Steampunk Taxidermy - time-travelling rodents.

Chuffy and his Time Machine, Chuffy (mouse) sits in the little carriage on top of the Time Machine (guinea pig). He is having some mechanical problems getting it started, so the hatch on the side of the Guinea pig is open to reveal vintage clockwork cogs that make the Time Machine work, when it hasn't broken down anyway! Apparently, the donor animals are all natural deaths, including gifts from the maker's cat.

Traveling horizontal lines on a projector display?

I hooked up this projector at work (it's a BenQ) and when I view the projected image (in this case a computer screen) I see horizontal lines traveling up the picture. This projector is the only thing on the circuit right now.  I had to branch off the existing electrical line to add a new plug on the ceiling.  When I plug the projector into the existing outlets I get no lines, when I plug it into the outlet I installed I get lines.  The existing outlets on the circuit are all isolated grounds.  I have tried wiring in a regular outlet and then switched it to an isolated ground when the lines appeared, thinking it could be a ground issue.  I know my wiring is correct as I've installed these projectors before. What could it be?

Hassle Free Airline Travel with DIY Electronics

Steve Hoefer, or Grathio on Instructables, recently published a very interesting article on his website regarding the perils of airport security faced by educators, hackers and entrepreneurs travelling with prototype or DIY electronics and the interest shown by airport security in light of concern over safety of late. Steve writes about how to the untrained eye, your mess of breadboards, PCBs and wires can look highly intimidating, regardless of how harmless YOU know it is. He goes on to give advice on how best to travel with your custom electronics and how to avoid winding up or upsetting airport security by being clear, honest and helpful. If like me you've ever had this concern while flying, it's well worth heading over to his website to have a look, it's an interesting and educational read! James

Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day - Dec. 8

This sounds like loads of fun: Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day!Scheduled for December 8, 2007. Just spend the entire day in costume and character, but don't actually explain what you're doing- context, costuming, and behavior are key! Never admit you're a time traveler, and make really, really bad attempts at keeping a low profile.Three options:1) Utopian/cliche future- "If the Future did a documentary of the last fifty years, this is how badly the reenactors would dress." Think Star Trek: TNG or the Time Travelers from Hob. Ever see how the society in Futurama sees the 20th century? Run with it. Your job is to dress with moderately anachronistic clothing and speak in slang from varying decades. Here are some good starters:- Greet people by referring to things that don't yet exist or haven't existed for a long time. Example: "Have you penetrated the atmosphere lately?" "What spectrum will today's broadcast be in?" and "Your king must be a kindly soul!"- Show extreme ignorance in operating regular technology. Pay phones should be a complete mystery (try placing the receiver in odd places). Chuckle knowingly at cell phones. 2) Dystopian Future:- This one offers a little more flexibility. It can be any kind of future from Terminator to Freejack. The important thing to remember is dress like a crazy person with armor. Black spray painted football pads, high tech visors, torn up trenchcoats and maybe even some dirt here or there. Remember, dystopian future travelers are very startled that they've gone back in time. Some starters:- If you go the "prisoner who's escaped the future" try shaving your head and putting a barcode on the back of your neck. Then stagger around and stare at the sky, as if you've never seen it before.- Walk up to random people and say "WHAT YEAR IS THIS?" and when they tell you, get quiet and then say "Then there's still time!" and run off.- Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell "NOOOOOOOOO"- Stare at newspaper headlines and look astonished.- Take some trinket with you (it can be anything really), hand it to some stranger, along with a phone number and say "In thirty years dial this number. You'll know what to do after that." Then slip away. 3) The Past:- This one is more for beginners. Basically dress in period clothing (preferably Victorian era) and stagger around amazed at everything. Since the culture's set in place already, you have more of a template to work off of. Some pointers:- Airplanes are terrifying. Also, carry on conversations with televisions for a while.- Discover and become obsessed with one trivial aspect of technology, like automatic grocery doors. Stay there for hours playing with it.- Be generally terrified of people who are dressed immodestly compared to your era. Tattoos and shorts on women are especially scary.

