Infrared Beam Burglar Alarm

Could someone please tell or show me a fairly inexpensive way to throw an infrared beam across my office and once it's tripped by an intruder an outside alarm or siren (I mean the loud ones-like you can hear several blocks away)would go off. I'm so impressed by the quality of minds on this website. I know someone can probably help. Bless You All.Thank You So Far!

Knex Concept : True rifle

This is something I made when I was trying to make a K'nex rod spin in flight. I know there are true rifles like the Tempest, which uses a oodammo, and I know someone else twisted a rod to make it spin. This thing should be able to shoot normal K'nex rods with no modifications. I just built this, but I didn't make it into an entire gun. The red rod in the pictures is the ammo. This uses a K'nex wind up motor to spin the ammo. When you stick the ammo into the motor, it is like a bullet lock. The thing in the third picture is like a ratchet. It keeps the rod from spinning. It would have to be connected to the trigger, so it lets the bullet spin just when the ram hits it. Someone else could make a gun with this idea, but please give me credit for the idea.

What number are you?

With almost seven billion people alive on the planet, the BBC have produced a fascinating little widget for working out what number person you are.  All you have to do is input your date of birth. As you can see from the chart below, I was the three and a half billionth person on the planet when I was born. The set-up will also tell you how fast your home country's population is growing. What's scarier, though, is the data you get for today (27th October, 2011): as I type, almost 8.5% of all the humans to have ever lived are alive right now.  To put that in perspective, if the human population was stable, and not rising, then all 83 billion of humanity's historical population would have been born in the last 1200 years. 0_o

sliding bulletin board... need help

Any idea on how I can make a track to attach to a wall to have a cork board that is able to be slid up and down over a dry erase board. It would need to "lock" in order to keep it in place when slid up but then easily able to be unlocked to slide down when access to it is needed. I imagine the tracks would be something like the ones that slide drawers on Ikea desks etc... sort of like this but perhaps vertically. http://www.whiteboardsetc.com/Horizontal_Sliders.htm Horizontal ideas would help as well as a second option Thoughts?

Custom Fish tank stand

I am creating a custom fish tank stand from 2x4s and sheet wood. I plan to paint it black but I ran into 2 problems when I decided I didn't want the hood that came with the tank. 1) The lighting.     I have a pretty good history with LEDs so creating the lighting will not be too hard, only real issue I run into is sealing the lamp. I plan to use an acrylic sheet with holes drilled for the white and blue LEDs. White for day and a row of blue for moonlight on a 3 way rocker. I just dont want water to penetrate the holes from the ports for the light to damage the components. 2) The filter.    This is where I am at a loss. I plan on making something similar to this: http://tinyurl.com/fishtankdesign But I have no idea how to an external filter rather than one of the regular table top aquarium ones that would not look very pleasing on a nice stand. Any ideas questions comments or concerns please ask.

I've seen some chairs/stools made from K'nex and I myself have recently made a bookstand out of K'nex. Where do you think such posts should be put? Is K'nex always going to go under K'nex? Or does what it is as a whole which decides where it should go? Currently you can only choose one category when publishing. So what is your opinion on this issue?

Awesome Uses For An Empty Room

I currently have a 2 bedroom apartment, in which the second room has zero use... I only got it because it was like 30 dollars more expensive than the 1 bedroom, that being said, I want to use my second bedroom for something and don't know what. I was thinking a project room... but I think I want something more creative then that. I am already thinking of removing the doorand replacing it with a secret mirror door so it becomes a "hidden room"... in this hidden room I was thinking of having a HAM Radio operation, with some other stuff... but honestly I just don't know what I want to do with it. If you had a spare room "collecting dust" what would you do with it? I finally don't have my mom telling me "you can't do that, thats silly" or anything like that... so wild ideas are acceptable! PS: I was just thinking, keep in mind this is an apartment, so I can't nail, drill, or do anything to my walls... and my noise level has to be somewhat low... Otherwise it would be a recording studio.

how can I make this pendant light?

I need a creative lighting solution to replace an old fixture with a pull chain, there is no switch in the wall to turn it on and off. I would like to safely build a light similar to the ones pictured.  I have rewired lamps in the past and this seems like it might be a similar project, but with a few adjustments like strain relief components as well. I have found several companies that sell keyed sockets with uno threads to attatch shade holders. There are also great reproduction cloth covered wires available. I have 2 great glass 2 1/4" shades I would love to use. If its possible to make 2 lights that can be operated by a key in their sockets so that the can be turned on and off individually, but wired together, and run through the same canopy and connected to the same box that would be ideal. Can anyone help me with this?

Ideas for a video game

I have been writing c# XNA games for Xbox 360, and I am currently working on a zombie game. Kind of a tower defense, with zombies. It is almost finished and I have been pondering what game I could make next. That is we're you come in. I was wondering if I could get some good ideas for an Xbox game. I would like a game that is fairly simple, and one that uses a random play environment. I am currently limited to 2d. I am planing to finish my previous game within about a month, so I would like to know what I am making next within about 4 weeks. Since today is January 30th 2012, let's say cut off is about February 30th. But the sooner the better. Of course, if I chose your game, you would get a free code for it if and when it is finished. Also keep in mind that I cannot make a game with copyrighted elements, like star wars or something. Try to be creative and come up with a good idea. Remember that i would prefer to make a game wih a random play environment  Thanks! This helps me a ton.

Illuminated bed

Ok I'm really kind of new to electronics but I'm going to throw out an idea and if anyone could help me with this I would be greatly appreciative. I'm building a platform bed and I saw this picture when looking for ideas I instantly fell in love with this lighting. BedBut here is what I was thinking, what if I do my room in a different color? How could I make it look good? Then I thought RGB. Now what Im thinking is using Red Green and Blue Led's each I would imagine each would have to be on a different circuit and hook into some type of controller that can modify which one is brighter. I would think there would be some type of board I could hook up via usb and some software to change values of light. So if anyone has suggestions on what size LED's, resistors, or what kind of board I would need Please let me know I really am lost as to where to start. Also about how many would i need of each to have a good glow like this if its any help Im going to be using a queen size mattressBed

box(es) for sub(s)?? How many? What size? Here's some measurements.

So... Got some subs I had lying around: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_500SWE1042/Alpine-SWE-1042.html?tp=111&tab;=features_and_specs I am trying to figure out if I should vent (I don't think I should from research) and if I can do them in a single box or if it's better to put them each in a box. I also haven't found out if I should JUST double the volume for having both in one box or if it should be a different amount. The suggested volume I've calculated is 4.1 cu ft (but that seems a bit huge).       V(as) 33 liters   |    Q(ts) 0.66    |    10 Inch The speakers will be in series, I don't know if this affects whether or not I can put them in a single box. How much does the shape of the box matter? Can I make a rectangular cube and put the speakers at either end or do they need to be on the same side? When it comes to fill would it be better to use something fluffy that takes up a large amount of space like very fluffed out cotton or is carpet always the better way to go? I cannot find how much fill I SHOULD use. I have found suggestions for just carpet on the back wall and some for all sides wherever you can and even two people suggested to fill it to about 80% (though it did not say what with). Any questions?
