Liquid nitrogen at the doctor

No real point to this but I wanted to post anyways because it is kinda cool.  Went to the doctors office with my wife today because she had this spot on her ear that was bothering her.  Well the doctor wanted to freeze it with liquid nitrogen to get rid of it.  Well of course my ears perked right up because to be honest this was going to be the same time I was even in the same room as this *cool* stuff.  I asked her to pack some up for me to take home.  She laughed and said she wished she could but did not have anything to transport it with.  But she brought in a styrofoam cup about half full of it.  She used a quetip to apply it to the spot on the ear three times.  Then handed me the cup and said "I know the geek inside you wants to play with it.".  Our doctor knows us well.  But the bummer part was that I did not have anything to put in it.  So since the only thing I had to freeze was myself I put the quetip on my finger.  ......Yes this hurt.  But it was still fun.  Then I was left to just watch it boil and then blow on it once in a while.  But when we were leaving I handed the cup back to her since I figured I could not leave with it and it was almost gone anyways.  Then she said something she liked to do with it was to pour it on the floor.  I was pretty cool to watch the "fog" it kicked up and listen to the floor crackle. Anyways, that is my story of the day.  I did not get to do much with it, but it was still *cool*.

10th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver

Attention all Doctor Who fans! Here is something that ought to get you all thinking - the 10th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver (which works in the dark... heh heh, get it? Only Whovians would get that...). The original idea came from my youngest brother, who is a big Doctor Who fan, and while this "replica" is not very accurate (it is hard to get very accurate with such K'NEX pieces as I have), it does look pretty good all the same. What do you guys think? -The Red Book of Westmarch

Building a TARDIS... Doctor Who.

My friend George and I suddenly decided yesterday that we'd really love to build a TARDIS.Considering this thing is 8+ feet tall, and we'd like it to be portable... does anyone have any suggestions for materials? I think more than anything I just need to go to Home Depot and look for supplies. Any brainstorming help will be appreciated. :DOh, and if you don't know what a TARDIS is... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TARDISOr, see below.

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."

Brain Doctor Uses Cordless Drill to Remove Tumors

A British doctor is in the news for using a cordless drill, a Bosch model, to drill into patients' heads and remove tumors in a Ukrainian hospital. While cordless drills are fantastic things it's surprising to see brain surgery as one of their uses. Now if only Bosch would put that on the package.Minutes later the team of doctors, including one of Britain's most eminent brain surgeons, begins to break into the skull of their fully conscious patientœ with a £30 Bosch PSR960 handy-man's cordless drill. Amazingly, and despite the low-voltage tool running out of power halfway through the process, Dolishny's operation is a success, with his tumour skilfully excavated at the hands of Henry Marsh.The procedure, captured as part of a documentary to be screened on BBC2 later this month, was a routine triumph for Marsh, who regularly takes time off as a consultant at St George's hospital in south London to travel to Ukraine and save lives despite having access only to primitive tools. Also great is this list of makeshift ideas at the bottom of the article:- In 1995 two doctors on a flight from Hong Kong to Britain operated on a woman with a collapsed lung using a scalpel, a knife and fork and a coathanger to push in a catheter.- In Iraq in 2004, an American medical journalist removed a bullet from a marine's head with a drill used to put up a tent.- In 2003 Aron Ralston, an American climber, cut off his arm with a penknife after it became trapped under a boulder in Utah.- The following year Ines Ramirez Perez, a Mexican, delivered her son by caesarean section with the help of three stiff drinks and a kitchen knife.

Arduino controlled tardis light beacon with sound

Ok so I'm exceedingly new to using an arduino micro controller. I actually purchased it specifically for this project, after seeing someones prototype on youtube. I figured, eh how hard could it be? Very... I just can not figure it out. Anyway I'm looking for help with both the circuit and code and I'm willing to find and/or buy just about whatever to get it working. It needs to play the vworp of the engine and make the beacon fade in and out by push button preferably. I have 6 white and 2 blue ultra bright LED's already. A 555 timer, 4700 microfarrad cap, I know I'll need resistors. I also have an old iPod nano 2nd gen I'm willing to sacrifice to the cause if needed, or I'll buy whatever works best. I'm desperate. I have 3 weeks until this light needs to be done, and so far it's a bust.

