DIY Bike Light

by Edwin

Aidy is the brain behind the DIY Bike Light – working concepts with the potential to be individual pieces of artwork that is guaranteed to capture the attention of anyone who lays their eyes on them. I wouldn’t recommend you placing this beside the TV or coffee table if you happen to hold regular gaming sessions of Wii in your living room, nor will I recommend households with boisterous dogs …

Snow Chopper made from spare parts

by Mark R

I love seeing DIY gadgets like these. Every time I see one, such as the Star Trek phaser, I can’t help but think: “how does one get the time to build these things?” I mean, I can barely keep up with my writing deadlines. Therefore, I will give my full congratulations to Bob Sawicki and Toby Weisser for using their weeknights and Sundays to build the snow chopper that you …

Design a Star Trek Phaser, for real

by Mark R

phaser 12X beam

We reported on a Star Trek Phaser before, but that was a toy. What you see here is the real deal. Well, as real as it can probably be with DIY tech. This modded weapon is powered by a FlexDrive DC/DC, and it uses an off the shelf laser driver. In fact, I believe that it is an ordinary laser from a Blu-ray device. There is a video of this …

Arduino Weather Clock keeps you informed on weather

by Ally

Basically all of the weather machines out there have zero personality.  They have their fancy screens to give you all of your weather alerts and your important weather information.  However, most of them lack personality.  Well this homemade job is packed full of personality.  It may not warn you about severe weather, but it will let you know what to expect before you step outdoors.

Star Wars Millennium Falcon Bed

We’ve reported on many Star Wars products on this blog, and I guess we are obligated to report on this one. No, just kidding. I love reporting on Star Wars stuff, and this one is a Geek’s dream. I mean, look at it, it is a bed shaped like the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. And there is a lady dressed as Princess Leia, for crying out loud. The only …

Sugru turns you into a hack, and that’s a good thing

by Mark R

I can’t help but think that this YouTube video is a very low-budget way of promoting Sugru, but I also can’t help but agree with the spokeswoman’s philosophy. Granted, I question the way she defines the word “hacking”. For some reason, I normally use that word to define when someone does something cool on a computer. That, or destroying an object with a sharp tool, such as an axe. The …

CoolerBot takes pictures of the outdoors, from indoors

by Mark R

This next invention is designed for those who really like nature photography, but hate the outdoors. I suppose that you could just buy a bunch of coffee-table books, or you could use this DIY-er’s CoolerBot. I’m not certain whether CoolerBot is its assigned name, but it uses a 48-quart Coleman cooler as a body with 14 inch wheels in front and then 10 inch wheels behind. The CoolerBot uses two …

Make Your Gloves Touchscreen Friendly With Special Thread

by Ally

We’ve all seen the various sets of gloves that promise to allow us to use our iPhone or iPod Touch while still keeping our hands warm.  The problem is some of them are a little pricey.  Plus if you already have a perfectly good pair of gloves you might not want to replace them with a different pair.  Instead of buying that new pair of gloves there’s an easy solution …
