I think this is exactly what a construction site needs; gas-powered, all terrain wheelbarrows speeding in between precarious scaffolding. What could go wrong?

Since Monday is a holiday, I decided to treat you guys with some Mad Science a few days early. I'll admit; this is one of the best creations I've seen... ever. ~NSHA

From the submitter:

So you have a ceiling fan in a room with a cathedral ceiling that needs a light bulb and no ladder available. Using a broom stick, an empty pill bottle, a hair scrunchy, a large chef's knife, and some duct tape you can build Bulb Changing Tool 5000. Simply cut a series 1-1/2" long slits lengthwise starting at the open end of the pill bottle to make a collapseable bulb holder. Wrap the hair scrunchy around the pill bottle to enable a nice grippy action. Punch a hole in the bottom of the pill bottle.

Kho Jian, a metalworker from Louhe in Henan province, central China, is designing and building the craft using re-salvaged and converted oil tanks. The 'Noah's Ark' will come at a cost of £20,000, and will be fitted with a range of mod-cons including a kitchen and bathrooms. It will also use technology that is employed for space travel in order to keep it watertight - while also providing doors and windows. 'He believes we are heading for a world flood and he wants his own ark to save himself and his family,' said Kho, who aims to have the finished craft ready for delivery soon.
