OPEN-SOURCE PLASMA-SCULPTURE: the trick to making a glowing "bargraph" using fluorescent tubes.
Making real lava flows in your back yard. Needed: modified kiln, old hard lava
Can you kill cellphones by handling them? Put a curse on someone's iPad by glaring at them? Explode overhead light bulbs (but only when angry?) Tell your story here.
REPORT YOUR UNUSUAL PHENOMENA: posted teleportation stories.
When you were about to be struck by a car in the middle of the road, did you wink out of existence? OR DID THE CAR?!!!
Totally excellent (and hilarious) tutorials for intro electronics. Eleven thumbs up (that's one thumb-ier!)
Kick-ass shorts from ELECTRIC SHEEP COMIX.
It DOESN'T turn you into a giant blueberry.
A secret stash of VIRUSCOMIX SUBNORMALITY, hidden away from all!
Earth EM resonance, the Schumann cavity modes, are all down at VLF audio frequencies. How could a giant Tesla coil be sending out 8Hz or 1,000Hz or whatever? Easy: by using a Tesla Coil as the power supply for a Tesla Coil. Don't use 60Hz power to generate 100KHz, instead do it backwards.
Boundary layer effects are WEEEEEIRD!
Metal Hurlant lives! Moebus/Jodorowski teamup for still-not-in-production film. Hey try Kickstarter?!
Conway's Life simulation; computation and pixel display entirely simulated INSIDE CONWAY'S LIFE. Glider guns where the pixels are made out of glider guns (well, spaceship-guns actually.)
So, is our own universe complex enough that it can host an accurate simulation of our own universe?
FUNDING! A new organization supporting frontier/maverick science research. Normally any new scientific proposal which is the slightest bit unconventional will have little chance of attracting funding. The really left-field out-of-box ideas are never funded at all ...except here.
Yes, Tesla invented the radio or "wireless (UK)" technology used prior to the vacuum-tube era. Hertz discovered radio waves and verified Maxwell, but only explored UHF freqs in meter-scale experiments, while Tesla invented the grounded antenna, the kilowatt-output Spark Transmitter used by everyone, and he patented the basic radio system (the famous patents which struck down Marconi's.) Marconi stole Tesla's ideas, patented them in Europe, and used them to successfully broadcast across the Atlantic.
Agreed, Tesla had nothing to do with the transistor, instead his was the first patent for an electrical logic gate; the fundamental basis of all electronic computers. This blocked all later patent attempts, essentially putting computers in the public domain rather than under total control by IBM corp.

The "Intentionally Crude" science show!
The more glitz and hype, the fewer are the kids who'll actually try building these. See more info on this philosophy at http://amasci.com/amateur/vidlist.html
Very cool page about amateur microscopy/biology ...from students living in Guam! Pondwater microbes.
Suggested science project: turn your old unwanted electronics catalogs into mushrooms. Get those circuit jockies away from the bench and into the lab for some bio work.
