Nice Idea

This is NOT my idea. I do not take any credit for it in any way. I just found this on You tube. I thought it was a brilliantly original idea, and wanted to show everyone here that there really is no limits to knex.

Ideas for minecraft?

Well I've got minecraft but I dont play online so, I usually like to build cool things to mess with like connecting islands via an underwater railway. However I'm running out of ideas of things to build. Post ideas of things to build below or post cool screenshots of things you've built and I'll add them to the idea list. Ideas: -Build a glass ball filled with lava in the sky. -Use binvox to convert 3d objects into minecraft schematics. -Use the new note blocks and create a circuit system that plays "The Entertainer."

Knex ideas

Hey guys, it's me again. I decided to make this forum, as many people have awesome knex ideas, but arent experienced enough to make it, don't have the pieces, or anything else. Or maybe you have an idea that would be cool, and just suggest it here, people will see it and maybe pick up on it and decide on trying it out! Share your ideas, models, concepts and anything else! Your ideas can be anything, from small thing such as small model cars and ball machines to full auto mechs and awesome motors(V4, V8 type motors). Happy building!

Headphone idea

I have a pair of headphones as seen by the freaky looking girl below (I got it off the site, that sure as hell ain't me). These are exactly the same model as what's in the link, but theres a couple things I wanna do to better suite me. First off, I think these are intended for kids? They don't sit on my head normally because the head strap is a little short (any ideas?) but they sit with the headband hanging off the back of my head just as good.They may seem fairly "crappy" and the speakers they included with them are shitty, just normal headphone speakers, maybe a little larger than average but nothing special. I wanted to up-grade the speakers with something maybe a little bigger (the ones in here sound pretty okay tho). I tried to see if these small surround sound speakers I had would fit, and the magnet is about 1cm too deep so that's out of the question unless I want to remove a whole lotta plastic with my dremel.So I had a second idea, what about using pager/cell phone motors (would ps2 controller motors work? I have lots of those) and either having them receive the signal directly which I'm sure wouldn't do much unless it was a small pager motor with a small voltage requirement. But, what about a simple circuit, kind of like this mod which uses the sound output of a PSP to drive a circuit that uses "seperate" voltage (ie battery pack) to drive the motor to the sound.My general idea is to have a pair of headphones that feel like you have a giant subwoofer strapped to your head. I know it can be done, I know the circuit isn't that complicated, but probably has enough parts, can someone help me get a jump start on this? I'm sure modifications to a pair of headphones is fairly straightforward. Also any suggestions on a new type of speaker that I could install would be appreciated.

New Mag Idea

So, I was thinking and I came up with a new idea for a mag.It works almost the same to the P90's mag system. So in a p90 the rifle rounds sit sideways in the mag. Then, they get rotated into the barrel and shot out. Since the bullets are sideways in the mag it can hold alot. So I was thinking if we could use that idea with a bunch of green rods sitting sideways. The olny problem is that the bullets would be fired out of the gun sideways which would decrease the range of the gun. Heres a simple pic to show you what I mean _______________mag_________________ 0000000000000 bullets 0000000000000000\ 00000000000000000000000000000000000 \--------------barrel----------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Yeah. I know its confusing but all the little 'o's are the sideways green rods then they get pushed into the barrel and fired. The really only point of all this is to increase the mag capacity of all horizontal mag. So send me a message if you have any questions.

Quick-vite idea

*UPDATE 2-15-11* If you are good with cell phone apps and website building and you would like to use my idea please message me. If you do make this all I ask for is a very small cut of the profit, but I really doubt anyone would want to make this anyway. Well, if you do just send me a private message and we can talk about it. Keep in mind you still may NOT TAKE MY IDEA UNLES I LET YOU! IT IS STILL COPYRIGHTED BY ME! Hey everyone, I just wanted to share my idea for a possible website I will be making in the future. I got the idea recently when my mom wanted to invite people over to the superbowl and sent out the emails that day. Many people didnt respont because, lets face it, many people dont check their email more than once a day. My idea would be a website based service that you could sign up for for free or become a member for a monthly fee. How it would work is you could type up your message and then send it to a pre-saved group of all the recipients phone numbers, and from there numbers could be added or removed. The site would then send a text to all of the recipients with instructions on how to respond. It would be something like "I'm having a b-day party at my house. 3:00-6:00 at 52 blah blah road. 'reply the number of people followed by y for yes, n for no, or m for maybe. ex. 3y 2n' " Then the results would be replied back to the website where it would compile a list of who and how many could and could not go to the event. Since sending the texts would cost some money it would have to be made up by advertising space as well as limiting the amount of invites allowed to be sent by the free users. Members benefits could include increased invites per month, more recipient groups allowed to be made, and a feature where you could text your website number from your cell phone and it would update you with how many people could and could not go. Since I'm only 16, I would not know how to create this site or be able to spread the word very well, so I would just like feedback on the idea for now. Please tell me what you think about the idea, and if you think its stupid be honest and tell me. Thanks :) And if you take my idea and start making money off of it, I will press charges. I emailed this to myself to sort of "copyright" it and this forum topic will not be edited ever so this will prove it's my idea as well. So please don't steal my idea.

