This kid is crazy. Crazy awesome. Check out this video of 15-year old Justin Stomp solving a Rubik’s Cube while spinning on his head. I know, crazy. I can’t do either of those things and this kid is doing both at the same time.
Someone call King Triumph, because Super Fan Builds made an Iron Throne… for you to poop on. The show made the pointy toilet for A Song of Ice and Fire fan John Giovanazzi and the customers of his bar Complex in Los Angeles, where John sometimes holds Game of Thrones-themed events.
The swords on the throne are mostly made out of plywood and neoprene, while the hilts were cast out of urethane.
Craftster forum user BadWolf314 of Boise, ID is a Whovian and when her husband wanted his own soda machine for their home, she was more than happy to oblige in the form of a TARDIS so that it matched their movie room.
LEGO Ideas member Ssorg must feel like the king of the world these days. After nearly four years, his proposal for a set based on the infamous RMS Titanic has gathered the 10,000 crowd votes required for LEGO to consider releasing it as an official product.
If you like the look of grainy retro style images, no digital filter can compare to good old analog film. This Lomography kit lets you snap a variety of neat analog effects and turn them into short movies.
The LomoKino shoots a film of 144 frames on a roll of standard 35mm film.
I got off to a slow start with Breaking Bad and didn’t like the show when it was still on the air. I got really bored a few months ago and binge-watched the entire series over a month, and I really liked it this time around.
Like many makers, Instructables member Gizmologist was running out of room on her workbench because of all her projects. So she decided to make a compact and self-contained toolkit to test electronics. She ended up packing an Arduino Uno, a breadboard, a voltage regulator and a capacitor substitution board in a small plywood box that still has lots of room for other tools.
Gizmologist’s portable work station measures 8″x 6″x 1.75″.
As part of its efforts to leverage its peer-to-peer protocol in more legitimate and profitable ways, BitTorrent is developing a web browser that will be more secure, stable and open. Currently under the name Project Maelstrom, the web browser works like a torrent client, turning web surfers into web servers.
But don’t get too excited yet.
LEGO is an awesome system for building just about anything, but the one thing it lacks is illumination. Your LEGO cars don’t have headlights, LEGO homes don’t have interior or patio lights and so on. Well, Build Upons ca change all of that.
Beast Kingdom unveiled its LS-023 life-size Iron Man Hulkbuster figure on April Fools Day, but apparently the toymaker wasn’t kidding: this massive collectible is indeed for sale. It’s about 10ft. tall and weighs around 1500lb. Each statue is handmade out of fiberglass and finished with automotive paint.
In what seems like a belated April Fools’ cross-promotion, Marvel and Gillette made four concepts for funny super-powered razors based on Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor. Iron Man’s razor is the only one that you can arguably call practical, but all of them will probably kill you.
In 2005, bomb technician David Hyche was looking for a way for his blind but fiercely independent 2-year-old daughter Rachel to participate in their church’s Easter Egg hunt. David read about the Blind Children’s Center’s beeping Easter eggs online, so he contacted the person who made them and made some for his daughter.
I was checking out this weekend’s Midwest Gaming Classic in Brookfield, WI and amongst all of the pinball machines and classic arcade games, I stumbled onto some really great geeky artwork at One Man Surf Party’s booth.
