Instructables member blogsdo is a pretty awesome guy. He made this “quick and dirty” Landspeeder X-34 for his son’s 6th birthday party. He used a chassis from a pedal powered Original Kettcar and built the frame around it.
We all want our own personal interdimensional portal, but you can’t find real ones just anywhere. And even if you do, you might get trapped in another dimension. So this one is much safer. This infinity mirror has a series of Arduino controlled LEDs that can change their color.
