How to make a decorative, and completely edible, apple swan! I made a few modifications to the original idea, to get the effect you see here.

I also found http://youtu.be/FNXmuakUi4M to help refresh my memory, and then made a few of my own changes to make the swan look better and more attractive. I got the inspiration for using seeds as eyes in this video: http://youtu.be/jg6sWO3z0BQ Project History & More Info: I remembered someone showing me how to make an apple into a swan while I was in England in 2001. I can't remember who it was though, and I just remember that it was a nice try, and although the wings looked cool, and head and neck were terrible. I really liked the idea though, so I spent an entire day cutting up apples in different ways to see if I could make it better. I also saw a video online where someone used apple seeds to make eyes (http://youtu.be/jg6sWO3z0BQ) which was really awesome, so I tried to incorporate that in. I ended up with this method for making the apple swan, which I think really looks incredible, and we ended up putting them on display for some dinner guests we had that night.

How To Make Magic Mud - From a Potato!
 
03:49
It's mind-blowing to think this stuff is in our food! Here's how to make a glowing "magical mud" from ordinary potatoes. Because of the popularity of this project, I've put together a detailed 15 page PDF (http://bit.ly/MagicMudProjectPDF) with step-by-step instructions, Fun Facts, Helpful Hints, and loaded with pictures. I'm selling them to help compensate for my time.

Music By: http://www.machinimasound.com (Dust Sucker) Project Inspired By: A pots and pans sales presentation. They peeled some potatoes to make us dinner, and I noticed the white residue at the bottom of the dish and asked if I could take it home. Project History & More Info: When I realized that potatoes could be chopped up and soaked to leach out the starch, of course the first thing I thought of was making oobleck. My mind was blown when I experimented with this process, and realized the starch would collect at the bottom of the dish, and would stay in place when the water and impurities were poured out. After only a couple of rinses, it's amazing to see how pure the starch powder can be. It looks exactly like cornstarch that could be purchased at the store. I was familiar with the idea of making tonic water glow under UV light, so wondered how it would would mix with the starch powder. The result was very gratifying!

How To Turn Styrofoam, Into Solid Aluminum
 
02:29
Here's how to turn almost any styrofoam creation you can think up, into solid aluminum. It's almost like magic! :) Common materials in the Mini Metal Foundry [✓] Clay Graphite Crucible: http://amzn.to/2bZ2ESu [✓] Steel Pail: http://amzn.to/2bSuGAC [✓] Plaster of Paris: http://amzn.to/2bZ0cf0 [✓] 2.5 Quart Bucket: http://amzn.to/2c0l3gk [✓] 5 Quart Big Mouth Bucket: http://amzn.to/2bSvyoz [✓] Heat Resistant Gloves: http://amzn.to/2bSv02d [✓] 1-3/8” Hole Saw: http://amzn.to/2bSvo0z [✓] 3” Hole Saw: http://amzn.to/2cib3kQ [✓] 1” x 12” Steel Pipe: http://amzn.to/2cu3uGU Endcard Links: Projects: http://bit.ly/PLWeekendProjects Experiments: http://bit.ly/PLExperiments Life Hacks: http://bit.ly/PLLifeHacks Mad Science: http://bit.ly/PLMadScience See What Else I’m Up To: Instagram: https://goo.gl/C0Q1YU Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBTheKingOfRandom Pinterest: http://bit.ly/pingrant Business Inquiries: For business and sponsorship inquiries please contact us directly: http://www.youtube.com/thekingofrandom/about WARNING: Charcoal foundries can reach temperatures in excess of 1,000ºC, which is well above the melting point of hobbyists. This project should only be attempted with adequate knowledge and training, proper protective safety gear, and in a fire resistant area with adequate ventilation. The sparks flying from the foundry can ignite fires, and the fumes from burning dross can be toxic. Use caution and common sense. Be safe and have fun, but always remember that any project or experiment is at your own risk. Music By: Jens Kiilstofte - “Morning Cruise” https://machinimasound.com/music/morning-cruise Project Inspired By: This project was inspired by 2 videos. If you check them out, please let them know that Grant Thompson sent you. Thanks! :) First was a “lost foam casting” tutorial by “The Art of Weapons” (http://bit.ly/IBRamboneSlingshot) and a Rubber Band gun designed by “RBGuns” (http://bit.ly/IBM9RubberBandGun). I modified the template from RBGuns to make the styrofoam mold. Project History & More Info: The gun is solid aluminum, made from melted down soda cans. I spent over 100 hours of time, and 7 styrofoam prototypes to make this video. About a third of the time was spent filing and sanding the gun. Each time I poured a casting for the gun, the trigger guard wouldn’t complete all the way through, so I kept making new styrofoam guns, modifying the designs slightly until it worked. Once I got a fairly clean casting, I put 2 days into filing down rough points, and sanding them smooth. The gun could use a little more work, and it’s not perfect, but this experiment was mainly a proof of concept that nearly anything you can imagine can be made fairly easily with the “lost foam casting” technique. Overall, I really am happy with the gun though! It weighs 556 grams, and is really quite smooth to feel. For future projects, I plan to work more with green sand casting. I believe it will leave a nicer finish overall and won’t require as many prototypes to get it right :) Instead of foam, wood plugs can be used to make the molds, or even real weapons for that matter.

Self Freezing Coca-Cola (The trick that works on any soda!)
 
03:18
Take any bottle of soda, and get it to freeze on command! This “super cool" trick works with cans of soda as well. Some quick links to a few of the materials I used: [✓] Coke: http://amzn.to/2cjDmmt [✓] Quaich (little silver dish from Scotland) :http://amzn.to/2cGNxy3 To date, I haven't seen any tutorials on exactly how to get this "self-freezing coke" effect, so I'm excited to release this video in response to thousands of viewer requests.

