This Is What It Looks Like When a Hawk Kicks a Quadcopter’s Ass

This Is What It Looks Like When a Hawk Kicks a Quadcopter’s Ass
The FAA is looking at new guidelines for drone operation, and a man is being taken to court for shooting down a drone that flew over his property, so we’re still not quite sure what laws are going to be in effect regarding these unmanned flying aircraft, even though they’re not really at all different from existing R/C aircraft; people just freak out because the word “drone” is scary.

Woodworker Dave Stencil wants a zombie in every kitchen. He just wants to “make quality cutting boards that showcase your love for braaaaiiiins… and well prepared meals.” Well Dave, I don’t love the taste of brains, but I do love chopping zombies up, so I’ll get your cutting board anyhow.

Love beer? We all do. Well, now you can learn everything you ever wanted to know about beer by reading The Beer Book. Obviously you’ll want to read it while sober so you can absorb all of the amazing facts about this drink.

Dragon Tides: Because The World Needed A Bruce Lee Board Game

Dragon Tides: Because The World Needed A Bruce Lee Board Game
For me, the theme is a big part of what attracts me to a board game. Yes, I love good mechanics and I’ll gladly play Carcassone all day long, but building a cluster of tiny cities surrounded by roads that go nowhere and inaccessible churches does take me out of the game a bit.

Ping Pong Playing Robot Has Two Eyes, Three Arms and Lots of Mercy

Ping Pong Playing Robot Has Two Eyes, Three Arms and Lots of Mercy
Earlier this year I featured a homemade ping pong playing robot… or so I thought. It turns out that it was merely a hoax made by two animators. But this robot made by automation expert Omron is the real deal.

XCOM: The Board Game Is A Partially Digitized And More Complex Pandemic

XCOM: The Board Game Is A Partially Digitized And More Complex Pandemic
Pandemic is a great game. It’s a co-op game that forces players to really work together, and gives a collective sense of impending disaster. It’s such a good formula that it’s quickly turning into a genre, spawning games like Forbidden Island, and the god-awful World War Z game that was obviously never, ever play-tested.

Transformers Ornaments Have Light-up Eyes

Geeky Jack-o-Lanterns: Some Truly Smashing Pumpkins

Custom Castlevania SNES: Customvania

Custom Castlevania SNES: Customvania
Wow. Someone really loves the Castlevania games. That someone is artist Vadu Amka, who gave his old PAL SNES console a super stunning and creepy casemod makeover. Seriously, I feel like if you played this console, the dead would rise.

Magical Unicorn Drinking Horn Won’t Make You Immortal

Magical Unicorn Drinking Horn Won’t Make You Immortal
Unicorns are mythical creatures with a horn sticking out of their forehead. Everything I know about them I learned from watching Tom Cruise in Legend back in the ’80s. That means most of my knowledge is centered on not letting ugly trolls capture one and fix it.

Oh My Glob! Adventure Time Pet Toys

Oh My Glob! Adventure Time Pet Toys
If you have a litter of pups like Jake, here are some fun gifts for them. Adventure Time pet toys. Because really, we all know that Peppermint Butler deserves to be chewed on by a large dog.

Yaara Derkel’s ‘Coppelius’ Chair Casts a Shadow of Fright

Yaara Derkel’s ‘Coppelius’ Chair Casts a Shadow of Fright
A picture speaks a thousand words, but so does a shadow. At first glance, Yaara Derkel’s Coppelius chair doesn’t look like much. Sure, it has fancy cutouts on the rest and on the seat, but nothing too interesting or detailed that you’d actually consider it to be art.

Bandai Namco Unveils Star Wars Battle Pods Arcade Game

Bandai Namco Unveils Star Wars Battle Pods Arcade Game
Growing up, nothing in the world made me clean my room faster on a Saturday than the promise of lunch at Chuck E. Cheese. As soon as we got there, I headed straight for the Star Wars arcade game and spent all my tokens in about 10 minutes trying to dominate that game and blow up the Death Star.
