Make your own biodiesel at home safely

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on October 10th, 2010

If you want to make your own biodiesel at home, then this concept personal biodiesel processor is a safe and efficient way to go. It allows you to make an alternate fuel source right from the comfort of your home. Screw the big oil companies.

Just pour the necessary ingredients into the top and the device does the rest. The automated pumps, heating elements and thermostats take care of the entire process. A display shows you the current status. A pull-out tank collects the waste glycerin, which can be easily disposed of, or used for making soap.

Homemade Fallout 3 plasma rifle

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on August 24th, 2010

The A3-21 Plasma Rifle kicks ass in Fallout 3 and it looks pretty awesome in the real world too. Ryan Palser created this bad boy, which took five months to complete. His wife painted it up real nice to give it the weathered look. If they ever make a Fallout movie, they better turn to Ryan and wife for props.

We’d love to see more of Fallout’s weapons in real life, maybe even some Brotherhood of Steel armor. To paraphrase the song from the game, Ryan doesn’t want to set the world on fire, he just wants to start a flame in our hearts with this beast.

Homemade portable 8-Track player

Homemade portable 8-Track playerThe 8-Track may be long dead, but it’s not forgotten. Just ask Cheap Trick. It lives on in the hearts and minds of a generation that loved Disco, turntables and Three’s Company.

And while a portable 8-track walkman seems like a ridiculous idea, someone has actually gone and done it. Of course, it isn’t tiny, but it’s probably the most portable 8-track player ever made. At least that we know of.

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2009

Petaminx Dodecahedral puzzleYou know those geniuses that can solve a Rubiks cube in like 20 seconds? This puzzle would drive even them insane. The Petaminx is a handmade puzzle by puzzle maker Jason Smith. It sort of resembles the Rubik’s cube.

It just happens to have twice as many sides and many more pieces to align. In all there are 975 parts and 1,212 stickers. It took mere 75 hours to build and that included the molding process and the placing each of those stickers by hand. Check out a video of this amazing puzzle below.

Homemade Steampunk lamp

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on February 26th, 2009

Homemade Steampunk lampThis Steampunk lamp would be right at home lighting up the desk of a 19th century mad scientist. It’s basic,simple and unlike some Steampunk creations, isn’t overdone and overly thought out. Creator Michael Pusateri made it from an old wooden cigar box, two 60 watt bulbs, a handful of copper wire.

He admits that he got “a little fancy” and painted the ceramic mounts with textured copper paint. And he acknowledges that he could have thrown much more steampunk at the thing, but likes the simplicity. Check out a video below.

Homemade Scrabble keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2009

Homemade Scrabble keyboardSomeone loves Scrabble a whole bunch and by creating this awesomely nerdy keyboard, they must have scored themselves a quadruple word score. It’s a wood and brushed aluminum keyboard that features real Scrabble tiles. The points score is slightly edited to show each key’s secondary function.

Everyone knows Scrabble and this is an awesome mod that looks like it could have come straight out of the game box. It’s a USB keyboard and the aluminum accents will very nicely match the Mac that it will be paired with.


Make Your Own Peanut Butter

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on September 6th, 2008

Make Your Own Peanut ButterSome of you may prefer making your own foods rather then buying them from store shelves. If you choose to make your own peanut butter, well that’s just Skippy. Good for you. It will be fresher, not loaded with preservatives and other chemicals and you’ll get the respect of peanut enthusiasts like former President Jimmy Carter. Your sandwich of choice, PB&J will taste awesome.

Just pour 2 cups of peanuts and decide whether you want crunchy or smooth. After that, just spread it, eat and let it stick to the roof of your mouth. It will cost $50 starting at the end of the month. Might just be easier to buy it in the store, but at a few bucks a jar this machine will save you money.

Homemade Pong watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on August 31st, 2008

Homemade Pong watchPong is hip again. Or should I say wrist? The Homemade Pong Watch was created by John, a lover of Pong who managed to compress all of the electronics for the watch into a trim 10mm-thick case. The 96×64 OLED display runs continuously and as John points out, there is no need to press a button to see the time. Battery life is 25 hours, so recharging is done every night. It looks absolutely worthy of my wrist in action. I would watch it play all day and get nothing done. Check out the video below. Excellent work.

Homemade PSP phone is not what we were hoping for

Homemade PSP phone is not what we were hoping for
This guy got sick and tired of waiting on a real honest to god PSP phone, so he took matters into his own hands. He integrated what looks like a HAIER mobile phone with a touchscreen to the back of the PSP, getting rid of the UMD drive. He gets props for doing it and I don’t want to rain on anybody’s PSP parade, but um, well I have to say it’s a tad fugly isn’t it? Still, at least he’s doing something to birth a PSP phone into the world.
