Yep is a new search engine that purports to "give 90% of ad revenue to content creators."

I was impressed with its results: it found useful sites about people I searched for that didn't appear in Google's results.

Free, the way we like it.

Balancing Backpack

YouTube description:

I set up a bar which is a steel scaffold pole and tried my best to walk along it.

Sometimes I could almost make it to the end, but most of the time I did far worse than that.

It's a bit easier if you crouch right down and use your arms to help you balance, but standing up tall makes it even harder.

Standing still on the spot for any length of time is practically impossible.

But could I make a device that would help me balance?

I've built a couple of projects that used reaction wheels to make a device balance on the spot.

This is a wheel which rotates and dynamically accelerates in either direction based on the angle of the device.

Force equals mass times acceleration, so we only get a reaction force when the wheel is accelerating or changing direction.

But how big would a reaction wheel need to be to help me balance so I can walk all the way down the beam?

Human Slingshot


From the website:

With the Human Slingshot, you and three friends can fling each other around the inside of a giant stretchable band like a bouncing pinball.


Gameplay is simple, but amazingly fun. In a synchronized pattern, players run toward each other and into the walls of the giant band, creating the momentum necessary to catapult the other players across the confines of the slingshot.


The Human Slingshot is made from a proprietary blend of black polyester and spandex that is lightweight, durable, comfortable, UV resistant, and provides the perfect amount of elasticity.


Includes a high-quality carrying case.


Features and Details:




Can't quite pull the trigger?
