Electroluminescent Mountain Bike

by Ally

Every now and then I’ll spot someone riding a bike in the middle of the night and most of the time it’s almost impossible to see them.  Part of the problem in my area of the world is that it’s usually on a very dark back road and the reflector is so small it’s easily mistaken as nothing more than a mailbox with a reflector on it.  If you want …

DIY Water Powered Calculator

by Ally

Instead of purchasing an eco-friendly water powered calculator and tossing out your old one, only for it to slowly rot in a landfill, you could make your own.  It seems to be a whole lot more eco-friendly to convert your current items into something eco-friendly rather than replacing the gadgets you already own.  Thanks to a tutorial, you could easily make your own earth friendly calculator.

Gameboy iPhone 4 case

by Edwin

What you see here is a definite labor of love. This enterprising person decided that the iPhone 4, being all modern could very well be married to something retro, to the tune of the ancient Nintendo Gameboy. Touted to be the Original Gameboy iPhone 4 case, it might very well be the first of its kind in the world. The actual Gameboy was cut open at the top so that …

Book Lamp lights up unused books

by Ally

When you picture a book light, somehow I doubt that you would picture a book that’s been gutted and had a light installed inside.  If you don’t mind sacrificing a book you could make your very own book lamp.  You can even choose one that has the title to put a funny spin on things.  Like the one chosen by the original creator, “The Illuminatusi Trilogy”.

Teenager builds a flamethrower, are parents thrilled?

by Mark R

I have reported on DIY gadgets, and I have celebrated the DIY spirit. I’m sort of on the fence in celebrating this one. Perhaps I need to put away my prejudices about teens who make flamethrowers. The sad part is that this teen, who goes by the name of “ShockSlayer” has probably done more than I did in my teens by creating a flame thrower on the wrist. I guess …

Batman Tumbler Golf Cart

by Ally

Golf carts are fun, but they just look so puny.  Instead of riding around in some incredibly slow and fragile looking golf cart, you need this Batman inspired golf cart.  Sure, it’s not going to be able to do nearly as many tricks as the tumbler in the Batman movies, but at least you’ll get to look cool while cruising around at the high speed of 15 miles an hour.

Dreamcast controller soap

by Edwin

The Sega Dreamcast was the best console ever to experience an early demise, and for many strange reasons at that even though it has many technologically advanced features among the crop of other consoles at that time. Well, with the craze of turning stuff into a soap form factor going around these days, why are we not surprised to see a Dreamcast controller that comes in the form of a …

Nine-year old sends camera into space

by Mark R

Some of you might remember when we reported the two MIT students who managed to take pictures of the curvature of the Earth with about 150 dollars worth of materials. It would appear that they aren’t the only ones, and their efforts have been imitated by a nine-year-old. Yes, this boy, Isaac Kubas, managed to build the apparatus that took the cool picture which you see to the right. I’m …
