DIY – How to Make an Oil Detector!

This probably ain’t going to save you money in terms of paying for the gas on your car but heck, this is a fun DIY that shows you how to make an oil detector and try to “detect” oil pockets in your neighborhood.

Styrofoam Homes could be the future!

It looks like styrofoam could be used for making future homes as they provide a flexible enough structure to hold up against earthquakes while being strong enough to encase a dome.

Heck, I would want one too so long as peeping Tom’s don’t live in my neighborhood.

Well, here’s a wifi antenna you can make that can do 18MB at 300 yards.

Now here’s a way to get some free wifi from your neighborhood, that is if you live in a metropolitan area AND you have a window to high-rise apartments.

This antenna performs better than the dish antenna I had built, so I’m happy with it. And maybe the world is a better place now that I’m not weilding a truly Buck Rodgers death-ray of an antenna!
