Optimus Prime is made of tins

I love transformers very much after I watched the movie. So I decided to make a Optiums Prime. Last year I finished this works which had lasted two month. It made by less than 40 tins and some other things. The Optiums Prime is about 40cm high, and almost all of joints can act include neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, legs, and every fingers

Transforming Halloween

Ever since seeing the Transformers movie I just couldn't stop thinking about transformers. So I decided a Transformer costume was it this year. It started out as just a box and later became more elaborate and more of a car. IT IS FINALLY DONE. Took three months but it's done. Pictures of the final product is here. Today I took it to school for a contest. I probably transformed at least twenty times. At one point the tape wasn't working on the spoiler because the "haters" would tear it off. So we used a bolt instead. In the contest people were chanting my name and I won ... a cheapy blue necklace. But now whenever I was going around the block all I would hear is "Are you the Transformer kid? Transform for us". Of course I would. So if anyone has questions or wants me to post instructions let me know. The instructions will be hard because of the variety of height and weight.

Optimus Prime gets a parking ticket in New York

Traffic Wardens are getting braver... Perhaps we should fear for the poor sap who tries to give megatron a parking ticket!

Transformer : Kneximus Prime - Now With Video

This is my latest Transformer Creation. These pictures are compared to the actual toy for a sence of scale. More pictures can be found http://knexinnovation.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=18&t;=621 I wasn't happy with my previously posted Optimus it wasn't accurate and was lacking so I reworked him from the ground up. I am not going to post instructions for this, Please don't ask. I had to re-upload the transformation video, some hacker took it down.   Here it is again : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIchZK2O_gM

Problem with newsletter

I just went to check the Instructables newsletter, and realized that there seemed to be a bug in the naming for one of the featured Instructables (the homemade engagement ring mis-named optimus prime costume). Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed this?

Knex Transformers

I'm new to this website and ive seen a lot of great posts for some transforming knex especially one that resembles optimus prime (not the large one that the creator refuses to post a smaller one) i was just wondering if anyone would be willing to post more instructables of their designs keep up the work folks.

Embedding a Second Video in a Video Instructable?

I'm trying to embed a second video into my video instructable. I'm guessing that because it's a video instructable it is limited to the one main video and no other videos can be embedded? https://www.instructables.com/id/Optimus-Prime-Transformers-Costume/ You can see I've been trying, but I guess that's my question: is there any way to embed another video?

Newsletter Mistake?

I don't know if something's wrong with the newsletter or if my computer has just gone crazy. In an Instructables Newsletter that I got today (September 12, 2010) The instructable in the top right corner of it seems to be messed up. It shows a picture of a ring and says "Optimus Prime Costume." When clicked, it takes me here: https://www.instructables.com/files/orig/F9N/NR2Z/GDVZOEX6/F9NNR2ZGDVZOEX6.jpg. Is this just a goof or am I missing some kind of joke here?

LED Eyes while still maintaining visibility?

I'm modding an Optimus Prime voice changer helmet for halloween. I'd like to have eyes that are lit up, but I still need to see through them. Any ideas how I could accomplish this?  My idea is something like a car headlight. Have the LED off to the side, and have a reflective background (tinfoil?) so it lights up bright. Then have an eye hole in the middle of the background to see through. Thoughts?

Water Tunnel Testing (photos)

I'm starting a new topic so I can edit it later with more content.I went with some friends to a different lab section that was also playing with the tunnel (my official turn is on Friday).Things put in:1. PVC tube -- to show detachment of a cylinder2. Golf Ball -- to show how dimples create turbulence and keep flow attached longer3. Tennis Ball -- to show how fuzz acts almost like golf ball dimples4. Porsche 9115. Atlantis Space Shuttle6. Porsche 911-turbo (or possibly a 935 or 993 -- can't remember)7. Chain Mail Cube -- wtf? why did someone make that?8. Surf Board Fin9. Optimus Prime10. Unknown Porsche (I just can't remember what it was)11. Batting Cage BallThe pump was set to 3.55 inches per second. So for a 1/64 scale model (for the cars) - that's just under 13mph equivalence (in water).My camera had a low battery -- so the shutter was slower than normal. I'll get fresh batteries and a tripod on Friday I'll have some better pictures (hopefully).As for what I'm bringing in... Still don't know -- but I think I am going to do a comparison of apples and oranges :PVideos of the 911, 911turbo, unknown porsche and of the overall tunnel in operation ;)Update November 3rdItems Tested:1. Plastic Cone (with hole in top)2. Apple3. Eyeglass Case4. Obligatory Altoids Tin5. Plastic Water Bottle6. Highlighter Cap7. Reverse Gear from a manual gearbox (Nissan)8. Pen Cap thing9. Rubber Duck10. Nerf Dart (velcro top)11. Batman Shield (this was really cool)12. Welded Plate13. Golf Ball14. Guitar Bar15. Wing FoilAgain, it was set to 3.55 inches per second. I couldn't find an orange on campus (weird considering I'm in central Florida :P). So I'd say an orange is kinda like a golf ball :PThe Bat Shield video is very cool - if you watch just one of them, make it the bat shield ;)
