Papercraft Crysis Nanosuit 2.0 is a True Work of Art

miraDry Zaps Your Pits to Stop Sweating
Sweating is part of the summer. No matter where you are, especially with the heatwaves of this year, you’ve probably sweat quite a bit over these last few months.

I’ve always wanted to play with R/C aircrafts, but even with my “easy to fly” AR.Drone 2.0, I find myself crashing the thing into walls and the ceiling indoors.

Super Mario Spiral Clock: Down the 16-Bit Hole
