Tick Rover Robot Kills Ticks Dead
Ticks are nasty. Actually, I think all bugs are nasty – but ticks are extra disgusting since they suck on your blood. They are also responsible for transmitting many diseases, some fatal. A team of researchers at the Virginia Military Institute have designed a robot that kills these blood suckers.

Doppelganger is a Jacket, Long Coat, and Sleeping Bag In One
It’s a jacket, it’s coat, no wait… it’s a sleeping bag and all of the above! The Doppelganger Outdoors Wearable Sleeping Bag might seem like a confusing article of clothing at first, but it’s actually extremely useful once you’re familiar with all the possible ways you can wear it.

9 Foot-Tall Killer Robot Unveiled at SDCC
WIRED, Stan Winston Studios, Legacy Effects, YouTube, and Conde Nast Entertainment all decided to get together and build something truly epic – a 9-foot, 9-inch-tall robot. Yeah, not my idea of a great idea that will benefit mankind, but it’s not like they asked me.

The Golf Cart Hovercraft: Not Your Father’s Hovercraft – Your Grandfather’s Hovercraft

The Golf Cart Hovercraft: Not Your Father’s Hovercraft – Your Grandfather’s Hovercraft
When I think of hovercraft, I think of James Bond on a military ride that hovers fast and zips all over the place – not a golf cart. Perhaps this is what retired spies drive on the weekend.

Reel-to-Reel Tape Deck Calculator Does Not Compute
Boy, I haven’t seen a reel-to-reel tape deck in years. After 8-tracks, cassettes, CDs, MiniDiscs and MP3s, we’re at least five generations past the everyday use of these things. And dekstop calculators? I haven’t used one in a very long time either.

AT-AT Groom’s Cake, Attack It with a Snowspeeder Fork
We’ve seen some impressive Star Wars cakes, but this AT-AT takes the proverbial cake. This thing looks amazing and the details are super nice – so nice that it doesn’t even look like a cake. It was made by Cake Central member ChrisTheCook for a friend’s wedding and it stands at over two feet-tall.

Instructables member kevinmakes wanted to have a copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 on his wall. The problem? That’s the comic book that introduced Spider-Man to the world, making it an extremely rare and expensive comic.

Have a Seat on Some Cushy Boulders

Have a Seat on Some Cushy Boulders
My dad’s car broke down on a mountain road when we were on our way to the family vacation house. Suffice it to say, my sisters and I spent a few hours sitting on rock-hard boulders while he tinkered with the engine.

WaterColorBot Paints Digital Artwork in Watercolor

WaterColorBot Paints Digital Artwork in Watercolor
Sometimes, I get the feeling that digital artwork lacks the personal touch that you find in traditional artwork. You can’t really see the strokes the artist made on the canvas, for one, and any errors or misplaced strokes are quickly edited out.

40 Foot Dragon Skull Shows up on a Beach

40 Foot Dragon Skull Shows up on a Beach
This is what it would look like if dragons actually existed and we uncovered their bones. This 40 foot dragon skull is amazing and scary. I would hate to run into this thing on the beach.

How to Make Your Own Batman Folding Batarang

How to Make Your Own Batman Folding Batarang
Have your butler clear off your work bench. Put your billion dollar company on hold! You have some weapons to make! Or you could just have Wayne Enterprises make these awesome batarangs. However, since most of us are not Bruce Wayne, we will just have to do it ourselves.

Darth Vader Bottle Opener, Force Choke Beer Caps Off
I’ve flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I’ve seen a lot of strange stuff, but I’ve never seen anything to make me believe that there’s one all-powerful bottle opener that can open anything.
