It is not unusual to see robotic snake-like contraptions. This though, from the CMU robotics lab, has taken it a step further. :)
Arthur Ganson has made this very strange mechanical contraption pulled by a wishbone! :-)
Bre Pettis and Joe Grand give in this video a crash course in the very popular open source hardware and software platform Arduino. Check it out!
There is something strangely nice with these organic-shaped wooden gears. The video above shows how to make them.
SLS, selective laser sintering is a well-known technology used for 3D printing prototypes. The project Replaser has managed to create this experiment as a home-made version of laser sintering.
This very interesting video shows the story behind and the making of the robot Myon.
In this video you can learn more about the very cool small EZR origami hang glider gliders that you can make from common phone book paper. Check out more at ScienceToyMaker.
One of the charms of electric vehicles is that they in most cases rely on simple technology that most of us can afford and work with. This guy shows in the video above how he modified a standard motorcycle and converted it into electric drive for a reasonable amount of money. See more at electricmotion.org.
Sometimes even a toolbox can be fascinating to look at and be beautiful! :) Read more here.
