While the autoparts place was testing my battery(projected to take 1.5 hrs) I drove home with just the emergency jump box running the system. Probably not factory recommended for long durations, but it was just a mile or 2. What's the worst that could happen?

I am hoping someone can help me out. I would like to know how to program the music box cylinder to play a specific tune. Does anyone know anything that may be able to help me in terms of building my own mechanism from scratch? Thanks YelloTrace

I'm been looking for instructions on making a box to dry a 8.5" x 11" piece of "film". I can make the box, it's the electronics part I can't figure out. My idea is that a small heater on one end of the box, and a small exhaust fan on the other end will be sufficient to dry my film. Does this make sense?

Sorry, no hilarious picture - but a thought exercise!Imagine a steel box (to shield the contents from the universe) that contains a cat. Inside this box is a device that contains a gas which may, or may not, cause instant death to the cat. One hour after the device is released in the steel box (with cat) - what is the state (assume only two states - alive or dead) of the cat?Mind you, you have no method to measure the results of the possibly poisonous device - after all, measure the result and you change it! I imagine there are a few of you that have read about this very scenario in an academic setting :)

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....

Hi everybody First of all I want to excuse myself if my english is not perfect. I have a project in mind for a while. I work on construction in Canada and using caulking everyday it get hard to use it during winter if we don't have access to put them inside. So I wanted to build a little box with an heating system that could work on a jobsite generator. I'm thinking about a plywood box nothing fancy as long it work. I though about place 10 ABS/PVC tube that fit perfectly the caulking tube with alots of hole in it so the heat can pass throught it. So the caulking tube can be reached right from the top of the box and due to the hole it won't overheat. So that's the idea so far. What heating system should I use for this system(I don't want to spend alot on money). Maybe I'm thinking about 1 or 2 computer fan to make the heat uniform. I'm thinking about a space where I can put my spare glove to get them dry do you have an idea for that ? And finaly I'm open to any suggestion that can get the box even better ! :) Thanks you

On March 5th at the New England Aquarium octopus exhibit, a 7-foot long giant Pacific octopus climbed inside of a 15 inch-inch-wide box. The box was part of a set of acrylic puzzles that the aquarium uses to challenge the octopi during feeding time to keep them stimulated. Normally, the octopus opens the boxes sequentially to solve the puzzle and get its dinner. Last week however, the octopus found a crack in the largest box and rather than opening it, decided that it would crawl right inside.Aquarist Bill Murphy elaborates...What are the boxes made out of?The boxes are made of acrylic and were created by one of our long time volunteers in the fishes department.How many boxes are there?There are 3 different size boxes with different locks that are puzzles for the octopus to open.How do they work?I place one or two live crabs inside the box and the octopus has to learn how to open the box to get the food. I start the octopus off with the small box and once he has mastered the lock I switch to another box and once he has mastered each individual box I put a box inside a box to keep him active and challenged.What happened today?The largest box was actually broken by another octopus here at the aquarium three years ago so today the octopus decided to go through that broken opening instead of unlocking the large outside box to get to smaller box inside with the live crabs. This is the first time it has been witnessed here at the aquarium because they don't always open the box immediately and will wait till the night when they are more active to hunt for food. It's been a very fun occasion for visitors and staff!If octopi could live longer on land, we'd be their slaves for sure.Via New England Aquarium

I'm about to post an instructable about applique with some close up (but not blurry) photos that will really benefit from some yellow boxes for explantations of what I am showing, but for some reason I am not able to put yellow boxes in - is is because I have a Mac? When I tried to do this for my last instructable I was not able to. Is there a trick to it other than the instructions which I did follow. Thank you. PS I don't have a mouse with a right and left buttons (as refered to by Lemonie in his excellent answer to this very same question by some one else

Does anyone know of a splitter box of any sort that would split the signal from the output of a minidisc player? At present my band plays gigs with the use of a backing track with keyboards and bass on. Is there any way the Minidisc outputs could feed my onstage monitor and the P.A. mixer simultaneously? The small mixer that the MD goes into hasnt any aux channels or monitor sends with which to use. Thanks.

