To be honest, i think it sounds like a good idea. the device would probably have to be about the diameter of an orange, but i bet having a pocketwatch that doubles as a cell phone would be a hit with steampunk lovers! anyone agree with this?

Do members ever get to make suggestions for contest themes? I was grilling this weekend and thinking it would be awesome if we could have a grilling contest this summer. I bet there would be a bunch of entried and it would give us all some great grilling ideas.

What the Hell are we? In general, I just looked at my hand the other day and thought, you know, if an alien ever came around and they really are spying on us, I bet they're probably thinking we're weird looking things. Wouldn't ya say??? *Trolling enrolls...?*

Has anyone else checked out MAKE:Project? It looks like a wiki version of Instructables. Admittedly I'm not a huge fan of the wiki model, but I was wondering what others thoughts were on the site. Personally I'll stick here, but it will be interesting to see where the traffic goes in the future. Hmm, bet the K'nexers' would love the wiki part though.

I was looking at this, and I thought to myself, that all it does is run off a couple AA batteries. Would it be possible to create my own? I couldnt find anywhere what the voltage an ipod runs off of, but I bet someone here knows. thanks PS: I know it will probably void the warranty

I am getting a little annoyed by how the layouts are always changing. And I bet a lot of other people are too. ...so I got an idea that there should be a poll, showing all of the previous layouts, and maybe a few new ones, where the Instructables community could vote and pick their favorite one. Leave a comment on what you think about this, or give some other suggestions...

Our friends over at Indy Mogul are looking for a new host/producer to replace Erik in the Backyard FX show! I'm betting someone from Instructables would be a perfect fit. They want you to make an audition episode by February 28 - anyone up for it? Check out their previous work for ideas. Video posting on Instructables here, and more on the Indy Mogul website.

What's with people needing like, 3 years cover for everything they own? Seriously, what do people do with their tech? I've never needed to honour a warranty in my life, and I void them without care. Wen people buy a TV, do they expect it not to work? I bet most warranties are really just some technophobe who accidentally messed with their settings and can't fix them again, or people who dropped their stuff and said it came like that.

Has anyone had any experience in taking a web cam, attaching it to the top of a monitor, then programming it to recognize face and hand movements, sort of how digital cameras today recognize faces, so it can be used to control a mouse. It would be sort of like having a virtual touch screen on any monitor and if someone could do this, I'd bet they'd make a lot of money.

Here's one for the more creative engineers - a robot running on corkscrews instead of wheels or legs. Tim Lexen, an engineer in Cumberland, Wisconsin, has come up with a novel design for robots. It has a triangular body 18 centimetres on a side, capped by a round lid, and three stainless steel coils 20 cm in diameter and 40 cm long. Each coil is turned by a motor - and by activating a coil, the robot can move in the direction of the coil's axis. "It runs very well on grass, sand, gravel and other outdoor surfaces," Lexen said when he presented his work earlier this month at the IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Practical Robot Applications in Woburn, Massachusetts. However, the prototype has trouble gaining traction on surfaces like polished wood floors. Here's the thing though; Lexen's prototype is only radio-controlled. A human operator chooses what direction to rotate which screws. Given the idea, I bet the clever folk here could not only replicate the corkscrew drive, but make it autonomous. I'd bet an Arduino or Raspberry Pi would be up to the job. Go on - imagine the kudos of beating the boffins at their own game! New Scientist article. Abstract of Lexen's work. Video of robot in action.

Have you seen the videos for Flugtag? It looks like a great excuse to build something fun and jump in the water, and maybe fly a few feet too.Most of them look like this: And here's the US record holder, at a whopping 155 feet: I bet we could do better than that, especially with a drop. ;) Anyone have a proposal for Team Instructables? They hold these things around the world, so it's not just US. I bet we could pick up on style points as well.From the official page:The first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1991. Since then, more than 35 Flugtags have been held around the world -- from Ireland to San Francisco -- attracting up to 300,000 spectators. The record for the farthest flight-to-date currently stands at 195 feet set in 2000 at Flugtag Austria. The U.S. record stands at 155 feet set in Nashville, TN in 2007.Teams are judged on three criteria: distance, creativity and showmanship. What constitutes a craft is purely up to the imagination of the participating teams. Past Red Bull Flugtag entries have included a pregnant cow, a diaper-delivering stork, a pimped-out Cadillac, a giant Oompa Loompa, and yes folks -- a lobster named Larry.

