…LED Light Drawing Pens are easy to make?

Light Graffiti

Light graffiti is a fun photography style where you set your camera up to take a long exposure at night, and then use a handheld light sources to ‘draw’ in the frame.

The easiest way to create light graffiti is with an LED pen, since they can be made in all sorts of different colors, and the small, very focused light will give you detailed lines without illuminating the rest of the image.

To make your very own set of LED Light Drawing Pens, check out Instructables, where they’ve posted a guide that will turn some plastic tubing, an LED, and rudimentary wiring into a LED pen in no time.

…Your office chair is a tattletale?

Twitter Office Chair

Many people are still unsure of the value of Twitter, but if there’s one thing that will convince the masses it’s this: An office chair that tweets when you toot.

The Twittering Office Chair is a… unique project that uses a standard office chair and a bunch of fancy electronics to detect the presence of flatulence, and then tweet wirelessly whenever it sense a stinker.

The chair was made to help accurately document life as it happens, and thankfully, if you want to make one of your own, there’s a full set of instructions on Instructables for you to follow.

…Candy vodka needs gummy shot glasses?

Gummy Shot Glasses

Sure, you’ve made a gallon of Skittles Flavored Vodka, and you’ve even managed to make it taste all right, but you don’t just want to drink that creation out of a plain old shot glass now, do you?

If you’re looking to keep the quirky booze theme going, then how about edible gummy shot glasses?

Thankfully, Instructables has put together a set of instructions for creating such concoctions, and since it basically involves little more than microwaving gummy worms and then adding the goop to a silicone mold, you’ll be drinking out of a gummy glass in no time!

Just remember to count your drinks though before chowing down, because gummy/candy hangovers are the worst!

…Your alarm can be deadly?

Phaser Blasted Alarm Clock

Have you ever just wanted to shoot your alarm in the morning and go back to bed?

(Or perhaps the better question is, have you ever NOT wanted to shoot your alarm in the morning and go back to bed?)

Well now you can, thanks to a clever bit of electronic hacking and modification.

The Phaser Blasted Alarm Clock uses a gaming gun to shoot the alarm to sleep, and also integrates a tilt sensor so that you can change the time and set the alarm using just the gun itself.
