If you got or heard of the Ant Farm and think they are cool how about an Ant Desk? A desk creeping with ants or other bugs if you so desire.
"How does it work? It begins with a thick layer of glass or clear plastic. This protects you from the ants, and protects the ants from you. Below the glass is an open space with a thick layer of dirt, allowing the ants to crawl in, out, and around their tunnels, caves, and hills. This all rests on top of a sturdy base layer, which doubles as the bottom of the desktop. Small holes around the sides of the desk provide air, while being too small for the ants to escape"
Food and water can be regulary inserted through feeding portals and these ants will life happily for quite a long time. Of course, it does help that ants don't poo & pee! > Read more
So, you missed the auction for the Flux Capacitor at eBay. Big deal! How about if we tell you how to make one for yourself? For the un-initiated the 'flux capacitor' is what powers the time machine circuit in the movie 'Back to the Future' and has the same status for us geeks like the Starship Enterprise from StarTrek.
Here's what you will need to build the Flux Capacitor for yourself:
A fuse box (small)
14x14" piece of 1/4 inch Lexan (plexiglass)
Silicone caulk, black
90 second epoxy
6 ft rope light
Red tape for label punch
14x14 piece of Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)
Can of black spray paint
Skil saw (jig saw)
The complete plans and instructions are here. The best part of building your own flux capacitor? you won't need 1.21 Jigawatts to power it!. The idea is the brainwave of Cory Q, a self-confessed monkey fanatic. Dude, you are the geek!
This one goes with all the other interesting Remote Control Toys we have featured earlier. This Radio Remote controlled 2' long shark from Discovery channel swims like a real one and dives up to 9' deep with a propeller built into the shark's tail.
The remote control has a range of 40' and moves the shark left, right, up, foward, down or even reverse, and can be used underwater as well. The Remote Control Shark includes a battery and a battery charger.
Pretty cool, but don't expect anyone to get scared. Available from here for US$ 79.95.
If you think owning remote control planes and helicopters is cool, hold your breath and see this. These remote control jets powered by miniature jet turbine engines can fly for 15 minutes at speeds of 243 mph (they can fly faster, but are limited by FAA regulations) at a stretch. Click on play to see the video.
If you want one of them be prepared to shell over $10,000 a piece. We are just sooo jealous.
