    One of the ultimate DIY projects: Make a Car.

    I am about 25 percent into building a Factory Five Racing Type 65 Coupe. Along the way, I have met some very interesting people - and we all share the love of American Muscle Cars.

    It is not only the finished object in itself, I am enjoying the experience that comes with this challenging, long term project.

    Here is an example of what I mean:

    Student Project - Motorcycle Helmet

    Great exercise for programming, microcontrollers, sensors and Arduino. But --

    I wouldn’t put blue LEDs on there. You'd get pulled over by a cop. Not sure of the value or safety of the display inside the helmet. I wouldn’t be able to focus on the road than then down to see the display. And why have all those batteries when you could pull power from the bike?

    But still a great hands-on "learning tool"
