Star Trek LCARS Theme for Android Wear Smartwatches: WATCHH
Did you boldly go where few have gone before and got your hands on an Android Wear smartwatch? Your device is so freakin’ new it’s barely useful. But you can make it even more futuristic by giving it a 24th century look, thanks to Daniele Bonaldo and his LCARS-themed Starwatch watch face.

Squink Desktop Circuit Board Assembly Machine: Print & Pick & Place
We’ve featured a handful of 3D printers that can lay out conductive tracks on a variety of materials. But that’s just part of the process of making a circuit board; you’ll still need to place a variety of small parts on the board.

If Jason Were a DJ: Sound Reactive LED Mask

If Jason Were a DJ: Sound Reactive LED Mask
If Jason took a break from hunting people down and battling it out with Freddy Krueger and decided to become a DJ, then this is what he would put on instead of the hockey mask. Not that this sound-reactive LED mask has anything to do with the fictional character, but it’s very nature brings to mind none other than Jason Voorhees.

Catch a Pikachu Burger at Japan’s Pikachu Cafe
As if Japan didn’t have plenty of Pokémon-themed products already. We can add another to that list. The official Pikachu Cafe is opening this weekend in Tokyo. There you can indulge in all kinds of Pikachu themed foods.

MakerBot Replicator Available in Some Home Depot Locations

MakerBot Replicator Available in Some Home Depot Locations
I really like the idea of owning a 3D printer so I can build all sorts of cool items when I want. The catch for me is that I want to see how hard the machine is to use before I plunk down the money.

Princess Bride LEGO Dioramas Lets You Match Wits with a Sicilian

Princess Bride LEGO Dioramas Lets You Match Wits with a Sicilian
I have a well-established penchant for the The Princess Bride and LEGO constructs. Combine the two and you have my attention. Some folks had some builders at the Brickworld Chicago event cobbled together some awesome dioramas of scenes from the classic movie.

Chainmaille Running Shoes: Armor for Your Feet

Chainmaille Running Shoes: Armor for Your Feet
PaleoBarefoot’s $265 PRONATIV chainmaille running shoes are not particularly stylish, but they should protect you from tiny swords and daggers should they be aimed at your feet. Apparently they are supposed to feel like you are running barefoot, but somehow I doubt that.

Star Trek Phaser Remote Control Zaps TV Programs Back to the Delta Quadrant

Star Trek Phaser Remote Control Zaps TV Programs Back to the Delta Quadrant
ThinkGeek has just revealed one of its big toys for this year’s SDCC, and it’s a doozy. I always have thought of my TV remote as a zapper of sorts, so it only makes sense that you’d use a phaser to change channels.

3D Printed Nebula Scale Model: Do You Want to Print a Star Cloud?

3D Printed Nebula Scale Model: Do You Want to Print a Star Cloud?
With the right tools, you can 3D print almost anything: a quadcopter, an action figure version of yourself or even a pixel perfect replica of a painting. But a team of astronomers were able to print something that’s literally out of this world.

Star Trek Fan Turns His Basement into the Enterprise

Star Trek Fan Turns His Basement into the Enterprise
Anthony Sforza has way more Star Trek toys than I do. In fact, he has a collection valued at about $500,000 that includes some really cool costumes and props. I’m pretty jealous of Anthony right now.

3D Printed Failures: Cutting Edge Kitsch

3D Printed Failures: Cutting Edge Kitsch
When life gives you PLA, make 3D Printed Failures. Digital fabrication studio Bits to Atoms is cashing in on its mistakes by selling defective 3D printed objects. Because Goat Simulator. Ironically purchase 3D Printed Failures from Bits to Atoms for $6.66 (USD) each.

Kirk Was Here Cosplay: Captain Baby Daddy

Kirk Was Here Cosplay: Captain Baby Daddy
We know that Kirk didn’t discriminate when it came to romancing women, but he especially loved the green-skinned beauties. With that in mind, I present to you the best Star Trek cosplay ever. A pregnant Orion woman with a sign that says Kirk was here.

Carbon Nanotubes Used to Make World’s Darkest Material: Vantablack Is the New Black

Carbon Nanotubes Used to Make World’s Darkest Material: Vantablack Is the New Black
British nanoelectronics company Surrey NanoSystems claims it has invented the world’s darkest material. Made of tightly packed carbon nanotubes, the company’s Vantablack reportedly absorbs 99.96% of the radiation that hits its surface. The result is a material so dark it looks like, well, like nothing.

Hulu Saves Kenny: South Park Gets a New Streaming Home

Hulu Saves Kenny: South Park Gets a New Streaming Home
I used to watch some of the back catalog from South Park on Netflix and before I watched too many episodes of the show, it disappeared. I was rather annoyed at that fact. As it turns out the series is getting a new streaming home.

Adam Savage’s Awesome Man Cave Hits Google Street View

Adam Savage’s Awesome Man Cave Hits Google Street View
If you have ever watched an episode of Mythbusters, you know who Adam Savage is. He is the ginger that builds so many of the contraptions that smash myths – or prove them correct – on the show.

LEGO Tower Building Robot Will Earn the Wrath of The Man Upstairs

LEGO Tower Building Robot Will Earn the Wrath of The Man Upstairs
YouTuber Hknssn loves to create whimsical industrial robots using LEGO Mindstorms, like the paper airplane maker that we saw last year. His latest creation is a robot that makes towers by stacking prebuilt modules. This will inevitably lead to the Mindstorms speaking in different programming languages.
