Real life Mac Gyverisms and more.


Playing with fire and light

Last week I was at the M’era Luna festival in Hildesheim, Germany and I got to see next to awesome acts like Marylin Manson some Fire Dancers at the medival market that is set up there each year.

I use a relatively simple camera. It’s a Nikon Coolpix S3100.

All I did was turn the stabilizer on, turned the flash off and deactivated the macro mode.

I was quite impressed with the results. See for yourself.


I F***ing love Sugru :D

Yep I just cannot emphasize enough just exactly how brilliant Sugru is.

It feels, handles and shapes its-self just like play dough. But when it has cured, it has all the awesome properties of rubber.

Just when you think you have run out of ideas, you find something else that can be fixed with it.

So here are just a few of the things i used Sugru for.

Antenna seal

There seem to be no limits. ๐Ÿ˜€

Rubber feet

None at all. ^^


Custom sink plug

These things seem to be in fashion right now.


But I want something no one else has ๐Ÿ˜‰

And there you have it.
Just need the paint to dry ๐Ÿ˜€



So I went to Ikea today and saw this Picture.


I saw three distinct elements. A typewriter, red letters and a manuscript page.


Being a fan of Stanley Kubricks films and Steven Kings Novels one thing led to another.

And in the end I had THIS neat fanart ๐Ÿ™‚

How do you like it? :D

How do you like it? ๐Ÿ˜€

Things you find in a second-hand store

If you are a maker like me, second-hand stores (or thrift stores as they are known in the U.S.) can be the perfect place to find just the right thing for your next project.
Tools, materials, devices equipment etc.

But sometimes you come across something scientific.
Something so nerdy and awesome that you buy it on the spot just to have it around.

Besides. You’ll probably only get one chance in your life to ever say:

“I bought a piece of Space Shuttle heat shield for one Euro”

Here are some images to back me up. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My living room spotlight

You may not be able to build Rome in a day.
But how about a spotlight made from this? ๐Ÿ˜‰


Why a spotlight?
So it doesn’t disturb my projector too much ๐Ÿ˜€
