My team and I are gonna make a trailer for a certain book. We don't have licenses or even the materials for special effects. I keep seeing these edited videos with gunfire that looks so real like "The Incredibly Slow Murderer with an Extremely Ineffective Weapon". Just go type it into the YouTube search box. If my trailer looks extremely real, then I'll post it on YouTube. Oh, and the software I have to use for these effects has to be freeware.

My Failed Projects :-( 1,2 Pic: My Extrem 42, it was going to be named 41 but i gave my Extrem sniper that name. This gun is very powerful, and can be easily muzzel-loaded 3 Pic: My Extrem 41 Sniper, It was a very good looking gun, but it had only one problem and that was the range, it could only shoot 20 feet with 2 #64 rubberbands, so i gave up on it 4 Pic: My Elite 3000 MFHB... This gun had two firing systems in it, one was a false bolt-action gun, the other is a very cool slingshot gun, with a new firing mechinism. I demolished it because the bullet kept on backfiring at me (OUCH) , because of all the rubberband power 5 Pic: My Blazer v2... It was alright, I didn't post because it used KILLERK'S Mechinism 6 Pic: My Prototype of a gun. The idea is still under development So I can't say anything else 7 Pic: Yes, My lancer. I Loved the look of it, But it Always jamed and didn't shoot far, but i will try again one day 8 Pic: My First version of my singleshot, It was Amazing execpt the fact that it had no True trigger :-(

I have been hyping this gun up in the chatroom for a bit, so I got a pic today.This is A combo of my 2 best knex guns I ever built- The AR-4 Commando v2, and the Longbow v2. I made it mostly for the innovative ideas it brought, but i wanted to see if it was possible to combine the AR-4 v2 and Longbow v2.This gun uses an extremely reliable BRAND NEW sear system trigger which never misfires or jams, I thought of making a double-ratchet system and put it in a super modded Longbow handle. The stock Is an uber modded AR-4 commando stock. Same thing with the barrel.It is a single shot, but it can have a mag. Range is 40-50 feet (one rubbeband).the second pic is a close up of the mech.The only con I can think of atm is that this gun is sorta skeletony at the bottom. But its extremely sturdy neverthelessOk, I changed the name because I thought it would be less confusing and more appropriate.

My neighbors have a really old computer, that can't connect to the internet, and runs windows 95. I have a bunch of computer parts that I got from other computers, and I built a new one that runs XP. I know it's not fancy, but it's much better than what they have right now. I am going to type up a users manual, and I just finished installing windows (I'm using the computer to type this). The specs aren't ninja, I haven't had money myself for months, and so it was built out of junk, but I'm proud, and I know they'll love it. Anyways, I want to include some kind of poem with it, I think that would be cool. Can someone help me write one (could also be read as write me one). I would be extremely grateful. On a sidenote, does any have DDR ram sticks that I can put in this thing? The computer only had 2 slots, and I only have 256mb sticks. Enough to to day to day stuff, but if their computer gets bloated, then I don't want it to slow down very much. If you can donate, I would be extremely happy. :)

I haven't had the time to work on the SRv3 in a while so here is what I am thinking of doing. Let me know what you think. I want to release an ible on what I have built up to this point. Which by the way is a working shooting gun that shoots exactly how I want it to I just need the body, front, grip, stock, and bi pod to be designed and built. If you build what I present your SRv3 will shoot 500ft. What do you think? I want to make this gun a collaboration of design ideas so we can all build the gun as a community. Let me know if this sounds fun to you all. If so I'll post pics this weekend! 08/11/2013 Pics of both my working SRv3 and Directional Mine Prototype coming soon! Just a few fun stats of the two. The SRv3 has been recorded to shoot over 500ft and is extremely accurate. The Directional Mine launches 25+ K'nex green rods over 50ft in a nice spread pattern that can be activated by both trip wire and pull cord. Both are shooting great and are extremely fun to use! I hope to get a video and ible/forum up soon showing how to build both and how they preform! 08/14/2013 Go check out the Directional Mine Prototype on my ible NOW!

About time I made an M4 carbine. The farthest shooting/accurate and sturdiest gun i've made to date mostly due to the muzzle loading. WHAT!!! NO MAGAZINE!!! yep, it was abandoned due to horrible range and often jams. It's more of a sniper than an assault rifle and is extremely accurate with a grey rod + grey connector. It uses a modded dsmans barrel for maximum accuracy and distance, accuracy due to the barrel going through the forgrip. I also added a 4-railed foregrip for attachments such as virtical foregrip (shown in pic), bipod, dot scope, lights/lasers, or anything that can attach. Tell me what you guys think.

The arrows are smaller than an average crossbow arrow so they fly slightly faster. It has no track so it is a slingshot type crossbow. Will be posted in a month or 2. Amazingly powerful. Has over 800 pieces and a Ballista attachment that rolls and keeps it at a 30 degree agle with the ground. Low piece and a great gun, If only I could show you. . . . . . . . . . .

