…You are not worthy of TGIMBOEJ?

Great Internet Migratory Box of Electronics Junk

Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories’ Great Internet Migratory Box of Electronics Junk is a fascinating project in which a progressive lending library of electronic components becomes an internet meme in physical form halfway between P2P zip-archive sharing and a flea market.

Recipients of the box must:

  1. Take out and add as much electronics junk as you like (but keep it small enough to fit in a USPS flat-rate Priority Mail box).
  2. Write up, photograph, document or otherwise publish in some way online at least one thing you took out (suggested flickr tag: TGIMBOEJ).
  3. There is a little book in the box. Add a checkmark by your name to show that the box has been to you. Also propose a future recipient by adding their name and e-mail address to the book.
  4. Within two weeks pass the box along to one of the people whose name is in the book. Before mailing it to them, send them this list and make sure that they want to participate.

The goal is not necessarily to get anything of value from the box, but instead, to appreciate the box’s journey, and find some way to contribute to the overall story that the box represents.

…BristleBots are part of a controversy?

BristleBots

Remember BristleBots, the tiny little ‘robots’ that use little more than a pager motor, a battery and a toothbrush head to create locomotion?

Well apparently, Klutz and Scholastic claim to have thought of the exact same idea with the exact same name at the exact same time as Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, and are making a book with the bots without giving credit to the original inventors.

It’s still up in the air as to what will happen with this whole situation, and you can follow the updates on the MAKE: Blog, but hopefully this will all get resolved in the right way, and credit will be given where credit is due.

…You can eat googly eyes?

Edible Flying Spaghetti Monster

After more than a year of “painstaking directed research” by their Experimental Foods Division, Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories has figured out how to make 100% edible googly eyes.

The formula is a mixture of gelatin capsules, sprinkles, and whoppers, and the end result are eyes that are perfect for your food face of choice. Plus, by adding the eyes to a mixture of noodles and marshmallows, they have also created a wonderfully delicious looking version of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

What will you make with yours?
