I'm really bored and I want to build something neat, can someone suggest something cool I could do with these parts?? Armed with soldering gun and other parts in my parts bins, I'm sure I could make something cool/useful?? (P.S as far as the capacitors, I wouldn't mind making a rail gun) I have this so far I want to use: Bank of capacitors (several large amplifier capacitors and some smaller power supply caps) One rather large relay switch (I tested it today, it works!) One "temporary" toggle switch, it does NOT stay on when you flick it, dual pole Does anyone have any idea?? I also have things like hundreds of smaller caps (is it possible to make an effective capacitor bank with tonnes of tiny capacitors?? I also have oodles of ferrite cores and RF chokes of different sizes (I was wondering, would the larger RF chokes I have, work as subwoofer coils??)

As a college sophomore i have entirely too much time on my hands. I would like to get a new hobby and suggestions would be most helpful. If it is any help, please note that I enjoy hiking trips, being outside in general, building things and creating mischief. I am pretty much computer illiterate as well. Thanks All.

Right now, I'm sick. Pretty much not willing to get out of my chair. I've been trolling the internet aimlessly for hours, and I'm quite frankly tired of it. Any suggestions on interesting Instructables-type sites? Or any other science/DIY/art sites? Just something interesting.

I have 2 very boring old brass spittoons I'm converting into planters. Is there chemical compound or something else I can apply to the brass to change the appearance? I'd like to jazz them up without using paint. Any ideas?

So up in Toronto they built a 29.3 meter tall tower of LEGO. It's a new world record. Some "master builders" were overseeing it. There are images of flags on the side.But still, it's just a tower of LEGO. Doesn't really inspire me, but maybe you guys think differently. Am I missing something? Full story

According to TubeMogul, the audience drop-off rate for how-to videos is faster than general videos.People Find "How-To" Videos BoringBad news for the many venture-backed "how-to" video startups such as eHow and Howcast,: People find their genre less engaging than the average Web video.Keeping tabs on some 23 million video streams, Web video services firm TubeMogul says that how-to videos lose 15.21% more viewers after 10 seconds and 16.81% more viewers after 20 seconds than the average video.When we started Instructables, one of the key features was our step-by-step format. As a human, you really can only do one thing at once, and multi-tasking is just quickly switching between tasks. So, we figured any complex process could be broken down into a series of steps that followed what its creator did. Video is perfect for showing techniques or motion that are difficult to describe in text and pictures. However, when video is used to show things better seen as text and still images, it gets boring. I've always felt that video plays a role within a full step-by-step set of instructions, but can never eclipse them.So, the take-home from the graph should be clear to future Instructables authors: keep your videos short and to the point if you want anyone to watch them. Save the rest for text and images, and the whole Instructable will be greater than the sum of its parts.

We all have been bored at some point in our life. Most of the time when we're bored we let our true nature come out. Songs have been writen this way. If you even tap your finger at school at the end of a test that means you enjoy music or making it. What have you been inspired to do, or make from boredom? I have made many plans and ideas from my bored. i.e. 4 wheel bike (not tried) Custom shirts ( a work in progress) Duct Tape stuff ( oh what a success!)

Well, my nephew C***** (He's about 6 months) came over, and he was a bit fussy. So I wanted to make him something to keep him occupied, but it had to have no small parts. So I made him a little rattle thing. You can't get the green rods out without taking the whole thing apart. Which is really difficult. I'll also try to incorporate it into a "noisy ball machine" I'm going to make.