ideas for k'nex guns

Hey guys ! between if you've heard of me or not, probably not, i really like building k'nex guns, and i have made a few decent guns over the past year. my best gun would be SABR (Sharir170's Amazing Bullpup Rifle, instructions posted), second would be triple S rifle (Sharir1701's Super Sniper, not posted), and third would be a full-auto rifle i haven't named or posted (it works on an amazing new mechanism that i discovered with my friend, but he begged me not to post it, and made me swear, so i can't post it or show it or even explain how it works (major soz)). anyway, i'm plain out of ideas, and i really wanna build some new guns, so if you'd like me to build something, anything, you name it, and i just might build it and post it. you might be asking yourself : why should i do this... i've never heard of this guy, and therefore don't know if he's any good, and he's not a pro member on 'ibles, so he can't send me a patch... all i have to say is that i've never given up on a k'nex goal i've set for myself and i just work on it on and on until i get it. and what you will get from this is the opportunity to build the gun you requested me to design, and get credit for the idea on the 'ible. anyway, if any of you have any good ideas at all, say so and i might build them, no matter how stupid you think they might be.

Knex gun ideas

Knex Gun Ideas Hello fellow Knexers, I have some ideas and concepts that I have been thinking about and I would like to share them with you all.  Please give me credit if you use any of these ideas of mine.  Also please send me pictures if you are able to create any of these ideas so that we can all help to advance the Knex community.  I know that some of you may have thought of  ideas kind of  like this, so please don't get all bent out of shape that I stole one of your ideas. And please give me your feedback and and ideas in the comments below. 1 Horizontal Knex Oodammo mag     This is an idea that I came up with the other day ago, it could either be on the top or the bottom of     the gun.  First there would be a rail that holds the ammo on top and pushes it down a ramp and then     it falls in front of the FP  and is shot out.  This may have an advantage because then you don't have a                     large mag sticking out of the bottom of your gun. 2  Oodammo bull-pup    I do not see a big advantage to this but maybe some one would like to try this,  Has any one tried             this before? 3 Rotating hammer action   There would be 4 hammers attached to a cog and the hammers would spin around in a circular          motion and hit a new piece of ammo each time they spin around.  I don't think that you could get that      much power with this, but maybe it could be attached to a motor or it could be wound up and released     by the trigger.     4 Knex magazine idea      I was watching some YouTube videos about Nerf guns and there was this one that I saw, is there a      way to make something like this out of Knex?  To load the gun you slide back the pullback and load          ammo though the top into the magazine, this is not a top loading mag but you feed the ammo into the      mag from the top and it is pushed up when you slide the pullback back over the top of the gun.    Here is a link to a video about the gun so you get the idea of how it works    http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjpkp9TRDWo    I will be posting more new ideas here soon so come back often to see updates and more, and please subscribe and share your ideas    below so that we can advance the Knex community to the Next level of innovation, design, comfort and power!    If you have a question or don't understand one of these ideas,  please just ask me below.    Thanks for your ideas and feedback!!    SONIC BROOM

New lift ideas.

