Its my 16th birthday! And it just snowed yesterday! (born in december, lived 15.5 years in Minnesota, guess what season I love!) And now because new mexicans are pussies they delayed school 2 hours. So I had time to fix my brakes on my bike (being 16 isn't all that exciting if you don't have a license), check out instructables and post this topic! (Its 8:37am). I love biking in snow! Today is a happy day! So, what are you getting me for my birthday? Hey robot, guess who is on my cake! (maybe I should post an instructable..)

Matt Richardson over at Make made an awesome button from the Staples Easy Button. When pushed, the reprogrammed button randomly selects a synonym to the word 'awesome', perfect for thinking of new (awesome?) words to include in a description when writing. As an added bonus, Instructables' own Scoochmaroo is (sorta) referenced briefly @0:20 Check out the video and make one yourself: via: MakeMagazine YouTube Chanel

Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of embellishment to take something from plain and everyday to something of a conversation starter. This is an excellent example and I think the simplicity in it is inspiring. Crafty Embroidery

We checked the mail today and found a few envelopes waiting for us. Since they were addressed to Eric's Boring Wall we gave them to Eric to open and enjoy.One envelope came from Budapest, another from Adrian Monk, and another envelope came from Butte, Montana with a whole pile of colored robots! We were pretty amazed by all the cool stuff.P.S. Adrian, thanks for the cookies. I kept them all to myself.

I'm contemplating selling LED cubes (better quality than the one in my instructable, of course) but I would like to know how much people are willing to pay for them, and what types they would like before I do.Could those interested in purchasing a cube please tell me how much they would pay, and what they would like it to look like (color, size, etc)?Instructable, for those who do not know.I apologize if this is in the wrong category.

The last Lego forum thread I started went down a storm so when I saw this Lego printer online at BoingBoing today I HAD to post it too. YouTube user Horseattack posted this video a few days ago of a printer that he made using Lego to move a felt tip pen across the page. He doesn't give much detail about how it was made or any instructions on how to do it, but the video is pure awesome. Here's what he had to say about it in the video description: "Lego felt tip 110" printer connected to an Apple Mac. This is not a kit you can buy and does not use mindstorms. I designed/built/coded it all from scratch including analog motor electronics, sensors and printer driver, the USB interface uses a "wiring" board.

We just got the test shirts back from the printer and ran outside to take some snapshots- aren't they awesome? The women's shirts are navy blue, the regular/men's shirts are steel blue. The rest of the batch should be in shortly, and we'll be mailing them out to the Valentine's contest winners ASAP. Thanks for the patience- I hope they're worth the wait!

These leather masks made by the Bob Basset workshop in the Ukraine are amazing. These custom pieces have lots of great details and are pretty inspiring for future projects. Of course you can also buy them yourself, but they'll set you back $550 - $800. Bob Basset via BoingBoing

I have a wireless doorbell kit (plugs in to a 120v outlet) from Home Depot and an old 4th gen ipod (ipod photo). Does anyone have any ideas how to wire these two items together so it they could play custom noises when the button is pressed?

When giving away lots of little gifts to kids it's easy to just give away cheap toys that will quickly be forgotten. This blog post has some great alternative ideas for quick gifts to make that have a lot more personality. Cute gnomes, hot chocolate kits, jingling necklaces, and more in the links at the bottom. Check it out. Link via CRAFT

I currently have a 2 bedroom apartment, in which the second room has zero use... I only got it because it was like 30 dollars more expensive than the 1 bedroom, that being said, I want to use my second bedroom for something and don't know what. I was thinking a project room... but I think I want something more creative then that. I am already thinking of removing the doorand replacing it with a secret mirror door so it becomes a "hidden room"... in this hidden room I was thinking of having a HAM Radio operation, with some other stuff... but honestly I just don't know what I want to do with it. If you had a spare room "collecting dust" what would you do with it? I finally don't have my mom telling me "you can't do that, thats silly" or anything like that... so wild ideas are acceptable! PS: I was just thinking, keep in mind this is an apartment, so I can't nail, drill, or do anything to my walls... and my noise level has to be somewhat low... Otherwise it would be a recording studio.

Public Knowledge recently published a white paper on 3d printing (see link for downloadable PDF version). It compares low-cost home 3d printing technology with home computing and digital publishing, with specific reference to the possibility of DMCA-style legislation preventing the technology reaching its full potential. In many ways, today’s 3D printing community resembles the personal computing community of the early 1990s. They are a relatively small, technically proficient group, all intrigued by the potential of a great new technology. They tinker with their machines, share their discoveries and creations, and are more focused on what is possible than on what happens after they achieve it. They also benefit from following the personal computer revolution: the connective power of the Internet lets them share, innovate, and communicate much faster than the Homebrew Computer Club could have ever imagined. The personal computer revolution also casts light on some potential pitfalls that may be in store for the growth of 3D printing. When entrenched interests began to understand just how disruptive personal computing could be (especially massively networked personal computing) they organized in Washington, D.C. to protect their incumbent power. Rallying under the banner of combating piracy and theft, these interests pushed through laws like the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that made it harder to use computers in new and innovative ways. In response, the general public learned once-obscure terms like “fair use” and worked hard to defend their ability to discuss, create, and innovate. Unfortunately, this great public awakening came after Congress had already passed its restrictive laws. Of course, computers were not the first time that incumbents welcomed new technologies by attempting to restrict them. The arrival of the printing press resulted in new censorship and licensing laws designed to slow the spread of information. The music industry claimed that home taping would destroy it. And, perhaps most memorably, the movie industry compared the VCR to the Boston Strangler preying on a woman home alone. One of the goals of this whitepaper is to prepare the 3D printing community, and the public at large, before incumbents try to cripple 3D printing with restrictive intellectual property laws. By understanding how intellectual property law relates to 3D printing, and how changes might impact 3D printing’s future, this time we will be ready when incumbents come calling to Congress.

Hi guys...I looked through my groups the other day, and I saw I'd somehow added myself to the guitar group.So I just thought I'd share my latest secret weapon in playing guitar:songsterrI know for a fact that Ajleece uses this site, but i thought I'd share it so that the people who don't know about it can use it.Its basically a flash player that plays a midi along with the tab music.You can pause it, fast foward or rewind it for free.However, if you get an account you can play half speed, mute some instruments and upload your own songs.I haven't got an account, because you have to pay $10 every month, except the first 15 days which you get free.Its a little bit like instructables in that you can post comments, and edit the tabs yourself.The community seem very good and the tabs always seem to be perfect.It shows you what notes to tune your guitar to (with a click you can hear that note), and it shows you where to put a capo, if needed.It also has notes that either give you help in playing it, or give you lyrics.Most songs have all the instruments, and you can flick to a different instruments tab in the mixer.It even does bass, voice and piano (though not in notes, in tab).Just a great website!And my favourite!Its made me a whole new repetoire, and I think it will give even the most experienced guitarists new tunes to play.So here it is again:songsterrAll you do is either click on the sections at the top (Alphabet of Bands/Artists) or Search either the song name, or the Band/Artist in the search tab.Oh, and if you can't find the part of the song that you want, but you can hear it, try searching through the mixer's tracks.Also, I'd like to point out that I do not own this site, it's just one of the tools i use in playing guitar. Neither do i have an account.
