A Giant Basket That Uses Condensation to Gather Drinking Water

JOSEPH FLAHERTY
Around the world, 768 million people don’t have access to safe water, and every day 1,400 children under the age of five die from water-based diseases. Designer Arturo Vittori believes the solution to this catastrophe lies not in high technology, but in sculptures that look like giant-sized objects from the pages of a Pier 1 catalog.

The Best Tools Hidden in Windows' Command Line 
Walter Glenn 
While it may not always be the best choice in Windows, there are certain things you can only do from the command line. We've talked about a few command line essentials before, like using tracert to troubleshoot a flaky Internet connection and using recimg to create a custom Windows recovery image. Here are a few more you should probably know about (if you don't already).

Para a malta do Aeromodelismo, e Engenhocas em geral, eis como equilibrar as vossas Hélices, neste Instructable, com Ímanes e Materiais tirados de Sucata de Computador:




Magnetic propeller balancerDanijel0frk 
So you have spent a lot of money on your diy quadcopter(or any multirotor) and refuse to give any more, but you still need a propeller balancer. Balanced propeller is very if not the most important thing for multirotors.
Guess what, you can make your own, from old computer components.
If you happend to work in ICT company, there is always a lot of that stuff around. Besides broken hardware, some tools may also come handy. Let's begin with stuff you are going to need.

New Feddz E-Bike: Lifestyle Cruiser With Baggage Storage
Alyn Wallace
Germany based company Emo Bike GmbH have recently designed, built and showcased their new offering - the Feddz. While traditional motorcycles don’t really offer much in the way of storage, the Feddz offers 23 litres of space where you would expect to find a fuel tank and engine. This is because the Feddz is an E-Bike, powered by Lithiom batteries and an electric motor and the company are pushing the new technology with the slogan,“Let’s Feddz the city.”

Uma das tais ideias que grita "-Porque é que eu não me lembrei disto?"
Mas podem mas é começar já a usar, têem este Instructable mesmo para isso:



PC to Portable workstation/toolboxmichaelgohjs
Here is the back story for my project. (Ignore if you don't like boring "stories")
So i acquired 3 Dell Optiplex GX400 (pretty obsolete) desktops, after stripping it down bare to salvage parts i din't know what to do with the cases. Initially I wanted to toss them out for recycling but i thought I might as well reuse/upcycle it into something better. At the same time my summer break was coming to an end and I had to pack up my tools to be transported back to collage where I stay away from home. So it struck me to put one and one together and build a toolbox out of the old PC case. Its portable enough for me to transport between collage and home, and can be packed up into a really compact formfactor for storage or transport.

Red Pitaya? E imprimam os vossos Cartões de Visita, um Inversor, e um Phone Roverbot

Red Pitaya? 
O que raios é isso?

É uma forma económica e Open Source, de equipar um Laboratório com Instrumentos de Medida e Controladores, ora eis uma bela Dica da Designspark:


Red Pitaya

Red Pitaya is an open source measurement and control tool replacing many expensive laboratory instruments at a surprising price tag. This powerful tool is at the heart of a revolutionary Red Pitaya Ecosystem, which facilitates discovering, experiencing, learning, developing and sharing a variety of applications.

O que há de mais Geek, de mais Engenhocas, do que imprimirem os vosso próprios Cartões-de-Visita, logo ali, à frente do pessoal?
Pois agora podem fazer exactamente isto, se seguirem este Instructable!



Simple and Impressive Business Card Printer
Thingking
At some point most tinkerers and makers have to take the plunge into the real world - the world of suits and dividends and business cards. Without going completely "American Psycho" on your asses: business cards are important. In many ways they are our keys to the business world; the first impression making a massive impact, and potentially the difference between eating a Burger King in front of your computer and getting taken to a French restaurant for a business meeting.

E que tal controlarem um RoverBot com o vosso Smartphone, ou Computador, através da Wifi?
Façam de 007, por poco dinheiro, usando, é claro, um Arduino para construir isto:







DIY Phone Controlled Rover (Fast & Agile - FPV Drone)
ASCAS
Let's build a Bluetooth/ WiFi controlled FPV Drone! RoverBot is a highly educational Arduino based ATV-drone. It's simple to make, easy to program and is a great starter project for hobbyists! The bot is very fast and agile, not to mention of it carrying two "29,000 rpm" motors! It can surely outrun humans regardless of the terrain you're on!

This RoverBot is a soft prototype. My next agenda is to make v2.0 water resistant, shockproof and dirt-proof. The next one would probably carry metal-gearboxes and long range TX RX modules.

Uma casa feita à maneira, Fresa bicolor, e um Transformador Isolante!

Ora depois dum período em que tudo me impedia de cá voltar, cá esou eu outra vez com três novidades.

A primeira, é esta casa que se monta com uma Chave de Fendas, em 4 dias! 




Sustainable home can be built in four days using only a screwdriver
Adam Williams
A French architectural firm Multipod Studio recently unveiled a new sustainable house prototype that's lightweight, recyclable, and promises to be an inexpensive purchase and extremely efficient to run. The suitably-named Pop-Up House also boasts another notable selling-point: all that's required to assemble it is four day's patience and a standard electric screwdriver.









Eis uma maneira simples de fazer um vistaço, com a vossa Fresa CNC, a placa HDPE Bicolor, permite-vos uma espressão gráfica impecável, com a simples atenção à profundidade do trabalho de Fresa...



