Spring this year seems to be short on sunshine. To compensate for that, today's post is full of shiny things. And butterflies. Butterflies are always a good addition.

Tilt Beam Flashlight
Cute build, a diffuser of some sort would be a nice addition though, unless used for interrogation purposes. (by [Zach DeBord], via Hackaday)
Soft Squeezable Flashlight

Macro Butterfly Wings
...look like miniature versions of wings. Fractals everywhere! (By Linden Gledhill, via Designboom)

Rainbows, unicorns and pixie dust coming next.

Fireworks, pancake breakfasts and BBQ lunches, cowboy hats, questionable choice in music ("We got both kinds - country AND western!"), and all-around crazy people. So it's fairly safe to say that we don't have […]

Cool Links Wednesday: Bike Lanes and Neu...

Oh the rain… Oh the 90% humidity… This is the monsoon that happens sometimes in Albertaland. The rain floods basements, frizzes hair, overflows rivers. What is doesn’t do is dryclean the basement carpets, straighten hair, and apply various agricultural procedures of soil draining. Neither it brings you cool links!
