Just found an interesting website I thought I'd share:http://dangerouslyfun.com/They've got a fairly small set of projects but they look pretty well done. From the About page:"DangerouslyFun.com provides instructions for creating various physical devices, many of which are dangerous. This information is provided in recognition that dangerous things are sometimes really fun."Amen brother!

Hi, I want to make a fun lifting mechanism which I can use to raise critical beverages, light office supplies, etc., to the loft in our house, where my office is. It could be manual or motor driven. It can brace, lean against or grip the square handrail and square balusters, but can't mar or be screwed into any woodwork or flooring. Ideas?

I've got some leftover battery fluid I used to try (unsuccessfully) to resurrect an old motorcycle battery. I was just going to neutralize it with water and baking soda and pour it down the drain, but I thought I'd ask for suggestions. What say you?

Reed switches are electro-mechanical devices that opens or closes a circuit when a megnetic field is present. They come in normally open and normally closed designs and range from the size of a grain of rice all the way up to several inches long. A relay, another electro-mechanical device, is comprised of a reed switch and an electromagnet trigger built into one housing. Common uses for reed switches (not counting relays which are used in virtually all electronic devices) include the 'pick ups' on bicycle computers and the sensors on window and door alarms. I just ordered a bunch of reed switches and I need your help in coming up with ideas for what to do with them. Post up your ideas for some things that could be made or modified to be triggered by a magnet coming in close proximity to a reed switch. Remember- the magnet does not have to touch the switch, just get close enough that the magnetic force trips the switch. The stranger and sillier your ideas are the better. Note: this is not a contest and there are no prizes. by posting an idea you are giving your consent for anyone who reads it to use your idea. Posts about integrating reed switches into knex firearms will be ignored (no offence, it's just not my cup of tea).

Are there any knex guns that are good for just playing with. not specifically for war. range doesn't have to be huge but should be ok. It also would be nice if it is something innovative. I right now have a HIGHLY modified desperado pistol. it is great but isn't fun to play around with anymore.

Well, I'm not very good at soldering, for one simple reason, I've not done alot of it since my school days.This kind of solution is perfect for someone like me, who often only needs a simple led circuit to hook up inside a prop.It would save me having to get the soldering iron out, and could easily be an advantage when getting circuits into strange shapes.Carbon is one of our favorite elements. It makes diamonds, it makes all known life possible, and it makes pencils (and who doesn't love pencils?) Also, it seems that carbon fullerenes (buckeyballs, nanotubes, etc) are going to do a lot in our future. Time to bring a little of that microcarbon goodness into your home and make it work for you now. "Wire Glue" Conductive Glue uses microcarbon technology to make a glue that also conducts electricity.Via Thinkgeek
