• SatanVision: Hellishly Bad TV

    SatanVision: Hellishly Bad TV

    The SatanVision is supposed to represent how televisions will look like in hell.  Barring that the fiery furnace exists, it should play nice with its closest earthly relative, too – the annual Burning Man festival, for which the apparatus was made. Lo-fi and painfully red, the display hardware was created by DIY enthusiast David Forbes, who spent months of his life and $1000′s of his own cash to make the crappiest TV ever.  Well, nobody said he was smart, so [...]

  • Sudoku Solver Robot Answers Puzzles, Writes Legibly

    Sudoku Solver Robot Answers Puzzles, Writes Legibly

    Why bother solving Sudoku puzzles when you can get a robot to do it?  That makes sense, of course, if you can build a text-reading, puzzle-solving and answer-writing android like Swedish hacker Hans Andersson’s Sudoku Solver, which he built using a Lego Mindstorms kit. The robot performs a quick scan of the puzzle, sweeping the light sensor across the page to determine which cells are empty.  Once it takes account of the blank areas, it looks through all the non-empty [...]

    Tom Wright’s Street-Legal Bumper Cars

    Bumper cars were crazy fun when I was a kid.  Even as an adult today, they still look immensely entertaining and I’d probably be on one every weekend if only everyone else lined up to ride them weren’t in grade school.  Instead of drawing power from the floor or ceiling like regular flat rides, these bumper cars seen around the San Diego area not only run independently – you can drive them down public roads. That’s right, these bumper cars, [...]
