Baby Bottle Robot

at 12:05 pm. Filed under Funny Hacks

 

Do you have a baby that is keeping you up all night? This Baby Bottle Robot uses negative reinforcement to curb the baby from continuing. This robot will gently swing the bottle over to the crib, punch the baby in the face to firmly lay the baby on their back and of course drops the bottle within reach of the baby. Give this a few days of operation and you will be happily sleeping through the night with no more interruptions.

Huge Hydraulic Press Folds Paper

at 4:46 pm. Filed under Funny Hacks, Insane Equipment

 

There is a theory that you can’t fold paper more then 7 times. There was even a Mythbuster Episode about it. By pressing the paper between folds it is easier to work with but even with the power of this press the experiment fails when the paper basically explodes out of the press.

High Current Destruction

 

Releasing a large charge all at once can have some fantastic results. Lemming from the EEVBlog forum has taken 16 X 2500V 40uF capacitors all connected in parallel, this provides 2180J potential. They are able to provide about 4000A at 2500V for a short time! The video below shows what happens when you pass too much current through a pencil.

Automated Telemarketer Blackhole

at 2:52 pm. Filed under Funny Hacks

 
 

We all hate telemarketers and scammers. They often call us and have a script that they go through with a point of not taking no for an answer. It is very hard to nicely tell them that you are not interested. Lenny from Toao.net is an automated system that answers the phone and interacts in a plausible way as an elderly male. Next time you get a telemarketer call you why not transfer them over to Lenny at 1-347-514-7296, it looks like the line is taken down from time to time when prank callers abuse the line.

“The 99% are the telemarketers who don’t respect the Do Not Call List.  Or they purchase a copy of it, and market specifically to it.  Perhaps they’re exempt from respecting the DNCL, and they call people who are listed just because they can.  They run credit card or vacation scams.  They spoof their Caller ID so you think it’s your neighbour calling you.  They call at 9PM and wake your kids up.

For those telemarketers, there is Lenny.  Lenny is a hilarious set of very convincing recordings designed to fool telemarketers into thinking they’ve called a real person.”
