Children + LEGOs = Japan within Japan
The modern LEGO brick was patented in 1958 – 54 years ago. I’ve only been around for 28 of those 54 years, and in my lifetime what creative minds and sheer ingenuity can do with LEGOs continues to amaze me.

LEGO Underwater Robot: Insert Brick and Sink Joke Here

LEGO Underwater Robot: Insert Brick and Sink Joke Here
I was very impressed by the LEGO Omniboat, but apparently you can take LEGO vehicles even deeper. An engineering student made this remote controlled underwater robot for a school project. I expect bricks to sink, but I was surprised to see batteries and circuits fare well underwater.

Bat-Signal String Art Calls the Dark Knight with Craft

3D Printed Portal Gun Doesn’t Print Portals
We’ve seen a handful of beautiful replicas of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, but this replica by deviantART member Melissa aka techgeekgirl is special because most of its exterior parts were 3D-printed based on files from the game itself.

Intellego UV-Sensing Wristband: Never Get Fried by the Sun Again
Tanning can be dangerous, especially if you fall asleep on the beach while soaking in some rays. These UV-sensing wristbands will let you know when you’ve had too much sun. Once you’ve had your fill, they change colors to let you know when to cover up.

Neogeo X Gold Coming for $199.99 – Is it a Console or Handheld? It’s Both!

Neogeo X Gold Coming for $199.99 – Is it a Console or Handheld? It’s Both!
I can remember years ago standing in the game store in the mall playing the demo NeoGeo machine and wanting one so bad I could hardly stand it. I remember that original NeoGeo arcade system console being insanely expensive for the time.

Floating Frisbee Could Fly 100 Feet or More
I’ve never been all that good at throwing a frisbee. On occasion, I’ll get off a good shot, but it usually goes like 15 or 20 feet then peters out or takes a violent turn off course.

Q*bert Pillow Probably Makes Weird Noises When You Sit on It

Q*bert Pillow Probably Makes Weird Noises When You Sit on It
As retro video games go, Q*bert wins the award for the strangest protagonist and sound effects in my book. If Q*bert was one of your favorite arcade games of the 1980s, then you’ll probably dig these pillows too.
