tape and how useful it is, I'd be glad to start one.

Duct Tape Armor

I'm planning (Read: Going forth with no idea what to do) on making a suit of armor completly made out of duct tape. (Partially made a gauntlet, so it might work) But here's the question I have; Should I post an instructable on each peice (Gauntlet, Helmet, Greives) by itself, or as one big instructable that might have a million steps (Okay, not that many)? I'm leaning more to the idea of one peice at a time, and then when I'm done just putting them all together into one big instructable. What do you all think? And is this project even worth doing? (Will add picture of sad gauntlet reject at later date)

Am I the only one getting fed up with duct tape?

I wondered whether I'm the only one starting to grow sceptic of duct tape. It doesn't work that well, it can't reliably stick anything to a wall reliably for more than 6 months, and when you take it off (or it falls off), it leaves you with whatever you taped with nasty slime all over the place. What are your views on duct tape?

Massive web made with packing tape

Design collective For Use/Numen used about 117,000 feet of tape to make this fantastic web in a former stock exchange building in Vienna. It's strong enough for people to walk on. In fact it wsa made for a dance troupe. “The installation is based on an idea for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars,” explains For Use’s Christoph Katzler. “The dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is a recording of the choreography.” Check out the link for more pictures and a video.

is there anything duct tape won't stick to? Answered

I'm planning to make a satchel bag out of duct tape and i've pretty much figured out the mechanics on how to make it. however, for my initial plan to work out, i'm gonna need a sheet of SOMETHING that duct tape doesn't stick to, or at least, doesn't stick to as well. i'm planning to lay on the strips of duct tape on THAT and then move on from there. so, any ideas? wax paper (like the yellow stuff used as backing for stickers)? paper rubbed with oil? a certain type of cloth? WET cloth (haha)? a certain type of plastic?  thanks in advance!

Great New Sciplus Products (not spam)

If you've never heard of American Science and Surplus, they're a neat online store that features all sorts of odds and ends. Instructables once had a contest sponsored by them, which is how I originally found them. This week they have some new products that seemed particularly useful to you all:Acrylic Easels - These look perfect for making a Laptop Bubble Stand without all the fancy bending.Aluminum Tape - If you want to make a solar heater or cooker, this looks promising for an easy to apply reflective backing.Polymorph has been featured in plenty of instructables. It melts in hot water, at which point you can shape it to you every whim, and then allow it to cool. It's almost like being a Jedi!

Tape cassettes. Hundreds of the things. Any ideas?

Ok, my husband is a hoarder. But only of tape cassettes. There are hundreds (probably thousands) piled up in our bedroom in boxes as we've just moved. We are without a loft space (we had one previously which had a lot of them in) so even my husband was shocked at how much he had when we moved. So! I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what I could do with them? Things I could make? Do? Anything?!  I'm definitely going to be making a few tape cassette purses I think! But I'm definitely up for a little help and ideas :)

Question Re: Installation

I have a few questions regarding a scultpure I am making- To keep it simple, let's say the sculpture is simply a rectangle, ~4'x8'. What I would like to do is set up eight motion sensors (one in each corner and one in the middle of each side) that when triggered activate a corresponding tape player with a tape loop inside to play on a central speaker unit. So the goal is simplest terms is for people to walk around the installation triggering a musical note and with enough people organize a composition or a chord. Each motion sensor would have its own respective tape player, but I don't have the funds to supply eight seperate speakers. I also don't have much money to spend on PIRs, however, ebay has a bunch of PIR home security sensors for around $5. This project is most likely going to be crude, so I'm not overly worried about how sloppy it may turn out. What I imagine is to have the tape players always on, always running their loops, and a way for their respective sensors to allow the sound to play through the speaker. The gaps I need filled- 1) Is it sensible to use the PIR sensors I'm finding on ebay? (Aleph XP-40, Ademco 998) 2)short of buying eight speakers, is there a way to hook up all eight tape players to a central speaker unit? 3) If I am making this overly complicated, might you know of a better way to accomplish the task?

How would you seal the seams of a clear plastic greenhouse?

I want to connect pieces of clear heavy plastic together to make a house-shaped greenhouse, without using tape. Would a hot glue gun work or would it melt the plastic? Could I sew the pieces together or would the needle holes cause ripping? I'm afraid to use tape because I don't think it would stay on long term. If anyone has done this successfully, please share how you did it. Thanks!
