We have two 30-year-old poolside chairs. They might be 40 years old. They are excellent metal chairs with adjustable backs. The problem was that the plastic sliders on the bottom of the legs had long ago disintegrated, leaving nothing but bare metal. So, when my wife or kids dragged the chairs across the concrete, the legs would make a brain-curdling screeching sound. I had been thinking about making wooden plugs to stick into the hollow legs like corks, but then I realized I could easily make custom sliders with my 3D printer. Read the rest

Every year, our friend Adam Savage of Mythbusters and Tested walks the Comic-Con floor completely disguised by his costume and makes a video about it. This year, he was joined by astronaut Chris Hadfield and they both wore spacesuits like those in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Read the rest

I’ve recently discovered the line of cool pocket-size magic tricks made by Tenyo, a Japanese company founded in 1960 that has gained a cult following among amatuer magicians. Tenyo magic tricks are original, clever, and easy to perform.
One of my favorite Tenyo tricks is Flash Dice. It consists of a plastic box and six dice. You can do a number of effects with it. For instance you can put the dice in the box randomly, close the lid, give the box a shake, then lift the lid to reveal that the faces of the dice are arranged in order from 1 to 6. Another shake randomizes the dice, and another reveals the dice are arranged in order from 6 to 1.
Another trick you can do with Flash Dice: Give one of the dice to the spectator and ask him or her to set it on the table with any number they wish facing up. You put the other five dice in the box with random numbers facing up, place the lid on the box, and shake. When you lift the lid, all the dice will show their chosen number.
My 12-year-old says this is her favorite magic trick ever, and Carla (editor of Wink) can’t figure out how it’s done, and she is very hard to fool.