Glass bottles are not recommended, as the ice expands when freezing and can shatter the glass explosively. Use of video content is at own risk. Music By: http://www.MachinimaSound.com (Remember The Dreams) Project Inspired By: The viral YouTube video: "How to Chill A Coke In just a second!!" (http://youtu.be/ngt74e1DxPU) and the process of nucleation was inspired by "Self-Freezing Coke - Crazy from Kong!" http://youtu.be/j07SweYJTSM. Project History & More Info: I knew water could be turned to instant ice (http://youtu.be/sQdLttUh_b0), but was amazed to see that soda could be supercooled as well. The anomaly of "self freezing soda" has been observed by many people, usually by accident. Some people put a soda in the freezer to chill it, but then forget about it. When they've remembered and gone to get it, it's liquid until they open it, leaving them puzzled. Some people have noticed the effect by leaving the soda outside in cold temperatures. There is a vending machine in Hong Kong that sells supercooled Coke bottles, and the instructions to trigger nucleation is the same as in this video, however they recommend taking a sip when the cap is on. I believe this is to increase the chances of impurities being introduced into the liquid, making nucleation more likely. From what I've seen, the results in this experiment form an even thicker slush than the vending machine in Hong Kong. To get this effect, I put 4 bottles of 500mL (16.9 oz) soda in a freezer set at -24ºC (-11ºF) between 3:15- 4:00 hours. The longer they are in, the more dramatic and solid the slushy freeze will be. However, anytime after 3:15 hours there is a chance of them freezing before you take them out. Every freezer will be a little different temperature, and I've noticed the location of your bottles in the freezer makes a dramatic difference on freeze times. For best results, choose one consistent location in your freezer, and play around with freeze times to see what works best for you. In my freezer, the middle of the center rack settles at -24ºC (-11ºF) and takes 3:15 to super chill 4 bottles. Remember that the longer the freezer door is open, the more cold air will escape, and it will make your freeze times take much longer because your freezer has to cool down again. I've also noticed that the more frozen items you have in your freezer, the faster your soda will chill. In contrast, the less items in your freezer, the longer your soda will take to cool. Bottom line is, use a consistent environment for your experiments, and you'll get consistent results! I also experimented with 2 litter bottles, and had great results between 4-5 hours. The whole bottle slushifies in an instant. I experimented with Gatorade, Fresca, Mexican Sprite, Rootbeer, Orange sodas, Coke, Diet Coke, in bottle form, as well as in cans. I had super cooled success with them all! The trick to getting the 3 second slush, is quickly releasing the pressure in the bottle and re-securing the cap, flipping the bottle upside down, and back upright again. This is because the forming ice crystals will be moved around the length of the bottle, and trigger nucleation for the rest of the soda. If you were to just take the cap off, ice will form, and it will slowly spread downward, but might take upwards of 2 minutes for the bottle to completely freeze. Removing the pressure very slowly from the bottle, can keep the soda liquified, and give you the choice opportunity to play with supercooled soda outside of the bottle.

I started off trying silicone caulk from the hardware store, but globs of it would take weeks and weeks to finally firm up. That wasn't acceptable because I needed something that would harden in 24 hours or less. About 3 years ago I came across an Instructable by Mikey77 showing that mixing corn starch into the silicone caulk could be used to make it firm up in under an hour. I did a number of experiments of my own, and eventually found out that corn starch wasn't actually needed at all, but that all you needed was to add a little food coloring. I still like to use corn starch though because it helps prevent the caulk from sticking to my hands as I work with it. The stuff is really hard to get off if it sticks to skin!

How To Make LEGO Gummy Candy!

If you rely on the information portrayed in this video, you assume the responsibility for the results. Have fun, but always think ahead, and remember that every project you try is at YOUR OWN RISK. Music By: Scott & Brendo “Somewhere” http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes See their YouTube page: http://bit.ly/YTScottDW Project Inspired By: SFHandyman's Instructable article: http://bit.ly/IBSFHandyman Project History & More Info: Who doesn't love gummy candy, and who doesn't love LEGO? 5 years ago I was fascinated with it, wondering how it was made, and what gave it its gummy texture. It feels so good on the teeth to bite into it, and my kids go crazy for them .. so I spent a bit of time researching how they're made commercially. My biggest motivation for doing this was to see if we could make our own at home, and I'm actually still trying to figure out how to make gelatin and corn syrup from scratch, so if I can figure out how to do that, maybe I'll show how to do it in another project video. Only a small handful of you have ever seen the LEGO Gummy video I made in 2010, and that's because it was nearly 5 years ago, before I really got serious about making videos. I took it off my channel in 2012 because I had full intentions of making a better version, so here it is .. 3 years later! :) Now I wanted to make candies that made people look twice, and LEGO bricks instantly came to mind because what's more awesome than LEGO and gummy put together? But I wasn't sure where could you get a mold for making LEGO bricks. Surfing around the internet, I stumbled across an awesome Instructable by SFHandyman: http://bit.ly/IBSFHandyman To my amazement, not only had he shown how to make a mold for making LEGO candy, he also made LEGO gummies as well! I played around with loads of variations in recipes to see what texture and tastes I liked the best. And I've kept experimenting off and on for the last 4 years, using my kids and wife for feedback. They gobble them up no matter what variations I use, but I've finally settled on 1/2 cup of very cold water, 1/4 cup of corn syrup, 2 packets of unflavored gelatin, and 1 pack of Jell-O. I've found that the corn syrup seems to help smooth out the texture and the taste. If you try making this recipe, it's very important to start the gelatin in cold water. Stir it up, then let it sit for 5 minutes before you turn on the heat. Otherwise, you'll get gobby clumps of undissolved gelatin in your syrup that doesn't look very appetizing. I originally made my silicone mold with a 2 part mix from a special effects supply company. I used real LEGO bricks set on a LEGO base, and built a makeshift retaining wall with bricks and play-dough. I don't plan to make a tutorial on how to make the mold, but I want to do a video on how to make a silicone mold in general. It's amazing to see how much detail the silicone can transfer to the final gummy products. If you look closely at my candies you can even see the little “LEGO” text on top of the gummy LEGO studs. To make sour gummies, we often add citric acid. They are incredible! But if you don't have citric acid, try taking SFHandyman's suggestion and add vitamin C. The citric and ascorbic acids in the vitamins sour them the same way, which actually makes them taste just as great, and enriches them with vitamin C as well.

Music By: Jason Shaw (RP-KickedUpPumps) http://www.audionautix.com Project Inspired By: jasonklass http://youtu.be/r7uLVGrAt1M Project History & More Info: Char cloth is a fabric, like 100% cotton, that has been converted into a slow-burning fuel that can ignite at very low temperatures. The process of cooking the fabric, without burning it, is called pyrolysys. During pyrolysys, gasses such as hydrogen and methane are released from the fabric, and can be ignited and burned. The process of making char cloth is very similar to making wood gas, and the gas released can be captured and burned as fuel. Char cloth can be ignited by a single spark, that can in turn be used to ignite a tinder bundle to start a fire. Sometimes it's difficult to ignite tinder directly, and char cloth provides a means that makes the process extremely simple.

