Hackaday links

The first anniversary of Hack-A-Day is coming up Monday September 5th. So if you’ve got any pictures of Hack-A-Day swag in the wild, now is the time to send them in. Since it is labor day I’ll probably be idling on the #hackaday Efnet channel most of the day too. So stop by and say hi.

Wondering what to do with the vacuum forming table? The process was used to create the case for this portable Dreamcast. [ian]

The ReBirth software synth has been retired and released for free. The software models two Roland 303s, an 808 and a 909. [via MeFi]

The competition for the Treehugger DIY contest is heating up. Check out this solar powered hydrofoil. UPDATE: Readers have cried foul because Marquette’s Solar Energy Society deserves all of the credit for this project.

Fabienne was wondering the other day how to make private links in del.icio.us. She dug up this clever bookmarklet hack that encrypts your links.

How to make your Molex power connectors glow. [AD]

I’m not sure if these guys are in the DARPA Grand Challenge or if they just enjoy running crap over in their homebuilt tank. [Baconjacobs]

I hope you’re having a good weekend.

    With regard to the Hydrofoil article.

    Terry had nothing to do with the contstruction of this boat. It was created by a team at Marquette long before Terry joined. Terry has never driven the boat. It was driven in the SolarSplash competition http://www.solarsplash.com . The boat’s website can be found at http://www.ses.marquette.edu/
    It is actually a carbon fiber hull.

    ripsaw looks incredible. the hd suspension system is pure genius!
    The best part is that it’s basically stuff we as enthusiasts stand a chance of getting our hands on, or adapting to our own uses!

    I wanted to thank you for the ReBirth link. I have been looking for a synth program for a while, and this is exactly what I need.

    Thanks again, and keep up the good work.
