I am a 61-year-old man with autism. I have been studying various sciences since I was a very young boy (primarily physics, astrophysics, human behavioral biology, neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory, robotics (soft) et.al). I am as well a traditional artist and much of my art reflects my scientific interests. I am particularly interested in the replacement of capitalism and democracy with a Resource-Based Economy (RBE) in which decisions are derived at by the application of the scientific method;…

  • Underground Drinks Cooler

    Great project! Well done.When I first saw this, I expected that it would work by stepping upon the grass top which would then unlatch it and cause it to rise by itself, perhaps pneumatically. You would then just press it back down until it again latched in place.I can see many uses for this.Again, thank you. Well done.

  • How to Build a Full-sized All-Terrain Tracked Vehicle From Junk (the Ultimate Bug-out Vehicle)

    A high-schooler huh? You could (and did) fool me. Simply amazing work and the video was so very well made! I am impressed, so very impressed. I know nothing about internal-combustion vehicles; I am an astrophysicist and my hobbies tend to be things like high-powered, solid-fuel, rocket motors and human behavioral biology, but you have really inspired and motivated me. At 60 y.o I should not limit myself to those things to which I have grown accustomed, but expand my horizons. This vehicle, or one like it would be perfect for the land that I plan upon buying, and building an underground home upon in N. CA when I can finally sell my house in NY. I hope that you do not mind, but I am going to download your video for future reference.I would encourage you to do as you said, create a YouTube s…

  • Fine project, but this is really just a very brief description, not an Instructable.

  • Very impressive project. What does make me curious is why you chose to run all wires on the outside of the PVC instead of containing them (and thus weather- and damage-proofing them) within the PVC? Again, great project!

  • This is, by far, one of the most innovatively brilliant and original Instructables I have as yet seen. I applaud you.

    Thank you for the link. Interesting machine. I left a link to this Instructable there. I agree that this Instructable provides a much more usable and versatile version.

    You can find DVD Writers for absolutely nothing inside disposed-of desktop computers. You might wish to search online for non-working computers (for parts) locally that are free to pick-up.

  • What are your thoughts regarding the using of a liquid as opposed to a gas (hydraulic vs pneumatic)? I am designing a lifelike robotic system (micro-controller actuated) with valves for the release of pressure so that a consistent and constant pressure is maintained throughout the robot and the appendages are only filled (flexed) when the valves close. Do you see any problems with hydraulics in this case as long as the liquid does not dissolve the ecoflex?

  • I have a service animal, Betty and I hate to keep saying "Betty, no." I feel as though it makes Betty's almost model, good behavior seem less so. When I tried this, she responded immediately to your "Eh, Eh" signal. Thank you.I have also trained her to move out of the way when I say "Excuse me" which is far more pleasant and less irritating than "Get out of the way" or "Move".