Music By: Scott & Brendo (“Kitten Air” - Instrumental) http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project Inspired By: My 5 year old son. He pulled a piece of PVC pipe out of the garbage and asked if we could make a project with it. A blowgun was the first idea that came to mind, and quickly snowballed into a really awesome project idea! Project History & More Info: This is an original project idea which came right out of the blue a couple of weeks ago, but is among my favorites already! The blowgun is so simple and cheap to make, anyone can do it, and the best part is it looks completely legit, and can fire with amazing precision. When my 5 year old son pulled a piece of plastic pipe out of the garbage and asked if we could do a project I immediately thought of making a blow dart gun. But to make it safer for indoor use, I tried using paper for ammunition. I rolled up a post-it note, and shoved the tip of a crayon inside to add some weight. When we shot the dart, it flew over 100 feet away at high velocity, making me realize there is a real project here waiting to be developed. I spent the next 5 days evolving different prototypes, and experimenting with different types of homemade ammunition. I let my kids try shooting darts made with nails, but their lungs weren't powerful enough to get the darts to stick into targets, so we use marshmallows instead. The pipe is the perfect width for mini-marshmallows and can still shoot them fast enough to hurt a little, but still safe enough for indoor use. The blowguns can be customized with different color schemes in a way that's so simple it's nearly mind blowing. Many people have asked how to make the precision laser sight. It's just a 2" piece of the same PVC pipe, with 8 screws, as seen in the video. Simply insert the laser, and adjust the screws until the laser is pointing directly at the place where the blowgun hits the target, then make sure the screws are relatively tight so the laser doesn't move.  Have fun and good luck!

I tested different refractory recipes, different containers, different setting for blowing air, and different types of makeshift crucibles. I tried various ratios of portland cement, sand, perlite, plaster of paris, water, and even kitty litter. For containers, I experimented with clay pots, plastic buckets, no container, cinderblocks, and a galvanized steel pail. I ended up favoring the galvanized steel pail, and a mix of 50% plaster of paris, and 50% play sand, by volume, which was inspired by a video by NightHawkInLight "How to Make a Soup Can Forge" http://bit.ly/IBSoupCanForge Depending on where you get, or find, your materials the cost can range anywhere from $5-$25 per unit. With the materials I used, I was able to make 2 units for under $40 ($20 each). Even on the high end, this is probably one of the cheapest, reliable, backyard foundries that can be made. I used mine to melt soda cans, and extract the aluminum for future metal casting projects. All the soda cans came from a local recycling depot. I bought back 30 lbs from the depot to avoid having to drink gallons and gallons of soda. :) I stored the ingots in various forms, which you can see in the video"Melting Cans With The Mini Metal Foundry" https://goo.gl/pTP1uG The technique for making the sword in that video, and the gun in this video is called "Lost Foam Casting" and will be demonstrated in a future project video.

Music By: http://www.danosongs.com (Crazy from the message) Project Inspired By: This "Solar Scorcher" project was originally inspired by Dan Rojas of GreenPowerScience: http://youtu.be/JkgFk15uBxw (Fresnel Lens Giant "Big Daddy") Project History & More Info: LEGALITIES: Some people have asked about the legality of treating pennies in this manner. The federal law states that there are exceptions made for use as "educational, amusement, novelty, jewelry, and similar purposes as long as the volumes treated and the nature of the treatment make it clear that such treatment is not intended as a means by which to profit solely from the value of the metal content of the coins." For more information, see: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2007/04/16/E7-7088/prohibition-on-the-exportation-melting-or-treatment-of-5-cent-and-one-cent-coins A 4 foot magnifying glass is powerful enough to melt metal, incinerate wood, and burn holes in concrete. Putting that statement to the test with various items was the purpose of this project. I'm impressed at the results, and excited at the power available through this Fresnel lens that I've nicknamed my "Solar Scorcher". In the summer, the sunlight at this spot is around 2000ºF, maybe more. Enough to melt spots of concrete into glowing orange liquid. I'm curious to see what I can do with all this heat so I've filled a glass bottle with water and I'll punch a hole in the cap. It's incredible to see that the instant I focus my lens on the bottle, it starts smoking. Just a few moments later this water is so hot it's boiling, and I'm a little nervous the bottle might blow. Yep, there it goes. I'll try burning a penny, and, wow, it melted. How about a stack of pennies? Yep, they're nothing but liquid metal now, and I'm thinking that slag in the mixture must be what's left of the copper coating. It's only taking about 4 seconds to melt these. Well, I'm convinced there's an insane amount of power behind these lenses. If you'd like to see where I got this one, take a look at my video on how I hacked it out of an old TV. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFw7U7V1Hok This one boiled water in less than a minute, welded a nickel to concrete, and instantly torched any piece of wood in it's way. It was brought to my attention that Kipkay did a project like a couple of years ago that he called the "Solar Death Ray". Check out his awesome video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAT6IRBK_uE

Project History & More Info: My kids go crazy playing with these little toys because they are soft, squishy, and very colorful. What’s really cool about them is that we can make them together, and they don’t cost very much at all. In-fact, they end up just costing pennies a piece. They make cool gifts for birthday parties, and I personally use them for juggling balls from time to time, because they are perfectly weighted, and have a soft and rubbery grip.

Slam Rod Fire Starter - Ignition By Air!!

Music By: http://www.danosongs.com (Black Box In The Ground) Project Inspired By: wmgurst http://youtu.be/pX9odql1Abc Project History & More Info: A fire piston, or a "slam rod fire starter" as I sometimes call it, is a device used centuries ago to kindle fire. It works because rapid compression heats the air in the chamber to the ignition point of tinders, such as char cloth. The tinder can then be used to ignite kindling, and develop a flame. It's thought that the fire piston may have inspired Rudolf Diesel in his creation of the diesel engine around 1892. I had a fire piston I made out of copper tubing, but I wanted to make one out of clear acrylic so I could actually see the ignition of the tinder. It seemed it mystery how, or when, it actually lit, and I wanted to see. FINDING ACRYLIC: I used google.com to find different plastics companies in my area, and called around until I found one that sold acrylic tubing and rods to the public. I went for a visit, and luckily they had some lengths of scrap tubing they couldn't sell. I asked them if I could use it for a science project, and they gave it to me for free. The tubing I used was 1/2" inside diameter, and the rod was 1/2" outside diameter - clear acrylic. This piston was given to a subscriber, as part of a contest I held in celebration of 10,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel. See more information on the fire piston on Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_piston

Music By: Music by Jason Shaw (RP-Rhastafarian) http://www.audionautix.com Project Inspired By: Samoan show - Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) - Laie Hawaii. Project History & More Info: A friction fire made by the "Fire Plow" method is not as easy as it looks. Practicing with the right woods and techniques is invaluable to being prepared for an actual emergency. I used dried wild hibiscus wood, which in my experience is the easiest wood to do this with. I've heard that dried sotol wood is also very easy. The Samoans say that any type of wood can be used to make a friction fire, and it's important that both sticks come from the same piece of wood. I've tried many different woods and been successful with amazing amounts of smoke, but thus far haven't had any success in developing a coal. It's probably my technique, which I hope I can master over time, but I've found very little information on the subject, and nobody who's actually done it with wood other than hibiscus or sotol.

