Fave Instructables of the Week July 9, 2010

Posted by Sindy in Cooking, Favorite Instructables, Weekend Project(s).

I’m Back!!!!! (At least for now)

It’s been a while since there were any Instructables that I just HAD to share, but this week is full of good stuff. So, without further ado, let’s get down to business:

Power Laces
The geeky, Instructables way to tie your shoes – with a motor! It includes pressure sensors so it doesn’t tighten them too much, plus extra buttons in case you want your shoes a little tighter or looser today. It’s also an interested fashion statement and conversation starter.

Rice Krispie Watermelon
Kind of a small watermelon, but then again, you don’t want too much rice krispie treat. Wait, what am I saying? Go ahead and make this super fun giant rice krispie treat that looks like a watermelon into a full watermelon size! (Or bigger ;)) Do me one favor though – make it a yellow watermelon (they do exist) just for me (remember: I’m allergic to red food coloring). šŸ˜‰

Bicycle Sidecar
Aw, the good ol’ classic sidecar. Sadly you don’t see many of those around these days. I must admit, they’re not very comfy, but if you adapt this Instructable it can be very comfy! (Hmmm, imagine one with a built in TV for your passenger.) Of course, this one’s for a bicycle instead of a motorcycle, but hey, I think it would be great fun to make a bicycle that looks like a motorcycle. šŸ™‚

Touchless Lamp
Okay, the title of this one just doesn’t describe it enough. Basically, it’s a lamp where you don’t even have to touch it to turn it on or off (great for those who are health-conscious, or just like cool accessories)! It’s an awesome looking lamp too. Very sleek and modern. The picture above is the lamp (on the lamp) plus some other etch art pieces. I think the ensemble is fantastic!

USB Bike Generator
“Hey honey-bunch, you’re looking a little wider around the middle. Oh, and the cell phones need charged.” Well, it’s your lucky day – take of both in one activity with the USB Bike Generator! As you peddle away the pounds it can charge up to two USB devices! Never run out of battery on your iPod while in that 100 mile race again! Now to find a USB powered TV so I can run the TV off the exercycle. šŸ™‚

Mmm, these look sooooo good! Apparently it’s some sort of fried snack made with mashed potatoes and some other good stuff. I think they’d make a great to-go breakfast.
