Man Creates Working 3D Printed RC Motorcycle With Moving Rider

DIY stuff doesn’t necessary make things cheaper, but the process offers gratification that money can’t buy. Gratification like the ability to build your own radio controlled version of the 2016 Draxter Concept Drag Bike and maybe, even a 2016 Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP. We already piqued your interest, didn’t we? No? Well, then perhaps the fact that the aforementioned scaled, RC versions each has a rider that moves will. A RC motorcycle is, of course, nothing new, and I am sure a 3D printed one isn’t either, but one that features an articulated rider with arms, head and torso that moves like a real person riding like Brett Turnage’s creations? And DIY? Now, that’s something worthy of any motorcycle enthusiast, tinkerer, or RC aficionado’s attention. Continue reading Man Creates Working 3D Printed RC Motorcycle With Moving Rider

Custom Bike With Real Car Tires Is What Dark Knight’s Bicycle Would Look Like

Bicycles with big, fat tires are all the rage now and to be honest, I will never understand how the extra fat will help in the ride experience both on and off-road. I mean, logically speaking, the wider the contact surface, the harder you will have to pedal, ain’t it? However, notwithstanding my own skepticism, I do somehow find bikes with fat tires oddly attractive. So, just imagine my excitement when I saw this custom bicycle that rolls on actual car tires. Created by Instructables member Mr-Mash, Car Wheel Bicycle, as it is called, was a result of trying to pick up the art of welding.

RediTape – The Goodness Of Regular Duct Tape Without The Bulk

You know what they say? There’s nothing a duct tape can’t fix or do, and that saying is not an urban legend; this trusty adhesive tape has been proven itself time and time again which makes one wish you could bring it wherever you go. Alas, you can’t, well, at least it is not quite possible if you aren’t wearing a cargo pants with huge-ass pockets. But that’s until RediTape Pocket-sized Duct Tape comes along. While RediTape may be of a pocketable size, it is no less wider in width as a regular roll of duct tape. In other words, RediTape sports the same 2-inch width as with any roll variety, but instead of the cumbersome roll form, it comes in a convenient-to-stowaway, flatten form so all 5 yards of this legendary, do-it-all tape can easily slips into your pocket – any pocket.

Who Needs A Treehouse When You Can Have An 18-Foot Tall ‘Playable’ AT-AT

British garage inventor Colin Furze is known to invent and build all sorts of crazy stuff, ranging from fire-breathing pulse jet-powered trike to homemade hoverbike to ‘less insane’ things like remote controlled trash can, but for his latest build, it was surprisingly sane and danger-free too, well, that’s unless you count falling off an AT-AT as a real danger. So, yes. Colin has constructed an enormous AT-AT based off the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie and he wasn’t in it alone; eBay UK has his back with all the supplies he needed to realize a real world AT-AT and no, I am 100 percent sure he did not spend 226.5 million dollars to build it.

Rotary Dial Cell Phone May Not Be Practical But It Is Super Cool Anyway

You know what it is that makes steampunk so alluring? It is the ’tech’ which we can relate to, expressed in a fantasy sort of way which often features stuff like gears and cogs, and steam power, in place of batteries and microprocessor. I think you get the idea and if you do get the idea, you’d be impressed by this DIY Rotary Cell Phone Prototype put together by YouTube Mr. Volt. Yes, it is a cell phone and yes, it has the good’ol rotary dial that reminiscent of the 1920s landline phone, you know, the actual phone, phone before it got replaced by keypad on the now-nearly obsolete fixed line communication device? Yea. That phone. Continue reading Rotary Dial Cell Phone May Not Be Practical But It Is Super Cool Anyway

Awesome DIY Pinhole Potato Camera Literally Takes “Potato Quality” Images

Badly taken photographs are often referred to as “potato quality” which I thought is an insult to the starchy, tuberous crops because potatoes are actually much sought after as far as gastronomy is concerned. Seriously, you don’t find other starchy crops turned into French Fries, do you? Thus, I rest my case. Granted, the look does leave much to be desired. That, I can’t argue. Anyways, one Albany, Western Australia-based amateur photographer, Colin Lowe, took “potato quality” a little too literally by cobbling up a pinhole camera made out of, you guessed it, potato.
