How is it that refill canisters for air horns costs four times as much as butane canisters? Ariel was not happy with the added expense and took matters into his own hands creating a butane horn with flames. While this is not his first butane hack, he has stepped into a larger world of noisy flame throwers. And if you think this duct-taped flaming air horn is a little shady, check out some of my other favorite flaming noise projects.
Turn a backpack into a portable, solar-powered Wi-Fi hotspot, and share a high-speed connection anywhere

I love the fact that more and more devices are sporting built-in Wi-Fi—the Sony PSP, smartphones, even Kodak’s EasyShare-One digital camera. The lone hitch: Wi-Fi is useless without a hotspot. Sure, thousands of spots are available, but few are free, and coverage is far from ubiquitous. What if you could marry the short-range power of Wi-Fi with the huge coverage areas of high-speed cellular services such as EV-DO to create a portable hotspot? You could use any Wi-Fi-enabled gadget anywhere you’ve got a cell signal.
