DIY Star Trek sliding doors

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2010

Here’s something that we’ve all wanted to install in our homes. Now we know how to do it. I’m talking Star Trek doors baby! Instructables has posted a step-by-step guide on installing these sliding doors which are powered by an air compressor.

Of course they are super cool. It requires some work, but the results will have you strolling around your home like it’s a starship. The doors are controlled by a panel switch and have a key which can lock them open or shut.

Richard Branson will be releasing his iPad magazine by the name of “Project” tomorrow or the next day, with a cover featuring Jeff Bridges and a cover story on TRON: Legacy. According to a source from 9 to 5 Mac, it will be available in the iTunes store and active tomorrow in the morning.

Will it be a good magazine? Who knows. It seems to have a wide range of content and is certainly getting a lot of hype. We will find out very soon.

Richard Branson launching Project Magazine for iPad

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on November 25th, 2010

Richard Branson is our favorite rich guy. He wants to put people in space. Enough said. Richard Branson is also funding an iPad-specific magazine, called Project. And what better way than on the iPad?

The magazine will cover content related to entertainment, travel, business, design and international culture. This, along with other recent news makes us wonder if Apple might be implementing subscription billing into the App Store. Seems like it might be coming soon.

Lego Headphones

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2010

I don’t think we’ve ever seen an actual set of Lego headphones before. This Instructables DIYer didn’t just glue a few Lego bricks onto an old pair of headphones either. If you look at the detail, this guy has some awesome skills.

The whole project took about a month and a half to complete. The creator claims that they are sturdy enough to be “tossed around in a bag”. And he can take it apart any time he wants to make repairs that may be needed on the go.

50 awesome papercraft robots

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2010

We’ve seen our share of cool papercraft projects around here. We just wish we had time to put them all together. Over at our robot site Botropolis, we’ve compiled fifty papercraft robots, which should keep you busy for a while.

Robots will be the death of you and I one day, so we may as well build some cool paper toys to play with and display. Many of these are as good as having an actual action figure and they cost much less.

Create a Stained Glass curtain with old film slides

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2010

Finally here’s something that you can do with your old film slides that is actually very cool. It’s hard to stop looking at it. You could even get creative and use the colors of the slides to create stained glass type images.

You don’t need to use any heavy duty tools either. Basically you drill some holes in the slides using a Dremel and connect them all using aluminum chainmail rings. Sounds pretty simple right? And the end result sure is pretty.

Gameboy goes Steampunk

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2010

This just may be the most awesome Gameboy mod ever. The steampunk Game Boy. The ultimate in Victorian handheld gaming. Sure it looks awesome, but the modder also added a pro sound mod which increases the the output and changed the red LED light for an orange one.

It took only a week to complete the project, even though it looks like it took much longer. Awesome job. It looks like it was dug up from an archeological site.

Lego router works, delivers Wi-Fi

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2010

Lego makes all things possible. So it isn’t surprising that someone named Luke has ripped open the WRT54GL and transplanted it into a Lego case. The best part is that it looks great. I wouldn’t mind this sitting in my living room.

Want to try your hand at this Lego creation? Go for it. Full instructions are available. You can likely get it done during a quiet weekend.

Log Radio is what it sounds like

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on October 18th, 2009

Log Radio is what it sounds likeLooking for a radio that both Ewoks and hippies can endorse? Here it is. The Log Radio. A wooden wonder device that looks like the escape pod that R2-D2 and C-3PO took to Tatooine. It’s from designers Solène Le Goff and Christophe Gouache.

The radio is powered by solar or wind-up. It should work for a good long time until Squirrels start living inside or your senile dad chops it in half for the fireplace.

Owl Earbud holder

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2009

Owl Earbud holderThis owl earbud holder gives a hoot and he won’t pollute your desktop. In fact, he will help keep your desk tidy by holding your earbuds all neat like. It’s a DIY project that’s simple to do. Just take a piece of wood, cut several holes in it, and make it look like an owl. Then wrap your portable MP3 earbuds around it. It’s cute.

Much cuter than my solution which is wires all over my desk in a huge mass that is more puzzle than usable gadget cords. To each their own.

GM and Segway working on two-wheeler P.U.M.A. project

Posted in Personal Transport by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2009

GM and Segway working on two-wheeler P.U.M.A. projectGeneral Motors and Segway have joined forces to create something larger than a Segway and smaller than a car. The end result will be the Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility Project (PUMA) whose goal is to deliver a self-balancing, two-wheeled vehicle that shuttles two people around at speeds up to 35 mph.

If you’re keeping score, that’s three times faster than Segway’s 12 mph top speed. It woill have a 35 mile range as well. The vehicle will be powered by a lithium battery and feature a built-in communications device that can “talk” to similar vehicles nearby.

SuperHeadz Plamodel DIY 35mm camera

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on March 12th, 2009

SuperHeadz Plamodel DIY 35mm cameraBuilding your own camera is one of the coolest DIY projects you can do. Sadly cameras are such complex beasts that if you are building anything other than a pinhole camera, it’s pretty impossible. Or is it?

SuperHeadz is offering an alternative in the form of a model camera that you can build from parts and then customize yourself. It’s like those old snap together model kits you had as a kid. But instead of a Ford or a Chevy, you’re building a plastic camera. Pretty neat.

Phone Booth Aquarium is how Aquaman changes costume

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2009

Phone Booth Aquarium is how Aquaman changes costumeWhat a confusing world this has become for the modern day Superman. It used to be he could change into his Superhero outfit in any old phone booth. But in many areas phone booths are to be found less and less. That explains why you never see Superman right? So, along comes this here Phone Booth Aquarium, adding insult to injury, as Aquaman now has a place where he can make a quick change.

Okay, it’s not Aquaman’s. It’s from artists Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino, who decided to do something special for the Lyon Light Festival in France. That’s right, they turned an unused phone booth into an aquarium. It makes for an interesting tourist attraction.

iPods turned into iPod speakers

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 1st, 2009

iPods turned into iPod speakersCheck out this pair of iPods that have been turned into iPod speakers. The original iPod scroll wheels were removed and replaced with a pair of speakers. This particular DIY project is a bit expensive at around $100 (he needed to replace both the front and back panels since the old ones had too many scratches to count), although I don’t see why a smart shopper couldn’t do it for a bit less.

IPod speakers for an iPod. Makes sense. Let’s not go crazy though. We don’t need to see Zune speakers for Zunes and iPhone speakers for your iPhone. I’m just kidding. We love any and all clever mods, even when they get a bit redundant.

The Apple “iThink” concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2008

The Apple “iThink” conceptConsider this a concept that that might have been and may still be, should Steve Jobs get a bit too enamored with The Matrix. It could be the next hot Apple item, leaving the iPod and iPhone in the dust. Designer Paul Micarelli came up with it.

The Symbiosis™ Neural Interface:Direct brain-computer link means your mind and computer are one. It sports Intel Fusion™, Quantum Processing that uses the power of the atom to instantly compute at the speed of thought., Holographic Data Storage thanks to the iThink’s tiny internal holochip with an amazing individual capacity of over 666 Yottabytes for seemingly infinite augmented memory, Intra-neural Communication lets you mentally allow or block any kind of signal you want. With the iThink, it wont be long until you are docking yourself like some Borg in the hive collective, rather then docking your iPod.
