Some of my recent make it projects!









Current Interests





Nose Stent - to remove nose block.


I used a simple paperclip and bent it into a shape shown above. I insert in the nostril that I get block very often disturbing my sleep. It is two months since I started using this. Peaceful sleep, no more waking up and sitting erect or pacing to relieve the block!!!

Next:I plan using superelastic SMA to make one of these so that it is possible to shape adjust!!


Automatic Seat lifter


It is often a problem we face in many places when using western toilets. People use the seat and dirty it. They dont lift it leading to hesitation to use the toilet. This simple contraption helps lift the seat once the person gets up.


Could have used a spring but a weight is more efficient since it is a static system.
