Two brothers have built a human catapult to fly into a lake. Johannes Schrieber, and his brother Daniel, from Frankfurt, Germany built the wooden contraption, which can fire people five metres into the sky and 12 metres away. The brothers raised more than £700 through crowdfunding to buy the materials, with every penny well spent as nobody has died yet!

How To Build a Gingerbread AT-AT Walker

‘Tis the season for Disney space operas, and while doing relevant “research” I discovered this vitally useful how-to for a gingerbread AT-AT. While considerably smaller than the homemade AT-ATC from earlier this month, this one is better for most budgets and attention spans and you can eat it. Plus it won’t take up your whole back yard unless you throw it out there after forgetting to eat it for a month.

This sweet take on the best armored vehicle ever invented was made by Youtuber CakesByChoppA. It uses his free templates and recipes he links. The leg design seems to require a good bit of frosting glue, but it looks better than any of the others I’ve seen and it would be fun as hell to customize. I got a little irritable at the use of totally non-canon sprinkle joints, but the end result is rad enough to give me a craving for black licorice and the original trilogy.

Build Your Own Hot Wire Cutter

Here’s a fun project for the long holiday weekend via our discussion boards! Core77er gmay3able recently shared a clever creation of his with our fellow readers much to our delight: a DIY hot wire foam cutter table. 

Check out his sketches and process photos below—

The original sketch
The wire is hooked up to a power supply, as gmay3able writes, “from those red and black terminals on the guitar tuners. Those are ‘banana jacks’ and I’m using banana leads that are connected to a variable bench top DC power supply.”
Hot wire demo

gmay3able writes:

“I wanted to share the process because it’s a really easy weekend project and it cut through 5 layers of glued together foam sheets like butter! You’ll end up with a powerful tool that will help speed up your foam modeling. This version can cut make cuts up to 28″ tall and 16″ wide but you can adjust it to be as large as you want. You can cut horizontally or vertically, it’s easily adjustable with the corner clamp on the arm that holds the wire, and the hole thing breaks down and fits in the base.

I hope the pictures give more detail on how it works but feel free to ask any questions!”

If you want to take a look at full documentation of the project or ask more questions about how it’s made, write your questions below or on the original discussion board

Paint 3D is now a part of the Microsoft’s Creators Update test build

3d-paint-surface-pen You know you’ve been wanting to play around with that new version of Microsoft Paint — if only to see if it is, indeed, that big of an update to the long-maligned drawing application that’s been shipping with Windows since the mid-1980s. Paint 3D is unquestionably one of the biggest refreshes in the application’s history. In fact, it’s really a complete rethink,… Read More
