KiraVan – Is this the ULTIMATE BOV?

The Unimog is a Mercedes on Steroids. Combine German Tech with a need for the outdoors and you have a winner… Or, so we thought, until we saw this: It’s called the KiraVan.

Unimog Camper Construction 200710

The Experience More than 3 years ago, I purchased an Alaskan Camper for my mog. But, due to the demands of work and our travels, I did not have the time to be able to mount the camper. The basic plan was simple: measure the camper and the truck and build the frame in place on the truck bed to insure that it will fit. Right in the middle of the construction, the fires broke out in San Diego and LA areas. The photos below show what happened. The Miramar Air Show occurred early in the initial construction process and since I was outside with my camera, I got these shots of the USAF Thunderbirds as they performed.

Introducing... The Schwimmwagen Military Replica!

A “body tub” is the Schwimmwagen boat hull. The Schwimmer body tub is being built by an established boat builder who also has owned seven Schwimmwagens. He is using his experience with both boat building and restoring Schwimmwagens to build the Schwimmwagen hull. The first tub or hull we get will be for a customer who will be having us build it as a four wheel drive. The customer will be supplying the very scarce and costly four wheel drive components. Platypus amphibious 4x4 to land at under US$40,000. Like the Australian marsupial from which it takes its name, it isn't pretty, but it sure is functional.

With a top speed of 100 kmh on the road, it's not as fast as its celebrated fellow amphibians such as the Gibbs Aquada or Rinspeed Splash. But it is capable of seven knots on the water, can withstand heavy seas, and it's hardcore four-wheel-drive capabilities will get you just about anywhere you can imagine going. Most remarkable though is the price - when production starts in mid-2005, the Platypus will sell for less than US$40,000. How to Create Your Life Story Exactly How You Want it to Be.

The Many Architectural Applications of Shipping Containers vol.7

As we already covered in our blog about container stores, they can be installed almost everywhere and are very likely to gather a lot of crowd. Some very well know companies have already set up a mobile restaurants and kiosks. In 2010 Subway had a shipping container restaurant on top of the five story Freedom Tower in New York. Subway established the restaurant for the construction workers who would otherwise have needed 45 minutes to get down from the construction.

As a new business idea, shipping container restaurants are an ideal low-cost choice. Project: Shipping Container Garage. Newly married, my wife and I have been house hunting for the past few months.

Project: Shipping Container Garage

Not satisfied with what I've been seeing in the housing market, most houses seem to have either a great garage and small house, or large house and small garage. Being the type of person to have multiple projects going on at once a small garage won't suffice. I spoke with a friend who has a 1,500 sq. ft. shop with 20 ft ceilings to clear his lifts and with concrete, pre-fabbed metal building he assembled and wired himself, he still managed to spend over $25,000 Determined to maximize my dollar per sq ft, I've decided to start planning out my garage so that when my wife and I finally acquire some property I will already have the planning out of the way and all that will need to be done is to start putting together the garage. I've seen some cool things done with shipping containers, yes the 40 ft shipping containers you see on freight ships.

Use your smart phone to control your table lamp! (Arduino + Android Bluetooth Home Automation) I use Altium Designer to design this circuit, each part is straightforward, an AMS1117 5.0V voltage regulator gets 5V from a 9V battery, I like to use this kind of rechargeable 9V battery in my projects.

Also, I add a red LED in the circuit, when you turn on the switch it will give you a sign. You can see the typical application of AMS1117 in Picture 2, and you can use LM7805 substitute for AMS1117, since AMS1117 only gives this one footprint SOT-223, which it not that convenient if you build your circuit on breadboard(not the stuff you use to make bread :P Check out this link below: As for relay part, I use an opto-isolator to isolate the micro-controller circuit and the relay circuit, header P1 is used to connect to the relay, when D2 is set to be Low, the LED in this opto-isolator will turn on, current flows through the transistor in this opto-isolator to open another transistor Q1, which will allow the relay start to work.

Aquajeep - Amphibious 4x4 Kit Car. Welcome. How I built a Laptop / Notebook Computer Tray for my Toyota Tacoma Pickup. I love my Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. It is the perfect vehicle for me. I do a lot of traveling in it. I also go to a lot of estate sales and auctions in it. There's lots of cargo room in the back for the stuff I buy, and with the topper in the bed, I can even camp in the truck. I usually carry a laptop computer with me when I travel to keep in touch, and to check what things are worth before buying them at estate sales, yard sales or bidding in auctions. And before you all start writing me and saying how unsafe it is to use the computer while driving, don't panic.

I was sitting in my truck and thinking about how to mount a laptop tray on the cheap, when I noticed the cup-holder in the center of the console. I drew up my idea. A trip to the local mega homecenter store was necessary to pick up the parts I'd need to build the tray. The 2 inch PVC coupler is an almost exact fit into the top of the cup-holder. Next I test-fitted the arm in the cup-holder. Pros & Cons of the laptop tray: Ford Work Solutions Overview. Top 10 Shipping Container Tiny Houses.
