    I applied for and was granted entrenched to the #rbcreation Red Bull Turbull Encabulator competition. My team was one of 50 who submitted a video all about lights: http://youtu.be/IRHrkJMjoaU

    Enjoy! BTW, you'd find a Visual Music Machine & Edutainment Device at Creativity Cafe for sure!

  • @everfalling: I believe I recognize the location from the last photo, are you a student at AAU? I took Bill's neon class last fall, it was awesome. :)

  • @kim_a: Indeed I am. I took Bill's class in spring of 2012 (i got that hermit crab into the spring show :) ). He's a great guy and an awesome teacher. I only wish i had more ideas involving neon because it's a fun medium to work in.

  • Hi Folks, Here's a full-sized water-cooled PC Case Mod I made about 6 years ago, inspired by the Doom 3 game franchise. It's titled Doom 3: Project Mars City. It's made entirely from scratch, with some kit-bashing. It has motorized, remote controlled doors, steam generator, lights etc. I also have a video of the build on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a89yRqqK1T8

    I have many more build pics if interested--Enjoy!

  • @Crimson_Sky: Hey I remember following that build a while back. Great stuff.

  • @therealjustin: that looks amazing! Which hasbro figures are they I cant find them. They look realy detailed?

  • @therealjustin: that looks amazing! Which hasbro figures are they I cant find them. They look realy detailed?

  • @Strongy:

    Thanks!

    They are from the standard Hasbro 3.75" Iron Man 2 line, also called Marvel Universe. No extra detailing was needed really but finding ones with decent paint apps can be difficult.

    Okay this workstation is not a thing of beauty, a craftsperson i aint but its brill because its the first thing i have made with my teenage son. I made it for his room, his geekyness had outgrown his space, made it out of plywood in an afternoon. It was a totally organic project, we scribbled a plan on a scrap of paper and went for it. Really chuffed with it :).

    That is great, looks like a great work space!

  • You drink your Raspberry Wheat homebrew out of a cool old bird glass. I don't make the rules, I just follow them. Best batch yet!

  • Hi everybody! What an inspiration all the Tested guys and Adam and Jaime are! Just found the forum here and already having fun checking out everybody's fun stuff...I am working on a public sculpture to take the http://www.cambriascarecrows.com/ to the next level...My Mom owns a house in Cambria and got me into her scarecrow project..She is making the costume and I am making all the props..Please head over to my new blog to see all my pics!

    : http://gandalfscarecrow.blogspot.com

    Here is a teaser of whats over on my blog...this first pic is of the finished version of Gandalf's sword Glamdring..I know it's not a perfect replica but I am learning fast and trying to be as authentic as possible while taking a few small artistic liberties due to materials and tool access..I have so many pics maybe too many to re-post here due to time constraints but I would love to invite everybody over there.

    I know the scabbard is brown..It looked better than the blue so I am running with it..Working on the belts for it now...

    I realize I have changed the form of the staff a little as well come on over to my blog to understand my changes more.

    I believe in every single person out there that has a vision of making something they see their dreams become real and use that as a driving, positive force in their lives and careers. Adam and Jaime and superheros and have helped me so much in my life to overcome obstacles I am thrilled to be hanging out on here and look forward to hopefully meeting new people and holding everyone up towards their dreams....TO THE WORKSHOP!

  • Hey, this is an Ironman helmet I am working on. Its not 100% yet. This was just a rough paint job to keep me motivated to get to the finish line. I still have some minor OCD cleanup to do on the edges and some angles. Its almost there.

  • I really love the Tanner Goods Cardholder wallet. It's such a clean and simple design. So I decided to make one for myself. I've never worked with leather, but I've always wanted to. So I consumed as much info online as I could and went out and bought resources. I came home and a few hours later, (not including drying time for the dye and sealant) I had this. I now want to move on to making more complex items. I have a few original ideas in the works.

  • @Josie: great build

  • @iliketomakestuff: i was wondering where you got the white board material?

  • Something i knocked up one afternoon. Pretty hard to find beer pong tables over here in Australia and its pricey to get them shipped from the States so I got some dimensions off the Beer Pong website went down to the local hardware store grabbed some melamine some paint and the folding legs and about 4 hours and $40 later had me a pretty decent looking table.

    Next one I'm working on is a desk that will incorporate my PC and gaming consoles into the ultimate gaming desk

  • This is a mobile I designed and made for son.

  • @stinkyaddy: There are full build details at www.iliketomakestuff.com/son-of-uber-desk/ but it's a whiteboard paint made by Rustoleum that I got at Home Depot. There are a few different brands, but I've had success with this one multiple times. It's about $20 a quart, so a little pricey.

  • here's a Dragon i made for a Production of Shrek, at the MUNY in St Louis , 2 week build, low budget, she is performed by 9 puppeteers. . made with Micro pore foam, and spandec, popcorn fabric, PVC, and numerous other "findings"

  • I still have a long way to go, but I am working on a robot, dubbed Project ATLaS. I am a pretty busy and have a few different projects going at the same time, but I work on ATLaS as I have time..

    I can't seem to upload the image, it is stuck at 0%, but you can see my current progress in the new forums at..

  • I don't have much budget, just making some props with recycled materials.

  • Great stuff Exoen!

    I'm a member of the R2 Builders Club - I'm one of the many builders worldwide that has built a styrene (HIPS) droid using the awesome Dave Everett plans. Here's my attempt so far:

    I use a building technique I picked up from the days when I used to make model aircraft from balsa - magnetic jigs. Great for when you need an extra pair of hands :) They're just cabinet latch magnets on a sheet of mild (or galvanised) steel that has been glued to a baseboard (15mm marine ply in my case). It's great for holding work in place whilst cement sets. Another great benefit is that work clamped at 90º is super accurate. Here's a couple of examples:

    Happy building guys, love this thread! :D


  • I am a leader in Cub Scouts, and every summer we have a model rocket launch.

    This year I wanted to do something special, so I created the ARLCS.

    It is an Android (4.1) connected to an Arduino (Mega2560) via a USB shield with a relay shield providing the higher voltage switching.

    It has full safety measures to detect igniter fault and two relay switching to prevent accidental fire if one of the relays is fused on startup.

    It needs some tweaking, but it's working pretty well.
