New Product: Hurt Locker (Defusable Bomb) Kit  Time to be a hero! 

As one of the DFRobot classics, the Hurt Locker Kit allows you to make a scary looking time bomb that you can actually "defuse" with wisdom and courage. It is based on Arduino and is very fun to play, especially in festivals and gatherings. 

After assembly, press the start button and then you will see two colors flicker in sequence. Do not forget them and quickly look up the third color with the color sheet in your hand. Remember you've got only 15s! There are 6 colored wires across the top of the bomb and you have two attempts to get rid of the correct wire. If you fail, things will end up in a loud blow (balloon).

No soldering is required with this kit, our intuitive user manual will guide you effortlessly with assembly. Only few minutes and you are ready to take the challenge!

OK Makers, we tried this before and got some great responses from you.  Lets try this again.
 
Lets see how many correct answers we can get to this question: What are some examples of applications that use left-handed threads?  In other words...where does "lefty-loosey, righty-tighty" NOT apply?

Some older British cars has left hand threads on various parts of the car, for example I had a 64 Triumph Spitfire having some.

I'm working on a game called Contraption Maker. It's a game that lets you make ridiculous Rube Goldberg type chain reactions. Our community has made all sorts of awesome things like ball sorters and 8-bit counters.

This game is a spiritual successor to an old PC game called The Incredible Machine, and it's being made by the same guys.

The game is currently available on Steam http://store.steampowered.com/app/241240

#BeagleSNES  is my port of the SNES9X Super Nintendo emulator to the BeagleBoard-xM and BeagleBone Black ARM SBCs.  My goal is to turn these boards into a stand-alone appliance/console, so there is quite a bit more to it than just the emulator itself.  While the RPi has its share of emulators, the extra processing power of the BBB target really brings some of the old SNES games to life in a way that the RPi can't manage.  

I've been developing this software for over a year now, and the latest version has added in GPIO input support on the BBB target so that you can use the BeagleSNES to develop your own handheld game consoles or custom controllers. The prebuilt images of BeagleSNES are 4GB images that can be copied onto a microSD card.  Flash the prebuilt image to the microSD and you're ready to get started.  Source code for the bootloader, kernel, and emulator/GUI are all available for download, and there is also a (pretty detailed) manual that describes how to set the system up and how all the parts and pieces of it work.

Get a color-changing (rgb) for added fun. And less stereotyping! It is a cute and cleanly done project though.

Key West’s Minimal Regatta:
Each team to build a boat out of a four-by-eight sheet of plywood, two eight-foot-long two-by fours, a roll of duct tape, A POUND OF #FASTENERS and epoxy paint.
Does your city do anything similar?
