Here is a simple idea for a bookshelf made out of pipe I made for less $100. It's not super functional but it's made of steel and has LEDs so that makes it cool.

Hey internet friends. This is a video/research project about how to build a Pinewood Derby car that will crush the competition with the LEAST AMOUNT of effort by using Science (mine took 45 minutes to build). I apologize that it's been awhile but I've got some really cool stuff coming down the pipeline I've been working on in parallel so stay tuned.

I had the weights set at that exact spot on my car back when I was in scouts, a last minute entry which was heavier than my car with weights in the exact spot (but on the sides and a bit in the center he had to take weight off before he could race me, my weights was under my car because my car had a lifted bottom in its design) anyways long story short I had beat everyone I was the first place then the last minute man beat me. Still have the car and 2nd place trophy till this day.

As a NASA engineer the question people asked me most was whether we had evidence of aliens and we were holding it back.  Answer is no.  Having said that I think I agree with Stephen Hawking and if they ever do make contact with us chances are pretty good they would be interested in our natural resources and they wouldn't have much need for us (e.g. it doesn't end well unless Will Smith brings his A-game)

+Chris Dioguardi Happy New Year! I agree with every word that you said. I rather keep an open mind than to be shut off to new knowledge.

Did you try using a counter weight setup for the camera? (to balance the mass in circular movement) Or are the forces just too much for the camera itself to handle?

I was just thinking that if you could actually spin the camera itself around the object by attaching a camera and a counterweight in the opposite ends of a "stick" and then finding the center of gravity. Then you could just hang it down from a frame with a motor or something like that. Focus and quality would probably be better.

Went back to NASA/JPL yesterday to be a judge for our Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. One of my favorite things in life is totally overkilling a problem with Engineering... and there is no better example of this than our annual pumpkin carving contest.

Here is how to freeze time with a single High Speed camera at 7200fps and an insane rig built by NASA engineers.
