Armless Teenar plays the blues

by Edwin

It never ceases to amaze me what men (and women, of course – I’m just talking in an extremely general manner, so please don’t get overtly PC on me) can do with a little bit of imagination, some D.I.Y. skills, and a passion to create something totally new that blows our collective minds away. Lou Reimuller obviously had more time on his hands than the rest of us by lovingly …

Fully Working Miniature Brass Steam Engine

Brass Steam Engine

I’ve not seen one of these in ages, a fully working minature steam engine (and I’ve never seen a model engine with so much shiny brass). The classic Locomobile is works like a real steam engine but is 1/8 the size.

Play Pacman against insects

Pacman arcade game

I hope you all remember the arcade game Pacman! It was an arcade game that was a huge hit in the 80’s, so much so that it even took its developers by surprise.  As you might recall, the object of the game was to gobble up as many dots as possible, avoiding the four ghosts (who had names, but I can’t remember them now).

Slam Man

In this day and age with all our mod cons and lazy gadgets, it’s hard to keep fit and healthy as we do less exercise than ever. Obesity in England has greatly increased since the mid 1990’s. Someone, somewhere, realised that something had to be done and thus, the Slam Man was born. I’m sure you recognise him from ITV’s Celebrity Fit club, if not, let me introduce you.
