Weekly Roundup 12/3/11

In case you missed them the first time around, here are our most popular posts from the past week.

In first place was a repeat from last week of how you can make a privacy screen from an old LCD display. We want to serve up fresh stuff in this post though so we’ll add one to our top five this week.

Coming in at second place is a post about [Alex’s] real-life Star Trek door that opens and closes pneumatically. Live long and Prosper [Alex]!

Following up in third place is a post about a proposal to build 100 government-run hackerspaces in China. Surely there will be bureaucracy and red tape involved involved with such a thing but maybe the U.S. could take a note about this and help us stay competitive with the rest of the world.

Next we have a post about a project where [Brainiac27] built a 1300 lumen bike light. For those of you who don’t follow the latest in lighting trends, that is like having a 100 Watt spot light mounted to the front of your bike!

Following that, take a look at this post about [FXI Technologies]’ new dongle that lets you run android on any computer or HDMI television. This thing is the size of a thumb drive and yet packs some pretty serious fire power.

Finally, if you are looking for an interesting way to work with plastic, take a look at this post where you are shown how to make prosthetic parts using old soda (or pop if you are one of THOSE people :) ) bottles.
