    So, i have an altoids tin.

    (I love those things)

    What should i make with it?

    Something useful, no survival kits.

    Something electronic

    Thx, SwiftSkii

    If you've got a Canon with a headphone jack type cable release, try an Altoids Tin remote. I made one a while ago and don't go shooting without it.

    Make an Apple device charger within it, there is people who have made it and made it work.

    Do what I'm doing - make a coil gun. I'm currently building one with a 5 inch barrel and 3 330v capacitors inside a small nerf gun. An altoids tin is smaller than the gun I'm using but because of the regular shape it should fit the parts quite nicely

    Thx guys.

    I in fact have considered most of those things.

    Had the tin for a month.

    Yeah I too am thinking about making a nerf gun. It will fire 1 bullet and be powered by a tiny pump and airtank will a ball valve release.
    That's a good idea...

    Brb, going to the patent office for that.
