    Pretty amazing! Clearly he has way to much time on his hands.

    It reminds me of a similar clip I saw a few years ago. This one was (allegedly) a commerical for the Honda Accord. It was filled with similar style gadgets, all of them made of various Accord parts.

    Ah yes the Honda one - I have that somewhere among about 20Gb+ of vid clips!!!

    This one I had hoped to save but my ''swf grabber'' didn't latch onto it. So much goes on it needs watched more than once.

    Notice BTW - the excellent use made of Duct Tape LOL

    Yikes...way too much time on his hands!

    Impressive, but overkill. If you really wanted to open blinds, get a remote control and a motor!

    If you need some ideas, just ask. You should have seen what we did for some of our engineering projects in school!
