It’s been a very long while since we shared a good pinhole camera tutorial and Ondrej Revicky just made it better by sharing the pattern and instructions for building a character-full pinhole camera called TEFAU. Tefau is 100% made of paper that you can make by downloading this PDF and printing it on somewhat heavy paper. Ondrej explains [...]

Hi everyone!
I got a problem and i hope some of you guys can help me.
I got a prototyping board like UDOO(or something like that) and a firewire camera(360 camera). I need to record videos on the UDOO using that camera even though UDOO got no Firewire port. What can i do?

Help me think about the language of making and select some different words to use (besides maker and makerspace - they don't communicate what I would like to people outside of maker culture) in the context of higher education.

Ciao e ben ritrovato sul blog "Aspettando il bus". Oggi approfitto di alcune email ricevute, che riguardavano l'uso del nunchuk con Arduino UNO R3, per parlare dei circuiti alimentati a 3,3 volt. In rete si trovano molti esem...

Great Idea! I am a tech & Eng. teacher and used to teach how computers worked. Might do this with my club.

I'm working on a prosthetic hand for a girl called Hollie. It's in the same vein as the E-nable hands except I'm trying to make it as life like as possible.

The video shows a couple of scans I made from plaster casts of her hands using photogammetry. The original white cast isn't very good for scanning so I added a layer of light grey paint to it, so help bring out the contrast. I then added a very watered down black paint which collected in all the grooves of the model. I then took about 50+ images of both casts and used Agisoft photoscan to make the 3D models. 

What you see in the video are the scans meshed and textured in photoscan. The rendering is then done in Blender Cycles.

More information about the project and what my current prototype designs look like can be found at

Woah! Check out Steve M.'s build! This thing is awesome! Can't wait to see the finished product and hopefully a build log on it!

His idea is an 1/8 scale TF using traxxas tires and front spindles for looks, and 3D printing an engine block, roll cage, and body. Mamba 2 ESC with a 1515-2650 motor on 6S geared 4:1. Just to name a few of its descriptions! This is going to be awesome!

I'm hoping that is an effect from the panorama photo process.  That curve would show in the other pictures if it was in the chassis.

The bathroom cabinet I made a while ago.  I think it qualify as #maker ;)  The top, we got for free, it is a tile from a display at our local tile shop.  It cost R 120 to cut it.  The basin and tap was on special.

The top and middle drawer needed to accommodate the water and drain pipes.  The top drawer is shallower and is designed specifically as a toilet paper drawer.  The other two drawers are deep.

My son was prematurely born and thus is a little bit short. So I made the step (with legs) for him.  The white speckles is toothpaste (the joy of having kids in the house).

I wanted to bolt the cabinet to the wall (before the legs solution), because the lever effect tips the cabinet over when my son stands on the step.  I gauge where the water pipes in the wall are and drilled the first hole. Guess what, I hit the pipe dead centre!  My son came into the flooded bathroom and asked me why I didn't use my x-ray vision, the x-rays vision I use to see when he is naughty in his room, to see where the pipes was. :s

I will one day replace the top with marble, and move the tap closer. Currently it splashes against the wall if your hands aren't below the rim of the basin.  

The wood is Meranti and it is mostly glued.  (Only the inside of the drawers and the runners are nailed or screwed together)
