About 6 weeks ago Build your own air conditioner for eight bucks #DIY
http://adafru.it/b117112

Check out this awesome DIY air conditioner from HouseholdHacker – perfect for summer!

Don’t spend hundreds of dollars on a portable A/C for your home, just build one for $8 dollars and 10 minutes of your time! You can pick up a Styrofoam cooler for about $4 at most stores. Dryers vents cost about $2 dollars a pop. All you need after that is an old fan and some frozen bottles of water!

Once your box is completed following the instructions in the video, simply add the frozen bottles of water and go to town. My home was 78 degrees and after running the box in the living room for a couple hours it dropped into the 60′s which is fantastic on a hot day!

About 6 weeks ago Dancing Shadow Sculptures by Dpt. and Laurent Craste #arttuesday
http://adafru.it/dxu

Parade, an art installation from Laurent Craste and Dpt., reminds us of the dancing furniture from Beauty and the Beast. From thisiscolossal:

At first glance the piece looks rather mundane: two misshapen porcelain vases sit atop a pedestal inside a wood cube, lit from above by an industrial light. But move the light and suddenly the magic happens as shadows projected from the vases animate to life. What a fun piece…

About 12 weeks ago CATable by Hao Ruan offers a work surface for cats and their owners #ArtTuesday
http://adafru.it/b111311

CATable by Hao Ruan offers a work surface for cats and their owners. From Dezeen:

Milan 2014: holes and tunnels in the top of this wooden desk by Hong Kong-based designer Hao Ruan of LYCS Architecture have been designed to provide a playground for cats….

Made from a solid piece of wood, the table top features a series of openings and tunnels that have been carved out by hand to create spaces for a cat to satisfy its curiosity and allow pet owners to share their work space with a feline friend.

“People who live with cats always have these kind of experiences: putting away the cat from your laptop was like a sentimental ritual of temporary farewell,” explained the design team at LYCS Architecture in a statement. “A proper sized hole could be so irresistible to cats. Their curiosity would be greatly satisfied through repetitively exploring the unknown path behi

About 22 hours ago Colorful street art on the train tracks of Portugal by Artur Bordalo #ArtTuesday
http://adafru.it/dJr

Via Colossal.

If the artwork is on train tracks, is it still called street art? Rail art? Either way, we’re loving this series by Portuguese artist Artur Bordalo in which he cleverly converts the horizontal lines of train tracks into a canvas. The series, which have been popping up on railways throughout Portugal since early this year, often use bright, neon colors which create a nice contrast between the dull gray rocks and tracks. Each work is accompanied by subtle titles that can be playful but also harbor critical or cynical undertones.

About 9 weeks ago PiTap: Automated packet capture on a Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi
http://adafru.it/b113777

The PiTap is a device I put together with the intention of being a pentesting tool, but it has also found utility in facilitating data collection as part of my Industrial Control System (ICS) security research. I need to do a lot of packet captures; often at multiple points within a network. This can be quite a time consuming process to set up and configure, so I set out to put together what I like to call a “plug-and-capture” device.

Design Requirements

-Small and portable.
-The bridge and packet capture would start automatically on boot.
-It didn’t need to run on mains power.
-Minimal hardware configuration allowing the SD card to be cloned and run on multiple stock devices.

Hardware

-Raspberry Pi.
-USB power supply. I used the battery from my Wifi Pineapple MK4 battery; however, I have had success in running it from a cheaper Duracell
