Found this project and thought it was cool. It's too costly for me, but I thought some of you might appreciate it. I went through the post and grabbed the OPs comments.

RC KFC bucket aeroplane (magnus effect)

quote [ hey guys! well you requested it and here it is!!!!! The magnus force (effect) KFC bucket aeroplane. not sure why I chose KFC buckets though... they make poor rotating flettner wings! ]

Nifty. I had forgotten this was possible. Also, apparently you can just slap a plane together by cutting up a couple of pieces of foam now. Way different than all the gluing of little balsa pieces when I was a kid. #GetOffMyLawn

How I Made My Own iPhone - in China

quote [ I built a like-new(but really refurbished) iPhone 6S 16GB entirely from parts I bought in the public cell phone parts markets in Huaqiangbei. And it works!

I've been fascinated by the cell phone parts markets in Shenzhen, China for a while. I'd walked through them a bunch of times, but I still didn't understand basic things, like how they were organized or who was buying all these parts and what they were doing with them.

So when someone mentioned they wondered if you could build a working smartphone from parts in the markets, I jumped at the chance to really dive in and understand how everything works. Well, I sat on it for nine months, and then I dove in. ]

more details @ StrangeParts.com

Interesting stuff. If I had a contact in Shenzhen I'd love to try and buy the parts to build a bad ass VR headset for cheap.

Unrelated, but I've been playing around with my friend's HTC Vive for the past few weeks and loving it. If you've got a Microsoft store doing demos near you, you should really check it out.