Seeking ideas/thoughts for fountain pen traveling inkwell

I own a certain fountain pen that fills in a special way and is best filled by using the traveling inkwell of the maker of that fountain pen-- by using that traveling inkwell, one can fill the pen with a maximum amount of ink-- filling by dipping the nib end into a bottle of ink doesn't let the max amount of ink to enter the pen. But that traveling inkwell produced by the pen maker is VERY EXPENSIVE. A guy apparently in Australia made his own and I'd like to make one. I have ideas but seek from you more thinking and ideas on this homemade traveling inkwell. [You can see the Australian's clever, simple traveling inkwell here: https://imgur.com/a/fkzTs ] I thought I'd use a straight-sided plastic pill bottle for the vessel that holds the ink and is the main part of the traveling inkwell. The bottle I'd probably use is ~ 28mm ID. I don't know what to use and don't know where to find the rubbery "plug" into which the section of the fountain pen is pushed before inverting the plastic bottle to fill the pen. [The section of a fountain pen is the part that one holds when writing with the pen. It's also called the grip and is the area immediately behind the nib and feed.] All I have so far: - 8.5 cm tall x ~ 28 mm ID straight-sided plastic pill bottle which has near-the-top internal threads for the cap that can also be screwed onto external threads. [I'd use the internal threads for the cap.] Requirements which have come to mind-- tell me if these are sound or should be re-considered: - Whatever rubbery one-hole plug is used, it has to yield a bit to the fountain pen section (which is 11 mm OD) when the section is pushed into the one-hole plug-- the plug hole I suppose should be ~ 9.5 mm to 10 mm. The rubbery material around the hole has to grip the section so ink leakage doesn't happen during filling. - The one-hole plug should not move downward into the ink when the fountain pen section is pushed into the one-hole plug. Maybe the plug would have to be glued in place so it doesn't move? What glue or bonding substance if that's best? - The one-hole plug would be set/glued/bonded immediately below the near-the-top internal threads of the pill bottle. - I suppose the height of the one-hole plug would be ~ 1 cm to 2 cm. - I suppose a straight-side plug vs. a tapered one would be the ideal (but a straight-sided one would, I suppose, have to be glued/bonded in place so it doesn't slip or move). - Ink leakage shouldn't occur when the section is pushed into the one-hole plug and the bottle then inverted for filling. If leakage occurs, then ink runs down my hand and arm during filling. - What kind of not-hard-but-yielding-a-bit "plug" or maybe a stopper is best and where do I find just one? [Fountain pen inks are mainly water with dyes and maybe some additives in them.] Thanks for your attention to this posting!

time travel? Answered

Well i have a theory, but don't know if it's right. according to timedilation, time will go slower for you if you get closer to light speed. if you want to completely travel around the earth with light speed, it would only take 40.074000 : 299.792.458 seconds, which is 0,13367247550970745234691661255868 seconds. so you would experience it as 1.3 seconds. but because time for you goes very, very, very slow at that moment, the 1.3 seconds could be more then a million years! so, here it comes: if you travel so fast that 'your' time goes very slow, then the actual time would be more then if you traveled at normal speed. is that right, or am i completely wrong?

Well that forum on time travel got me thinking...How We Could "Discover" Time TravelWrite down, carve on stone, burn into our memory, tatoo on my back, or something, that if/when time travel comes into exsistence, someone needs to travel back in time to a specific time and date in our near future (Instructables Control Tower, New Years 2008 would be a good time/place). If everyone were to record this, eventually someone/s might do so, meaning that a time traveler might turn up at Instructables HQ on New Year's. I personally intend to attempt to do so, or at least get my future kids to:)Anyways, if a good number of people do exactly this, there might be quite a congregation at Instructables on New Year's.

How to make a RFID bracelet for a travel card (Oyster card)?

Im trying to make a bracelet which incorporates my London Oyster Card (RFID travel card) so i can just swipe my wrist and not faff about with wallets or pockets etc but I am having a few issues. The basic design is going to be simple and effective. I will have a length of regular guage wire around the wrist, secured by a single wire connector/ terminal block (see photo). It will prob be a earth wire, as it is a fancy colour. The RFID will be placed inside the plastic connector and hot glued end end to secure it and keep out the elements. The RFID's aeriel wire will be inside the earth wire heatshrink, it will be a loop of wire and can be as thick as it needs to be. I keep having problems though, I cant get the chip out of the card in one piece. I have been using nail varnish remover but with mixed results.   When/if I do get the RFID chip out of the card, i will need to solder a new aerial and I am unsure about the process. Does the length/gauge of wire matter for the function of the RFID? im thinking about its frequency. Will it need to be ceramic covered wire to avoid shorts? Has anyone put a contactless travel card into other things? Or has any experience dealing with this sort of area? I would very much appreciate any help or advice.

Looking for ideas to create a small, travel worthy acoustic bass

I play bass, and only have an electric instrument so far.  We go car camping for several weeks during the summer, and I would love to be able to join others playing acoustic instruments.  Space is an issue, however, and there really is not room for a full size acoustic bass.  I have looked into "mini bass guitars" but these are pricey, and still fairly large.  I have thought about bringing my electric instrument along with a small, battery powered amp, since there is no electric hook up.  But, that is a last choice, given the setting.  I see from other discussion that converting a guitar is not ideal due to stress on neck from heavier bass strings.  I would even consider a barritone ukulele, and tuning with bass tuning.  Any suggestions?

I think I figured out time travel!!!.....sort of :(

I think I stumbled upon the secret to time travel thanks to the thoughts provoked by a previous topic. The secret to it is storage!! as of now time travel to go backwards is to try and get to a place that no longer exists. its like trying to watch last sundays football game but you didn't hit recored on the VCR. As I see it if we want to ever suceed at time travel we need a way to recored and regenerate/exactly simulate life. right now time travel is only possible in minute viewings on recorded video. in order to fully exsperience and interact with life as it was we would need to invent a way to recored the planet and store it for future simulations, ala star trek halodeck. we need to come up with a way to capture life or at least a 3D true to life recording of it. This seems a daunting task but if it were ever achievable we would the be able to experience previous times. if maybe or AI abilities improved we could then apply this to future time travel.... come up with a way to extract information from the recordings we have to generate a logically sound hypothetical projection of future existence. ya, ya.... I know I'm retarded..... but it makes sence to me :p