One thing that the "stats" (things like ratings and views) of instructables i think DESPERATELY needs is a did it option. this means that you have actually made/did/modified whatever the instructables instructs you to do. i propose a little check box and a stat called Did Its, this would show how many people actually made what was instructed in your instructable. i dont know about you guys but i think this would be AWSOME. please the more attention this topic gets the more attentions it gets from the admins. plz ewhelm

I really love what this person did https://www.instructables.com/id/SF6IAZEFPKF9VUM/But I was wondering does anyone have any simpler projects? I wanted to make a box to fill with gifts with a hidden drawer/compartment where I could put a scrapbook. Its a gift for my boyfriend and where this box is very nice I dont think I would be able to accomplish something like that being a newbie to work working.?
At school they showed us a video of a device that supposedly you could place on a cardboard box and music would play through the box. How can I make this? I was thinking on using a piezo element. Any ideas????P.S. you would plug it in to a headphone jack.

Looking for tips for efficient design of wooden hexagonal boxes, bottoms, and lids. Jewelry boxes, canisters, etc. How to clamp for glue or air brads - I'm thinking a hexagonal jig, but that's potentially a lot of jigs for different-size boxes.

I am making my daughter a wooden jewelry box and want to spiff it up with brass fittings - corners, edges, etc. I can't find a supplier. All local stores have cabinet fittings ( drawer pulls, hinges, etc.). Any suggestions? If I bought thin brass sheets would I need special tools to make my own fittings? i want nice sharp 90 degree angles and curved edges.

In my quest for weeding out my less than professional looking projects, I am in need to learning a new skill.Does anyone have recommendations for a resource on how to upholster a box? Key points including the box material is a thin plywood which probably won't hold up to staples (thicker woods are heavier and I have a weight restriction for this project: lighter = better). My material will be a marine vinyl (for weather protection) which does have some stretch to it - I'm also going to put a thin foam backer for that extra supple feeling.Recommendations for obscure compound curves would be nice too.I'm armed with a sewing machine, limited sewing skills, bandages and some scrap material. <-- that on top of the typical measuring instruments.

I am looking for designs for "secret boxes" that could stand up to being permanently outdoors, most likely mounted on some surface. As we speak, I'm running some searches here on Instructibles, but thought I should also go straight to the creators. Also... please let me know if this might be better posted in another forum. Thanks!!!!!

There's been a bug that I've been noticing for a while and I'm hoping you guys can find some way to correct it. I've noticed that every time I get in a long conversation with somebody, mine (and theirs) responses slowly move to the right until it's completely hidden from view to the point where you can't even hit the reply button. Is there any known way to fix this?

Normally, a light box uses fluorescent lamps (e.g. 36 watts Philips Lamp) and electronic ballasts to emit light. However, it consumes too much electricty and the life of lamps is short. Therefore, I would like to replace fluorescent lamps with LEDs.

I am planning to build a parcel delivery box that would accept large box deliveries from things I order on amazon namely. The boxes vary in size but I am wondering if anyone would weigh in on how large of a package you think should fit. I have already decided the drop box will be cut into the wall on the side of my garage where I am relocating my mail slot. That means it will fit between two studs approximately 16" apart, but the height is open to negotiation. Thanks guys.

Around New Year's Day, my family celebrated Christmas (had to wait for some family to visit) and one of my presents was a flat, rectangular cigar box with some gift cards and certificates. I haven't done much with the box, but after comparing it to the size of my laptop, they are roughly the same dimensions! Given that this is a wooden cigar box, would it be possible to turn it into a low-power laptop computer? Since its wood, it would probably be better to put a screen and keyboard setup inside the box instead of the whole shabang (small hard drive, motherboard, etc.) while having the main hardware inside of an external tower. But if it was set up in this fashion, could it still be called a laptop?

A news article in Nature reports on a group that has constructed three dimensional boxes, including a lockable lid, from DNA. Using specifically designed oligonuclitides, the boxes self-assemble chemically from long strands of DNA in solution. According to the article, "It takes only an hour or two for billions of boxes to form by themselves."The article include both "artists conceptions" and electron-microscope images of the actual objects.Update 13 May 2009: The Nature article above has been put into restricted access. Here is a Science News report which is not restricted.