Two-Color HDPE - White on Green
Textured sheet with layers of contrasting colors ideal for engraving 
This King ColorCore® unique 3 layer high-density polyethylene sheet is perfect for engraving. A layer of green HDPE is sandwiched between two 0.050″ layers of white, making it easy to expose different colors while engraving or milling.
This material is strong and environmentally stabilized, meaning it can withstand harsh weather conditions. This makes it great for sign-making, marine applications, recreational equipment, etc.
https://www.inventables.com/technologies/two-color-hdpe-white-on-green








Se percebi bem, este Transformador protege-vos de Choques Eléctricos, mas é, ele mesmo, perigoso?
Hum, estranho e perigoso o suficiente, tanto para se experimentar, como para ter algum uso que não lembre a ninguém...





Microwave isolation transformer 
Gabse

Everything started when I set up my new workshop. I always wanted to have an isolation transformer so I decided to make one. I also had some microwave transformer and the case laying around.

3D a Cores! E um Laboratório portátil, e um Molde a Vácuo

Estes 2 brilhantes Jovens, trazem-vos a possibildade de imprimirem a Cores, na vossa Impressora 3D baratucha!
Fantástico!

Two college students invented an adapter that allows 3D printers to print in full color for less than $100
Signe Brewster
 
3D printing is generally a monochrome affair. Full-color printers are expensive, so the more casual user is likely stuck printing in one or two colors.
Cédric Kovacs-Johnson and Charles Haider, both chemical engineering undergraduates at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, say they have come up with a solution: a sub-$100 device that upgrades desktop 3D printers to print in a full rainbow of colors. They call it Spectrom.
The system is compatible with fused deposition modeling 3D printers that use a standard-size spool of filament. FDM printers melt string-like plastic bit by bit and lay it down in layers to create an object. Spectrom adds dye to the plastic as it melts, allowing printers to shift between colors.

E que tal um Laboratório de Electrónica portátil?
Eis como podem pôr tudo numa caixa, para terem apoio técnico, para onde forem:

Electronic-Lab in a Box
Since I work in a small flat with no separate space for handcrafts i struggle always with building before and cleaning up afterwards just for simple electronic work. There were always the same tools to search in boxes and cases, plug them in, find wires and solderin tin and so on. So for only 5 minutes work comes together just an hour or so for the setup time. For me the solution was a box where everything can be found at the same space where it belongs to.
Simple philosophy: Everything has a space, everything has its own space.



 

 

 

Mais uma caixa de Moldagem a Vácuo!

Esta, é mais maneirinha, pois é mais fácil de fazer:



Easy DIY Vacuum Former

I have always wanted to build a vacuum form machine and when I built my latest robot ( Click Here) I finally had a reason to. I needed to make a shell or top to my robot and I didn't want to mess around with fiberglass and all of the grinding and sanding. So here is my instructable on how to build an easy vacuum former with stuff you can buy locally. I have added some videos below:

Dicas à brava! Uma casa por quase nada, Ar Condicionado, e uma Serra motorizada, de Bancada!

Do nosso amigo Abrahão, vêem estas duas dicas, não valem só pelas ideias que eu selecciono, mas também porque ficam a conhecer mais 2 Sites para Engenhocas!
É bom!

Este Site, DIY Project World, relata-vos Projectos faça Você Mesmo, de toda a parte, como esta Cabana que se faz por quase nada, pode tembém servir de base para uma Oficina onde um Engenhocas pode estar finalmente à vontade, nas suas sete-quintas, a fazer ou reparar o que quizer!

Tiny Living At Its Cheapest: The $200 Micro-Home
Creating an inexpensive living space is a great way to have a place to hang out and enjoy yourself. Getting some when building this space can help you make the most of what you build. I found this incredible article with information about how to make yours at webecoist.momtastic.com by Steph. Click on the link below to find out what makes these so great.








E também do mesmo Site, como aproveitarem uma Pallete para fazerem um Sofá, qu esconde as almofadas nele mesmo, e assim, têem um canto da casa onde podem pousar Tralha, quando não precisam...
E quando é preciso, sentar-se confortávelmente, num Sofá!


Cheap’n'Chic Pallet Sofa
Been busy hacking around the house the last couple of days! Among other things, I’ve hacked the crap out of yet another discarded pallet, now enjoying a blissful afterlife as a neat little sofa in my kitchen with some equally neat magic storage, check it out:

Braille com Lego, Roto-Moldes para Impressoras 3D, Pegas para bicicletas, e Relays

Notícia da Tecmundo, este fenomenal míudo marca a diferença, pela positiva, pois fazer uma Impressora Braille, com Lego Mindstorms, é de louvar, sem reservas!
Grande Inciciativa, grande Adolescente, grande Inventor!





Adolescente de 12 anos usa LEGO para criar impressora Braile

Um garoto de apenas 12 anos está mostrando ao mundo que não existe idade certa para serem iniciados os estudos sobre tecnologia. Shubham Banerjee vive em Santa Clara (nos Estados Unidos) e acabou de criar uma impressora Braile com peças de LEGO Mindstorms, sendo que ela possui funcionalidades completamente aplicáveis à realidade.
Shubham Banerjee gastou US$ 350, menos de 20% do que seria gasto por uma impressora comum, que gira em torno dos US$ 2 mil. Além das peças de LEGO Mindstorms, também há algumas outras adicionais, como é o caso do rolo de papel de calculadoras. Com os braços robóticos, a impressora é capaz de mover os módulos responsáveis pela perfuração do papel, podendo criar cartas completas em menos de 10 segundos.









Este Engenhocas vem-vos oferecer esta Máquina de Moldagem, que permite a moldagem rápida dos vossos Objectos, um Molde muitas cópias, e muito mais rápidamente do que imprimindo TODAS as cópias em 3D!
