I’m all for making your gadgets look better, but I draw the line at making something heavier. The previous iPhone 4 mod with the metal back looked good but I would have gone with carbon fiber to make the phone lighter, not heavier.
Have you ever taken a picture without using your hands? No, I’m not talking about setting the timer and having the shutter go off after a predetermined amount of time – you still use your hands for that.
While I can’t remember the last time I saw a TV test pattern, I can say that this is a swanky-looking TV cover. It was handmade by Jason Loper, and has a retro style will definitely not look out of place in any modern dwelling.
Sometimes a picture really isn’t worth a 1000 words. You will see what I mean after perusing the photos of this sweet hack below. A geek took some disposable lighters, took the things apart, and used the pieces to make tiny motorcycles.
Yes we know; gaming PCs can get very hot. There was a time when I had one inside my bedroom and I usually had to turn down the heat when I was playing. Sure, nowadays, you can get liquid-cooled PCs, but an enterprising modder decided to use the cool winter air to get his PC down to manageable temperatures.
…or false alarms for that matter. That’s because Matt Richardson’s project only involves a sensor that detects when his mailbox is opened, whether or not important mail or any mail is put inside. But it’s still a neat hack, and will be quite useful if you frequently forget to check for snail mail.
My dad gave my son all six of the Star Wars flicks for Christmas, so over the last week we have watched them all. These aren’t the ones from when I was a kid, but the new “enhanced versions” and one of the things that sticks in my mind from Return of the Jedi is Vader telling Luke his training was complete now that he built his own lightsaber.
Yes, I didn’t like TRON: Legacy all that much. However I did like the original 1982 TRON. My disdain for Legacy didn’t stop me from like this DIY hack, though. This dude made his own kinda sorta TRON suit.
This cool clock is the DOTKLOK and it’s an open source digital clock that can display the time with many different animations. The best part is that it’s totally hackable, not that I’d have the time to do this, but it’s nice to have that option.
Or maybe not, but if you’re not confident with soldering and handling electroluminescent (EL) wire, I think you should follow my guide instead: Step 1, get some reflective tape. Step 2, put some on your bag.
Ah, Christmas is almost upon us and it’s time to bring out some crazy DIY papercraft Christmas decorations to set your tree apart from all of the rest. You can create this papercraft Steve Jobs Christmas tree ornament all by yourself and hang it on your Christmas tree to make it Apple approved!
Geeks can come up with some great ideas holiday season rolls around, and this one dude named Ric Turner has created a cool light show that you can actually play. People that happen by his house can use a controller out front and help Santa dodge snowballs.
Amazingly, this beautiful 3D printer was built by some guy named Jim in New York. Just like normal printers, 3D printers allow you to print stuff but in 3D. No glasses required! Although this seems straight out of science fiction, the technology has been used since 2003 in the manufacturing segment.
Let’s be honest, I’ve never had the patience to knit. My mom showed me how, and I did it for about 2 minutes before I went back to playing with my LEGOs. Then again, Correx37 made a robotic knitting machine which will knit your sweaters by itself.
