Sprite Tubular UAV: Torpedrone

Sprite Tubular UAV: Torpedrone
Most quadcopters and consumer drones have a central case that holds its other electronics and rotors branching out of it. But Ascent AeroSystems’ Sprite looks like a toy propeller, with two pairs of rotors mounted on top of a tubular frame.

Deal: Save 25% on a Super Mario Reversible Backpack!

Deal: Save 25% on a Super Mario Reversible Backpack!
A few months back, we featured this awesome Super Mario Bros. reversible backpack. It was so popular that it sold out, and readers who wanted one might have ultimately ended up disappointed. It turns out the backpacks have to be wholesale ordered in large volumes, so that’s why they haven’t turned up again.

Navy Railgun Annihilates Steel Plates in Live Fire Test

Navy Railgun Annihilates Steel Plates in Live Fire Test
We have talked about the awe-inspiring railgun that the US Navy has been working on before. The last time we mentioned it the gun was test fired at 32-megajoules and looked incredible doing it. The Navy wants to replace the giant deck guns on its ships and one day the railgun may do just that.

Arrow and Flash Action Figures are the Coolest Thing from The CW

Arrow and Flash Action Figures are the Coolest Thing from The CW
The only time you will catch me slumming it with any show from The CW is catching up on Arrow and Flash via Hulu. I like both of those shows and each time I watch I think how much cooler the Arrow is than Hawkeye.

X-34 Landspeeder Cake: Baked in the Tatooine Sun

X-34 Landspeeder Cake: Baked in the Tatooine Sun
This may look like a scene from before or after Luke and Ben and the droids went for a stroll in the Landspeeder, but it is actually a cake.

Predator’s Wrist Blades Forged in Real Life

Predator’s Wrist Blades Forged in Real Life
It’s always awesome to watch the guys from Man at Arms:Reforged do their work. This time around they are recreating the Predator’s deadly gauntlet blades from Alien vs. Predator.

Nobot Robot Lets You Hire People to Control It: Mechanical Mechanical Turk

Nobot Robot Lets You Hire People to Control It: Mechanical Mechanical Turk
Online services like Amazon’s Mechanical Turk or Fiverr let you hire people for small tasks. NOVP Limited’s Nobot is a… strange extension of that. The idea is that you’ll buy a small robot to perform manual labor.

20-inch Mass Effect Garrus Figure is Wide in the Shoulders

20-inch Mass Effect Garrus Figure is Wide in the Shoulders
I am a huge fan of the Mass Effect franchise, and the thing I wondered each time I played the game is what is the deal with Garrus’ armor. Why is he so wide in the chest and back area?

Couchmaster Lap Desk: Reverse Sofa

Couchmaster Lap Desk: Reverse Sofa
German company Nerdytec caters to PC gamers who prefer to play on their TVs. Its Couchmaster series consists of lap desks that have a pair of large and soft armrests. The wooden desk also comes with optional wrist rests.

Star Trek Garden Gnomes: To Boldly Gnome

Star Trek Garden Gnomes: To Boldly Gnome
Garden gnomes are weird. I always imagined that they would come to life and try to kill me in my sleep growing up. I am not such a big fan of the original Star Trek series, but I certainly watched all the big screen movies growing up with the original cast.

Superhero Sleep Masks: Heroes Never Sleep

Superhero Sleep Masks: Heroes Never Sleep
By day you are a mild-mannered everyman, but at night you can become a superhero while lying in bed. Forget about fighting crime. Your superpower is catching some Zzzzs. Each of these Heroes Never Sleep masks features a high quality cartoon-like design that makes it look like the superhero is half asleep.

Merle’s Knife Hand Replica Wants to Kill Rick

Merle’s Knife Hand Replica Wants to Kill Rick
The first time I saw Merle and Daryl in The Walking Dead I really didn’t like either of them. Daryl has definitely grown on me, though I was rather glad to see Merle turn. One of the most memorable scenes in the show was when they left Merle cuffed to the roof of the building in season one and Merle cut his own hand off to get away from the horde.

Electroloom Fabric 3D Printer: Seamless Seamstress

Electroloom Fabric 3D Printer: Seamless Seamstress
We’ve seen 3D printed clothing before, but it’s usually not made of fabric or if it is, it’s basically made through a hybrid of CAD and knitting. The Electroloom could be the first 3D printer that creates clothes out of fabric, combining the familiarity and comfort of traditional clothing with the efficiency and personalization of 3D design.

This DIY Propane Rifle Is Explosive

This DIY Propane Rifle Is Explosive
The Backyard Scientist’s propane rifle looks super cool when it fires. The spark and the propane going through the tubing create a neat effect, making it look like a sci-fi rifle. It is mesmerizing. It is pretty easy to build, though it’s always dangerous to play with propane and fire.

Nexpaq Smartphone Case Has Modular Electronics: Casebloks

Nexpaq Smartphone Case Has Modular Electronics: Casebloks
Google’s Project Ara and similar smartphones could help us personalize our mobile device like we do our PCs, but if you’d rather stick with your smartphone of choice, the Nexpaq phone case appears to be a viable half-measure.
