I had a great time at RedBull Creation contest this year. While I would have loved to have been in the contest (see my qualifier here), being the head judge was still a fantastic experience. I will be doing some write ups of the projects coming soon, but until then check out the qualifiers and videos below.
Here’s a playlist with all of the initial submissions from the contest.
This coming weekend teams of Makers, Artists, Students, Programmers, Problem-Solvers, Designers, Performers, Filmmakers (and many others) from around the globe will gather, physically and digitally, to “deconstruct” the world around them. Their common goal: rethink existing objects, genres, and ideas…and create something new.
I am running a team at the Dallas Makerspace, so if you are in Dallas and would like to join you are more then welcome to come over. If you just want to watch the fun from home we will be live streaming/blogging right here, so stay tuned.
These events always have fun results such as the Dizzy Fling, so come and be part of the innovation.
As a maker I have always wanted to see the ultimate source for all the creative builds and hacks that people come up with. There are lots of specialized blogs out there for different topics but not one that encompasses the maker lifestyle. I decided it was time to setup my own blog and remembered about Build Lounge (a blog I used to visit often for that same purpose). Some time ago the founder of www.buldlounge.com stopped updating the site and took it off line. A while ago I reached out and purchased the domain and old content , and would like to keep this site going for the builder/maker/hacker everywhere.
So welcome back to the new buildlounge.com
In addition to picking up where it was left off, I would like to grow it bigger and transform it into the main source of information for Builders everywhere.
So watch this site for more fun contests (with prizes), news, and interesting projects from all genres.

Imagine for a moment, a world where your joking finger-pistols actually made pistol noises. Your falcon punch sounded… well, falcon-punchy. This world is now a reality! Using an Arduino, a Wave shield, and assorted fasteners, foils, and fabrics, you too can live this dream come true.
You can see in the video that it could possibly use a little more umph in the speaker department, but it is fun nonetheless. They should go on to add a “cocking” action as well. I think that would really complete the project. Wait, did someone say Haidouken?
