LED Covered R/C Jet Lights up the Night
Watch remote-controlled jet planes is cool. Watching this LED covered R/C jet plane fly at night is a really beautiful thing. I don’t remember seeing any planes in the TRON movies, but I imagine a TRON plane would look something like this.

Police Box Kit Makes Your Fridge Cooler on the Outside
Doctor Who fans may remember this picture of a refrigerator that’s been modified to look like the TARDIS, or at least a traditional British police box. It turns out that the people who made that fridge are selling kits so you can have your own TARDIS fridge at home too.
