Instructables is holding a contest where the most amazing HOWTO, as selected by the readers, will win $20,000 worth of Craftsman tools. That's a lot of hardware. There are nearly 200 entries, from a car that runs on trash to an LED hula hoop to a six-legged robot. Honestly, all of the projects are amazing for different reasons. My vote goes to The Golden Mean, Jon Sarriugarte and Kyrsten Mate's dreamy snail car that we've featured here before and I covered in MAKE (Vol. 16). Instructables $20k contest
