The Internet is a Big Thing.

Really.Really. Big.So I was bored. So bored, in fact, that I decided to Google myself. I clicked the text box of my Google search bar and typed in Labot2001. Just to see what comes up, what web sites I've forgotten about, who spies on me, etc. It wasn't until I Googled myself that I realized how big the Internet actually was.For example, my mousetrap car showed up on MAKE. And about 50 million other places. Same with a handful of my other ibles. It's weird to think that the Internet just loops around, through, and under itself a million times. Sometimes without even realizing it.So try it. Google yourself. Share what you find.

What Should I Do With These HUGE LEDs?

Well, I was digging around in my one desk drawer and found these two soccer ball key chain light thingers, and I was like: "Hmm, are those BIG LEDs?" Further actions took place, and left me with two BIG LEDs. Now as I sat at my desk with tools, wire, plastic, and a bloody finger, My "Imagination Well" was dry. So, I am asking the community what I should do with these LEDs...

Large plastic tube with spirals round it, like a massive toilet roll?

Hi,I need some very large pipe, between 45 cm and say 90 cm. I just need about 150 cm length- again, fairly flexible here.  either thin metal or even better probably, fairly thin plastic (say 2-4mm walls if in plastic.) NOT CORROGATED. And, ideally (pretty vital really but looking a bit bleak to find this) made in the same way as a loo roll: with one or two pieces of material that twist around each other so that the pipe has curving spiral joint along its length. Any ideas much appreciated, I don't know where to begin really. What industry should I phone up and annoy with enquiries? I 'll try builders surplus yards I guess, and I thought people who dig up roads and replace water pipes might have stuff.. Or direct from manufacturers, although so far everything I look at is just straight tube, not made in the spiralled way I'm after. CLUES PLEASE !!! Thanks, Georgie

How do I get more volts to power 4--24 volt drill motors, used in a electric power vehicle? Answered

O.K. so here's the project I'm under taking. I am taking a Power wheels Big Foot. One of the old school originals. I made it a 4by4 with independent motors on each wheel (4 motors total). Well the only way I've found to get more speed out of it is to add more volts. I hooked up an 18volt Ryobi drill battery to the circuit system, got some good speed. But it died very fast do to the overwhelming power drain from all motors in sequence. So Other then putting either an 18 or 24 volt battery to each wheel/motor, How would I crank more speed and power out of this thing? I've tried a 12v car battery, but I get more speed out of the drill battery. But the car battery lasts longer. My hope is to make this be able to carry me @about 20-25 mph for a decent distance. Hopefully theres some other electrical junkies out there a little better off in this type of knowledge then me. Thanks again either way guys.

Looking for big tansformer cores for high frequency use... Answered

Although I have made more and more progress with my home made ferrite I am not in the need for a big transformer core for testing purposes. Desired frequency range: 30-120kHz Required power: 2kW I looked through endless pages of theoretical science stuff, a lot of useless online listings and thought: Why not do what everyone does instead of using Google and ask my friends here? ;) So far I think an iron powder core might be better in this case than the more traditional ferrite cores due to the power and saturation levels. But what size would I really need so the  whole thing won't saturate or overheat? Ring core or better a pot core?

World's Largest Snow Sculpture

Living in the bay area in California, I have access to now in Lake Tahoe, but we get no fluffy stuff to look out at in the morning. I love being able to wear light jackets in January, but sometimes I miss getting all bundled up and sledding or making Easter Island style snowguys on the front yard.So seeing this massive snow sculpture from China makes me want to just hit the slopes for a few weeks. Workers sculpt "Romantic Feelings", which will debut at the 20th International Snow Sculpture Art Expo in Harbin of Heilongjiang Province, China, on Dec 17. "Romantic Feelings", measuring approximately 115 feet high and 656 feet long, is designed to be the world's largest snow sculpture. The 20th International Snow Sculpture Art Expo starts on Dec. 20 at the city's Sun Island Scenic Area. (Getty Images/China Photos) ilnk with more picsvia Neatorama

potentiometers: How thick is the enclosure allowed to be, how can I fix them inside the enclosure? Answered

So in a nutshell: I'm following an instructable where potentiometers are used which i was never working with before. Those potentiometers are covered with some potentiometer-knobs which are between the enclosure and the potentiometers. And now I have some questions ... a) how do I fix / secure the potentiometers inside the enclosure so they don't move when I turn them, but the potentiometer-knobs do, and b) how thick is the enclosure allowed to be when I use 500K, 5% tolerance potentiometers? This is so frustratingly confusing.
