Punching Bag Keyboard: Key Sports
Last year we saw a hack that used a guitar as a computer keyboard. If you thought that was tedious, check out Bless’ workoutcomputer. The fashion and design studio made the installation 4 years ago alongside their winter collection, which included boxing glove-inspired mittens.

The Diorama to Endor All Ewok Dioramas

The Diorama to Endor All Ewok Dioramas
November 1st was Ewok Appreciation Day. Yeah, it was new to me too. C-3PO must have started it so he could be worshiped. Ewoks first appeared in 1983 in the movie Return of the Jedi. Many fans did not like them since they were obviously there for the kids and for Lucas to make toy money, though they’ve sort of grown on some folks over the years.

Door Monster Gives Treats to Trick-or-Treaters, Keeps an Eye on Them
What do you do for Halloween when your doors have convenient peephole windows? You use them to make yourself a cool costume so that you can hand out treats as a monster. That’s just what Kyle of White Lightning HQ did.

In 1992, amateur paleontologist Stan Sacrison discovered the bones of a Tyrannosaurus rex in South Dakota. The resulting skeleton was named after Stan. Made of 199 bones, STAN is world famous for being one of the most complete specimens ever found.

iBox Nano May Be the Cheapest and Tiniest 3D Printer in all the Land

iBox Nano May Be the Cheapest and Tiniest 3D Printer in all the Land
I have always thought that having a 3D printer would be really awesome, but they typically cost $1000 or more. They usually take up quite a bit of space, and my house is crowded with enough junk.

LEGO Classic Computer Set Concepts: Building Blocks

LEGO Classic Computer Set Concepts: Building Blocks
Professional LEGO builder Chris McVeigh is known for his miniature kits and building guides, including those of classic computers. But wouldn’t it be nice if there were LEGO sets of the machines you grew up with?

Raspberry Pi Car Computer: Raspboard

Raspberry Pi Car Computer: Raspboard
Harrison Kinsley aka sentdex had his Honda S2000 get with the times by installing a dash camera, a diagnostic tracker and more for a little over $100 (USD). Thanks to the Raspberry Pi, a bit of bargain hunting and some programming, Harrison says he may have saved himself about $900.

Clandestine: Like “Black Hat Oculus” But Much Prettier

Clandestine: Like “Black Hat Oculus” But Much Prettier
When I wrote about Black Hat Oculus at the beginning of the month, I loved the concept, but was not a fan of the game’s weird, headache-inducing visual style. That’s why I was happy to read about Clandestine today.

DIY Cyberpunk LED Eyes: I Ask for This

DIY Cyberpunk LED Eyes: I Ask for This
Want to make a Shadowrun, Deus Ex or any cyberpunk or sci-fi costume? Adaruit contributor Tully Jagoe has a great accessory that you might want to replicate. Tully made a head-mounted array of small LEDs that make his eyes – or whatever part of your face you put them over – appear to be made of light.

Metal Gear Solid Virtual Diorama: Solid Snake, REX, Y & Z
While most 3D models on Sketchfab are of characters or objects, member Glenatron proves that it can be a great platform to showcase dioramas as well. He recently shared his cute interactive homage to Metal Gear Solid, which depicts scenes from the PlayStation game.

This Orchestra Is Playing While Nomming on Uber-Hot Chilies

This Orchestra Is Playing While Nomming on Uber-Hot Chilies
Playing classical music at a professional level is very demanding. Of course, humans can multi-task at anything if they’re experienced enough, so Chili Klaus devised a devious tasting. He’s usually known for tasting chilies and giving notes on them himself, but this time he’s conducting the Danish National Chamber Orchestra while they eat “the worlds [sic] hottest chili peppers.”

R2-D2 Carry-on Is the Suitcase You’re Looking For

R2-D2 Carry-on Is the Suitcase You’re Looking For
Traveling by air can be a pain, there never seems to be an overhead bin near where I sit because some wanker puts three bags up there rather than putting some under their seat. While it won’t solve that problem, at least you can make traveling by air a bit more fun with this cool R2-D2 suitcase.

The International Space Station at Bedtime: In Space, No One Can Hear You Sleep

The International Space Station at Bedtime: In Space, No One Can Hear You Sleep
European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Alexander Gerst has been living in the International Space Station in the past five months. He’ll be back here later this month, but he sent his Halloween treat on time: photos of the ISS’ research center at bedtime.

Make Your Wi-Fi Network’s Name Unique with Unicode

Make Your Wi-Fi Network’s Name Unique with Unicode
Ars Technica accidentally discovered a quick and easy way to make your wireless network’s name aka SSID stand out. The tech blog found out that you can use Unicode characters in your network’s SSID. It’s not guaranteed to work with all routers and hardware though.

This Emergency Response Drone Carries a Defibrillator

This Emergency Response Drone Carries a Defibrillator
The ambulance drone was invented by 23-year old Dutch student Alec Momont. Good idea Alec, but outfitting a drone with a defibrillator inside immediately makes me think that it will be used for evil purposes. Like say, instead of saving people, swooping down and electrocuting humans dead.