Hi Everyone! We want to come up some really creative ways to use TINE, and we thought that instructables community might be a good place to get some help. TINE is is what you would get if you combined a post it note with YouTube. We've created these little stickers called TINE tags that you can stick on anything and then use the TINE app to record a video or audio message onto the sticker. When someone scans your sticker, they'll see your message and you'll get notified. You can learn more at tinetag.com. It's totally free and our goal was to create something new and different that people could use in a lot of creative ways. We would love to hear how you would use TINE. We recently created a DIY on how to use TINE to make any book a recoradable audio book, but we know there are tons of other ideas out there. Let us know if you have an amazing idea for TINE and we will make a DIY for it. Thanks, Vik from TINE

Ever wonder what happens to those peach pits you throw out? No, I bet you don't, so here is an interesting new design utilizing the pits from peaches to create some neat flooring.http://www.luxist.com/2008/03/22/eco-friendly-flooring-made-of-peach-pits/Think "eco-friendly home design" and a lot of different options come to mind, but I'm willing to bet fruit pits as flooring isn't one of them.Alla le Roux feels differently however, and after being inspired by personal experience has started a business ( Stone Fruit Floors ) that designs and sells handmade flooring created out of peach pits. The pits are sanded down (to get rid of sharp edges and make them more comfortable to walk on) and set into the floor by hand along with glue, sand, and a resin mixture. The end result looks like a strange mix between hardwood, tile, and linoleum.Interesting... I'm not really sure what else to say about this!Check out the whole process here.Here is another gallery of the floorsSomeone has got to learn how to make these...will it be you? We can do it! Plus, you get the benefits of eating peaches!

Hey y'all, I'm just wondering if there are any other MSPA fans on here! There seems to be a distinct lack of Homestuck and MSPA related I'bles. I know there's more of us though, so if you see this topic, let me know you're out there! Guys, we need to post some MSPA related 1NSTRUCT4BL3S!! UPDATE: Wouldn't a Homestuck contest be so cool?

What a fantastic thing to do to your car. I bet I could make one to attach to my bicycle... hmmm..."(the) car projects a video of a wild animal. The animal's movements are programmed to correspond to the speed of the car: as the car moves, the animal runs along it speeding up and slowing down with the car, as the car stops, the animal stops also. The framerate of the movie corresponds to the speed of the wheel rotation..." This is a work by artist Karolina Sobecka . Now that I've found this I am off to see what else she's done!

I want to buy one but feel overwhelmed in the vast amount of choice and price variation from Chinese ebay specials that cost less than $1000 all the way up to $15,000. I can afford the ebay price range but bet the trouble in usage might make it worthless. I have a very cheap vinyl cutter from ebay but doubt that good experiance will be replicated. Also since I only have a mac are there any issues that might arise from this fact?

I really hope someone can help me. I really need a clock I can have outside. I teach classes outside and I need to know what time it is. Waterproof clock prices are exorbitant... I bet they're easy to make. Nothing comes up when I google waterproof clock works. I have this huge metal disk I found by the side of the road and it would be cool to make that into a gigantic outdoor clock. But how to make sure it's not destroyed the first time it rains...? Can anyone help? THANK YOU!

I am not to familiar with wiring and leds and recently have taken an intrest. My desires however are hindered by my lack of wiring knowledge. For a project I am working on i wish to have either 12 or 24 leds. I have read that a series/parallel matrix might be my best bet but I dont know how to go about setting it up. I dont know what leds to choose or what resistors are needed. I also want them to constanly change color but dont know how to do that either. This all needs to plug into a wall socket. If anyone can be of help I would greatly appreciate it!

Greetings Space Cadets! I need help figuring out what sort of switch to use to activate the thermo-nuclear disruptor beam of the ray gun I'm building out of a busted battery powered drill, a smoke alarm and a battery. Bet you didn't know this combination of junk is dangerous in the wrong hands? I need a switch that will work with DC current and switch on the circuit when pressed but not stay on. Like a primitive projectile firing pistol of the 21st century this ray gun should only fire once when the power switch is pressed and not stay on continuously. Any suggestions? And yes, I'll post an 'ible when I get it done. Thanks!

