Happy April Fool’s Day!

We challenge you to plan out the most epic prank this April Fool’s. If you’re running low on ideas, check out the Prankster Skill for more projects like this head in a jar illusion. Using a photo editor, blend two images together to create a flat image of a head, laminate it, and submerge it in a jar.  When the flattened image is inserted into the curved jar, the water distorts it - giving it the illusion of a decapitated head in a jar of preserving fluid.

Have fun!

The DIY Team spent this past weekend at the Berkeley Art Museum hacking sounds using MaKey MaKeys and Quartz Composer. Kids used construction paper and tin foil to create their own one of a kind musical pad/keyboard and one kid even managed to create a track using his face. Make your own weird sounds and become a Hardware Hacker.