The container I made, originally, was made of glass. I thought it was a neat idea, but when I told my dad about it, he suggested hikers would probably prefer something more lightweight. I think he was right. When I saw the idea for joining two bottle caps together, I knew it was the perfect solution. I modified the idea slightly by using a hotel key as a divider to create 2 separate compartments, and sealed everything together with a 2 part epoxy. Now two items can be stored inside without much risk of them mixing, or leaking. The container weighs a mere 0.5 oz, unscrews from both ends, and is completely waterproof. I've been really happy with this quick and easy project, and already made 5 of them to store items in my emergency kit. You'll see what I put inside mine in an upcoming project video :)

In this video, rather than using human fat, I felt it would be more appropriate to use bacon fat. And rather than extract the glycerin from the soap, I chose to leave it in because of all the benefits. This project and the results portrayed are depictions of my own personal experience. Your results may vary depending on your experience, and modifications to the idea and ingredients.

How To Make An Electrical Arc Furnace
 
07:41
How to hack flashlight batteries and a fire brick, into a desktop arc reaction chamber. ...For hobby metal melting, and for science! Some quick links to a few of the materials I used: [✓] Lantern battery: http://amzn.to/2cgnKxN [✓] Forstner Bit: http://amzn.to/2c1Ja3V [✓] 3/8 Drill bit: http://amzn.to/2cgl6rL Endcard Links: Micro Welder: https://goo.gl/ZmccT9 Laser Blowgun: https://goo.gl/lu3o0M Magic Mud: https://goo.gl/5dtyXP Matchbox Rockets: https://goo.gl/jguunj See What Else I’m Up To: Instagram: https://goo.gl/C0Q1YU Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBTheKingOfRandom Business Inquiries: For business and sponsorship inquiries please contact us directly: http://www.youtube.com/thekingofrandom/about WARNING: Risk of electric shock, fire hazards, and toxic fumes depending on what material you're working with. Dust from refractory brick should never be inhaled, as it can damage lungs and cause long term respiratory challenges. This project can reach temperatures in excess of 3,000ºF (1,648ºC) which is well beyond the melting point of hobbyists. Caution, care and expert planning are required to mitigate risks. Have fun, but always think ahead, and remember that every project you try is at your own risk. Music By: Scott & Brendo (“Photographs” - Instrumental) http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project Inspired By: This project was originally inspired by Theo Grey and his book, "Mad Science". After seeing the concept, I couldn't find any information anywhere on the internet or in libraries about arc furnace experiments, so I set out on my own to achieve these results. Project History & More Info: If you're wondering where you can get fire brick locally, try a quick Google search for “refractory materials” in your city. I called a couple of companies near me and asked if they'd sell to the general public. All of them said yes. If you can't find anything locally, try searching major hardwares stores online. They usually have inventory online that they don't carry in the stores. The insulating fire bricks I got were the 3” x 4.5” x 9” Alumina-Silicate Brick variety. I got a box of 10 for $33, effectively making them around $3.30 each. I went one step further and designed the furnace so that 2 of them could be made from one brick, cutting the cost in half, making each furnace a pro-rated $1.65 each! They're extremely lightweight, and capable of withstanding the temperatures used in steel working, but soft enough you can cut and carve them with kitchen utensils if you need to. In reading and studying history a bit, I learned that some of the earliest forms of light were made using carbon arc lighting. Large amounts of electricity were pumped through carbon rods, making a bright arc and providing light. To scavenge carbon electrodes, I took a lesson from NurdRage (youtube.com/NurdRage) a couple of years ago I saw his video on what could be scavenged from a carbon-zinc lantern battery (http://bit.ly/IBNurdRageBattery). It's useful to know what common everyday materials are made of, and these heavy duty batteries are containers packed with carbon rods, zinc metal, and manganese dioxide. I tucked the information in the back of my mind until now. In this project I tried melting the zinc casings from the lantern batteries, and casting them into a small ingot, formed with a mini muffin tray. Be cautious of the zinc oxide fumes produced. I haven't personally suffered any ill effects from working with it, but some people claim it can give flu like symptoms, or a fever if inhaled in large quantities. Zinc has a relatively low melting point 787.2°F (419.5°C), so the Arc Furnace is able to melt each casing into liquid zinc in around 5-10 seconds. That's amazing! I don't have an exact purpose for the zinc yet, but it's an easy metal to work with, easy to cast, and great to have on hand for a future projects. It's also one of the main metals used for making a simple carbon-zinc battery. The black stuff pulled out of the battery casings is manganese dioxide. It's a useful chemical for experiments with hydrogen peroxide, so it's worth hanging onto. Although I haven't verified it, I believe any stick welder can be used to power the mini arc furnace, and for most hobbyists, that would definitely be the easier and safer way to go. I just don't own a welder, so I used the one I made instead. You can see how to make it here: https://goo.gl/H0FWxE The longest I've run the unit continuously is around 3-4 minutes, and the electrodes get so hot at that point they can seriously burn your hands, or melt your gloves. I wouldn't recommend running it any longer than that.

How To Escape Professional Handcuffs - With A Paperclip
 
02:48
Here's how to escape from professional, double-locking handcuffs, with a single paperclip. [✓] Handcuffs: http://amzn.to/2cRuP68 [✓] Paperclips: http://amzn.to/2cj9SQr Use this technique if you're being kidnapped, abused, or handcuffed to a sinking ship. Don't try to escape from the police. They will hurt you. Endcard Links: Projects: http://bit.ly/PLWeekendProjects Experiments: http://bit.ly/PLExperiments Life Hacks: http://bit.ly/PLLifeHacks Mad Science: http://bit.ly/PLMadScience See What Else I’m Up To: Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBTheKingOfRandom Instagram: http://bit.ly/InstaGrant Pinterest: http://bit.ly/pingrant Business Inquiries: For business and sponsorship inquiries please contact us directly: http://www.youtube.com/thekingofrandom/about WARNING: Prolonged use of over-tightened handcuffs can lead to nerve damage in the wrists. Do not attempt this trick while in police custody. That would be illegal and you will most likely make yourself the subject of an intense use of force. If you're practicing for entertainment purposes or survival skills, be sure to have a key on hand, and a trained assistant to help in case of emergency. Have fun, but always remember that any actions you take are at your own risk. Music By: Scott & Brendo “American Dream” Get the music: http://bit.ly/SBAllAmericanDream See their awesome music video! http://bit.ly/SBAllAmericanDreamVideo Project Inspired By: The fictional character "Sarah Connor" in Terminator 2, who used a paperclip to pick locks and escape from the asylum. Seemed like it could be a good skill to know. Also be sure to check out Kipkay's excellent tutorial: http://bit.ly/IBKipkayHandcuffs Project History & More Info: There have been a couple movies in the past that got me thinking about how picking locks with a paperclip could be a very useful skill to develop. Paperclips are very common, so they're a practical and convenient option in times of emergency. When I was a kid watching Terminator 2, I was impressed when the fictional character "Sarah Connor" used a paperclip to pick locks on her restraining harness, then open her door in the asylum. It seemed like it could be a good skill to know, so I've practiced when I've had the time to play with it. Other movies that influenced my desire to learn, were "The Time Traveler's Wife", because each time he jumped around in time he was naked, and had to pick locks for shelter and clothing. "The Titanic" was also influential when Jack was handcuffed to a post, and chanced having his hands chopped off while trying to escape from the ship. It would have been safer and more convenient to pick the lock and remove the shackles. So far I have been successful in picking these types of locks with paperclips, but in this video I wanted to demonstrate how to escape from handcuffs, because they aren't the most complicated of locks, and make for good practice and entertainment. To gain experience, I searched around on the internet for a pair of professional grade, steel, double-locking, hinged handcuffs. The thinking was that these would be among the tougher of handcuffs to escape from, because of the limited range of motion. When the cuffs arrived, it only took a few seconds to realize that a paperclip could actually open them without any modifications whatsoever! However, trying to escape while wearing them posed a challenge, because my hands couldn't bend enough to maneuver the clip into the keyhole. So to make it a little more user friendly I developed a quick and easy modification to the paperclip to form a makeshift key that could be used with the 4th and middle fingers, in cooperation with the thumb muscle. The project video shows in depth how the handcuffs work, and how to escape if they've been double locked, so look for that in another video. Now obviously handcuffs aren’t the most complicated of locks, but that doesn’t mean you should ever try escaping from the police. If you do, it’ll actually make your life a lot more difficult. They will most likely cuff you behind your back, which poses new challenges, and if the keyholes aren't on the front side, it will make picking the lock a bit more difficult, and time consuming. Your hands may also be cuffed facing away from each other making it so you can't use your fingers to guide the clip. Perhaps most importantly, attempting an escape from police is illegal, and you'll most certainly be doing yourself a disservice by making yourself a target for intense force. So it’s just better to respect the law, and stay out of trouble in the first place.

