Nice build for a motorized lazy susan

Pretty neat hack to convert a Lazy susan to be motorized.  Cheap too…well except the motor…

Nice ideas to do with kids for solar power

The balloon one is nice one to try out.

Convert a lawnmower to air

Compressed air that is.  Interesting build (pretty simple too since you don’t need a carb, mag, etc).  I like the tweak to move the air coming in/out tube.

Simple clothes bar for a car

Basically one tube with a bent over end is inserted into a middle tube that holds the clothes.  Good idea and cheap too.

Another nice LED sign build

I like the use of wood for the backdrop.  You could do other things in the background instead of wood too.

Take part of a bike frame and use it for a key safe

Interesting idea…but what if someone just takes the pipe and cuts the keys loose for later use.  I could actually see making this but I don’t think I would weld the bottom.  Maybe just fold it over?

3D print your own bladeless fan

Ironically its not really blade less (fan is actually located in the base of these things).  This one is pretty neat build, uses a computer fan to push the air.

Another solar heater way to generate electricity

Have a magnify glass focus on one side of a peltier, the have that in water to cool the other side to generate electricity.  Interesting idea overall.

Make your own drone catcher

I almost fell over watching this one.  Pretty neat idea (thought range isn’t the greatest).  Guess if you need to capture some drones without killing them, this would do it.

I like the last one best…give its over $40 a whack…it frees up a drawer.
