Useless Machine Counts How Many Times It has Proven Useless

Useless Machine Counts How Many Times It has Proven Useless
For those not familiar with the concept, a Useless Machine is a device with only one function, specifically the ability to turn itself off. In other words, when you turn it on, it turns itself off. Now, I’m sure DIYers could easily make a machine that can turn itself off…

DIY Flight Simulator: to Infinity and Beyond!

DIY Flight Simulator: to Infinity and Beyond!

Geek Builds His Own Nautilus Speakers From Scratch

Geek Builds His Own Nautilus Speakers From Scratch
Speakers for the home theater can get frighteningly expensive. The first time I saw speakers that sold for tens of thousands of dollars I figured there couldn’t be that much work put into the things. One of those crazy expensive sets of speakers was the Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus, which…

Game Racing Ottoman

Game Racing Ottoman
I don’t know what possessed an Australian modder to come up with this hack, but I have to say that I’m surprised that it hasn’t popped up before. Lyshco is a member of the Overclockers in Australia forum and he just finished working on this racing ottoman. He placed a…

Robotot Costume is Part Kid, Part Robot Cop and All Awesome

Robotot Costume is Part Kid, Part Robot Cop and All Awesome
One of the favorite flicks of my youth was Robocop. Sure, the second movie kind of sucked, but I’d buy the original for a dollar. The premise was out there for the time when it came out but it’s a geek classic right up there with TRON in my book.…

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.
Ok, this is my kind of contest. The whole point of Sparkfun Electronics’ Anitmov competition is to create robots which are supposed to complete a trivial task in a highly inefficient way, in the course, destroying themselves.
