Omniscent Siri 3D Printed iPhone Cover: The Ghost in the Machine
Sure, Siri can be bossy or frustrating at times, but it’s certain that she’s safe to stay in iOS 6  (and probably iPad 3 and the iTV, too.) In tribute to the digital personal assistant, 3D printing company Shapeways has assembled a group of artists to shed new light on Siri and her impact in our lives.

Terebi no Te Remote Control: Channel Changer, Back Scratcher or Nose Picker?

Charlie Brown Really is a (LEGO) Blockhead

Charlie Brown Really is a (LEGO) Blockhead
I have been a fan of Charlie Brown going back to my youth with the Peanuts Halloween and Christmas specials. I never really liked how Lucy and the other characters treated Charlie though, they were always so mean.

Halo Master Chief Helmet Made from Mountain Dew Cans

Halo Master Chief Helmet Made from Mountain Dew Cans
Gamers thrive on caffeine, so they drink a lot of Mountain Dew. If you’ve been playing Skyrim lately and treating it like a full time job you probably have empty cans of the stuff all over your room right now.

Star Wars Figures Made from Doll Parts: More Freaky Than Mos Eisley Cantina

Star Wars Figures Made from Doll Parts: More Freaky Than Mos Eisley Cantina
These freaky looking Star Wars toys mixed with doll parts aren’t exactly my thing, but I have to give them credit for their creepiness. There’s nothing more disturbing than dolls and when you play Doctor Frankenstein by mixing them with other parts.

3D Printed Guitars Rock the House

3D Printed Guitars Rock the House
If you ask me, 3D printing is the future of small-scale and short-run manufacturing. Assuming that the technology can come down in cost and increase in speed, many of the smaller items we use will eventually be 3D printed – at least custom stuff, like these awesome 3D printed guitars by Olaf Diegel.

Digitar: Revolutionizing the Future of the Electric Guitar

Digitar: Revolutionizing the Future of the Electric Guitar
One of my favorite instruments is the guitar, although I never really learned how to play it all that well. I’m constantly fascinated with the people who do, however, and even more fascinated by people who have actually thought up ways to modernize the instrument.

Soap Chess Set: Dirt, Checkmate!
We’ve seen a chess set made of chalk; here’s another set with pieces that are also consumable but are more durable – a chess set made of soap. You won’t get a stalemate with this fragrant set amirite?

X-Babies: Before They Were X-Men

X-Babies: Before They Were X-Men
I don’t remember the exact issue in which the X-Men became babies, but I seem to remember seeing them as such, for a short while at least. Regardless, illustrator Skottie Young had his own vision of the super-powered tots and redesigned some of the classic X-Men as babies.

Openwound Prosthetics Transform Your Legs From Fine to Bloody Fine

Openwound Prosthetics Transform Your Legs From Fine to Bloody Fine
The biggest wound I ever had when I was a kid was about two inches in diameter. It hurt, it looked gross, and I probably cried buckets whenever my mom would change the dressing. But those nasty looking open wounds you see on this girl’s knees down below?

Console Wars Veteran Pins: for Achievements in the Field of Gaming
We’ve featured Supermandolini’s sweet military-style NES pin before. It turns out that the design firm actually made a few more designs of the pins and calls the collection the Console Wars Veteran series, representing both the grizzled vets and the high-tech rookies of console gaming.

LEGO Space Shuttle Flies High into the Stratosphere

LEGO Space Shuttle Flies High into the Stratosphere
Last week, we told you about an astronaut aboard the ISS who built a LEGO model of the ISS in space. Turns out those aren’t the only LEGO bricks to leave this Earth and head toward space.

This image of a candelabra in the shape of Godzilla has been making its way around the web recently, and it is about the most awesome thing I’ve laid eyes on in a long time.
