Future Instructables and New Job

Hello guys, its Zombiekiller-93 here and today I'm giving you a heads up on future Instructables because I started a new job several weeks ago and I just haven't got the time to be making new instructions or reviews but i can still build stuff. The only possible best chance of making the actually instructions/reviews is during the spring and summer holidays since that is I prefer to make them. Sorry to those that really love seeing my creations but my paid job has to come first but I will try my very best to get new stuff onto instructables. I still be leaving comments and favourites so I 'am still around.

Instructables hits the road with the Future of Sports Tour

PopSci is doing a roadshow called The Future of Sports Tour. You can learn about how science and technology are affecting the way we play and train. Golf, tennis, hockey, baseball and other sports keep evolving with the times and this is a way to see that in person. If you're in the SF bay area, New York, or Miami you can go and check it out.PopSci has also been nice enough to give us a bit of floorspace to show off three DIY games: Ladder Golf, Kubb, and Pringles Golf. You can see the games in person and see some footage of us playing them as well.If you're near any of these it should be worth the trip. And if not you can always make a set of your own and play at home!Dates:San Francisco (Great Mall) - July 18+19New York (Smith Haven Mall) - July 26+27Miami (Miami International) - August 2+3 Future of Sports Tour

Finding out about forthcoming contests.

I'm not sure if this has been asked before although I do seem to have a vague recollection of someone mentioning it. Is there any way of finding out what contests are planned for say the next month or so?

Where to go.

I am 22 from SE Asia, I am working as a programmer. A self-taught guitar player, that loves building project on electronics and wood work. I have been contemplating of moving out from my country, maybe in the next 2-3 years, but I am not sure where and what skills should I keep on improving if I want to emigrate to another country. What skills that I have now or I don't have should I improve or learn to be able to financially support myself in another country. Thank you for any advice or insight you can give.

Anyone want to Co-Create the future?

Hi all sydney instructables and indestructables - i just love all this stuff and i am sure some of you are just as passionate. i am running a futures festival and currently in open innovation/open production mode - ie., we all get together and just make a really cool festival. Its called Live Futures 2020: A World of Opportunity. We are creating interaction spaces for the public, particularly young people, futurists, scientists, inventors, researchers, designers, artists, performers, architects, engineers,.......to co-create the future. covering things like nanotech, biotech, health, robotics, education, climate, retrofitting cities to be sustainable, etc... only limited by all our imaginations. If you have something cool to share or just like the idea of co-creating the future join us to create the festival and share the loveat last year's festival we had a young guy who made the coolest electronic musical instruments out of junk and old toys and the crowd loved it. I am sure we now have upcoming electronics whizzes in sydney because of him, i hope tim'll be with us this year too. maybe you have something inspirational too...

The Future Of Nuclear Energy

This is some what true but in the case of research  there is no “bad” waste being emitted from the reactions that undergo in theses reactors. Commercial Nuclear Reactors or CNRs do produce a lot of residue. They produce this residue by using their fuel so much to the point of radioactive waste. Small Research Reactors or SRRs do not do this, instead of using it up they produce new isotopes that can be useful instead of becoming waste.   So why don't we use SRRs? We do not use SRRs because of financial and safety. The safety concern comes in when the reactors are able to undergo Nuclear fission witch releases huge amounts of heat that no current materiel known to men kind is capable of withstanding. The other type of SRR is safe and financially friendly but does not produce electricity instead it uses approximately 1 million volts DC, but produces isotopes from elements such as Hydrogen witch is found in water.   In conclusion nuclear energy has not ended.

Hate is fear, and fear is rot. That cankers root and fruit alike-Robert Graves

An interesting thing happened this morning, I normally get up a couple of hours before my wife, it gives me time to study and think. Well, this morning, about 7:30, I'm comfortable in a chair and a half by the front window, drinking my coffee and studying fluid mechanics for a test Monday when a car stops out front. I don't think much of it, then I hear the car door and I'm thinking "Great, they want to sell me something". But no, much to my incredulity, I hear spew forth a vitriolic stream of profanity and epithets directed at the campaign sign in my front yard. Now I'm not given to either panic or rage, and the door is still locked, so my response is more one of bemusement than anything. But later it occurred to me, regardless of any outcome come November, America is a deeply wounded and divided nation. How very sad.

The future of K'nex guns?

