Reddit turned me on to this story – IKEA hacking. I’m not the biggest fan of the Swedish giant but I did find this New York Times story rather amusing. With all the IKEA products in the Kinnon household, perhaps I could do a little hacking myself.
The story also turned me onto the Instructables website, “created by M.I.T. Media Lab alumni as a forum for its users to share knowledge about how to make or do practically anything, including, as a glance at the home page the other day revealed, a quick banana nut bread and “hacking a toilet for free water.”” Way too cool – I’ve bookmarked it, as it has lots of great projects that will work here in the loft… though I won’t be hacking the toilet anytime soon.
