Things i've Built

G4 iMac Converted to PC Monitor

Wired the TMDS lines from the LCD to a new DVI port on the back. Replaced the innards with an ATX PSU (original was unusable), case fan, and some subtle blue LEDs. <a href="http://www.dremeljunkie.com/2011/08/guide-step-by-step-17-imac-g4-tmds-to.html"; target="_blank">http://www.dremeljunkie.com/2011/08/guide-step-by-step-17-imac-g4-tmds-to.html</a>;

Phaser Laser

Modded Enterprise era toy phaser with green laser diode.

Measuring Tape Yagi Antenna

Built for contacting the space station and other ham satellites on 144 Mhz. Has a tripod mount and a smartphone holder for aiming using VR apps.

Automatic Window Roller Downer

I like to drive with all the windows and the sun roof open and got tired of holding down all the buttons, so I made a circuit to open and close everything automatically. (<a href="http://youtu.be/xSr3egoyMVE"; target="_blank">http://youtu.be/xSr3egoyMVE</a>;)

Fungus

A clone of NetFungus for Android. Sort of like a combination between Tetris and Reversi. The goal is simple; engulf your opponents before they eat you. (<a href="https://github.com/unlimitedbacon/kfungus"; target="_blank">https://github.com/unlimitedbacon/kfungus</a>;)

Ultrasonic Dog Annoyer

Based on the infamous Portable Dog Killer by Steve Gibson (<a href="http://twit.tv/sn/281"; target="_blank">http://twit.tv/sn/281</a>;). Basically its a 555 with, an amp, a tweeter, and a knob for adjusting the frequency from 15 - 20 Khz. Causes instant pain in younger siblings.
