I have always thought that things which are transparent are more fun.
Preferably if their transparentness exposes some interesting bit of
equipment which is not normally visible.
Therefore: Plexaglass is More Fun(tm).
Ok... so nothing interesting is visible... but we can see if the paper has
arrived in the morning without climbing all the way up the driveway to look
into an opaque mailbox.
Transparent Pop Dispenser:
This was more an exercise in complexity.
This is my biggest transparent project to date. Everything in this machine
which could be transparent is. This machine is named stegbot, see my
Toys page for more information.
