Welcome to the ElephantStaircase Wiki

What is Elephant Staircase?

Elephant Staircase is a wiki made up of pages detailing ridiculously sweet projects. These projects range from do-it-yourself projects, to hacking/modding (legally of course), to cool ideas for random stuff, to random cool things to do with your time and money. Basically a cookbook for the technically inclined, scientifically fascinated, geeks, nerds, mechancially curious, l33t, or just anyone who cares.
