I have a metal outdoor gazebo and am tired of the flimsy hanging screens supplied for it. How do I install permanent screening around it? Can I attach screening to the metal frame? How? I will continue to use the removeable canvas top. Installing doors is not an issue as I will leave "floating" mesh panels at each end for that.
Artist FilthyLuker has been making some fantastic installations. These tentacles are over the top and bring to mind some octopus invasion. Meanwhile, the other pics show that just adding a couple of eyes can make any object much more fascinating. FilthyLuker's galleryvia Wooster Collective

I have a few questions regarding a scultpure I am making- To keep it simple, let's say the sculpture is simply a rectangle, ~4'x8'. What I would like to do is set up eight motion sensors (one in each corner and one in the middle of each side) that when triggered activate a corresponding tape player with a tape loop inside to play on a central speaker unit. So the goal is simplest terms is for people to walk around the installation triggering a musical note and with enough people organize a composition or a chord. Each motion sensor would have its own respective tape player, but I don't have the funds to supply eight seperate speakers. I also don't have much money to spend on PIRs, however, ebay has a bunch of PIR home security sensors for around $5. This project is most likely going to be crude, so I'm not overly worried about how sloppy it may turn out. What I imagine is to have the tape players always on, always running their loops, and a way for their respective sensors to allow the sound to play through the speaker. The gaps I need filled- 1) Is it sensible to use the PIR sensors I'm finding on ebay? (Aleph XP-40, Ademco 998) 2)short of buying eight speakers, is there a way to hook up all eight tape players to a central speaker unit? 3) If I am making this overly complicated, might you know of a better way to accomplish the task?

I have an OEM DVD RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment) console. It is for a 2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx LTZ. The console I have in my car is without the DVD component. I see 4 holes to bolt it into the center. As I will have to remove the one in my car and replace it with the new GM part, will I have to take the seats out? Anything special I should do first?
Hello, I want to set up surveillance camera system in my house. The house is already prewired with 2 cables (1 CAT5 & 1 Coax RG6) at each end (1 end at camera place and the other end at main box). I also have a Power Suply box with out put of 12.3V DC and 5Amps. I want to use Coax RG6 for Video transmission and CAT5 for Power transmission. The distance to run cable from a surveillance camera to a main box is about 40feet - 50feet long. I'm trying to use a CAT5 cable for 12V DC to run for my surveillance camera (12V DC 500mA), I use 2 pairs for positive (4 wires) & other 2 pairs (4 wires) for negative. I wonder if I do this way, will it have any hazard at all? Please advise! Any advice/help is appreciate! Best regards, DP

I've been looking at these awesome bubble columns that are so wretchedly expensive and dying to get one for my office. Note, I am sure they are worth every penny, but I have few pennies. For the link-phobic, a bubble column is a clear tube several feet tall with an aerator making bubbles and multi-coloured lights from beneath the column. Some columns are interactive and others have plastic fishies or balls that sail around inside. There is also a space-saving "bubble wall" that only runs 1L of water. Anyone even have a clue as to where to start? No pics, sorry, I didn't want to pull them off the website.

Looking for people who are interested in helping out on the electrical engineering side and/or set design of a installation game. Various people in the industry (theme parks and video games) should stop by during the exhibition and credit will be provided. On the electrical side it would be helping out with networking of Arduino boards to run each "gag" and be linked into a show control. On the set design side - help with the set design of the piece, lighting, and construction. The installation will take 3 players and have them "break into" a vault with various high tech security (lasers, pressure sensors, computers needing to be hacked, etc). Other examples of this type of work would be "The Tomb" and "Operation Spy" by 5wits, La Fuga by Negone (in Spain), interactive haunted houses, and theme park attractions. Message me if you have any questions. Thanks!

