Venice in Lego.

In our childhood, we all had our share of fun & we must have made cars, trucks, planes, trains, buildings, castles, sculptures, ships, spaceships, and even working robots using these Lego pieces.
But when you mix the Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Bridges", & "The City of Light" with Lego we get 'Venice in Lego' something which Lego fans would like to create.

Virtual Windows.


What if only your imagination limited what you could see outside your windows? Thinking of this, Ryan Hoagland came up with the idea of creating a 'virtual window'.
The Virtual Windows above consists of eight 15" LCD panels connected via custom-built cables to two nVidia Quadro NVS 400 PCI video cards, each with four DVI outputs. The LCD backlight inverters are driven by their own power supply (sitting on top of the PC) and the panels get their 3.3v power from the PC's ATX power supply. The total desktop resolution is 3072x2048. A small Visual Basic app cycles pre-cut images every 15 minutes & Windows manages the arrangement. The only reason the cables are visible is because the fireplace is in the way and that wall isn't due to be remodeled for quite a while. How to go about it?

Step 1: Proof of concept.



Step 2: Power for backlight inverter.



Step 3:Custom video cables.



Step 4: Four panels in a prototype configuration.




Step 5: Build the window frames.




Step 6: Install them on the wall.





Cool isn't!

Beer Can Chair.

How to make a beer can chair?
Step one: Obviously you need lots of beer cans. So you need to drink lots of it before we start this.
Wash all the cans before you stick them or the chair is going to smell in a few weeks.
Done with this, next you will need lots of glue & perspex.
Gluing may be a tiring job & at times there may be a problem when 2 cans are to be stuck at an angle.
One thing should not be forgotten, that it needs large amount of cans & it took about 3 months to complete this.
Though once its done, you may opt for a few rubber pads on the seating area which will provide the grip & cushions on the chair for some comfort.
Now that we got a beer chair anyone interested in making a footstool to accompany the chair?
