fallout pip-boy 3000

I am wondering if someone can make a good,but affordable,fallout pip-boy case for my old iPod touch 3rd gen.i know it is ancient piece of technology but i have my new one and i don't wanna seal it in a case.i would hope it looks like a perfect pip-boy 3000 from fallout 3 or fallout new Vegas because im gonna probably give it to my friend for his birthday.i will be sealing it inside but can you some how make all the functions(power button,charger port,etc.)NOTE IT HAS NO CAMERA SO YOU DON'T NEED TO ADD A CAMERA HOLE.with the home button i realize you can have the scroll thing be a button to use on top of the button.the reason im not doing it myself is because i have no idea how.

Doctor drills into boy's head to save his life

The regular household drill is a wonderful thing. It can be used for drilling holes in wood, scrambling eggs, and even drilling into a boy's skull to drain it of blood clots. Yikes!Dr Rob Carson performed the procedure on Nicholas Rossi, 13, after the boy fell off his bike and hit his head.The doctor had never attempted the surgery before, and had to be talked through the operation by a Melbourne neurosurgeon.The boy's father said the doctor's improvisation had saved his son's life.But Dr Carson told reporters: "It's not a personal achievement, it is just a part of the job."

Nintendo DS / Original Game Boy Mod

Don't know if anyone ever thought about doing this. I searched the site and didn't see anything like it so I thought I would put the idea out there. Just wondering what people thought about the prospect of modding an original Game Boy to be the shell for a Nintendo DS or DS Lite. I personally think there is enough room to do. I would try to do it myself, but I just don't have the techinical know-how or a spare DS.

"Boy's Life" Archives

 http://boyslife.org/wayback/ I most remember "scouts in action" these were cautionary tales, as well as how to get yourself or a stranger out of a tight spot. They seem to be about page 45 to 65. Common topics: "trapped in quicksand" or " when the cave collapsed" or "the chemistry set explosive went off in his hand!!" But there was so much more, like how to make stuff with sticks, rope and knots. So much of my kidhood was howto based on scout stuff. I'm tryin to figure out how to paste  pics from the mag at the above link.

Hey guys. I just wanted to put a quick message out to all of you. I am leaving. To be honest I havn't been able to build anything major since the I bow, also my priorities have changed, it is getting to the buisiness end of the school year here so free time is at a premium. I also have my new guitar, facebook, youtube and modern warfare 2 all fighting for my attention. I will be leaving the site and knex for the forseeable future effective immediately (not like mota boi and KGB who just hung around) My facebook is private so don't try to find it. If you must contact me, send a message on youtube. If you want to get your ass handed to you on MW2 my psn is tehlogicboy. Well thats all for now. goodbye.

New slingshot mech/trigger

I want to keep this brief whilst still remaining informitive, please excuse hurried typing hey guys been playing around with knex and found a mech that works. camera cable still lost, paint diagram below instead. to load band is attached to anchor at front, rod it then push/pulled through mech till trigger clickes into place, pulled further and rod is removed, ammo carefully placed back into mech (hollow back) trigger can then be pulled to fire. resultant gun is basicly silent, only one band can be used at a time. plans for a repeating version are still sitting around in my head. sorry for brief explanation, was kinda busy seeya later

the new shotgun on the block -EDIT-

-EDIT- Ok guys I sorry about not getting the pictures up but I do have an explanation. the picture shown was taken with my father's camera as I still cannot find the charging cable for mine. He "needs" his camera for work so I must wait indefinitely until I can "borrow" it to get some more pictures --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Modern Warfare 2 confiscated? No computer or tv until 4 o'clock? what am I supposed to do? Well here's the result of about 3 hours of boredom. Its a single shot shotgun that fires shells, however these shells are a red rod long and hold 3 white rods, plus reloading takes less than 10 seconds with a bit of practice. Range isn't too impressive, roughly 5 metres for 3 white rods and up to about 10 for a yellow.  More pictures will be up once I have finished exams on Friday this week,  45º handles FTL!!!

A New Gun by Logic Boy?

Hey guys If you haven't noticedyou will see that I haven't made anything new since my PP19, everything that I have made has either been an improvement to something else or I never got around to finishing it. well my creative slump is over. I recently got some new knex and I now have built a new gun *gasp* it is actually the full completion of an older concept of mine that worked really well but wasn't exactly what I wanted originally. So I now have a pretty awsoime new gun. Pictures will be posted this weekend. Until then try to guess what it is. Hint: I have posted the name of the gun somewhere Good luck.

UPDATE, I now have everyone needed to start the 'ible, for those who can't find it go to: you->instrucables->collaborations. UPDATE: I  have decided to start this abit early as I would like to have this out for christmas, failing that, new years. to all those participating, please remain impartial. Hey guys! I have had this idea for awhile now, what I want to do is a collaboration ible for a realistic knex war. I know jammy already did one, but I find his rules a bit unrealistic. What I want from you guys is anything related to a knex war, things like: -choosing weapons -rules (must be usable, like the KI ones) -different gametypes or even little topics like -Tr vs Rectangle Let me know if you are Interested. People so far Killer~SafeCracker - rules Dj Radio - Types of guns (only if he is impartial) logic boy (Me)- General tactics and the intro Silent Assasin21 - types of guns for different environments TheDunkis - sidearms Hiyadudez - assault weapons shadowninja31 - snipers and sniping jollex - just stuff knex gun builder - game types The Jamalam - game specific tatics If you want to ask me anything, feel free.

