No, I'm not headbanging. It's just the 'shake-to-shuffle' feature.

Instructables user hanlin_y did the math and realized that alkaline batteries are one of the most expensive forms of power that consumers can use. So he/she/it came up with a solution to power your parts even if they don't come with an AC adapter. With a wall plug, wires, and bamboo strips you can run your electronics off the grid; saving money and the environment at the same time.

Meet the Little Printer. This adorable little guy from design firm BERG is a smartphone-controlled micro printer that can print anything from designs to receipts to to-do lists. It's scheduled for a 2012 release; no word yet on its price or what to do about ink or paper replacements.

A cool visual concept. But in every other sense... nope.

From BPerry2:

I was able to build this lamp for under $20 (US) The books cost $6, The Switch and fixture cost $7.50, and a few misc. items that was another $4.

Another successful book lamp from a dedicated user! That particular light bulb looks brilliant, a great addition to the build. If you missed the first one, here's what user Richard C made last week. Well done guys, let's keep them coming!

The vacuum cleaner was missing those floor cleaning accessories, so I made my own with isolant tape and a box.

Altoid tin alterations are pretty popular among the hacking community, but this one takes it down in size. Using the Altoids Slim tins, Instructables user Joshua Zimmerman put together these bite-sized LED flashlights for under $5. With just a tiny bit of drilling and soldering, you could easily assemble a handful of these in an hour or two.

Last week I issued a challenge to design a book lamp like boutique ones made by Typewriter Boneyard but for a fraction of the cost. Lo and behold, user Richard made a beauty. Using three used books and light fitting parts found at a DIY store, he built this model with two hours of spare time and less than £15. A tip of the hat to you sir for putting together such

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.

Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.