Hey everyone.... The Savvy Tech... (Mike) here, I am a professional assembly technician and have been for about 30 years. Don't know what I am talking about... you have seen the stuff on displayed at the store that looks great but when the asking about taking one home, people find out it comes in a box and requires assembly. Sometimes the assembly is easy... many times, not! If you like building things we should talk. I am the founder of the United Assemblers Network and recruiter for UX Assembly. Check out this recruiting video on the UAN website. Thanks, MikeM

I need guidance on how to install a new electrical outlet to an existing wall. My bathroom only has one electrical outlet, and it's located on the vanity light over the sinks (see photo close-up of light outlet on outdated fixture with rad vintage pastel ikat wallpaper). More info: Usually this should be pretty easy, since there should be an outlet on the other side of the wall that you can just tap in to; but there's no outlets on the other side of any of these walls (see wall descriptions below). There are electrical wires running through these walls though, powering lighting and heating. So, can I just cut a hole in the wall, reach my hand in, grab a random wire, cut it, splice in wiring to a new outlet, and magically everything works? Probably not that simple. I can grasp the basics involved in this, but I'm not 100% certain on how to proceed with my situation since I don't think I need to deal with feeding up new separating wiring from the basement but I also just can't easily tap into an adjacent existing outlet. Floor plan: There's 2 switches at the bathroom entrance: one for the lights, one for the bathroom fan. The light switch controls 2 light fixtures: the one overhead light (it's a light/fan combo) as well as the lighting above the sink. See scan image for rough sketch of current electrical floor plan. Wall descriptions based on sketch: Left wall: interior wall; on other side of the wall is an electric baseboard heater; door to hallway Bottom wall: exterior wall; window Right wall: interior wall; adjacent room is unfinished "attic" area above garage with sloped ceiling* Top wall: interior wall; adjacent stairwell; wall-mounted light fixture with outlet; small under-cabinet baseboard heating vent thing I would like to know if/how I can tap into the electricity of that sink light fixture to be able to relocate the electrical outlet lower, closer to the sink counter, and possibly off to the side (so, not central to the counter as it currently is). See scan image for rough sketch of proposed electrical floor plan (ignore birds, I was using scrap paper). I realize if I were to relocate it off to the side, I'd need to drill through studs and make more more holes in the wall, but that's fine, as I was thinking of creating storage space between the studs anyway. I'm planning on replacing the current sink light fixture with either a) another wall fixture in the same location, b) 2 separate wall fixtures, one above each sink, or c) 3 separate wall sconces, a leftmost one, a center, and a rightmost one. I haven't decided on what will look and function the best. I'm sure there was a much more succinct way of asking this question and describing my situation, but I am clueless about electricity and wiring and whatnot. Despite my inexperience and ignorance I still feel like this is a task I'm capable of, but I'd like to seek the guidance of you wonderful Instructables' folks on how to do this. I'd like to know where you think the outlet(s) should go based on the information I provided, and then how I get the power to that outlet without electrocuting myself and frying the house. * I first was going to say that this attic ceiling outlet is the nearest thing to an adjacent outlet, but I just remembered there's an outlet at the top of the stairs, adjacent to the attic (meaning, not on the other side of a bathroom wall). The attic ceiling outlet is controlled by a light switch inside attic entrance anyway, and this is an insulated roof wall too.

Hi,my names Dan and I am a Designer (and current MA Product design student) interested in submitting an entry to this:http://www.onedotzero.com/submissions.php (deadline for the show in september is May 29th)During my MA came up with a concept and design for an interactive installation that I would like to enter into the above event which will be installed at the BFI southbank in London.Basically, the project will involve the use of Electronics (sensors, microcontrollers, maybe some programming) to trigger light and audio, for an experiential installation.I need someone who can help me construct the kit list,and help with the 'how to' part of this project, thus enabling us to submit a Budget. If chosen we would then go on to install the project on-site.A UK/London based collaborator would be preferred for ease of commuting/meeting if this were to happen and our project selected.Someone from the site who knows their away touch sensors/controllers, LED and other electronics wiring, with perhaps a smideling of programming , who likes getting involved in creative and design based projects should contact me in the first instance to find out more:Role is not paid, but opportunities would abound!Heres hoping!danskimanuk(at)yahoo.co.uk

