Famous Peoples 2.0

Okay, part two of my diabolical plan! Kiteman gave me the idea that I didn't need to use avatars, but something that represents the person. So if you would, pick the people from the list and say the object that they remind you most of.

Hacking famous brand devices

Hi, I have spend a lot of time hacking some scanner CCD sensor from different brand of scanner on the last few weeks to build a touch screen. My idea was to make a database on the different PIN of the CCD of several brand of scanner to help people building their own. It's not always  that easy to play with an oscilloscope to reverse engineer those. But I was a bit hesitating on posting brand name like HP or CANON and explain how to crack the sensors. I wasn't sure if I could have some problem... Any ideas? Thanks

World Record Gaming Gathering.

A total of 342 gamers dressed as icons from games such as Final Fantasy, Zelda and Solid Snake in east London as part of the London Games Festival.They narrowly broke a record of 337 set last week in Germany.Festival director Duncan Best said: "It was a bit touch-and-go for a while but the gaming community really stepped up to the challenge."The record was verified by Guinness World Records at the Excel Centre in Docklands on Saturday.A further 50 fans in fancy dress could not take part, however, as rules stated that characters who were primarily famous from movies were disqualified."So we had people turning up dressed as Lego Batman, for example, who could not be counted," said Mr Best. Get your details right, BBC! We all know Batman is most famous from the TV show...Still, it would have been nice to see the Lego Batman costume.BBC StoryLondon Games FestivalGuinness World Records

It slowly opened its glistening fangs to reveal a second set of jaws that shot forward to kill its victims.Scientists have now discovered a fish that does the same thing.

Your urban legends

When I think of urban legends, the Mythbusters come to mind. Perhaps this is because I watch the show almost religiously, or just today's society. Although their methods are often questionable, they have put some definitive legends to the test. However, I often find myself wishing that they would test some less famous and more common everyday topics. For example: Will covering yourself in a fire blanket protect you from an explosion? Will touching an electric fence while wet short out your watch? Your thoughts?

Random GoodHart: a newly discovered LAW

I know this is kind of random, and I just now, moments ago, accidentally discovered this, but there is a GOODHART's LAW  :-) It states:   once a social or economic indicator or other surrogate measure is made a target for the purpose of conducting social or economic policy, then it will lose the information content that would qualify it to play that role. This almost sounds like a parallel to the famous Quantum Mechanics rule of effecting the state of a particle by observing it.  This bulletin was brought to you by the Totally Random Goodhart Reseach and Useless Information Recovery team.  Thanks for reading.

One was eventually made in 1991  for the Science Museum in London. Don't live in London? Too far to drive? Well, no worries, Andrew Carol has built a working difference engine from LEGO's and with a kind donation of server space from Steve Wozniak, he's posted a very detailed explanation of his project so you can build one too! acarol.woz.org/

My first Free3D print

Three months ago I submitted instructables into one of the challenges, and was selected to received Free 3D print. I chose to have my 3x3x3" 3D print instead of a famous 3D instructable robot. Two weeks ago, my 3D print got delivered in the 123D box, to my door. Also included in the box are an instructables patch and stickers. My 3D print is the case for my RevIO, an Arduino compatible board. A prototype that I'm made recently. (https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-The-RevIO-Arduino-Clone-My-Way/) Thank you very much for the Free3D Print program and everyone behide this program, otherwise I won't be able to see my project moving forward to this point.

Lego Creations

I came across not one, but two very cool Lego sculptures. The first is a perfect rendering of Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye, one of the most famous houses in architecture. Make sure to check out the original pictures of the house along with the Lego reproduction if you haven't seen the house before.The second is a must-see for all Star Wars fans: a nearly 4,000 piece, $400 dollar Lego Death Star diorama. It comes complete with Lego-ized versions of all of the major characters and depicts 14 scenes from the IV and VI. Bad news for all you Jar Jar Binks fans, though: Lego Jar Jar is not included in this set.Villa Savoye via MakeDeath Star

4chan views Instructables as a high standard

Just a random tidbit: 4chan is considered the bad side of the surface internet, full of trolls, disgusting imagery, and all kinds of things your average person doesn't need to know about. You may have heard of them in relationship to ANONYMOUS, #cutforbeiber, or any one of a number of cyber bullying incidents. Anywho, 4chan actually has some pretty well instituted rules, and it even has a DIY forum, although you have been warned about what you may find out how to make there. Well, it so happens that the famous site looks to Instructables as a standard of content and how to share projects. Picture is a direct copypasta from the rules.

USA USB: A Case Study In Internet Fame

Last week, fi5e posted the USA - USB: American Flag USB Memorial here on Instructables. The project was a quick one, but the execution and goofiness in both the project and the video was excellent. The USA USB was clearly aiming for geek cred (despite using two USB ports instead of one) and pretty much nailed it. Now we learn that the whole thing was an exercise in being Internet famous. While the USA USB didn't have quite the impact it should've, here's a breakdown of what the goals were and 8 tips for getting more attention to your contribution to the Interwebs.

Anyone know how to make those trippy/psychedelic light shows?

You know those "acid shows" or "light shows" that were really popular in the sixties? (I think Joshua White was a pretty famous light show artist...) Anyone know how to make cool ones? I mean... it seems pretty simple, and I get the basic concept. Colored filters, swirls of colored oil... and water... and alcohol maybe, And a projector... but is there a "proper" way or something? Probably not... but anything you know on the sibject helps. Any ideas? Or... instructbales? Oh. P.S. An instructable on Underwater Light shows would be welcome too. Woah. I just had an awesome idea. But I'm keeping it to myself for now.
