hackaday links

Links

ouch. i burnt myself cooking up all these links. but now that they’re done, I can dish them out to you guys.

if you’ve got some cash and a ton of free time, make your own R2-D2. [xytec]
be a real dork and make an ethernet testing keychain. [2bitwhore]
an interesting method of scanning negatives. [foo]
totally missing my childhood now. this is all about super soakers and water guns. they even have a section on building your own water gun. some of which are pretty insane.
uh, honda apparently is down with letting asimo help kids learn to cross the street. [sarge]
a low cost analog and digital tv modulator. you uhf pirate….arrrrrr. [joe]

whoa! cool stuff! listen to the sound of the data on your harddrive. i never would have thought about doing this. [dryicerx]

  1. Yeah the second link has been “hackadotted” (or slashdotted? i don’t read slashdot). Someone bust out the mirrors. If anyone made one.

  2. wtf i cant believe the sound of your hard drive got hackdotted ;p how gay i have done that hundreds of times to test if my sound was working

  3. For a variation on hard drive noise use ‘cat -A’
    -A is a flag that prints non-printing characters, it makes the sound a little more whiny, but when you get to a hunk of data it gives cool videogame-esque sounds.

  4. The last time i was with some friends we used the slackware terminal to listen to the data…we kept creating text files with our names in them and playing them…

    “Man…your name sounds bad…”

    something like that…

  5. Those Astromech droids are pretty cool.

    Somehow it’s a little dissapointing to see ‘em not being equipped with the odd set of leg-mounted thruster units or say, a periscope.

    (please don’t mention the estes R2D2 rocket!)