Two men in their bedroom, with time on their hands... Building clocks. An elegant, simple new design of clock is being produced by two entrepreneurs in a bedroom. The spiral face rotates, clockwise, every 12 hours, slowly winding a small ball up the coiled face. At the twelfth hour, the ball drops into the centre of the face and back to the beginning. The clock is an art piece, costing hundred of pounds, but I bet you could build your own version from off-the-shelf parts or a recycled clock. After all, the prototype was knocked together from beer cans and gaffa tape... BBC video article. Aspiral website. Advertising video: Oddly philosophical video:

Well, if you have seen the altoids solar battery charger, and the altoids 9v usb charger, then you must have thought, "why not put em together???". Now, Im not electronics buff, but I'd be willing to bet that since the 9v charger instructable is so small, that it could be incorperated with the solar panel kit. Now, my question is, would i have to do anything ridiculous to convert the solar charger (which is ment to charge 2 AA batterys) into a 9v usb charger w/solar panel while still being inside an altoids tin. PS: I still don't know why I have this wierd fascination with altoids tin DIYs, but I do...

I was looking through the internet, and was linked to this page. There they used a freon can for the foundry shell, but I thought those small helium tanks would work too. I kinda knew that a dremel wouldn't cut through it, but it is just what I put on there. I used Inkscape and GIMP to make it.Also, does anyone know a good source for fire clay? I've heard that masonry supply stores are a good bet. Another thing - does anyone know a good page on a cheap, simple, charcoal foundry? I made a .gif animation describing my ideas, below. In the animation, I meant to put the part about cutting the hole for the blower in the beginning, too (after I cut the top off).

Hi! I'm a letterboxer. I bet a lot of Instructable users know what that means. Every year I host a big Halloween event. I'm already in the planning stages for 2015. The theme is Twin Peaks. Mysterious stuff hidden the woods -- perfect. Anyhow... with the idea of building interest ahead of time I had a brainstorm of riffing on the backstory from the actual show that Cooper had been involved in an ongoing investigation long before Laura Palmer's murder. So I'm thinking of using a blog to put out a variety of clues, logic puzzles, visual things, whatever, that will fall into place at the actual event by allowing people to have access to.... to.... I would appreciate references to your favorite "secret box" instructables...things that you would need some code or something to get into. Thanks in advance....

Merry Knexmas! From Hiyadudez! It's almost here, Christmas, one of the happiest times of the year. Lets start of by singing a song, made by Logic boy :-) Rudolph, the red-turreted knexsayer had a very shiny turret. And if you ever saw it, you would even say it was awsome. All of the other knex guns used to laugh and call it names. They never let poor Rudolph join in any knex wars. Then one foggy Christmas Eve Mepain came to say: "Rudolph with your Turret so bright, won't you be my primary tonight?" Then all the knex guns loved him as they shot out with glee, Rudolph the red-turreted knexsayer, you'll go down in history! Well, that was completely random... but I bet you are singing it in your head right at this very moment though! Hehe :-) Anyway, I only made this because I was bored, cya!

Well, I made the mistake of using the words "chainsaw" and "whack" ,(although I would do it again!) in a new instructable and it is still hung up in the filters. The thing is I got it submitted on Dec 30, the deadline for the outdoors contest but it is still stuck. Now voting ends today, the 2nd and I am not even in the mix so I am wondering are you going to accept entries that made the deadline but missed the voting because they were stuck in never never land? I just always have to make things more complicated. Maybe that's why I like whacking trees with chainsaws, its pretty straight forward in its execution, although there is a lot that can go badly. Hmmm, execution, now I bet that is a word that would get me back in never never land also. Tinkerbell is just never around when you need her. Yumm, Tinkerbell !

We needed 80 feet of 3/4" PVC from the local hardware store. Since it's pretty much impossible to park near it and the nearest available car was a couple miles away anyway we decided to carry it by bike. All we used was a couple pieces of inner tube and Brian's Xtracycle. I bet I could've pulled this off on another bike I've recently adopted, but we wanted to be safe. Speaking of safe, this rode pretty well, but the left turns were a little touchy as the front wheel would rub against the PVC. Good thing I was only going a few blocks. Along the way guy in the street told us that that was how the Vietcong would attack them. "They used to strap missiles to bikes! Heheh. Yeah, they kept getting us."

So.... I was playing NFS most wanted on my PS2, when I picked two markers from the blacklist rival number 12, when I noticed that I didn't pick the pinkslip! (I didn't get the car). So it started saving, and you know when it says do not reset or switch off the console while its saving? Well I was like Reset Blah console blah blah blah. So i pressed reset. Then came regret. I started to fret. You wanna bet? So i pressed the button right. everything was going well until is started loading....... Then it said: COULD NOT LOAD, DATA CORRUPT. Or something like that. So whatever you do don't press reset while you are saving! OR ELSE!
