Dragon Grip Turns You into a Virtual Bruce Lee

Dragon Grip Turns You into a Virtual Bruce Lee
Were big fans of old-school kung fu movies around my house. My daughter and I particularly like Bruce Lee. The downside is that each time we watch a Bruce Lee flick, she stalks around the house and jumped out at any given moment with a Lee-like HI-YAH and punches me in the junk.

LEGO Batman X-Wing Fighter: The Dark Night Meets the Light Side of the Force

LEGO Batman X-Wing Fighter: The Dark Night Meets the Light Side of the Force
Have you ever wondered what it might look like if Batman piloted an X-Wing and destroyed the Death Star? Sure, we all have. I imagine it would look something like this.

R2-D2 Rain Barrel Collects Water Without Swimming through the Dagobah Swamp

R2-D2 Rain Barrel Collects Water Without Swimming through the Dagobah Swamp
I live in an area where being green and recycling isn’t really a big thing. In fact, I lived here for 10 years before I knew we even had a recycling center. In some communities, though, the push to be green is much more substantial.

Popping 100 Balloons with a Laser Pointer Is Just as Cool as It Sounds

Popping 100 Balloons with a Laser Pointer Is Just as Cool as It Sounds
One of the coolest things you can do with a high-powered laser pointer is to burn small objects and pop things. Those lasers are sort of like high-tech magnifying glasses from back in the day. One geek has taken one of the Spyder III lasers from Wicked Lasers and set out to break a world record.

Ned Stark Cake Pops: Deliciously Decapitated

Ned Stark Cake Pops: Deliciously Decapitated
If you’re a Game of Thrones fan like me, you’re probably still missing Sean Bean as Ned Stark this season, despite the sheer awesomeness of the show. While it’s highly unlikely that even Melisandre’s dark sorcery could bring back Eddard, you can still remember him the next time you have dessert.

Gigawatt the TimeFormer: Where He’s Going, He Won’t Need Roads

Gigawatt the TimeFormer: Where He’s Going, He Won’t Need Roads
Transformers scholars will be quick to point out that there’s already an Autobot that transforms into a DeLorean DMC-12, but let’s out-point them with this point. Which would you rather have: Swindler, a weakling whose most notable achievement is a stint as a pro wrestling manager or Gigawatt, a mighty warrior that can travel through time when he hits 88MPH?

Arduino WiFly Mini: Real Virtual Racing

Arduino WiFly Mini: Real Virtual Racing
A couple of years ago we heard about Racer, an analog take on arcade racing games: instead of just controlling a virtual car, the game had you control an R/C car using the traditional arcade setup.

New Assassin’s Creed III Gameplay Footage is Full of Redcoats and a Bear

New Assassin’s Creed III Gameplay Footage is Full of Redcoats and a Bear
Check out this new video which shows off some new in game footage from Assassin’s Creed III. We’ve seen still images and teasers before, but there are plenty of new things to see in this 3 minute-long clip.

It Doesn’t Hate You, But This DIY Portal Turret Will Still Shoot You

It Doesn’t Hate You, But This DIY Portal Turret Will Still Shoot You
Sure, we’ve seen the odd Portal turret here and there, but this one actually shoots. It was created by a Penn State University student for his Advanced Mechatronics class’ final project. Just like in the game, it tracks its victims using a camera and shoots at them.

Question Mark Block Cutting Board 1-Ups Your Kitchen

Question Mark Block Cutting Board 1-Ups Your Kitchen
Mario fans looking for the perfect thing for their kitchens will want to grab one of these Question Mark Block cutting boards, just right for dicing and slicing any type of mushroom (or other choppable food) you can throw at it.

Japanese Robot Guy Creates an Amazing Transforming Car

Japanese Robot Guy Creates an Amazing Transforming Car
Watch below as Kenji Ishida’s transforming car changes from a car to a fully working robot just like in the kids cartoons – with no help from Michael Bay’s effects team. We’re not quite sure if it is a Autobot or a Decepticon, but it is 100% awesome.

Etcher Case Turns iPads into a Working Etch A Sketch

Etcher Case Turns iPads into a Working Etch A Sketch
There have been Etch A Sketch cases out there before, but this is the first that I’ve seen that’s actually functional. The Etcher case will transform your iPad into a working Etch A Sketch, albeit in a digital version.

Anti-Wi-Fi Wallpaper Keeps Nosy Neighbors off Networks

Anti-Wi-Fi Wallpaper Keeps Nosy Neighbors off Networks
Unless you vary your passwords often, it’s possible that some tech-savvy neighbors have figured out the password to your Wi-Fi home network, and they could be using it to download massive amounts of data, porn and pirated movies, or to snoop on your personal network.

Skyrim Alduin Birthday Cake: The World Eater Gets Eaten

Skyrim Alduin Birthday Cake: The World Eater Gets Eaten
The quality of this Skyrim Alduin birthday cake is amazing. It barely even looks like a cake. It looks more like an awesome figure that you could buy. Vera from Baking Obsession made this cake for her son’s birthday, modeled it after a sculpture from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition, to look just like Alduin the dragon.

Man Implants Magnets on Wrist to Hold iPod Nano, Must Have Not Heard of Straps

Man Implants Magnets on Wrist to Hold iPod Nano, Must Have Not Heard of Straps
…then again, that’s like saying people who like permanent tattoos must have not heard of marker pens. Whatever the case, no, you are not on The Onion. Body piercer Dave Hurban really did install four magnets on his wrist, and yes, mounting an iPod Nano on that wrist is one of the reasons (if not the only reason) that led him to do it.

Life-Size Avengers Weapons (and a Shield) Assembled out of LEGO

Life-Size Avengers Weapons (and a Shield) Assembled out of LEGO
LEGO enthusiast and Avengers fan Ken Robichaud made replicas of some of the weapons of the Avengers using LEGO. They’re 1:1 scale, meaning he can wield them and use them for cosplay. Although because of their material it’s all too easy to go Hulk smash on them.