Attention! All other Logic Bows are now obsolete

Well I took apart my sniper because it had really bad range, and I though well what now. I built a Logic Bow The new version is shorter, cleaner and much better looking. It also is a heck of alot more powerful. The new design incorperates a pin guide that prevents the pin from lifting when fired (this was my biggest gripe with the original) It is better than any other version in every way. I will be posting this as a seperate instructable as basicly the entire gun has been redesigned. Unfortunately I cannot post any pictures until I have found the charging cable for my camera ='(. thats all for now.

Today I found one of my knex guns reposted under a different name without permission from me or ever credit given in the instructable. I posted the original under this license:    This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms.

All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature. hmmm seems like a breech to me... here is the original posted by me here is the other guy's the only difference is that he stuck on some pointless additions. below is an image of the original instructable as I found it.

RGB TV Output of Gameboy Color?

 I'm absolutely stumped by this. I have my gf playing my old gameboy color but the screen cover is pretty scratched up and I don't feel like peeling it off until I find something to buff the scratches out. I've nearly googled it to death and all I come up with is random websites selling gameboy advanced tv out adapters. I know this HAS to be possible as www.hackaday.com/2008/11/29/gameboy-color-on-an-led-matrix/ The guy says in his comments on the youtube page that he does IN fact have a real live gameboy color hooked up to the LED matrix. Yet he does not explain how he hooked it up, obviously he did it somehow. Does ANYONE have any bloody clue as to how this is done? I'm not afraid to do some soldering as I know that'll probably be required but really how hard can it be.

Performance.

We all want our guns to shoot far and to fire fast, but how much performance do we actually need? Makers of Oodammo pistols boast that they shoot 60 - 70 feet, but there is no way that you can reliably hit a moving target with a knex gun at that range with any weapon, especially pistols. A good weapon should be able to fire fast, and be accurate to say 30 feet. This would allow the said gun to hit targets ar range reliably. Think about it.

PP19 Bizon

Hey guys, heres my early Xmas present to you, A PP19 Bizon, I decided to give it a go because I noticed that there hasn't been one posted, I wanted to give you guys a Xmas gift and I was bored, It shoots blue rods, havn't tested the range, but I'm expecting about 10m, nothing to special. I only spent a few hours on this so it may not be as good as I can get it. so tell me what do you think?

The GOP25

I was bored again so I made a modded version of my Oodammo pistol, now it has 17 extra shots, making it the highest capacity oodammo pistol that I know of. picture 1 is the gun against my computer screen (yay instructables!) picture 2 is a comparison with the original and picture 3 is a better veiw of the gun, I have also included the video of the original gun (it works the same but with 17 more bullets) Oh in case you were wondering the name stands for Generic Oodammo Pistol with the number of shots after it

Logic Bow

FROM NOW ON I WILL NOT BE REPLYING TO QUESTIONS THAT HAVE ALREADY ANSWERED BY THE VIDEO OR THE WRITING BELOW, EXCEPT TO SAY "READ THE TOPIC AND WATCH THE VIDEO" UPDATE: The concept behind The Logic Bow (put simply so everyone can understand) By using a ratchet system to hold the bands behind the pin you can: @ Decrease pin friction in barrel @ Increase pullback distance @ Increase power @ Make the pin easier to pullback @ Have a simple rail system I have now uploaded a clip of the firing system in action for those of you who don't understand how it works UPDATE: HOW IT WORKS This is a pin type gun, not a slingshot. It uses a ratchet system to hold the rubber bands, therefore increasing the amount of bands that can be used and increasing ease of pullback. These bands are released when the trigger is pulled, propelling the pin into the bullet. This means that the effective pullback distance is increased, therefore increasing the range and power. well here is the first "new thing" I have done in ages, (the last Truly innovative thing I built was the D-Frag grenade) the Logic Bow. It uses an all new 4-stage firing system that runs between two rails (I tried using a dual rail system but that didn't work out). So far I have the mech working, but it needs the rest of the body, the bow, a handle and probably a stock. It is a single shot that should have more power than a pin gun, the really cool thing about it is that although it uses a pin mech the pin takes almost no effort to slide back. I will keep you updated as the project progresses, Feel free to ask any questions. Update: I finished the entire gun and uploaded a couple of pics (see below) This will soon be posted.

Bolt Action Mech for a Knex Bullpup Gun.

This is an idea that I have had for a while now, it allows a bullpip gun to have a full black rod pin but with a more realistic design. the idea is using a shotened bolt that moves right back then pushes the ammo into the chamber. I'll see if I can get a pic up of what I mean

Why you can never have a "true" knex semi auto with decent power/range.

Ok here goes I will try to simplify my theory down a bit so everyone can understand: basicly energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be converted, eg kinetic into heat, chemical into kinetic ect. Knex guns are no exception, the enery has to come from somewhere, in most guns this takes the form of pulling back a pin or rubberbands to create potential energy, this is released when the trigger is pulled, this potential energy is converted into kinetc energy and this is how the bullet is fired. A semi automatic gun is required to fire every time the trigger is pulled, but the energy still has to come from somewhere. RBG's take this into account as each band is pulled back and has potential energy stored, however many knexer's opinions differ on whether this is truly semi automatic, many calling this type of gun a psuedo semi auto. Other guns use the energy imparted on pulling the trigger to create the potential energy to power the bullet, this is considered to be a true semi auto, however the main drawback of this system is that the amount of energy that can be transfered from the trigger to the bullet is very limited, therefore this type of mechinism has limited power. So if the problem is energy how do we solve this? one possible answer is to have an extra source of energy, such as a motor or a winding system that puts extra energy back into the system, however this approach will not give you a "true" semi auto as you will have to have an external source of energy, that and the fact that knex motors do not have the power and torque needed for this system. So what's your opinion, do you have anything to add?