Since then, I've seen multiple videos on YouTube demonstrating the effect. Project History & More Info: I've never seen anyone pour super cooled water into another container, and initiate the freeze using an ice cube, so I really wanted to try that. The effect is seen in the blue glass, and the clear glass in the video and, in my opinion, was worth the effort! To get this effect, I put multiple unopened bottles of "PUREFLO" (http://www.pureflo.com) bottled water in the freezer for 2 hours and 45 minutes exactly. The purified water gets supercooled, and when it touches an ice crystal, it turns instantly to ice. It will also do this if the bottle is hit hard enough. This was a really fun project, and one of my favorites because it's safe, awe inspiring, and anyone can do it.

(http://bit.ly/NRGlycerinFire) Project History & More Info: I took the classic science demonstration of using Glycerin and KMnO4, and played with the idea of using it as an alternate starter for survival situations. As it turns out, each chemical can be valuable for survival situations on it's own. But mix them together and you get the added benefit of starting a fire, even if your matches are wet. I've wanted to demonstrate this chemical experiment for years. It is fairly common and there are plenty of demonstrations already on YouTube, but is always shown the same way .. someone mixing the two chemicals together on a plate or dish. I wanted to see if this reaction could be used for something more practical, so I took it to the woods and experimented with survival fires. For the container, I used the soda cap containers I made in a previous project: (http://bit.ly/SodaCapContainer). These are lightweight, and keep the chemicals well separated, as long as they are made correctly. But beware, there could be great danger and big messes to clean up using poorly made containers! This idea could be used for hiking, biking or survival situations. The little packs are lightweight and hold enough chemicals to start 2-4 fires each. When the two chemicals spontaneously combust, they throw off a beautiful pink and purple flame. Most impressively, the reaction can still work even if the mixture is wet.

Music By: http://www.machinimasound.com (Morning Cruise) Project Inspired By: Boy scouts! My dad was the scout leader, and showed me how to make something similar to this when I was a kid, out of cardboard and a tuna can. We called them "buddy burners" and used them for camping. Project History & More Info: During boy a boy scout activity, my dad showed us how to make a cool project called a “buddy burner”. We'd take an empty tuna can, fill it with rolled up cardboard, and soak the whole thing in wax to make a small portable fire, or fire-starter that would burn for an impressive amount of time. When a beverage company approached me and asked what I could do as a life-hack with some of their packaging, this was one of the ideas that came to mind. I adapted the cans to work in lieu of a tuna can, and used the cardboard from the packaging rolled up inside, then melted candles and poured the was in the can. How this works, is that the cardboard acts as a wick, and as it burns, it melts the wax, soaks it up through the cardboard, vaporizes it, and burns it as fuel. The top of the cardboard will burn, but the rest of the cardboard under the wax line will not burn until all the wax is used up. Amazing, these burned for over an hour each. And while they can start BBQ briquettes, I found that the coals eventually get so hot they will melt the aluminum. So tuna cans would be a better choice, but soda cans can work as well. They are also lightweight, easy to make, and great for any survival kit or day pack.

How To Make The Bitty-Q - (A Drink-Can BBQ)
 
04:36
Got an itch to grill, but don't have a BBQ handy? Here's an awesome little hack, to satisfy your meaty cravings one bratwurst at a time! Some quick links to a few of the materials I used: [✓] Hinges: http://amzn.to/2caJE56 [✓] Handle: http://amzn.to/2cgoUfd [✓] Legs: http://amzn.to/2cSk57s [✓] Mini Tongs: http://amzn.to/2crk1gK Wire grill template: http://bit.ly/BittyQGrill In this project you'll see how to make an itty-bitty BBQ, from leftover drink cans. Congratulations to John Forsyth, the winner of the Bitty-Q! For more project videos, check out http://www.thekingofrandom.com Music by http://www.machinimasounds.com (Fire Within) WARNING: Cutting aluminum cans will give the metal very sharp edges. Sharp edges cut skin. You may want to use gloves to mitigate any risk. Hot coals also pose a number of risks. Never use around flammable materials or on tabletops sensitive to heat. This project should not be attempted without adult supervision and adequate training. Use of this video content is at your own risk. I was amazed at how well this really works! I lit 2 coal briquettes in a separate metal container, and let them burn until the outsides turned white, then I transferred them to the Bitty-Q, put a couple of bratwurst on the grill, and came back 10 minutes later to find them perfectly grilled, and mouthwatering. Inspired by: A picture I saw from the team at Mike's Hard Lemonade. It portrayed someone using a drink can as a miniature BBQ. The picture was faked, but I tried it in real life and this is what happened. Special thanks to Mike's Hard Lemonade for supporting these videos.

A makeshift arc reaction chamber. Small enough to sit on the desktop, but powerful enough to melt steel, within minutes.

