We’ve been putting blood sweat and tears into our most advanced power wheels racer yet. Here’s a little video we took during our latest benchmarking test. We’ve reduced our drag coefficient by over 40%! We can verify this because we have fancy expensive equipment which measure this!
One of our members, James Kemp, was featured on the Dangerous Prototypes blog for his work on reverse engineering car parking sensors. Cool!
James’ full article can be seen on the instructables website here.
Did we mention we have a big awesome laser cutter? Probably! We always mention that. Enjoy this little video Matt threw together while laser cutting himself a laptop stand. Complete with corny Antiques Roadshow-esque jazz music.
Do you want to cut your own laptop stand? Head on over to Thingiverse! Have your own idea? Come on in and we’ll teach you how to use this beast!

Isn’t technology amazing?
You probably should have paid attention in highschool shop class, but you didn’t. As a result, your fingers are at risk. In an effort to remedy this, resident expert Dave Alvarez is teaching a wood shop safety class. If you feel lost and confused in the wood shop, take this class. If you don’t feel lost and confused, you should probably attend anyways because you developed a few bad habits over the years. We said so.
Come one, Come all!
