I guess I really should salvage my old VCR. There are some useful components in there! (Via Why, That’s Delightful!)

  1. Oh come on, it had me going untill the GPS. I give them credit for the little monster too. Thanks for posting stuff like this from time to time.

  2. think about it “A”
    this is very make related. all true makers, are also scavengers. we take things apart to get… stuff. and this is comedy (hey i thought it was amusing) based on that.

  3. Regarding whether or not this is something that belongs on Make… why not? Do you think they’re going to run out of internet anytime soon?

    Space available is a very poor way to maintain standards. Along the lines of this logic, MAKE might as well host porn while they’re at it, “hey, they are not going to run out of space”

    Anyway, I’m just sad to see wimp.com and make converge like this, but I do look forward to make and 4chan getting together.

    I see quality of content standards in MAKE’s future…or maybe not.

  5. This isn’t the sort of thing we post very often. I thought the video was funny, especially given the controversy those battery hacking vids generated a year and half ago. And just given the fact that DIY tutorial vids have become prevalent enough to be spoof-worthy.

    But yeah, don’t worry, we don’t plan on trying to give CollegeHumor any competition.

  6. I am concerned by some of these comments. It seems to me that prolonged exposure to Make results in a complete loss of ones sense of humour. Maybe this site should carry a warning.
