How to Make a Resin-Based Color-Changing DIY Door Handle!

diy-color-changing-led-doorhandle-3

Using layers of resin and a strip of color-changing RGB LEDs, folks at OvniLab.com have created a magnificent-looking door handle that looks very modern and would be more suited for a nightclub as it’s that awesome-lookin’.

The process seems pretty simple enough, make a resin-based door handle, stick a color-changing RGB LEDs on the back of the handle. But you have to give credit, this is a really great idea, thanks to the creators. I will have to definitely put this on my priority list of DIY projects for the future.

TSA Closes Terminals Over a DIY Mint Tin Project!

tsa-idiots

TSA recently closed one of its terminals due to a bomb threat (or so they thought it was) and calls in the bomb squad and the FBI.   Of course, this wasn’t actually a bomb but a DIY mint tin project.

The Omaha Police Department’s bomb squad was called after a suspicious-looking item was found in a carry-on bag shortly before noon at the airport’s north checkpoint in Terminal B.

Screening operations were suspended, and the B concourse was evacuated. Operations were not disrupted in Terminal A, according to a Transportation Security Administration official.

Apple Sues Motorola Next!

apple-sues-motorola-xoom

Apple’s next target after Samsung? Motorola, Motorola’s latest 10.1-inch Android tablet has been deemed to have copied Apple’s iPad designs.

Come on! That is ridiculous. At least suing Samsung for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 made some kind of sense as its lighter and slimmer than iPad but suing Motorola for the Xoom tablet which does not look anywhere near an iPad???

Clearly, Apple has hired some dumb-nut lawyers to do their job of trying to take down Android via proxy companies like Samsung and Motorola. And no, there’s absolutely no clear reason

Here’s an incredible hacking machine of the decade you will ever see, it’s a 14-pound, six-foot long, six-foot wingspan unmanned aerial vehicle built by Mike Tassey and Richard Perkins that can crack WiFi while flying in air and also intercept GSM calls from carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T.

There are some home appliances you simply can’t buy (way too expensive) but you can make them yourself using a PID controller.

What is a PID controller?

Langlee Wave Energy to Power Converter!

langlee-wave-power

Back in 2009, we did go over the Oyster Wave Energy Converter, here’s another good candidate for converting ocean waves into energy.

Imagine this, earth is made up mostly of water and even if we utilized a small number of the raw power from waves, we could essentially power the whole earth! The only problem? The cost to make these wave energy converters. At first, it’s going to be billions of dollars but in the long run wave energy could be powering everything at cost of almost

iOS5 Beta 5 Gets Jailbreak!

ios-5-beta-jailbreak

iOS5 Beta 5 finally gets jailbroken, of course this isn’t a full jailbreak rather a “tethered” jailbreak meant for jailbroken app developers. For all of you interested in early-adoption of the jailbreak, check out the Dev Team Blog.

THIS IS A TETHERED JAILBREAK ONLY! No new exploits are being exposed with this jailbreak (it uses geohot’s limera1n bootrom exploit), but that comes at a cost. You will need to use redsn0w to “Just boot tethered now” to be able to use many things, in
