by Caitlyn - on September 22nd, 2016

When you have a project in mind, there are many steps to take it from idea to concept to project. Coming up with the idea and seeing the finished product are the best parts of the process, but the tedium in between is the only way you’ll get to see both sides of the coin. That being said, the world has been thinking up and creating things long enough now that there are tools to help speed up just about every facet of a DIY project.

When you want to make something but don’t know how, it’s difficult to know where to start. Usually making something out of wood or metal requires very precise measurements and cutting, but it doesn’t always have to be that difficult.

Design Out Loud! Cardboard Speakers is a cool DIY project

by Edwin

cardboard-speakersIt is not everyday that you purchase a pair of speakers in which you need to assemble the various parts yourself, that is for sure! Of course, it is always a whole lot easier purchasing a brand new speaker without having to go through the motions of fixing the various parts together, but where is the fun in that for all of you hands-on folks? The $24.99 Design Out Loud! Cardboard Speakers sounds (pardon the pun) like a whole lot of fun, where this entire kit will come with its fair share of markers and paint to boot.

This set of two small speakers (don’t expect to use the to rock out an entire room, that is for sure!) will help you unleash your creative juices as each design perfectly reflects the music on the mix and the mood it creates. This special kit has been designed for DIY creativity at its best, where you will make use of the markers, paint, and others to create a unique and personal set of mobile speakers. Once you are done, just plug their 3.5mm standard audio jack into your PC or device and you’re good to go.

by Edwin

walabotBeing able to see through walls, or right past a block of concrete is definitely something that many of us would love to have. After all, it would turn us into super sleuths, as we can figure out just where hidden compartments are in a crime scene, and of course, for the boys who have their raging hormones in check, they might use it to satisfy their lust. Not so with the $299 WalabotDIY, however, as it is a device that enables one to gain ‘Superman vision’, or X-ray vision, depending on how you would like to call it.

by Caitlyn

Glowforge

Are you the type of person who wants to surround yourself with works of art, and have reminders of creative endeavors everywhere? If you don’t already know how to make traditional pieces of art, it’s a pretty expensive endeavor and takes a long time to teach yourself (definitely try it though because it’s fun!). What if you could make whatever you wanted out of almost any kind of material or improve the visual quality of things that you already have with little more work than having an idea?

by Caitlyn

Gear Gripz

We live on our phones just as much as we live in the real world. In a flash we can talk to our family whether they’re two doors down or on the other side of the world. Not to mention we can work on our phone, play games, watch movies, keep up with the news, pay bills, and just about everything else you could imagine. Of course, some people don’t like to keep their several hundred dollar phone in a protective case.

The Watch Repair Tool Kit – gotta spend money to save money

by Caitlyn

Watch Repair Tool Kit

When you really like a piece of jewelry, you take care of it so it keeps its shine. The same can be said of a watch, but there is more involved with keeping it in top order beyond buffing it up here and there. All of the internal parts and pieces need to be working exactly as they should, and the battery has to be providing the juice, so it’s your job to make sure the status quo is maintained.

Pine64 appeals to DIY enthusiasts

by Edwin

pine64Kickstarter is definitely a hotbed of innovations, although one cannot deny that there will be some duds from time to time. As to what makes a particular project tick compared to the rest, this cannot be determined in a particularly empirical and scientific manner, but rather, it is more or less a case of the right timing. Having said that, if you have heard of the Raspberry Pi that has seen action in many a DIY project in the past, surely you would be stoked to know that here we are with something that is more powerful – the Pine64 single-board 64-bit supercomputer that has just launched on Kickstarter.