Yo yo peoples I was just wondering who would all be interested in my super contest. My grand challenge. My...my...something else great...the coo-- the aweso--...THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN YEAH!! Sorry getting a little excited. Sorry if this topic kills most of your other ideas for those who start contests. OK well I basically wanted to know what people thought were the best side arms, grenades, innovative gun, etc.. We had one for snipers so I'll just leave that one out as I'm sure no one wants to build them all. Well for now I just want to see who would all be interested in joining. I need at least 5 entries in each category so if I get enough then I'll set up the contest. Here are a couple of the categories I'll be having but there may be more (#=how many judges we have)1-Best Side Arm dsman(#s), TheDunkis, popomaster, Radioactive1-Most Innovative gun Tech-king, jollex, extreme builder, popomaster2-Best Grenade/Explosive TheDunkis, I_am_Canadian, skate1-Best semi-auto TheDunkis, extreme builder -Best replica of another weapon TheDunkis, T-Man, dsman,Katarukito-Best gun overall dsman, extreme builder, I_am_CanadianWe'll see what else comes up. I'll also need quite a few judges who will judge (duh) at least one of the categories that they won't be entering. They need to build all of the guns and test them and of course I'll take word from the public as well. The rules for entering a gun will go as follow.1. You can only enter a gun that has an instructable sorry no out of instructable sites this just makes it easier2. You cannot enter a gun that isn't yours even if you made the instructable for someone else3. Your gun can't be someone elses but with mods. It has to be mostly your gun although it can contain some parts from other guns.4. You have no word on anything in the category you enter. If I see any smack talk or bragging or if I see you trying to convince the judges then you are automatically eliminated from the whole thing and...you'll be shunned by me for the rest of your life. Shun shun shuuuuuunn!If anyone has ideas for any other category be free to submit...preferbly if you'd be willing to judge it. I will not take anything relating to power.

This is not only frustrating but also unfair, ask one of my very good friends who actually pre-ordered Team Fortress 2, was a dedicated Gamer and Beta Tester but has now been demoted so much he can't even boot up the game anymore, while several F2P "gamers" had no trouble at all booting the game up.

I am not leaving Instructables anytime soon though. I have been fiddling around with K'nex sometimes and I am now building a new K'nex Transformer. It still has some issues but when these are gone I'll definately post it. Some pictures of the progress will come up soon. If you have any suggestions which I should build next please post them here. I am not making guns myself anymore so please opnly transformer ideas. Thanks -AUG-5OM3-

Well, I've got some explaining to do. It turns out my K'nex was never actually sold. My parents hid my K'nex from me, telling me they sold it, only to give it back to me extremely recently under one stipulation: I can't build guns anymore, unfortunately. Trust me, I'm not complaining; I'm just ecstatic that I can build with them again. I'm sorry for the huge lack of activity lately, but I haven't had that many ideas before I got my K'nex back. My first K'nex creation in a while is this really cool compact lock. Being K'nex, of course, I wouldn't advise that you lock anything with it, but it is nigh on impossible to open with force unless the button is pushed, or you deconstruct the lock itself. It is powered completely by tension, and doesn't need any rubber bands or power source other than the K'nex from which it is made. It is also extremely fun to mess around with, and I could spend about an hour just fiddling with the mechanism; such is my attention span. I'm thinking about working on instructions, but I wanted to see what you guys thought of it first. The second thing I'd like to share with you all is this 3D Owl I printed over at Fab Lab in Chicago at the Museum of Science and Industry. I would like to sincerely thank Matt Chalker, the head executive of the Museum of Science and Industry's Fab Lab, the museum itself, and all that make Fab Labs possible for such a wonderful experience. Along with this owl, we made many things out of wood via the wood laser engraver, and finger puppets for each member of my family, depicting our faces, of course. (I have more pictures of both the owl and the lock. If anyone is interested, I could post them in the comments. They're pretty much the items on different backgrounds, though.) Enjoy! -DarkOwl

Hi! I bought this old sink at a salvage yard. It has a sheet metal bottom with some drawers and cabinets. They are lined on the inside with this plastic contact paper that's been stuck on for 50 years.

I feel that creating another account might be burdensome or too complicated for some of my neighbors -- especially the older ones who stay at home peering out of their windows all day that I specifically want included. Mailman does pretty much what I want, but I don't think it's ready for someone who already has trouble dealing with email at all.

What does a municipality do with old traffic lights? Why, they can make them into dinner plates! Recycled Glassworks makes plates from old traffic light covers from retired lights, often the ones replaced with the newfangled LED kind. Oddly, the green lights end up as blue plates... dunno if this is an artifact of the plate-making process or if the light behind is very yellow, necessitating a blue "green" light.But while that's probably their most dramatic product, there's another. Most glass recycling is limited to bottles and jars. The only thing to do with broken windows, or broken glass tabletops, or other glass of this kind, has been to throw it away. Recycled Glassworks accepts this kind of glass in addition to the traffic light kind. They cut it to size and kiln-bake it in a mold (a process called slumping) to produce extremely attractive bowls and plates.Way to go, Recycled Glassworks!

This is my TNKIT entry, an F1 based car. It has built-in suspension (not independent, but on the axle), and realistic features. The last pictures are of my new assault rifle, an FN SCAR replica. The stock is different because of the internal ram mechanism, and it has Ironman rails top and bottom, with strange new rails on the sides, which hold a bipod at the moment. An ironman mag adaption allows for extremely quick mag changing, with the release lever an inch from the trigger at the front of the trigger guard. The flip-up iron sights have been modified since these pictures, and the barrel (area with the bottom rail, not the false barrel at the end) has been shortened by 2 units, making the weapon more realistic and easier to use. Uses lots and lots of y clips and hinges, and requires about 6 cut white rods (can get away with 5). The EGLM fires a large projectlie using a push trigger behind the mag (in front of and below the handle). Also for your enjoyment; my MP5 from May.
