GIANT Tesla Coils at Maker Faire!


Probably the best part about Maker Faire was Arc Attack’s GIANT tesla coils. I didn’t have chance to film the whole thing but above is just a bit of what happened in 1080P HD.

There’s actually a guy in the middle if you look carefully inside some kind of “safe” box, I guess it’s pretty safe to be in there other than the high voltage just screaming about everywhere else.

Cool DIY Bikes at Maker Faire!

As always, they had a bunch of bikes at Maker Faire this year.  My favorites are these two GIANT DIY bikes, they look like they can haul a**.   I would have loved to have ridden them, too bad they were too big.

Also see video of the bike here to see what it really looks like in real life:

Get 35% more MPG on your car with this little device.


Basically this little device produces HHO and feeds it into your fuel line in your car. The HHO is produced by distilled water and baking soda. The only drawback is that you much keep adding the distilled water and baking soda once a week.

This is a very good idea. I’ve heard of water injection systems but this one actually injects HHO.

Looks pretty cool to me, has anyone tried it

It looks like there are hydraulic actuators on it to control all the drum sticks. Anyways, this is cool…

On the site note, I have been slacking on posts lately. We had to move a lot of stuff out of our site which was slowing our site down. We will have them up and running again since we will b
