    LightSail's tiny solar sail deployment motor sprung to life Sunday afternoon, marking an important milestone for The Planetary Society’s nail-biting test mission. Sail deployment began at 3:47 p.m. EDT (19:47 UTC) off the coast of Baja California, Mexico, as the spacecraft traveled northwest to southeast.
    Telemetry received on the ground showed motor counts climbing to the halfway point before LightSail traveled out of range. Power levels were consistent with ground-based deployment tests, and the spacecraft’s cameras were on. "All indications are that the solar sail deployment was proceeding nominally," wrote mission manager David Spencer in an email update. [ link ]
    DIY  
    YouTube user styropyro made a 40W laser shotgun. Powered by  a lithium polymer battery pack (capable up dumping 250A). The output of this laser is complete insanity, is made up of 8 parallel 5W laser beams totaling to 40W, and its capabilities in bursting balloons and reducing ping pong balls and pieces of wood to piles of flames and ash almost instantaneously.
    "The parallel beams are manipulated with lenses, sort of like how a choke modifies the spread of a shotgun blast.
    The massive diode array is powered by a huge lithium polymer battery pack (capable up dumping 250A) and the laser array is regulated by a whopping 24 LM317 drivers

    Thanks to the Wearable Muscle Sensor Platform. The project is currently up on Kickstarter but has already been fully funded. This is a tutorial on makezine to build your own claws.
    "Our tutorial will teach you to build bionic claws using our fourth-generation muscle sensor, the MyoWare. Simply flex your forearm muscle and *SNIKT*, a fraction of a second later the 4 inch claws extend out. Relax your forearm to retract the claws. We’ve even added a muscle-activated locking mechanism in case you want the claws to stay out without keeping your muscle flexed.  "

    Mad Max Doof Warrior Inspired Flamethrower


    "The inspiration for this project was the Doof Warrior’s flamethrower guitar from Mad Max. Nothing says rock-n-roll more than actual fire entwined with your tunes! This guy was completely ridiculously over the top and I loved it! The the entire movie he only cared about one thing, playing his music and spraying his fire. Even when people were having fist fights literally on top of him, he just wanted his guitar back.  "
