Crazy Darth Vader Helmets

All these Darth-Helmets are part of a traveling exhibition known as "THE VADER PROJECT"" The Vader Project is curated by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys. Kelemer and Marks gathered close to 100 of the hottest underground and pop surrealist painters, artists , and designers to participate. Each artist was given a 1:1 scale authentic prop replica of the actual Darth Vader helmet used in the Star Wars films. Each helmet served as a blank canvas for each artist to paint, design, mash up, and customize. "Hundreds more photos here !

K'nex Spider-man Web-Shooter

I made a k'nex Gun that does not require the power of a spring or rubberband; It's made purely out of k'nex. I didn't really know what to call it, but I got the idea after I noticed that when holding it, it looks like you're shooting webs like Spider-man. I got the idea when I was watching a History Channel program about historical assassinations, and a famous gun that was examined was a gun that shoots when you make a hand-shaking gesture. The k'nex gun shoots about 30 feet. It also has an auto-ejecting shell, but it's single shot. You also have to load the bullet in cartridges. Baed on the definition, do you Instructablers think that this would be a worthy Instructable, or should it stay as a forum? P.S. I'll have pictures of it up soon.

To Whom it May Concern

To Whom it May Concern:I recently discovered a website dedicated to knex: http://www.knextoyzone.com/. However, on this website I found three familiar guns found on Instructables and KnexInnovation. Two are Dsman's, and one is Loosewire's. They are found by clicking on "Gallery" amd then the subcategory "Guns". If you didn't post these guns and knew nothing of this, please speak now and maybe we can e-mail the creator of this website that their users are commiting plagiarism. Thank-you for your time.

Anyone know where to find or how to build a high quality Darth Vader Voice changer?

I am always looking into ways to improve or upgrade my "Movie Quality" Darth Vader costume.  The only thing that I am really lacking is a voice changer.  I do not want one that makes me sound like a robot I want one that will make me sound as much as Darth Vader as possible.  I know it was James Earl Jones' voice but to make my voice sound deeper and metalic would top off my costume very well.  If anyone can help I would be grateful!!

K'nex Ball Machines

I've noticed that there has been a recent rise of ball machines being made by the k'nexers. I think this is great. I personally love ball machines and have made 4 of them. I am currently working on a 5th one which is approximately 170 cm. or 67 inches tall. It has 4 paths so far. Comment if you are currently building or planning a ball machine.

A Star Wars style moto helmet would be so unshakeably awesome that every road user to see you would come to a stop, jaws dropped and shaking violently. This is what we want.Requirements:1. Should closely resemble a ST or DV or should recreate the feel of the characters in the films.2. Should be as safe as a normal helmet, of course.3. That's it!

Any ideas for what i can do with an empty Star Wars Darth Maul Lightsaber Candy Stick?

Picked one up for under a dollar at Salvos last year, and it's been sitting at the bottom of my wardrobe since. I have yet to open it up, but I reckon it should be completely hollow inside. It's about 33 cm long, 3 cm wide at the emitter heads and about an inch wide around the middle. Also, there is a blade on each end similar in construction to the toys you see in department stores, but only 12cm long. What should I do with it?

How to scale papercraft and where to print? Answered

We are planning to do several models from Star Wars as Halloween Costumes. I have a papercraft model of an AT-ST, Darth Vaders Tie Fighter, and an Xwing. And potentially a millenium Falcon. These are currently 1/16" models.  Our plan is to scale them up to about 6 feet to use as a pattern then put them over cardboard or corrugated board. What is the best/cheapest way to achieve this?

DGM's Blazer Sniper Rifle

I am reviewing Darth Gecko Man's latest sniper! What to expect: Strength: 8/10 Why: Small chance it will break. Range: 7/10 Why: Too effected by wind with the original bullet Looks: 8/10 Why: Looks good. It is nice and small. Parts: Handle: 5/10 Why: Way too small. Cant fit my hand Stock: 0/10 Why: No Stock!!!! Barrel: 0/10 Why: No Barrel! Fake barrel: 8/10 Why: Works easily and look good Bipod: 0/10 Why: No bipod!!! (This is not necissary. I am just noting that it does not have one. Please no more argueing) Modability: 10/10 Why: This gun is very easy to modify and would be great for beginners to play around with. Even I made a mod of it by adding a stock and moving the front handle to the rear and making the rear handle part of the stock. In the end: Erganomics are not too good. Feels too small. BUT in a knex war it would be good not as a sniper but as a secondary weapon. The trigger system cant hold too much pressure but for a medium range weapon it is good Creator: Darth Gecko Man Gun: Blazer v1 Sniper Rifle

Software for slicing 3d model into layers for printing, cutting and assembly from card, layer by layer

So I'm looking for software that can cut a 3d model into variable layer height for printing on card and assembling like a 3d sculpture ( see Darth Vader - http://www.flickr.com/photos/ciberdoc/3895118480/ ).

3 year old explains Star Wars in 90 seconds

This is just too cute. The video is of a 3 year old little girl explaining Star Wars very entertainingly. She mentions "a garage sale, but with robots" and explains that "the shiny guy always worries". Oh, and she warns not to mess with Darth Vader - he'll get ya! As she says, it's an exciting movie.I must admit to having never seen any Star Wars (so I can't vouch for its accuracy) - but hey, after watching this video, I don't need to! :D

leather notepad case with spring close hinge... automatically closes when you let go of cover.

I have been looking for leather notepad case with spring close hinge. Has anyone seen such and animal or know of a small hinge that could be modded on to a leather notepad case/folder? I had thought these were called snap-cases but can't find anything like what I am describing above. The memory I have of my Grandfather's was a spring loaded piano hinge on a leather folder/case for letter size pad.  I would like to find one for a small notepad. The main point is that it should automatically close.  NOT automatically open. Thanks!
