Deviant Artist Midnight Angel put together an arm blade stylized after the ones used in the Assassin's Creed video game series. Using a drawer opening mechanism, a spring for a screen door, and a throwing knife, the weapon works surprisingly smoothly. The full instructions are on Angel's page, and you can see it in action below.

Wei Xinlong, a senior at Northeast Normal University in Changchun, built this for his girlfriend Sun Shasha. Methinks that if this is real and works well, the world is soon to see a whole new wave of tablet PCs.

I have absolutely no idea what process engineering is. But from now on whenever hear that word I'm going to think of this. And so should you.

The Ultimate Glue Decision Chart

A few notes:

Clearly, we can add vinyl records to the list of materials wood glue is used for.

I've never found a spray glue that doesn't wear off in a matter of days.

Just like this chart, I absolutely swear by the power of hot glue. I recently used it as the only adhesive on my Halloween costume and it held together superbly.
