Build a water pump that uses cordless drill batteries

Convert a cheap digital rain monitor into a high end one

The author took a cheap rain measurer and modified it so an arduino could read the data and send it to a controller.  Of course I don’t think I would be lucky enough to find one of these for 43 … Continue reading

Nice simple Aquaponics setup.

The author made a nice, simple, and cheap aquaponics setup for apartments.  Another step to take is to add some LED’s to it so its more like a piece of furniture. http://www.instructables.com/id/Aquaponics-Minimal-Apartment-DIY/?ALLSTEPS

Build a catamaran out of styrofoam

I am amazed how well this build turned out.  The author made a simple sailing catamaran from 2x4s and insulation foam board.  Only thing I would do different is give it a coat of paint. http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Styrofoam-Catamaran/
