My roommates and (to a lesser extent) I drink a lot of wine, and with nowhere in town that recycles corks we really didn't want to just throw them away. We'd been letting them pile up in a glass container on our endtable, but then I had the idea to #upcycle them. With just the corks, some hot glue, and an unneeded plywood shelf taken from my hand-me-down desk, I made this corkboard! We still haven't nailed down a spot to hang it yet, but that's coming soon
Tip: Cutting the corks in half doubles your surface area and makes them much easier to glue

Does any tech-minded person know of a machine or a semi-simple build that a tech noob could make which would transform rain into energy? I'm currently thinking of a gutter/waterwheel system hooked up to a battery (covered) in some fashion.

I once found a place with huge stacks of pallets and crates on craigslist, then used them to build garden boxes and a rainwater collector (pics below!)
