  1. Anyone else find things like “Build a robot from a coat hanger” annyoing when the coat hanger is just a minor element.

    No need to mention the server motor, plastic gears or dozen or so other parts. It’s all about the coat hanger.

    This is just like the build a fuel cell out of a band-aid article a few weeks ago, no mention of the $50 MEA, it’s really just made of band-aids.

    What’s next, build a cutting edge PC out of a 99 cent sharpie, where in reality you just write your name on the front with the sharpie?