What is the future of K'nex guns? It had literally been almost a year since I had been on this site, and when I came back, I was almost shocked to see that the best guns a year ago are still the best guns today.  There has been almost no improvements or innovations in the past year, and in many cases, the guns have gotten worse.   I really don't want to sound mean but this is a problem.  The only ones that I have seen (and I haven't looked around too thoroughly yet, so correct me if I am wrong) that have created something notably innovative and new are TheDunkis (new ram concept and gun), Zak (swagboss), Knexguy (bullpup bolt action), and Jollex (repeating sling).  And of course there are a few promising new-comers such as Icetank and Ryry.   I just want to encourage you all to at least try to think of something, put it down on paper, let others know, and even try to build it.  And even if there isn't something completely new you can come up with there are still so many things out there that need to be perfected such as pump actions, shotguns, repeating slings, horizontal (tube) mags, etc.  You can even try to combine some for an even more impressive gun. Personally, I think the future of knex guns are in horizontal magazines, as they are very rarely used and there are so many unexplored uses they can be put to.   Hopefully that inspired you to try something new, and if you don't agree with my point of view, prove me wrong!  Show me something that you've made that will amaze us.  I am simply trying to inspire a new year of knex guns.   So, what do you think the future of knex guns is?

computer desk

Anybody interested in an instructable on building this desk that I'm going to build in the near future, it takes 1 and 1/2 sheats of 3/4th inch plywood to build. It's wide enough to hold up to 3  21 inch monitors. It can hold just about any mid tower computer  nicely, and under it i will be putting in a drawer but these aren't the final plans so I don't want to design a drawer just yet, next to the keyboard pullout would probably be a place to store documents, or in my case drawings. and on the right you'd have your multi purpose shelving may end-up making the spaces non permanent. Dunno we'll see how things go, I may not even use these plans.

Awesome site selling space age materials

If you're hurting for novel materials, do I have the site for you! It's got all these super-cool, futuristic-y weird, wacky and awesome materials made possible by science.  Between the talking tape (speaks a message without electronics!), shape memory polylmer, super elastic plastic, temperature sensitive glass (SO pretty!) and the temperature sensitive color changing fabric - I can't decide what I want most! Each product's page gives applications for it, but I'm sure ya'll don't need the suggestions...most of us work in regular plain old metal, wood, leather, plastic, electronics, etc - imagine all the extra routes you could go with some of these things as components. (No, I'm not being paid or something, I'm just excited about all the possibilities...hey, what about a contest with prizes being money to spend on this site??) As Kiteman would say - Go on...

Going to buy one soon but what do I need?

Things that im wondering: 1. Do I use AutoCad or 3d studio max or something else? (At the moment im not 100% on what im making but so far i think ill be building things like Strandbeest or bookmakrs nothing huge but interesting projects. Ultimately I want to find the thing i love making). 2. Robo R1 "ABS+PLA Model" for now seems like the best model for the price (ultimately when im good at it I want to buy a Form 1 "formlabs" for jewelry) 3. Should I grab any 3d model I see and hoard it like a winter squirrel? 4. instructables has always been a great site (Home improvement projects) I just never had a reason to build a profile, are there other sites that would have info on 3d printing? Any help would be great :)

Delorean Time Machine

Hi guys, I would just like to ask for some tips/advice/suggestions on how to build a Delorean Time Machine (as featured in Back To The Future). I'm not talking about an actual scale model - decent ornament size will do, to be displayed on a shelf. It would be cool to include some fancy electronics inside of it. Perhaps a digital alarm clock?

