Notes From Too Much Travel

A good friend of mine wrote up his travel tips here at Notes From Too Much Travel. It has all sorts of tips around rental cars, using cell phones internationally, how much water to drink on a plane flight, and stuff to keep in your travel bag.

Travel Instructable

I'm sure many of you are avid travelers, so why not make instructable travel guides to certain cities or regions of foreign countries, because I know there's lots of information like that online but just a starting point would be greatly appreciated. So this is my formal request. -Thank You very much

New Years 08: How We Could Theoretically "Discover" Time Travel/ers

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. Or of course, no one might turn up at all...

Laptop batteries + Solar panels = Backup travel battery

Here's the thing. I have had this idea for a while now to use some old laptop batteries to make a larger battery cell and some PowerFilm solar chargers to charge them. I have 10 good laptop batteries and 10 PowerFilm AA solar chargers to use. I travel a lot and would like to combine all of these to make a decent travel battery capable of charging an iPhone, iPod, iPad and/or camera batteries as needed.  Seeking some guidance to make this happen. Will be posting an Instructable when I'm fully capable of building this.

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

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

Time Travel Contest (with actual prizes!)

Fancy winning a few goodies?From the New Scientist magazine:Our theme this year is time travel. When the Large Hadron Collider at CERN was about to go into operation, some physicists speculated that it might attract visitors from the future (New Scientist, 9 February, p 32, and Feedback, 5 April ). For our competition, we ask you to imagine three such visitors arriving, each bringing glad tidings and bearing a gift from the future. What would the gifts be?Ten lucky winners will each receive a copy of Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration of the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation and Time Travel by Michio Kaku. They will also receive a selection of New Scientist goodies - including books from the Last Word series and a pen-drive.You may enter the competition online. You can also enter by email - with "Competition" in the subject field, please - or by fax or post.The competition closes on Monday 1 December {a significant date} and no entries will be accepted after that date. The results will be published in the 20/27 December issue of New Scientist. The editor's decision is final. Happy imaginings!

USB to Travel Clock Circuit Help :)

I've got this little black Oregon Scientific travel clock thing with a transparent screen. It was an old gadget of grandma's I found years ago. I was eying it, and I had a damn good idea for an Instructable-worthy project. I'd eventually like to run this off of USB power. Currently it has a little button-battery in it (Energizer 357, bout 1CM in diameter). I know USB out is an unsteady 5V, so I'd need a capacitor to regulate the current, I guess, and the necessary circuitry to adjust the voltage to whatever this little clock runs on. Any advice for such a novice?

How discover time travel... i think

Long story short, my friend found some instructions of how to create a time machine or something. The drawing looked kind of dirty so instead of keeping the drawing, she just took a photo of it. She showed me the photo, which turned out to be real blurry and crappy.I posted the blurry photo up on this site, and someone commented that the original image is on a site called asiko.org It's some weird $h!t. I emailed them but never received any word back as to who is behind this. But anyway I figured to post the instructions here because it does seem feasible. The plan is basically this:1. Choose a date, time and city. These 3 things are called Asiko. Let's use 01/01/09, Time Square NY, New York just for clarification purposes.2. Popularize Asiko till step 53. Meet at Time Square on 01/01/09, and we should see a time traveler from the future4. In the unknown future, a time machine will need to be invented. Still popularize Asiko, 5. When they figure out how to have "safe time travel", a traveler will be sent back to the popularized location and time of Asiko, which is Time Square, 01/01/09.

Pet Travel Kennel Into Doghouse

Hello everyone!  Finally made an account after using this site for over 5yrs because I'm hoping to find some advice. I have a big, plastic, dog-sized travel kennel (airplane kind).  Since my pet isn't using it anymore, thought I'd convert it into an outside doghouse seeing as though it's practically complete already.  To prevent rain from getting inside, I need to cover up the side & back barred "windows".  My 1st impulse was to replace the metal bars with wood, but rain would just leak in through the top.  Any thoughts on attaching a makeshift roof?  I've added a picture of it to help (the metal door has been removed).

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.

Attempting to create a traveling arts, crafts, and music festival.

Hi! My name is Miranda and I'm trying to start up a traveling arts, crafts, and music festival that will tour America for one year. PLEASE CLICK HERE I've worked in the production industry for the past few years and I feel as though there aren't enough festivals that really showcase independent artists/crafters/musicians. I'm using Kickstarter to raise funding in order to make this happen. If you aren't familiar with Kickstarter, it's an all or nothing crowd funding site where you present a project and have people make a pledge. In return for making a pledge, you offer a reward. I'm offering some great hand made rewards and I would love it if everyone could check it out. Thank you so much.

Gasifying truck travels 10,000 miles

From the first time he saw Emmett "Doc" Brown fire up the Mr. Fusion home energy reactor in the "Back to the Future" movies, Dave Nichols has always wanted to make a vehicle run on garbage.Two decades after the trilogy, the 42-year-old home builder and auto shop owner from eastern Connecticut isn't traveling through time in a DeLorean, yet. But he's modified his 1989 Ford F150 pickup truck to run on wood, leaves, cardboard and other "biomass" with a fuel system that he says expels virtually no pollution.The technology is called gasification, and it's been around since the 1800s, when it was used for street lamps and cooking. It even powered some vehicles during World War II, but faded away under oil's dominance.Associated Press ArticleRelevant Instructable

Rotary switch w/ direction based contacts??

I'm looking for a specific type of switch... I believe that it must exist, but I have never seen it... I need a rotary switch, where each clockwise "click" (partial turn) makes one circuit momentarily, and each counter-clockwise turn makes a different momentary conection... example with two light bulbs ( L1 and L2 ) connected to each direction of travel, respectively: If you rotate the knob one "click" (say 15 degrees) clockwise, L1 flashes for a moment, as the knob is in motion. if you continue clockwise, L1 will flash at each "click". If you rotate the knob one "click" counter-clockwise, L2 flashes for a moment. if you continue counter-clockwise, L2 will flash at each "click". There is no center-point, so any clockwise travel corresponds to L1, and any counter-clockwise travel corresponds to L2. does anyone know where I could get a couple of these??

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.

Travel Much? Maybe you need a "FAKE TV" ?

Afraid of burglars entering your house when you are away overnight?   This product looks like just the thing (I sincerely like what I am seeing, I don't sell them, I am not affiliated with them in any way). I bet one could be made with an arduino and an LED array?  Fool Burglars with FakeTV! Most burglars will not risk prison by breaking into an occupied house.  So when a prowler sees that flickering glow that means someone is home watching television, he knows to move on to an easier target. But now you can outsmart him with a FakeTV.  FakeTV simulates... Go HERE for the REST of the story...

Hitchhikers guide to.. The Earth!

So here's the idea. I've been thinking how cool it would be to do a collaboration and create a giant travel guide. But not just an ordinary travel guide, one written by all instructables members.We have enough people on this site that we could get a pretty good start on it. I think the idea would spread fairly quickly. For example, I would write a brief something or other about my state (North Carolina), and then a full length guide for Boone, the university town that I live in. I would include basic information like population, size, etc., and also where I like to eat, what kind of tourist attractions are here, why ASU beat Michigan, etc. Some one else could add to what I wrote, and someone else could add a guide for the Charlotte/Denver area, and so on. For another state/province someone would just add a new step, etc. I realize it wouldn't be an Instructable, in the strict sense, but it would be helpful nonetheless. Not to mention we could have a lot of fun with it.What do you all think? What do the Instructables staff think about something like this? (In light of the fact that this is not a step by step guide to any one thing)Let the discussion begin. =)
