Wrote Kevin Kelly, "You remove the spring from a wooden or plastic spring clothespin, and insert it between two chopsticks — perhaps with a little grove shaved on the chopstick shank. The result is a pair that is easy to use and requires no life-long skill to pick up grains of rice."

DIY Computer Chair

Array
Gear  |  DIY
Ron Bean of Milwaukee Makerspace built this gloriously impractical computer chair:

The structure is a little haphazard because I was making it up as I went along. I had planned to make all the angles adjustable, but when I found an angle that seemed right, it turned out to be exactly 30 degrees, so I drilled some holes and bolted it in place. Next time I’ll start with that, and the structure will look more like I planned it that way…
The monitor and bookstand can be raised on drawer slides to get them out of the way. The weight is balanced by two paint cans full of pea gravel. I think the monitor should be slightly lower, and maybe a little farther away, so when I take it apart to take it home, I’ll drill a few more adjustment holes (everything bolts together, and no single piece is more than 6 ft long, so it will fit in my car).

Home-made Iron Man Mk 1 Suit

Array
Gear  |  DIY
A Chinese telecom worker Wang Kang, who wears his Iron Man armour to his workplace in Shanghai, China. The foam costume took three months and $450 to make and weighs 50kg. The 25-year-old came up with the idea after seeing the 2008 hit movie starring Robert Downey Junior.
"'No colleagues knew my mission, and some of them froze there in seeing me approach,' he said. 'Some were even screaming for being scared.' He began building the costume at the end of February and it took him around three months to complete, at a cost of around $450. But Wang said the effort had been well worth it - with his costume drawing praise from his bosses and compliments from women. He claimed some had even 'fallen in love' with him because of it. 'They said I am a happy and creative man, and they wanted to know me,' he said. " Watch the video of it in action after more.

Life-sized Lego Master Chief Armor

Array

Array
Gear  |  DIY
Ben Caulkins spent 6 months building Master Chief armor completely out of Lego.

(I)t was after I saw some really amazing LEGO creations at my first LEGO convention, Brickworld, that I really seriously started thinking about it. At first it was just a fantasy, which is reasonable enough, I mean, come on, a full-blown LEGO Master Chief costume? It is pretty ridiculous. But when I started to take it seriously, I finally realized that it was possible, and I committed myself to it.
I put a surprising amount of thought into which part I would construct first, and I finally settled on the helmet because I thought that if I could do a convincing MOC of the Master Chief’s helmet, and be able to wear it, I could do the rest of the suit.

Moddder adds ammo counter to automatic weapons

Gear  |  DIY
This is an ammo counter that was built by a DIY modder named Michael Ciuffo
"The custom gadget uses a rather simple way of counting shots. Rather than keeping track of the bullets themselves, it uses an accelerometer to measure the gun’s recoil. Since different guns are going to have a different amount of recoil, this can be adjusted. Also adjustable is the counter itself, since you may have larger or smaller magazines.