Dust from refractory brick should never be inhaled, as it can damage lungs and cause long term respiratory challenges. This project can reach temperatures in excess of 3,000ºF (1,648ºC) which is well beyond the melting point of hobbyists. Caution, care and expert planning are required to mitigate risks. Use of this video content is at your own risk. Music By: Scott & Brendo (“Through The Flame” - Instrumental) http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project Inspired By: This project was originally inspired by Theo Grey and his book, "Mad Science". After seeing the concept, I couldn't find any information anywhere on the internet or in libraries about arc furnace experiments, so I experimented on my own until achieving these results. Project History & More Info: I made a homemade stick welder from old microwave parts (http://bit.ly/HomemadeStickWelder) and experimented with it's power by sparking an arc between two carbon electrodes I pulled out of a “heavy duty” lantern battery. Although I haven't verified it, I believe any stick welder can be used to power the mini arc furnace, and for most hobbyists, that would definitely be the easier and safer way to go. I just don't own a welder, so I used the one I made instead. You can get refractory brick from major hardware stores online, but to find something local, I did a Google search for “refractory materials” in my city. I called a couple of local companies and asked if they'd sell to the general public, and most did. At their warehouse, I identified the 3” x 4.5” x 9” Alumina-Silica Bricks as the kind I needed, which are extremely lightweight, and capable of withstanding temperatures used in steel working. Most local refractory suppliers will only sell the bricks in cases, but luckily they had an open case in the shop, and sold me a single brick for $6. However, I later went back and got a case of 10 for about $33, making the cost of each brick around $3.30. I found the furnace can be powered off 120v mains power by center tapping the arc welder unit, however it performs tremendously better on 240v without any modifications. Impressively I didn't even need to use The “Scariac” (http://bit.ly/Scariac) to ballast it. In all my experimenting, it worked just fine on a 20 amp breaker by plugging it in and sparking the arc. A commercial welder should give your circuit breaker the same electrical protection because it will limit the current that can be drawn. The longest I've run the unit continuously is around 3-4 minutes, and the electrodes get so hot at that point they can seriously burn your hands, or melt your gloves. I realize it would be easy to modify them to have insulating handles and run it longer, however I believe that's beyond the scope of this project, and there is good risk that the insulation on the cables would start melting and the system would self destruct. I designed the furnace so you can easily make two of them from one brick, and you'll see how I made them in the project video, “How To Make The Mini Arc Furnace”.

The federal law states that there are exceptions made for use as "educational, amusement, novelty, jewelry, and similar purposes as long as the volumes treated and the nature of the treatment make it clear that such treatment is not intended as a means by which to profit solely from the value of the metal content of the coins."

Pennies newer than 1982 are nearly 98% Zinc. The redox reaction between the copper and zinc metals allow electrons to flow and each cell provides around 0.6 volts of electric potential. Here is how to light up an LED and power a calculator using some loose pocket change! I found this link that helps explain the reaction and why it works: http://www.science.uwaterloo.ca/~cchieh/cact/c123/battery.html Basically, a galvanic cell consists of at least two half cells, a reduction cell and an oxidation cell. Chemical reactions in the two half cells provide the electrons for the galvanic cell operations. Copper ions gain electrons (reduced) while zinc ions give them up (oxidized). = (redox) An electrolyte like salt water or vinegar helps get the metals into ions. Electrons flow through the electric conductors connecting the electrodes, as ions flow through the salt bridge. The overall reaction of the galvanic cell is: Zn + Cu2+ = Zn2+ + Cu

This is not a "free energy" device, "over unity" device, or a claim to be the solution to the worlds energy crisis. This is a project I did to experiment with the electrolysis of water, and the resulting gasses collected. Music By: Kevin Macleod (Breakdown) http://incompetech.com/ Project Inspired By: "Smack's Booster": http://www.free-energy-info.co.uk/Smack.pdf Project History & More Info: The generator requires electricity to electrolyze H2O (water) into gas. The resulting mixed gas is sometimes referred to as Oxy-Hydrogen gas, which is 2 parts Hydrogen (H2) and 1 part Oxygen (O2). I typically hook this up to my car battery while the vehicle is running, so the alternator takes most of the load. On 12 volts I get about 1.5 liters/minute, but when I want to make the gas faster, I hook 2 car batteries in series for 24 volts, and this exponentially increases the gas production to over 5 liters per minute. Current draw seems to be around 20-50 amps depending on whether you use 12-24 volts. High current draws mean the electrolyte heats up, and if left too long the plastic can warp or melt causing structural failure. Some people ask why the plates aren't all electrically connected. The plates that aren't connected are called "floater" plates, or "neutral" plates. There is too much information to post about them here, so do a google search, or check out websites like http://www.hho4free.com/neutral_plates.htm for an in depth explanation of the theory. I used KOH as my electrolyte because research suggested it was the best. I haven't experimented with other electrolytes, but have heard that salt, sodium hydroxide, vinegar, etc could work, but will dirty and may corrode the plates. Potassium Hydroxide keeps the system clean, however, it is caustic, so be careful if you choose to use it. You can probably get away with about 2-4 teaspoons of KOH per 6 liters of water. This system produces an extremely powerful OxyHydrogen gas. When the gas is used, it simply turns back into water, and that's good for the environment. However I believe it takes more electric energy to produce the gas than is obtained from the gas. This device merely converts the energy from one form to another, with given losses. As long as you have enough electricity, the amount of water already in this system is enough to produce thousands and thousands of liters of fuel. Some people say this is the fuel of the future. Either way, it's a very powerful gas! If you need more information, or want to purchase build plans for this design, you can get them here: http://bit.ly/HHOParts

They usually cost more to fix than they could be sold for, so people are begging you to come take them away for free! I usually find mine on the classified ads under the "free" section, but they are also common on the sides of streets and alleyways where people have left them for trash. PLEASE NOTE: These lenses are found in "rear-projection" televisions and not all are the same. Some are discolored, and some concentrate to a beam rather than a point. The particular screen I found was a crystal clear acrylic lens that focused to a point. It may have been luck that I found it on my first try, because 3 TV's after that all had lesser grade lenses, but still produced enough heat to melt zinc. Just FYI! You can also see http://youtu.be/xExXjXm0YV0 for examples of these different lenses. It was brought to my attention that Kipkay did a project like this a couple of years ago that he called the "Solar Death Ray". It's probably where FenceKid got the idea, which in turn, inspired me.