Will pseudo-surgery hurt if I'm asleep? Will I wake up in the process? *UPDATE* The surgery was a success! I added pics, come take a look!

So, tonight my parents are gonna remove a piece of glass that's been lodged in my foot for four years. How I got that piece of glass stuck in there was because I kicked open a glass bookshelf four years ago, when I'm still at the age of ten. I managed to live with it, but just now the piece of glass suddenly emerged from my skin. I tried removing it, but dang that was painful. So my parents decided to remove it when I'm asleep. Now, the question is, will it hurt at all? Will I wake up from the shock? Thanks in advance for answering.*UPDATE* The operation was a success! I added pics, come take a look!

A Doctor Who fan, known as Mazzmatazz, has been legally stomped on by the BBC for creating her own patterns for the Adipose and Ood creatures.She never charged for the pattern, nor did she pretend it was official, but somebody sold a completed version on ebay, so the Beeb went OTT on her.According to TechnoLlama their action has no genuine basis in law, but she caved in out of fear of corporate lawyers.The BBC's action is a real shame, because it could signal problems for the thousands of fan artists (writers, musicians, artists) around the world who express themselves (for free) through the shared ground of Doctor Who (or any other BBC drama).The knitter's websiteTechnoLlama blog postBBC slant

TARDIS Console Desk/Entertainment Center/Networking Area

In a few months, I'm going to be in a new place somewhere, and have three active computers at once, not counting laptops, and the husks of old machines. I am also running out of space for all of these things. I was trying to come up with design project to one-up my other home improvement geek friends from college, and it hit me: A TARDIS Console. Take three cheapo desks, cut the surfaces in half diagonally, and remount them on a slight angle in a hexagon. Mount the computer towers on odd segments, keyboards, phone, modem, router, etc on evens, sling a monitor on one of the segments, and throw some random sci-fi crap around it. Throw a big light or something in the center, leave some cables loose everywhere, and put a layer of appropriate paint on it. Instant TARDIS console. That's the basics of it. It wouldn't take too much money, but a bit of time to do properly, especially the angled stuff. Add a little extra cash and a lot of extra time, and maybe use plexiglass and put some LED's as backlight. Put old circuit boards under the plexiglass, maybe use an old laptop with nothing but screensaver on it on one of the panels, and put some extra time into decorating and it'll look great. Maybe even build in an amp and an old Yamaha keyboard for fun. This is just some speculation and a bit of boredom on my part. I just thought I'd throw this out there.

Doctor Who Style IR Pen With Left and Right click, Sound effects and other LEDs optional

So I want to make a "Gaming Screen" where my friends can interact with while I GM from a computer, and after doing some research, the best option would be to use the Wiimote technique. To use that, I would have to make an IR pen, and guides for that are a dime a dozen, but I want to be different, not mundane. My question is: Is there a way for me to make a wireless IR pen with two buttons that will left and right click respectively, and if it's possibie, have one color LED go off when one is clicked and another color when the other is clicked, with a possible inclusion of sounds?  To Doctor Who fans out there, I want to make my own version of the iconic Sonic Screwdriver that can be used as an IR pen. If not, it would be okay if the other LEDs and possible sounds where activated by seperate buttons independent from the Left and Right clicks, or even if it all it can do is left and right click, I just want the two buttons, everything else is simply for fun.

Boom-box ambulance

An emergency siren that alerts drivers by making their vehicles vibrate is being tested by doctors in Hampshire, England.The Howler is being used by BASICS Hampshire, a charity made up of 20 volunteer medics who attend about 750 road traffic accidents every year. The Howler sends out low bass sound that makes the car in front "shake".Dr Rob Dawes, a volunteer doctor whose full-time job is as an hospital anaesthetist and military doctor, said people get out of the way quicker when the device is used.He said: "The main problem is on the motorways where people can't hear the sirens or see you, because often they either don't look in the mirrors or they've got the radio on quite loud."What this new siren aims to do is, because they can't see you and they can't hear you, we hope that they'll be able to feel you."
