Hackaday links

Not to start on a downer, but Robert Moog died Sunday. We’d like to do a roundup of good homemade synthesizer projects so send them into the tip line.

Jet powered beer cooler, this is an old favorite of mine that got sent in by two separate people. Please give your sources. I like this project because it is so unnecessary. He cools the beer by venting propane as fast as possible, but that isn’t safe so he builds a jet engine out of a turbo to burn the propane off.

Our friends at Divester have a nice ROV project link, lots of pictures.

Treehugger is holding a DIY contest.  The prize is a very appropriate solar powered backpack. So, head over and represent for Hack-A-Day.

Dry ice based air conditioner, inspired by the previous homebrew air conditioner. [hyperblue]

    LOLOLOLOL hackaday uses microsoft!!

    i guess you had to put that newegg advertisement with the referer code in the links to dish out all that money to gates! lolololol

  2. Like the site – mostly cool projects – but that homemade tattoo gun is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Anyone stupid enough to use it risks all types of infection and should start out with “I’m a moron” tattoo’d on their forehead, just to label themselves clearly before they die a horrible death due to Septicemia.
