And we’re back with our nineteenth installment of Your Comments. Here are our favorites from the past week, from Make: Online, our Facebook page, and Twitter.


Inspired by the Whiteboards, blackboards, and brainstorming tools list, Jonathan-Peterson shared this excellent idea:

Marc Canter ended up using a picket fence in his backyard as a collaborative brainstorming space for digital id and similar things. Sitting in the backyard having cookouts and happy hour beers with colleagues with chalk, permanent markers and paint near at hand is pretty genius:

Kenton doubted the authenticity of the handiwork featured in the How-To: Make a fake beard:

Those are FAKE beards???

Banana has a good use for the Homemade tiny BBQ:

would have loved to see that baby fired up to throw a couple shrimp on the barbi.

Simon had an interesting observation about the Burr puzzle cutlery:

It’s a cutlery Czech hedgehog!

John Boxall shares his plan for the ultimate anti-TV combo, using the IR Jammer kit:

John Park – using one of these and a TV-B-Gone is the ultimate in television denial. My favourite eatery has a few large TVs around the dining area, so I switch off the set closest to me, then buffer up the IR Jammer to get some peace and quite. Highly recommended. Wrote about it here:

And circuitnewb had some kinds words for Collin, about his LED Color Organ video:

Hey Collin, I’m a long time Make Blog reader. I have got to say that this type of post adds so much to the community. I’m still learning electronics and the detailed videos of putting circuits together is exactly what I need to advance my skills. Thanks for the Circuit Skills series, hope you keep it going for us circuit newbs.

On Facebook, Misja van Laatum had a good analysis of the Grilled sausage scented iPhone soap:

It’s a bit like gasoline flavored My Little Pony cake. Delightfully random :D
