Teardown Lab - Robot Arm Repair
Can I fix this mechanical wonder of science - that my kids broke?
Obviously this isn't a real robot arm, but there is no reason you could not simply bolt it onto an actual robot and hook it up to a servo. I guess its a pretty good starting point really. If you had individual strain relievers on each finger you would make something that groups quite evenly!

Teardown Lab - Ultimate Chrysler Jeep Bluetooth Radio Hack
Want to make your own Bluetooth hands-free interface? you can, its easy. Don't waste money on expensive kits, just build your own!
As you can see this is for a radio that did not even support a wired Aux connection, using the same technique you can add a wired or BT audio hookup to any radio with an optical drive.
Look for the MBC05-CAR-AT module and you can make as many as you like!

Teardown Lab - Food Temperature Probe
Oh look, another broken thing for me to try and unbreak. I sense a pattern here. hmm
The thermistor probe part is quite interesting, quite nice to have this to shove into stuff, like logging the temperature of soil or something?
Save yourself the bother, do not try and fix these, just get a new one from Amazon!
