Dronestagram Digs up Pretty Depressing Images of Where the Drones Hit
War isn’t always a bad thing – sometimes it’s been necessary for sweeping changes to take place. But it is, for the most part, a tragic time. Because aside from risking the lives of soldiers, there’s also the matter of taking away the lives of innocent civilians.

Master Chief Stained Glass is a Masterpiece of Halo Fan Art

If Batman Can Have a Batmobile, Why Can’t Doctor Who Have a TARDIS-Mobile?

If Batman Can Have a Batmobile, Why Can’t Doctor Who Have a TARDIS-Mobile?
While the TARDIS seems like a pretty decent way to travel through space and time, it’s not exactly the best vehicle for getting through rush hour traffic on the expressway. This ride seems like it might be a better mode of urban transportation, especially along with today’s best GPS navigation systems.

U.S. Navy to Replace Dolphins and Sea Lions with Robots
The U.S. Navy’s Marine Mammal Program began in the ’60s. The idea was that dolphins and sea lions would help defend harbors, retrieve sunken equipment and, even identify mines for deactivation. Now they have changed their mind and they want robots to do the dirty work.

Rain Shield Shelters You from the Rain and Protects from Splashes
Regular umbrellas shield you from the rain falling from the sky, but they don’t do anything to protect you from water splashing from the wheels of cars speeding through puddles in front of you. It’s annoying but unfortunately, there is little you can do about it.

People everywhere are having to cook a delicious meal for a bunch of greedy mouths this upcoming Thanksgiving, but don’t crack under the pressure. Don’t crack, friends, because you don’t need to hold all of that weight yourselves – I have a couple of tips to give!

Withings WS-30 Wireless Scale Slims Down

Withings WS-30 Wireless Scale Slims Down
I’ve known for the last couple of years that my home scale is a bit off, so I wonder if an expensive digital scale will do better. The idea of a smartphone-connected scale isn’t something new, but Withings new scale looks pretty spiffy and it’s supported by plenty of apps to help you keep track of your weight.

LEGO Time Twister 2 Clock: Time is Better the Second Time Around

LEGO Time Twister 2 Clock: Time is Better the Second Time Around
About a year ago, I spotted this cool mechanical LEGO clock called the Time Twister. It was a pretty amazing build, recreating the segmented display of an LCD clock, entirely with LEGO parts. Well its builder, Hans Andersson is back with a new version – the Time Twister 2.

iRock Rocking Chair Charges Your iPad While You Rock
It looks like modded rocking chairs are getting more popular this year. First, it was Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex’s Rocking-Knit chair that knitted while you rocked. And now it’s the iRock. If you’re not into knitting but love rocking anyways, then maybe the iRock is more up your alley.

LEGO Pop-up Building Makes Eyeballs Pop out of Their Sockets
Every time I think I’ve seen every possible LEGO contraption you could build, somebody comes along and makes something I’ve never imagined. This time, we’ve got a giant folding LEGO structure that works like a pop-up book.

I am… Zombie Iron Man

I am… Zombie Iron Man
Things are looking stark for Tony Stark. It seems as if some zombies have bitten through his armor and turned him into a Zombie. If Iron Man can be turned into a Zombie, what chance do the rest of us have?

KeySquare: A Keychain That’s Definitely Not for Squares

KeySquare: A Keychain That’s Definitely Not for Squares
I’ve lost plenty of keys, off carabiners as well, so I’m always looking for a more secure option for my keys. Unlike carabiner keychains, KeySquare wasn’t designed to help you climb mountains, but it was specifically made for carrying your keys.

Pip-Boy 3000 Made from Picture Frame 2012

Pip-Boy 3000 Made from Picture Frame 2012
Last year we saw a prototype for an unwearable Pip-Boy 3000, which involved using a smartphone to create a replica that was functional, or at least interactive. This hack is not as high tech, because it only uses a digital picture frame, but at least it’s wearable.

Movember Must: Man’s Face Stuff Mustache Wax
It’s that special month again, ladies and gentlemen. It’s the month that brings joy to all of those who are able to grow facial hair (and jungles under their pits for the children to play in.) You *who are of at least average intelligence* guessed it!
