Live2D Euclid Combines Illustrations into a 3D Model: Sketchune Miku

Live2D Euclid Combines Illustrations into a 3D Model: Sketchune Miku
3D animations based on illustrations sacrifice a significant amount of quality in their transition from 2D. You can see it in games like Ni No Kuni, Valkyria Chronicles and the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series. Their models look great from afar, but you can see they look flat in some areas up close.

Retro Console Emulator in a Game Boy Advance SP Case: Pi SP
We’ve seen retro console emulators based on the Raspberry Pi crammed inside a Game Boy and a Game Boy Pocket’s body. Bacman forum member Frostedfires wanted to use the Game Boy Advance SP’s case, but the Pi wouldn’t fit inside it.

Leap Motion Quick Switch App for Oculus Rift Toggles Between Real Life & Virtual Reality
Leap Motion, the company behind the eponymous hand motion sensor, have come up with a clever way to let Oculus Rift users see what’s in front of them without taking off the headset.

LEGO Arm Exoskeleton: Cyberpunk is Awesome

LEGO Arm Exoskeleton: Cyberpunk is Awesome
It’s not as complex as the robotic Mindstorms arm we saw a few months ago, but this LEGO arm exoskeleton is just as cool. It was made by Flickr user Milan Sekiz, who says he found it “quite easy” to make.

Montblanc E-Strap: A Smartwatch That Hides Behind a Real Watch

Montblanc E-Strap: A Smartwatch That Hides Behind a Real Watch
If you like watches, you probably have strong feelings about smartwatches. On one hand, you’re probably in favor of watches that do as much as possible, even if it’s not something you’d use (what lunar phase is it?),

SOG Key Knife: A Knife That Looks Like a Key

SOG Key Knife: A Knife That Looks Like a Key
If you are looking for something unique in a knife, check out the SOG Key Knife. It looks like a key, just thicker, because inside of that fake key lays a knife. You can get a plain blade or a Key Knife with a nail file if that is something you use a lot.

LEGO Wonder Woman Invisible Jet is, Well, As You Can See…

LEGO Wonder Woman Invisible Jet is, Well, As You Can See…
…visible. Better than nothing, I suppose. The transparent jet and its heroic pilot are part of item no. 76026 aka the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas set. Though if you ask me Batman’s Bat-Mech is the one that needs to be invisible.

Solar Pages are Made to Clip into a Day Planner
I’m a rather unorganized person, I tend to use sticky notes to remind myself of important things I need to do even though I have an iPhone on me just about all the time. Smartphones are meant to keep us organized mind you, but mostly I use mine for watching cat videos and various fail compilations on YouTube.

Henes Broon F870 is a Power Wheels on Steroids
As soon as my daughter had enough coordination to operate a Power Wheels car, I bought her a sweet pink Mustang. She loved that thing and drove the crap out of it. She drove the thing off curbs, into kids, cars, houses, dogs, bikes, and anything else that didn’t get out of her way.

Watch General Electric Crush Stuff with 100,000 Pounds

Watch General Electric Crush Stuff with 100,000 Pounds
I have to admit, it’s pretty fun watching stuff get crushed with 100,000 pounds of force. In this video, they also blast holes in materials with 140 mph winds using an air gun. Destruction is fun when it is all about making more durable products.

There’s a “Shaun of the Dead” Stage Show Coming

There’s a “Shaun of the Dead” Stage Show Coming
Blood and ice cream have proven to be a great combination. As great as Hot Fuzz was, however, nothing can top the OG Shaun of the Dead. Since there are so many fans of the film, it gets the tribute treatment fairly regularly.
