DM Blade Supercar has 3D Printed Chassis: The Arduino of Cars
Last year we saw Local Motors’ Strati, a compact car with a 3D printed body, seats, windshield and support structures. Divergent Microfactories’ (DM) Blade prototype supercar looks much better – and is apparently much more powerful – than the Strati, but DM’s pride and joy is what’s inside the car.

Pokémon Credit Cards: Gotta Charge ‘Em All
Pokémon is very popular all around the world, but it’s probably most popular in Japan. So it only stands that  some cool looking Pokémon credit cards were announced in Japan this week. There are only three different designs and all of them feature Pikachu.

LEGO Ferrari F40 is the Coolest Blocky Supercar Ever
One of my favorite Ferrari cars ever made was the F40. The car was insanely expensive for its time and offered performance that nothing else could match. I also love LEGO and started more than a few fights as a child overLEGO wheels to build cars.

Review: Torque t402v Customizable Headphones
If there’s one thing that’s frustrating about headphones on the market today, it’s that each pair seems to be designed for a very specific individual’s taste and comfort. This is especially true of large headphones that are worn over or on the ears.

Portable Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet Speaker: Death Star Disco
This portable Stormtrooper Bluetooth speaker is a stormtrooper that can shoot straight for once, since it is shooting sound rather than lasers. This speaker comes from Blue Sky Studios and looks just like a classic stormtrooper helmet.

BlueLounge Posto Headphone Stand: Give Your Ears a Rest
Since I work with a lot of audio and video content, I wear headphones all the time so as not to bother everyone around me while I’m getting my job done. I’m a bit of an audio geek, so I prefer to wear big, over-the-ear headphones for the best sound.

Toc Record Player Spins Your Vinyl Vertically
Toc is one beautifully crafted record player, even if it does sort of look like an almond merged with a record. It was designed by Roy Harpaz. It spins the vinyl vertically rather than horizontally, but more importantly it looks amazing doing it.

Guy Clears Super Mario World in 23 Minutes While Blindfolded, May Be Daredevil
I can’t even tie my shoelaces while blindfolded, but some people manage to do some pretty amazing stuff without sight. Like speedrunner PangaeaPanga. This guy recently did a run of Super Mario World while blindfolded – and he did it in only 23:14.

This Four Foot-Tall Chewbacca Plush Talks

This Four Foot-Tall Chewbacca Plush Talks
Wow. Not only is this Chewbacca plush four feet-tall, he also appears to have a weird Don King hair thing going on. Can you imagine four feet of plush Chewbacca? Imagine the cuddles, the warmth… The pulling your plush C-3PO’s arm out of its socket.

Colin Furze’s MotorHorse: Merry-Go-Vroom

Colin Furze’s MotorHorse: Merry-Go-Vroom
A horse with no horsepower? Colin Furze wouldn’t stand for that. So when he got his hands on a miniature fiberglass horse, he took it apart and then crammed a pit bike inside. And then he rode it in a knight’s tournament.
