Ora, a pedido de vários Engenhocas, cá vai um Instructable para vocês aprenderem a esboçar as vossas Engenhocas...
Acreditem-me, não há substituto a saber desenhar o que pretendem fazer;
Horas num Simulador, dias a procurar alguém que fabrique e/ou monte a vossa maquineta, a tudo isso se pouparão, se souberem fazer um Esboço do que querem, e aqui está como o aprenderem:
Sketching & Drawing Lessons
Introduction:I meet a lot of people in my job who say 'I wish I could draw like that' and they're surprised when I say 'Ok, I can teach you if you want'.We often assume that drawing is a talent, something we are born with, some people can do it, some people can't.But this is isn't exactly true; I failed my 'O'Level Art when I was 16. [don't get me wrong I'm not complaining I failed because I wasn't very good] and I didn't draw anything for a few years, why would I? I wasn't very good. To paraphrase a famous quote 'You don't know you are no good at something you enjoy doing, until someone tells you.' If I didn't know I was no good I'd have probably kept going and kept getting better. A couple of years later doodling away I realised I loved sketching and drawing and I wished I hadn't stopped and so I set out to teach myself how to become good at something I'd always wanted to be good at. I ended up becoming a design technology teacher/lecturer and teaching perhaps a hundred plus students these techniques.
Dica do nosso amigo e Colega Inventor, José Romeiro Abrahão, eis um Site que vos PAGA pelas vossas ideias de Faç-você-mesmo!
Como exemplo, cá vai este, como porem toda a malta a fazer Malas de Arrumação, das voccas caixas de Cartão!
How To Make A Little Cardboard Suitcase | Craft Projects
If you don’t know what to do with shoe boxes, you can recycle them into a sweet little suitcase! Kids will have fun playing with it and hiding treasures in it! You can also use it as an original storage unit! Up cycling is a fun and easy way to bring the kids together while teaching them valuable lessons about taking a green initiative. Save money this summer by teaching your children the art of up cycling. All you need are a few items you may already have laying around the house. Create beautiful printed “suitcases” in no time with our awesome how-to.
HummingBoard is set to take a bite out of Raspberry Pi
Since shipping in 2012, Raspberry Pi boards have found themselves the brains of such diverse DIY projects as a mobile phone, a touchscreen computer or even a treat dispenser for the family dog. Now there are three new boys in town that promise faster processing, more system memory and more connectivity options. Yes indeed, SolidRun's new HummingBoard family has all the makings of a serious Pi killer.
The baby of the bunch is the basic i1 board, which features a SolidRun scalable micro System-on-Module (microSOM) that's home to a Freescale i.MX6 1 GHz single-core processor based on the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture, GC880 graphics with support for OpenGL and 512 MB of DDR3 RAM. There's no internal storage, but the computer comes with a microSD slot for loading in platforms like Ubuntu, Android, freeBSD or XBMC.
The i2 version is the i1's more powerful sibling, with a microSOM module sporting a 1 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM. The i2eX model ups the ante again, coming with better graphics, 1 GB of faster RAM, and mini-PCIe and mSATA II connectivity. Gigabit Ethernet is also on offer, along with internal powered USB, an LVDS display out (with support for LCD and touchscreen panels), stereo analog out and microphone input to go with the SPDIF coax digital output, real-time clock support, and an IR receiver.
Já incluído no PCLinuxOs, vem este bacana deste Simulador de Física, o Step, onde podem esboçar as vossas Alavancas, Máquinas, Molas, e etc.
Interactive Physics Simulator for KDE 4
If you’ve installed KDE 4.1 as I did in this post, then Step will be available in the repository. Step is a part of the KDE project, so if you’ve installed KDE from another source it shouldn’t be difficult to find.