Making an ARC Welder - Part 1 of 2

It's similar to the idea of a Variac (variable auto-controller), with a few more hazards to be aware of. The Micro-Welder itself does not have an on-off switch, and can pose a fire hazard if plugged directly into a mains power socket. I made this to be used exclusively with the Scariac. (Look for how to build that in another project.) Stick welding, and/or the modification of a Microwave Oven Transformer (M.O.T), can be very dangerous and presents risk of UV radiation, shock hazards, burns, fires, fumes and a multitude of other risks. This project should not be attempted without adult supervision and adequate training. Misuse, or careless use, of tools or projects may result in serious injury. Use of this video content is at your own risk. Music By: Music by Jason Shaw (TU-FeelsGood2B) http://www.audionautix.com Project Inspired By: MattsAwesomeStuff http://youtu.be/-NLy-LL_TGQ Project History & More Info: Did you know you can make an AC arc welder using parts from your microwave? I used 2 transformers from 2 different microwaves, and about 50' of 8 AWG stranded copper cable from a local hardware store. You could probably save some money by scavenging for free wire, but I decided to look at the "end of coil" section at the hardware store, and was able to negotiate a deal for half price on the cable, so the 50' only cost me about $17. The modified MOTs will have a new secondary that is 18 turns of the 8 AWG cable, and both MOTs are tied together in series. I also found I needed to run the system on 240 volts AC to get the power output for good welding. My goal was 30+ volts AC with a variable amperage from 0-120+ Amps. There are a few videos on the internet that show various people who have tried making a stick welder from a Microwave Oven Transformer. There are even a couple of tutorials suggesting how to do it. However, in my experience of trying to duplicate these projects, my MOT welder either got so hot that the insulation on the wires melted and shorted it out, and/or it didn't provide enough power to strike and maintain an arc. The idea of the Microwave Welder isn't new, but to date, I personally haven't come across a video or project where anyone actually welded anything with one of these "so-called" microwave welders. The most that's been shown is to lay a bead on a piece of metal, which I didn't feel was very credible because this doesn't prove it can weld. My earlier experiments with 1 MOT could also lay a bead, but it didn't have enough heat or penetration to make anything stick. A welder also needs a way to reliably control the amperage (which no other project does). I saw one project where dimmer switches were used on the primary coils, however dimmer switches are only able to handle around 600 watts, and these stick welders require upwards of 2,000-3,000 watts. In my experience, the dimmer switches fail very quickly and within a couple minutes of trying to weld. I'm happy to say that the welder in my project does work for me. It welds 1/16" AC rods very well, and I believe the transformer temperatures are very reasonable and sustainable for the amount of welding I plan to do as a simple hobbiest welder.

How To Make Sugar Rockets

How to make hobby rocket “sugar motors” using sugar and kitty litter, that shoot up over 2,300 feet high, and cost less than $0.50 to make.

This video is mainly for educational and demonstrational purposes. If you’re going to attempt it anyway, I highly suggest contacting local rocket clubs to become familiar with local laws, and how to stay out of trouble with the FAA, and avoid hurting any people or property. Playing with unstable rocket motors could result in serious injury, property damage and/or legal ramifications. Use of this video content is at your own risk. You should be aware that misuse, or careless use, of rocket propellants or ignition of an incendiary or explosive material may not be legal in your area. Check local laws and inquire with local rocketry clubs on how to safely make and launch sugar rockets. Music By: Scott & Brendo (“Reverie” - Instrumental) http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project Inspired By: 4 years of testing and experimenting with sugar rockets, and recently a lot of influence from the book “Easy PVC Rockets” by Jason Smiley. (http://bit.ly/IBEasyPVCRockets) If you check out the link, please share the love and let Jason know that Grant Thompson sent you. :) Thank you! My friend NightHawkInLight also has an awesome video on a different method of making a cored rocket with black powder. You can see that here: http://bit.ly/IBBPCoredRockets Project History & More Info: After making my video on Homemade Rocket Fuel (http://bit.ly/DIYRocketFuel) I had a lot of requests on how I built the one that launched at the end of the video. Although that rocket motor worked very well, I wanted to get the process down to a science before making a video about it. This project video shows a slightly different approach to the sugar motor using the same ingredients, and a demonstration of how the rocket motor performs. The main difference is that this is rammed powder as opposed to caramelizing the sugar mix. Sugar rockets are the slowest burning of all rocket fuels, and it's highly unlikely that PVC will explode when using kitty litter plugs and sugar for the propellent. In all my destructive testing, and controlled attempts to get one to fail catastrophically, the PVC was never damaged. All that would happen is that the plugs would blast out. Saying that, I wouldn't use PVC with black power rockets. That is a different story altogether. These motor blasted up over 2,300 feet high without any payload, which has been very consistent with all the motors I made for the project video. Some people wonder how I was able to measure it at 2,300 feet high. It's a rough guess based on my raw video footage. I was able to detect the apogee of the rocket by a timed delay mix showing the arch, then measuring the time from apogee to impact. It was just about 12 seconds exactly, and I entered that into a gravity calculator for falling objects (http://www.gravitycalc.com/) and got a result of 706 meters, which is 2,316 ft. Although the project video shows step-by-step how to build the motors, I would caution anyone wanting to make one to take precautions. These are not toys. They can light things on fire, and fall down on peoples heads, which I imagine could cause serious injury. You may need permits, or only be able to launch these on special experimental launch days with local rocketry clubs. My launch was out in the middle of the dessert, miles and miles away from any people, property and anything flammable. Safety precautions were in place in case anything went wrong. Having said that, I’m very proud of how these little motors perform, and amazed at how cheaply they can be made. To see how to add a time delay mix and parachute ejection charge, make sure to watch part 2 (Redneck Rocketry) http://bit.ly/RedneckRocketry

Rockin' Paper Plate Speaker
 
05:11
Here's how to make a real working paper plate speaker for under $1.00! Some quick links to a few of the materials I used: [✓] Magnet wire: http://amzn.to/2c8XmGY [✓] Hot glue: http://amzn.to/2cVGTU4 Endcard Links: Candy Cannon: https://goo.gl/Asr1P6 Mousetrap Gun: https://goo.gl/FTs5II Gravity Puzzle: https://goo.gl/9WtoHa Ninja Turtle Ooze: https://goo.gl/y277NW See What Else I’m Up To: Instagram: https://goo.gl/C0Q1YU Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBTheKingOfRandom Pinterest: http://bit.ly/pingrant Business Inquiries: For business and sponsorship inquiries please contact us directly: http://www.youtube.com/thekingofrandom/about WARNING: Do not try hacking your TV at home. The capacitors may hold a charge and pose a risk of electric shock. This project should not be attempted without adult supervision and adequate training. Misuse, or careless use, of tools or projects may result in serious injury or death. Use of this video content is at your own risk. Music By: http://www.danosongs.com (Gem Droids) and Kevin MacLeod - (Pure Attitude) http://www.incompetech.com Project Inspired By: A book I read at Radio Shack on making a simple speaker, supplemented by Make Magazines video: http://youtu.be/EIbzQ_8-aaM Project History & More Info: To all the MythBusters fans out there .. No offense to MythBusters is intended. I realize they busted the HouseholdHacker project that claimed using aluminum foil and a penny would work. However, I was motivated on this project mainly by the statement that "a paper plate speaker for less than a dollar, really is just too good to be true". This video is meant to be a fun way to show it can be done under $1. If copper wire is an issue, the TV hacking, and wire from the sump pump motor is to demonstrate that copper wire is everywhere, not just in stores. The idea of making a speaker out of a paper plate is intriguing, and to do it for under a buck is even better. But first, we'll have to understand how a speaker works.

