3d printable model of the CommLock device from Space 1999. When I was a kid, I used to dream about having and using the Commlock in daily life to talk to my friends and family. Now everyone has one in the pocket, lucky us :D.
I know that there are already many models available for the commlock. Mine is different with not only for having more details from the outside, but also having more details at the inside to assemble and hold electronics to make a running model.
In the British science fiction television series “Space: 1999,” the “commlock” is a multifunctional communication and personal data device used by the characters on Moonbase Alpha. The series, which aired from 1975 to 1977, is set in the near future, where the Moon has been turned into a deep space research facility.
You can get the 3d printable model of the CommLock device from here. This model has 33 parts to enable you to build your own CommLock. The model is designed with interior details for installing circuitry, a TFT display or any other system inside, making your Commlock to actually run. there are numerous free projects on the net suitable for this purpose.

The Old City Model is done during my stay in the medieval European city of Orleans/France this summer, it should be similar to many other medieval cities around the world. You can buy the multi-part model from here. This multi-part model has got interior gears, motor and battery mounts to build a living city with spinning carousel, flowing traffic of cars and boats, even flying choppers, baloons or blimps.

This article is about building a working and usable PC in a 20y/o Mac Classic Case…
The original mac of 84 was such a joy, it was so nice, small, cute and easy to use. It was an instant hit for me that I fell in love in first sight.
Then later I continued growing up and went to a technical Lycee’s computer department. The school was tough but working on computers, learning about them was worth it.
I was lucky enough to be among the few who unpacked the very first mac classic imported to my country during my student apprenticeship in high school around 90 – 92. The first difference from the original mac was the machine coming to life with the sound of a fan. I worked on the machine for some weeks during the apprenticeship. I liked it so much that it visited my youth dreams of all my teenage years several times.
Then years passed. Now I’m a professor in a fine arts university in Istanbul / Turkey and my lectures are all around technical stuff, electromechanics etc. trying to give some engineering understanding to industrial design students. I have also got some free time to make stuff, so i visit instructables frequently.
In one of that visits, I’ve searched for mac projects and saw gmjhowe’s project about upgrading a 84 macintosh to run OS X Snow Leopard and liked it a lot. The same thing was in my mind for maybe 10 years but I hadn’t seen anyone doing a similar thing. The project inspired me enough to start my own Mac. Though I liked mac classic more than the 84 Mac, I’ve planned to use a classic case.
After a search that lasted 3 months, I’ve found my classic in a local ebay 😀 for 30$ and converted it into Mawi, the MAcintosh that runs WIndows XP. If you want to build something similar, than this instructables might be helpful for you. Continue reading.
Naval warfare has seen numerous innovative and devastating weapons throughout history, each designed to gain a strategic advantage over the enemy. One such weapon, born out of desperation during World War II, was the Kaiten suicide submarine. With their primary purpose being to cause maximum destruction by sacrificing their own crew, these submarines represented a tragic chapter in naval warfare.
Origins and Development: The Kaiten suicide submarines were developed by the Imperial Japanese Navy towards the end of World War II. Facing a deteriorating military situation and in dire need of unconventional tactics, the Japanese sought ways to counter the overwhelming naval power of the Allied forces. Inspired by the successful deployment of human-guided torpedoes, known as the “kaiten” or “return to heaven,” the concept of the Kaiten submarine was born.

Project 908 Triton-2 small submarine was a highly classified project during the Cold War, and some mystery still surrounds the project. Museum display exemplars and models depict an entirely enclosed vessel with a vestigial conning tower of sorts and various portholes for surface navigation.
Tasks solved by the midget submarine “Triton-2” include covert transportation underwater, disembarkation and return of combat swimmers when they perform special tasks of the Navy in coastal areas. Project 908 “Triton-2” developed by CPB “Wave” St. Petersburg. Development of the project began in 1970, and in 1974 the first prototype was made. Triton-2 submarines were in service with the Soviet navy from 1975 to the 1990s.

The USS Thresher, a nuclear-powered submarine of the United States Navy, stands as a testament to the bravery and dedication of those who serve in defense of their country’s freedom. Commissioned in 1961, this remarkable vessel was not only a technological marvel of its time but also an embodiment of the unwavering commitment of its crew. Though tragedy struck on April 10, 1963, resulting in the loss of the USS Thresher and all 129 crew members, it remains an indelible part of naval history and a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made to ensure our security.
