DIY: Flying Machine
Created my own pixel!insect out of spare parts from boxes. Test-run with rotating rotors (duh) and whirring sound effects. Wee– — –. (Couldn’t find parts to assembly a Spaghetti Monster/God, though)

Not by the Wright Brothers, but Lycette Bros.

DIY: Miniature Automata
Presented with even more confusing array of mechanical parts (whose functions and movements could be observed from the critters crawling/swimming/whizzing around behind a red book of series The Modern Compendium of Miniature Automata. Linked directly to the prototype: Autophal octovae — part of my Take-Over-the-World agenda.
