Space Invaders at Work

It was business card time at work. Every member of the company received 1000 business cards to use as appropriate, due to an accident I received 2000 of my own. Given that in the previous 2 years at I had only used 100 business cards I felt that appropriate use for my cards was to turn them into artwork.

6 business cards can be folded into a self supporting cube, those cubes can interlink with each other and form much larger structures. My initial idea was to fold the cubes with the text on the inside so as to create white cubes and text on the outside to create coloured cubes. With 2 different colour cubes some basic pixel art images become possible. The instructable below shows you have to create these card cubes and how to link them together to form a wall of cubes.

Iron Man Arc Reactors

A long time ago now I made an Iron Man Arc Reactor for a fancy dress party with a movie theme. I wrote about how I made mine and posted instructions that people could follow on the Instructables website. Shortly after that I received an influx of emails asking me for details about how much they would cost to purchase and how quickly I could deliver them. So here by popular demand is my very own page where people can purchase Arc Reactors from me directly and an associated FAQ.
