Antique Weather Clock

Peter Schirmer's website has the unique gadget made out of a Antique Clock that tells the weather. It uses a servo, a phidgets USB servo controller connected to a computer, and Yahoo weather to report the weather. Pretty cool considering it can report 13 different weather conditions.

Build your own projection TV

This site has some cool information about building your own projection TV using just
- Cardboard (an old box will do for your first go, but any light but stiff material will do)
- A Fresnel Lens, available from HERE
- Duct tape
- Stanley knife, Ruler, Pencil
- Matt Black Paint
- and a 14inch model tube TV

... don't run out to the Blockbuster to get the LOTR or Star Wars Episode IV DVDs. You know this would barely be meeting low resolution standards.

The rest of the site has other projection tvs which again will allow to see your 1MP photos on the wall.

Howtoons

Interesting site for kids 5-15. Just stumbled upon it so haven't had a chance to really explore it. Here's an excerpt from the site.

Howtoons are one-page cartoons showing 5-to-15 year-old kids "How To" build things. Each illustrated episode is a stand-alone fun adventure accessible to all, including the pre-literate. Our Howtoons are designed to encourage children to be active participants in discovering the world through Play-that-Matters -- fun, creative, and inventive -- and to rely a lot less on mass-consumable entertainment.

Enjoy
