PS3 Controller Cell Phone Mount

PS3-controller-cellphone

Although the details of this build are quite scarce, not much is needed considering all that this cell phone/PS3 controller “mount” is made of is 3 binder clips and a few rubber bands. A very ingenious solution.

Overengineered Throwie

On the other end of the spectrum, I’ve spent way too much time overengineering the throwie (eventually it ended up using a ping-pong ball). Be sure to watch the first video at 0:32 for an impressive horizontal placement, or check out the baloon throwies at the end of the post for even more fun!

Chinese Noodle Slicing Robot

robot-slicer

This robot may be appropriately engineered in function, but the form of this noodle-slicer has a distinctly Asian style. We think it may have been designed as a prop for a Godzilla movie originally.

2D Glasses

2D-glasses

3D glasses may have been all the rage in 2009, but it’s 2012 so you may want to get your hands on a pair of 2D glasses. These instructions will tell you how to make glasses to convert a 3D film into 2D if the third dimension annoys you or makes you dizzy. Thx [Brian] and [Victor]!

test-box

As seen in this post from the Bacteria forum, the test box originally featured at [HAD] has now been updated to include variable regulators, volt meters and an LED tester.  Check it out on it’s source, [Downing's Basement]. Thx [Mike]!

    Or you could buy Hank Green’s 2D glasses.

    Not Godzilla but Ultraman. Sheesh!

    $2000 for a Noodle Robot, you can hire an entire Chinese village for 50 years for that kind of money!

    Sounds like the 3D glasses guy has seen a bit of what monocular diplopia looks like.
    I’ve got it ,horizontaly, in both eyes.
    Whole world looks like a TV with old school rabbit ears ghosting.

    …Big part of why I hate Flash video.

    I can see the novelty in the noodle-slicing robot, where it might draw in customers.
    But I think it would have made more sense to just build an appliance like a cuisinart to do it; faster, smaller, less expensive. Especially if you are just going to put it in the kitchen where it will take up space, and no customers will see it anyway.