Music By: Scott & Brendo (“One Afternoon” - Instrumental) http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project Inspired By: These electronic projects are original ideas (original to me anyway), based on the challenges of having our kids watching tv after we’ve gone to bed, cold winter temperatures approaching, and wanting to be notified if someone is tampering with our safe. Project History & More Info: I was approached by a company called LittleBits and asked what I could do with their product, and these are some of the things I came up with. After playing with the circuits though, I realize there really is no limit to what you could make. Think of them as the “LEGOs”® of the electronics world, and you’ll get an idea of why there’s so much you can do with them. My kids are all 5 and under, but even they can put together simple circuits, press buttons and move motors. I built other circuits for solar tracking, and some that used servos and small motors as well, but I didn’t get to show them off in the video. Admittedly I didn’t know what LittleBits were before I made this video, but now that I’ve played with them, I can recommend them as a great tool for learning and exploring electronics on a beginner level. And a quick and easy way to prototype simple circuits without having to strip or solder wires. This video was, in fact, sponsored by LittleBits, and if you’re thinking about getting a kit, use the promo code THEKINGOFRANDOM to get $20 off, and free shipping in the USA. Hopefully that helps chip the price down to where it’s more affordable :)

How To Make A "Car Hero" Key Box
 
04:27
The next time you need your car keys urgently but can't find them anywhere, here's how to avoid the panic and embarrassment of your situation, and emerge a “Car Hero” instead. Some quick links to a few of the materials I used: [✓] 45lb neo magnet with hook: http://amzn.to/2cpUeSN [✓] Spice container: http://amzn.to/2cqqlVK Endcard Links: Electric Igniters: http://bit.ly/RocketIgniters Bitty-Q: https://goo.gl/2aHDv4 Mad Science Minion: https://goo.gl/4tVJdy Making Butter: https://goo.gl/7GkigI See What Else I’m Up To: Instagram: https://goo.gl/C0Q1YU Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBTheKingOfRandom Pinterest: http://bit.ly/pingrant Business Inquiries: For business and sponsorship inquiries please contact us directly: http://www.youtube.com/thekingofrandom/about WARNING: This video is only for entertainment purposes. If you rely on the information portrayed in this video, you assume the responsibility for the results. While having a set of backup keys on your vehicle will help you greatly in times of need, it also opens the risk of having your vehicle stolen by anyone who could potentially find your secret key box, so make sure it's very well hidden in a place no one is likely to find them. Have fun, but always think ahead, and remember that every project you try is at YOUR OWN RISK. Music By: Scott & Brendo “Through The Flame” - Instrumental Check out their music on iTunes: http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes See their YouTube page: http://bit.ly/YTScottDW Project Inspired By: Project Inspired By: Parenting nightmares, and the frustration and embarrassment of being locked out of the car when I desperately needed to get in quickly. Project History & More Info: I’ve had a couple of instances where I’ve shown up to my vehicle after work unable to find my keys when I needed them. In addition, our small children have somehow found ways to lock themselves in the van with the keys still inside on a few different occasions. Once was out in the cold while we were sledding, and loading up to go home. Another time was while renting a vehicle, while we were loading up our luggage. It seems our kids have the uncanny ability to press exactly the wrong buttons at exactly the worst times. But I suppose that’s just the nature of kids in general. To open vehicles, we’ve tried a number of lock-picking techniques, tried using coat-hangers to fetch the keys, tried breaking windows, and calling a locksmith. One time we even had to call the fire department, who were all set to tear the door off, but luckily our child stumbled on the right button and unlocked the door just minutes before they did. Chances are you’ve experienced something similar, so in this project, my goal was to make a simple little device that would provide a backup set of keys in an emergency situation, and avoid all the embarrassment, cost, and inconvenience of either locking yourself out of your vehicle, or the panic of trying to rescue a small child locked inside. The Car Hero key box was my simple low-cost solution, and after saving my hide multiple times, I couldn’t be much happier with how it’s worked out and am happy to present it as a viable option. In earlier prototypes, I noticed that the key fob would get dirty and rust over time, which would kill the battery or the electronics. To prevent that from happening, I added the weather resistant container, so now when you need the keys, they’re perfectly clean, dry, and as good as new. The functionality of the key box was confirmed when my wife was hit 2 weeks ago on the freeway traveling full highway speed, which spun the van to an abrupt halt, and ended up totaling the van as a complete write-off. The van was taken in for assessments, wherein the mechanics ripped apart the vehicle assessing damage and the cost to fix or replace it. During these severe conditions of impact, jolting, and mechanics inspecting the rear of the vehicle, the key box impressively was still attached to the vehicle, and was never discovered by the mechanics. Based on these results, I have full confidence that if hidden well, your key box will never be discovered, and will withstand nearly any road condition it could be subjected to. So rather than having to break a window, call a locksmith, or try to coax your child into pressing the unlock button from inside, I recommend taking a quick preventative step by installing a spare set of keys, in a place no one is likely to find them.

Label Channel: http://youtube.com/tasty Project Inspired By: Two different friends that let me study the propane torches they made from designs found on the internet. After experimenting independently, I developed the two designs into this hybrid. Project History & More Info: A year after I made my charcoal foundry (http://bit.ly/PopCanMelting), a friend named Chris came by to visit, and to show me a foundry he'd made out of a propane tank, and refractory cement. His was more expensive to construct, but was made to last longer, and he powered it with propane instead of charcoal. He said the burner plans he followed were the common "Ron Reil" design, which for some reason I had never heard of. I bought the plumbing parts from Home Depot with intentions to build the torch, but they just sat on my worktable for months as I worked on developing other projects first. After a considerable amount of time, a young man named Shadrick came to my house and noticed the plumbing parts on my table and asked if I was making a propane burner. To my surprise, he'd made a propane foundry himself and had been using it to forge steel, melt aluminum, and make knives for over a year. His assembly was completely different from the one Chris had, and since I really didn't have much idea of how propane burners worked at all, I was interested in reverse engineering the science behind it. I realized that the purpose of the burner was to mix certain amounts of fuel and air to achieve the hottest temperature possible, and the cleanest burn. I played with different lengths of tubing, and stumbled on the realization that by controlling the air-flow through the intake port, I could adjust the flame completely, and use any length of pipe I wanted. I also noticed that without a nozzle on the end, the burner wouldn't work. I quickly developed some prototypes for an air regulator design I made from the lid of a tuna can, and it worked perfectly! My final design was a hybrid of the two systems, with most of the plumbing parts based around the Ron Reil assembly, and the rest based on the connections I saw on Shad's system.