Anti Gravity

SCIENTISTS in Finland are about to reveal details of the world's first anti-gravity device. Measuring about 12in across, the device is said to reduce significantly the weight of anything suspended over it.The claim - which has been rigorously examined by scientists, and is due to appear in a physics journal next month - could spark a technological revolution. By combating gravity, the most ubiquitous force in the universe, everything from transport to power generation could be transformed.The Sunday Telegraph has learned that Nasa, the American space agency, is taking the claims seriously, and is funding research into how the anti-gravity effect could be turned into a means of flight.The researchers at the Tampere University of Technology in Finland, who discovered the effect, say it could form the heart of a new power source, in which it is used to drive fluids past electricity-generating turbines.Other uses seem limited only by the imagination:Lifts in buildings could be replaced by devices built into the ground. People wanting to go up would simply activate the anti-gravity device - making themselves weightless - and with a gentle push ascend to the floor they want.Space-travel would become routine, as all the expense and danger of rocket technology is geared towards combatting the Earth's gravitation pull.By using the devices to raise fluids against gravity, and then conventional gravity to pull them back to earth against electricity-generating turbines, the devices could also revolutionise power generation.According to Dr Eugene Podkletnov, who led the research, the discovery was accidental. It emerged during routine work on so-called "superconductivity", the ability of some materials to lose their electrical resistance at very low temperatures. The team was carrying out tests on a rapidly spinning disc of superconducting ceramic suspended in the magnetic field of three electric coils, all enclosed in a low-temperature vessel called a cryostat."One of my friends came in and he was smoking his pipe," Dr Podkletnov said. "He put some smoke over the cryostat and we saw that the smoke was going to the ceiling all the time. It was amazing - we couldn't explain it."Tests showed a small drop in the weight of objects placed over the device, as if it were shielding the object from the effects of gravity - an effect deemed impossible by most scientists."We thought it might be a mistake," Dr Podkletnov said, "but we have taken every precaution". Yet the bizarre effects persisted. The team found that even the air pressure vertically above the device dropped slightly, with the effect detectable directly above the device on every floor of the laboratory.In recent years, many so-called "anti-gravity" devices have been put forward by both amateur and professional scientists, and all have been scorned by the establishment. What makes this latest claim different is that it has survived intense scrutiny by sceptical, independent experts, and has been accepted for publication by the Journal of Physics-D: Applied Physics, published by Britain's Institute of Physics.Even so, most scientists will not feel comfortable with the idea of anti-gravity until other teams repeat the experiments. Some scientists suspect the anti-gravity effect is a long-sought side-effect of Einstein's general theory of relativity, by which spinning objects can distort gravity. Until now it was thought the effect would be far too small to measure in the laboratory.However, Dr Ning Li, a senior research scientist at the University of Alabama, said that the atoms inside superconductors may magnify the effect enormously. Her research is funded by Nasa's Marshall Space Flight Centre at Huntsville, Alabama, and Whitt Brantley, the chief of Advanced Concepts Office there, said: "We're taking a look at it, because if we don't, we'll never know."The Finnish team is already expanding its programme, to see if it can amplify the anti-gravity effect. In its latest experiments, the team has measured a two per cent drop in the weight of objects suspended over the device - and double that if one device is suspended over another. If the team can increase the effect substantially, the commercial implications are enormous. Okay. lets throw down our ideas and see if we can figure something out... or not

Just a Thought

Hello everyone, I'd like to share a thought that occurred to me. It appears to me that there are really only 3 main qualities of a knex gun: -Range -Fire rate -Ease of use Now out of these three we have already maxed out range with slingshots and the NAR. Now we need to work on maxing out the other two through semi autos and such and we will have truly revolutionary weapons. Then we can start combining multiple elements and creating easy to use semi-auto slingshots and such. I just wanted to share these thoughts with the community.

Master Minds Only (Coffee Mug "Forget me Not"

I am looking to design a coffee mug that reminds the user via a speaker attached to the door in some way, that they are leaving the house without their coffee.  The project will need a sensor at the door that can recognize a sensor built into the mug, I'm thinking Thermos style yet able to fit in a normal sized cup holder, that can be machine washed without damaging the inside components. (The design can have an attachable bottom to hold the hardware and battery source, so the main part is machine washable.)  And an additional sensor is needed on the users car keys to recognize the user is leaving the house. when both the mug sensor and the key sensor pass at the same time  a "have a nice day _______user name_____" voice recording plays when only the key sensor goes past the door receiver a " ____User name____ is forgetting their coffee" voice recording plays  My questions are for what type of sensors will I need to purchase in order to create this project? and how would I set up the code to recognize the combination of sensors vs. the single sensors by passing the door sensor? Thank you for your help Indestructable community

Instructables in the Institute for the Future's Future of Making Map

I helped The Institute for the Future, an independent, nonprofit research group with nearly 40 years of forecasting experience, create their Future of Making Map, which has just been published and mentions Instructables:Two future forces, one mostly social, one mostly technological, are intersecting to transform how goods, services, and experiences--the "stuff" of our world--will be designed, manufactured, and distributed over the next decade. An emerging do-it-yourself culture of "makers" is boldly voiding warranties to tweak, hack, and customize the products they buy. And what they can't purchase, they build from scratch. Meanwhile, flexible manufacturing technologies on the horizon will change fabrication from massive and centralized to lightweight and ad hoc. These trends sit atop a platform of grassroots economics--new market structures developing online that embody a shift from stores and sales to communities and connections.Check out the full Future of Making Map here.