Global Consciousness Project â€“ Long Term ExperimentI've been watching the GCP for over 4 years. I would like to create a permanent visual installation based on acquired data from the EGG database. The installation will be a tetrahedron, displaying past, present, and the "so-called" probable data. No explanation of what the display portrays. Mysterious as it will be, time and historical data will stir subconscious minds to recognize patterns. I believe this is the perfect device that will develop questions within closed minds and thus in time, answers.Read up on GCP here: Princeton GCPI have a physical design in mind for the installation. I would like to lead the creative task force for creating such a device. I'm wondering if I can find people here that would be interested in helping with the internal electrical and mechanical engineering that will be needed to operate the device. Serious minds needed only. This is a long-term project possibly taking several months to a year to complete. Funding will be provided once the preliminary concept is thoroughly defined. I would like to see that these devices are scattered across the globe and placed in highly visible areas.The domain name ThreeSidedTruth.com has been registered for this project. I hope to find some interested email@example.com~ Demannu

Programmer for an art project? I can give you an excellent opportunity to learn some things about insect detectors, and to challenge your creativity! I need a some help from a programmer/ technical person for my art project (immediately)- Short about the project: The Project is planned for the end exam exhibition at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, June/ July 2008, but might also be shown at later occasions. The work is an installation with video projections, machines and live insects. A box is located on the top of a pedestal. The box contains crane flies, which will be seen through a small window. The crane fly's movements are intercepted by sensors which translates the movements to commands for a machine. The walls in the room are covered by video projections. By means of wires, the machine can move around in the whole room. Technically what I need is: Through an actometer (insect movement detector) the electric impulses created by the movement of the insects, can be viewed in a software on a computer. What i need to do is to use the graph of movements in the software to send output commands to a machine (made by me, controlled by Remote controlls). I am not sure of how this can be done in the best way possible, but I have some suggestions which I can explain more precisely later on. I am looking for someone who have knowledge in terms of programming, and could be able to come up with a good solution, as well as maybe collaborating/ helping me out with my project. Please let me know if you are interested, know someone or know where I should go to meet the right people here in amsterdam. All answers are appreciated! Thank you in advance Andrea

The Barbican's Curve Gallery has an exhibit that makes me smile, even though I haven't seen it in the flesh. Or feathers; You walk in to a narrow, high-ceilinged white room filled with exotic Zebra Finches. They have lovely little cherry-red beaks and speckled feathers in all sorts of designs. Instead of bird tables, the room is furnished with electric guitars, basses and cymbals. Which the birds play. Yes, that’s right. They bounce around from one instrument to the next, in search of seed or fun. Birds playing a rock gig. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. The zebra finch giving Slash a run for his money Photo: PA Everyone in there is smiling like they’ve just smoked a bucket of marijuana. You can’t not. Standing inches away from these birds playing Les Paul guitars by Gibson is so completely surreal – well, I’m going back this weekend. Anybody fancy recreating it in their own aviary?

I'm looking to install a cigarette lighter in a truck for constant power source for a covert gps. I don't want it to be visible, therefore i don't want it to be connected directly to the car battery or anywhere it can be seen under the hood. Is there a way to connect it maybe to a brake light without interfereing with it's operation, of course. Or any other way is fine. Incase anyone is wondering, it is my car, but other people drive it besides myself. Thanks.

I am entrusted with creating/producing an art project that includes every child at a K-12 school --600 kids. One idea I had was each child getting a disk and putting her initials on it and then putting them together to make an image and maybe using sensors to have the discs move with motion. If you have any ideas of a simple way to execute this idea OR any other suggestions, I would be extremely grateful. I want it to be special. as it will be permanent.
