Lydon submitted this instant classic after researching the actual size of dynamite sticks. He went with PVC pipe that was a bit smaller so that it was more visually appealing. The PVC is filled with potting soil (that’s a new one!) and sealed with hot glue on the ends.
The Finnish alternative metal band KuuΔelta used the Game Timer Pro as a prop in their new video “Dissolve”. This is a great video and I love the song, too! See the Game Timer Pro in action at about 4:30 in the video. Nice job, KuuΔelta!
Just when I think I’ve seen the best Game Timer Pro build, someone blows me away (no pun intended). View the full-size image, and feast your eyes! Thanks so much, Michael.
Here is a video of this amazing suitcase build.
And this one really is a masterpiece of metal machining! Some details from Michael: The relay was used to activate a 12V, 7 RPM motor that rotated a double helix coil built inside a 6 spoke cage with a driveshaft to rotate it. Additionally the sound was added with a 10W amplified MP3 trigger that activated an SD card programmed with a custom made sound file built in Audacity. A 12W speaker is mounted underneath to supply the theatrical sound effects. The front control panel was machined out of aluminum sheet and the LCD was mounted behind with the keypad. The unit was encassed with clear lexan on the front and back and aluminum sheet on bottom. An LED light strip was used to illuminate the device upon activation from the 12V circuit. Two key switches, LCD lighting, motor, terminals, and flashing circuit complete the build.
Obviously Beppe knows what he is doing. Look at this Italian craftsmanship! He wanted the noise output to be louder so he connected an amplifier and speaker to the external pads for the audio output.
Andrew has sent a picture of his new device named “Ultimatum”. That’s a perfect name for this awesome device, and I don’t want to hear the “or else” part of the ultimatum! The tube has green airsoft BBs and is lit by a green and a white led strip. The circuit boards are from old cell phones and laptops, with wires soldered to them. That’s a great use for old electronic waste — thanks for helping the environment, Andrew!
