How To Fold The World's Farthest-Flying Paper Airplane

Gear  |  DIY
The paper craft was designed by John Collins. In February 2012, John Collins, a.k.a The Paper Airplane Guys, broke the all-time distance record for paper airplane flight by throwing his airplane at a total distance of 226 feet and 10 inches.
Collins' new book, The New World Champion Paper Airplane Book: Featuring the World Record-Breaking Design, with Tear-Out Planes to Fold and Fly:
Paper airplanes embody the scientific method. Every throw is an experiment. It's a hobby that begs the paper pilot to understand ever more in order to excel. Hypothesis, experiment design, trial, and results—it's all built into every plane and every throw. To play with a paper airplane is to dabble in science, whether you know it or not.
We have a number of global issues confronting us. Global energy shortages, food shortages, water shortages, and something people are calling global warming are all worrisome. These problems will have answers that only science can provide. We have no spare brains on the planet. We need everyone thinking about these challenges in a rigorous way.
Imagine this: a world of people playing with science, who get up every morning, focus on what's good, and imagine how to make more of that. You can call me a dreamer. I don't mind. You don't have to believe a word of what I say. Just make a paper airplane and experience how exhilarating that feels. We're born makers. When you make something, anything from a pie to a pencil drawing, it's like waking a dormant part of you. The world shifts slightly. You can feel it, and it feels good.

Polygon skull mask Out of Cardboard

Array
Gear  |  DIY
Etsyer Wintercroft offers plans and instructions to make your own 3D polygon skull mask from cardboard.
"The instructions and templates are designed to be easy to follow, so that the mask can be assembled by anyone, using local materials and removing the need for shipping. besides it's good fun turning a 2D material in to a 3D mask. The templates come plain white and you can decorate the finished mask however you like.
This mask is simple to make and the construction techniques are the same as my other masks. basically, if you can cut out shapes, match up numbers and tape edges together, you can build the mask. It is as simple as that. It takes approximately two to three hours to build from printing the templates to finishing the mask. The finished masks are pretty robust due the their polygon construction and will survive the wildest of parties."

Assemble-It-Yourself 'Zombie Proof' Log Cabins For Sale

Gear  |  DIY
This is Tiger Log Cabin's £70,000 (~$113,000) Zombie Fortification Cabin (ZFC-1). That cost is just for the materials though, you have to assemble it yourself though or pay another £13,000 (~$21,000) for them to come do it for you.
"The ZFC-1 comprises of three sections, all of which are independent from each other with two lockable doors securing each building. This means for a zombie to breach the main large section they would have to somehow breach three very securely locked doors - which even your most advance lock picker would struggle to compromise. One of the smaller buildings is a garage with secure roller shutter doors - still large enough to secure a military vehicle or getaway car. The other building comes with a built in storage unit for food to help you last the duration of the apocalypse. There is also a great place to store any other weapons you require to keep the undead at bay. The third larger building at the back has two floors (containing a bedroom, a kitchen, a living room and even a gym) as well as an upper deck to give you a 360 degree vantage point with smart slots in the decking wall to allow you to shoot at intruders in the surrounding area. In the middle of the three buildings protected by walls around the outside and a mesh roof is a small garden to allow you some outdoor time and to plant and grow vegetables."
You know what the major flaw with this thing is? Actually, a couple things: 1) there are windows to break if zombies manage to infiltrate the garden, and windows are easier to break than walls. 2) there are doors. Zombies might not be that smart, but they do recognize something that looks different. Doors should blend in with the rest of exterior. 3) It's wood. Wood is flammable...
