I found some awesome 70s military nightvision parts on eBay. Difficult to resist really. It cost me £90 in parts and compared to a consumer model I bought for a similar price, mine was 10,000 times more sensitive.
A nixie clock with a hand finished CNC carved base made of a naturally beautiful wood called padauk, that it turns out I am allergic too. Luckily a friend did almost all the sanding for me!
Lamp made from formula one car components including the awesome tubiness of a Williams exhaust manifold.
A dart floats below an electromagnet, stabilised by arduino. A project designed and built in one day using an arduino, IR LED and photodiode, an old transformer, some scrap bits and a 3D printer.
A windtunnel, based on a NASA design, built from scrap parts and cardboard. We built this to let kids test their paper planes inside, hopefully encouraging them to become engineers:)
