Review: Estes Proto X nano quadcopterJonathan Fincher
You may have noticed that we enjoy our quadcopters here at Gizmag, from the GPS-equipped Phantom 2 Vision to the palm-sized 1SQ V-cam. Recently though, we had a chance to try out a somewhat unusual style of quad in the form of the tiny Proto X from Estes. It may not have a laundry list of features under its belt, but the Proto X does hold the distinction of being the smallest quadcopter we've ever reviewed ... by a huge margin.

Acrylic BenderThis weekend I decided to make an acrylic bender. I got the idea from a video on the internet.
Construction:I bought a cheap hairdryer ($18) and removed the filament. I made the following measurements with a multimeter across the mains lead:
Fan 0 1 2 0 inf 115 95.5 Heater 1 inf 70.6 52.3 2 inf 61.6 42.9
All in all, I was impressed by the design of the hairdryer. The heater seemed to run in series with the motor, there was what looked like a bi-metallic thermostat that would cut out if the outlet was blocked, and there was a non-resettable thermal fuse as a last resort. It seems like that it would be quite difficult to start a fire or do damage with this.The construction consisted of having the heater elements inside U-channel aluminium. To either side I screwed a wooden board to make a flat work surface.
I cut a piece of aluminium U-channel to length, then used hot-glue and scraps of wood to seal the ends up. Mixing some plaster (50g plaster, 35g water) and pouring it into the trough made a nice heat resistant, electrically insulating base to run the wires on.

DIWire desktop machine bends wire into 3D sculpturesJonathan FincherOver a year ago, Pensa Labs caught our attention with its impressive DIWire Bender, a small machine that bends thick wires into elaborate 3D shapes by following simple vector drawings. Since then, the company has been refining the wooden prototype we saw before into a sleek fabrication device that's fit for consumers. The result is a more compact, easier-to-use DIWire that can turn pieces of wire into creative 3D sculptures while sitting comfortably on a desktop.