I have a couple lift ideas that im going to share, but no stealing! >:-( 1. Spoon lift. the ball waits on a path, and a "spoon" that rotates on an axis comes down, picks the ball up and drops it at the top.                             0 ______                              I                              I                          _______ 0 - - - - - o this is a picture of the idea. the ball waits at the ramp (the line) and the two spoonlike things would be the two positions of where the ball would get on and off. the line at the top is the exit path. 2. bar lift. this is basically a chain lift, but with a rod sticking out horizontally. the ball is picked upby the bar, then deposited at the top.                     0            the zero is the chain and the hyphens are the rod. the ball is cushioned                  -------         the chain and rod. obviously, the rod would be connected somehow.                                   This is supposed to be an aerial view, so it kind of looks like a chainsaw. If you want any pictures of these lifts, i will post some pictures. Feel free to post any other ideas for new lifts.

workshop heating ideas.

Hello all, I have a slight problem, while designing my workshop for the winter months, I happened across a monumental problem... how am I going to heat it? As any Canadian reading this will know, our winters are not for the faint of heart (-50 anyone?), the structure I designed has a metal frame, HardiBacker lined inside and out as walls, screwed into the metal poles, fireproof spray foam insulation in between the cement board walls, it has been placed on a gravel surface, and is held to the ground by rebar that is nailed into the ground a few feet, and currently no ventilation. I know it has flaws left right and center, but I'm working with what i have right now, and I've got very little to work with. The structure is quite small 10' x 8' at 640sq. feet. Winter is on its way and I need ideas for heating. I've thought about wood heating but I'll need all the space I can get on the inside. propane heaters are quite expensive, and electric heaters.... well its out in the middle of a field basically. Im looking for something that can heat it up fairly quickly, and is safe, I made it fireproof so i guess a tiger torch isn't out of the question.....  Any suggestions are welcome! Cheers!

E- walker idea ?

Hey All- I’m the new gal on the block - not round it , so I thought I'd skip proceedings and get to the main point why im here ( aside from the fact I like to learn more , meet people and of course take over the world ) The problem then , and it is big problem , is that I have disability and so Im looking at way I can get around better than I have been . One of these ideas of late has involved basically using something called a knee walker , which you can see here[url]http://www.phc-online.com/Knee_Walker_p/neebop-785.htm[/url] , and trying to adapt it so I have electrical asssitance / power for rought terrain , typical paths here and steeper hills. To add to this problem is the fact I know nill , not even the basics really ,of how I should go about this , other than other examples of what people have done and seem feasible . I don’t have have soldering kits, milling machines or any of that stuff for cutting adapting frames , and TBH would rather try to avoid if i can , simply because I dont want my knee walker too look much like a DIY job / unprofessional and therefore not the credible disability device it currently is. Speed is not issue , I guess 4mph is fine , though it would be nice to go a bit faster for more difficult ground I.e. even off road . The tires I think I can replace with moutainboard given their the same size , ( provided wheelbase checks out ) and the battery has to be ideally be lithium I.e. as opposed to lead. I don’t really mind whether its 2 or 4 wheel drive but figured ( because the axle is all sealed off on both sides ) a hub motor might be the only way of achieving this idea. Any way, that’s just about it , I still need to take the wheels off to confirm the wheel base but other than that , I cant think of much more to say. If any one has any suggestions then on how a complete beginner could make this idea a reality I’d really appreciate . Thanks a lot helena

knex game Ideas

Post rules on your games here, decide on game modes(eg. capture the flag, Eliminate all, hostages, fortress raid, build on spot etc.) and maybe guns used! Well, these are the rules for a ctf game designed by me. Each team must have at least 3 players Each team has a base. The bases must be of equal size (roughly) and will contain a flag. You are allowed 3 different guns. One must be a pistol, one a rifle of any sort and any other of your choice (you are allowed another pistol or rifle). The guns must all fire the same type of rod. You are allowed up to 30 separate rounds per gun. If the gun has a removeable clip, say 20 rounds each, have 1 clips of 20 and 1 clip of 10. If the gun is single shot, carry 30 rounds. If the gun has an unremoveable mag, reload the mag every time you run out. There is a place to reload, where you can collect 10 rods at a time, and you can't revisit the point until the next round. There are 5 rounds. Each round lasts either until both players are out of ammo, or after 10 minutes. To win a round, a player must capture the other team's flag more times in a round than the opponent. If the round is a tie, then you must keep playing for an extra 2 minutes until one team wins. The flags must be the same size, but may be different colours. After the 5 rounds are up, count up the victories and the team with the most wins. Well that's it, tell me what you think.
