Randomizer

How about a random button like wikipedia has? I think it would be fun to stumble around Instructables with a random button. If you guys already have this feature its hard to find.

'Random' button

A random button would be awesome at the top of the page by the categories.  Press it and a random ible pops up  I think alot of people would use it, I know I would.

The effects of randomness

I was looking for a picture of SF Cody, followed a couple of random links and discovered that I share my birthday with the man that invented 3D glasses and the shiny hologram on credit cards.Anyhoo...I wonder, has anybody else noticed higher traffic on their old Instructables? My guess is that the random search function is doing its job.

Random Question

 Can you guys take a quick look at the instructions for my Intervention, M4, and F2000 and tell me which you like best?  They each have a different background, and I want to know which you guys prefer.  The Intervention is on hardwood, the M4 is on carpet, and the F2000 is on a rug.   Thanks

Hey everybody! Have you tried the random button already? I suggest you do and replie here with which ible came first in line after clicking on RANDOM. I'll put the first 11 together in a guide. Who's in?

Random Button

Instructables is in desperate need of a "Random Ible" button. I find that about 90% of the time that I've been browsing lately, I can never find something that is just intriguing. It would be useful to be able to click a button and be randomly sent to an Instructable on the database so I could find the interesting kinds of things that are hidden 10 pages in or more. It would be even better if there could be a classification with them that allows it to work like StumbleUpon, finding those projects that interest you based off of your taste. Am I the only one who wants such a button?

NO MORE RANDOM!?!?!

It is just me or does it look like the random sort option has been removed with the website update?   Is anyone else completely bummed out by this?  How will I randomly find new things to try?!?!?! Please bring it back instructables!

Random instructable

Hello! I have an idea so  decided to share it with you. Would it be possible to make som kind of randomazier for different instructables? For example: I want to cook something, but I don't know what so I surf in on Instructables and can't decide what I want. So I just press the randomizer and the site finds something for me. Something like StumbleUpon. Of course you should be able to use categories, keywords etc. so you don't get the Portal Gun instructable when you want a bread recipe. Time to brainstorm!

batch randomization

Ok so im trying to make a text based game in batch, my concept was a batch store game where every time a customer walks in for example they ask for something its not the same thing every time you restart the batch file and if there is a way to put a section on the batch file where you could list a few scenarios and batch would randomize it to be one of those scenarios you had.

Games and Random

Last night we added a new "Games" category, and brought back (and made better!) the random sorting.When we first added categories, the theory was to add new categories as they emerged. I'd say that games has pretty clearly emerged. There are great Instructables focused on video games, video game cabinets, homemade game consules, board games, card games, magic tricks, dice games, how to cheat at games, and lots of other ways to have fun. Explore the games category, and have fun. If you come across an Instructable that should be included in games, but we missed adding to the category, leave a note here.A great way to see if there are any we missed adding to games, or just to explore the site in general, is the revived sort by random. It's new every time you click it in the Explore pull-down menu, or click "Spin the Bottle" on the explore pages. I bet you'll find something cool you've never seen before. As always, let us know what you think.

random motion gearbox

I have been exploring wast of creating a random motion from a gearbox, i need this for a segment of a kinetic work i have been doing for some time now. random motion seems somewhat difficult to achieve so i came to the conclusion of using magnets! the gearbox i am working on at the moment works by orbiting one magnet around the other, the central magnet spins the output shaft while the orbiting magnet performs many rotations around the central magnet tugging it to different positions giving an almost random movement (patterns can be found). i was wondering if there were other maybe more effective methods of achieving random patterns of movement without the use of electronics.

Random number generator

I am looking to purchase or looking to make or looking for someone to make or show me how to make a simplistic ramdom number generator with a simple 2 digit lcd readout. This will be used as an automatic dice roller for a board game. The random numbers can be fixed to read out from 1 - 12 or even up to 24. Or, if not too difficult, programble, to make it more versatile Perhaps a prototype could be made by using some existing components such as from a digital clock or watch. Can anyone tell me if; 1. There is anything like this on the market? 2. There is an easy, inexpensive way to built something like this? Or 3. If someone would be interested in building something like this for me?

random led scrambler

I recently was asked a challenging question concerning a type of circuit design. My electronics knowledge is somewhat limited and was wondering if i could get some help on this project. The project is: How do you get one led to light up amongst a row of say ten or more leds by selecting from one switch from a row with the same number of switches. The system should be set up so every switch will have a randomly selected led circuit. In other words the leds are randomly scrambled for the switches. This is basically a type of led guessing game but also involves guessing witch switch will operate which led. Thanks!

The Random Paragraph Word Game

We will see how this works out, I do this with my friends and it gets funny. Instructions: I will start with one word. If we were doing this in person it would be on a piece of paper. That paper is passed to the person next to him. That person writes a word, any word, and passes the paper on. This is repeated, and will form into: A. a funny paragraph B a totally random paragraph that makes no sense C a paragraph that tells an epic story that is the next "Hamlet" and makes perfect sense (That's no fun though) You can choose to end a sentence and start a totally new one anywhere Keep it appropriate. Example Cheese coated birds dance on top of my (*gasp*will it be appropriate?) head. Your pet cookie ate my cat. Here is the word: Why Oh, I forgot to say, add everything prier to your word into your comment (to avoid confusion and if you do that you can avoid a ton of replies to you that you will regret by just hitting post comment and not reply).
