DoD Funding HoverBike Development

DoD Funding HoverBike Development
Growing up, I had a subscription to the magazine of the Boy Scouts called Boys’ Life. The only part of that magazine I have any recollection of was all the wacky ads in the back for things like x-ray glasses and hover machines built using vacuum cleaner parts.

Illumi-Nation Light-up Visors: Put Yo HUD Up
Etsy shop Illumi-Nation makes plexiglass visors with futuristic laser-etched patterns that pop up when the built-in LEDs are powered up. Most of the visors have elaborate patterns, like the Iron Man-inspired one you see below, but the shop also has visors that don’t have any etching.

Sonic the Hedgehog in Real Life

Sonic the Hedgehog in Real Life
Watch as an actual hedgehog navigates a “high-budget replica” of a Sonic the Hedgehog stage. He may not have the speed of the real Sonic, but he has the heart and the drive. He will eventually make it to the end of the game.

Guy Spends Six Years Crocheting Super Mario Bros. 3 Map
Six years. Think about it. In six years’ time you can accomplish quite a bit. If you had that much time, what would you do? Well, this guy crocheted himself an awesome Super Mario Bros. 3 map.

Last month we checked out Hero Complex Props’ 3D printed Ultron mask. Here’s their latest creation, a life-size replica of a compound bow from the Thief games, made almost entirely out of 3D printed parts. 3D Print says it took 50 hours to print the 32″ bow’s 16 main parts.

Airport Climate Portal Let You Feel the Weather at Your Destination

Airport Climate Portal Let You Feel the Weather at Your Destination
I’m from Texas, so if you tell me the weather at some far away location I am traveling is hot, I can relate. If you tell me it’s really cold wherever I am heading I might have a hard time wrapping my mind around anything colder than freezing.

Alien Egg Carton Hides Facehuggers: Eggstra Scary Breakfast

Alien Egg Carton Hides Facehuggers: Eggstra Scary Breakfast
One of the coolest and scariest of the sci-fi/horror flicks I have ever watched was Alien. Though I never understood why the people would just mosey up and look directly into the open eggs. If its green and spooky looking, you won’t get me near them.

Hotline Miami + Half-Life 2: Half-Line Miami

Hotline Miami + Half-Life 2: Half-Line Miami
There’s a new Half-Life game out, but it’s not Half-Life 3. It’s not even made by Valve. But that doesn’t mean it won’t be a good game. Currently in development, Half-Line Miami borrows the gameplay and visuals of Hotline Miami and the characters and setting of Half-Life 2.

Alien Facehugger Fritter: Creepy Cruller

Alien Facehugger Fritter: Creepy Cruller
This Alien facehugger fritter looks all kinds of disgusting. It is absolutely terrifying. It probably fights you with every bite and swallow, twitching and finally being still when it hits your stomach. Donut? More like Do-not!

Chevrolet Issues Press Release Written Entirely in Emoji
Using the hashtag #ChevyGoesEmoji, automaker Chevrolet today released what is – as far as I know – the first ever press release written entirely in Emoji. They did this presumably to reach a younger, more tech-savvy demographic – potential buyers for the new 2016 Chevy Cruze – slated to be revealed on June 24th.

Angry Red Samurai Burgers Land at Burger King Japan

Angry Red Samurai Burgers Land at Burger King Japan
Burger King Japan is at it once more, with yet another strange burger variant we’re unlikely to ever see here in the States. The Aka Samurai Burger features a bright red bun, and a spicy flavor to go with it.

Venn Diagram Serving Platter: Y ∪ M

Venn Diagram Serving Platter: Y ∪ M
Because logic and food are not mutually exclusive. Designed by Thomas Both, this platter’s two-set shape is as natural for veggies and dip as it is for elementary math. Somewhere out there someone is flipping out that the dip isn’t actually an intersection of the food sets. 

The Dude Action Figure Abides

The Dude Action Figure Abides
The Big Lebowski is one of those movies that was kind of weird, but really cool. The Dude is one of the coolest characters in the flick (and in general) and Entertainment Earth is now showing off a new The Dude action figure that will land next month.

DIY Euro Truck Simulator 2 Dashboard: A Dash of Realism

DIY Euro Truck Simulator 2 Dashboard: A Dash of Realism
Fans of driving simulator games not only play with steering wheels, gear shifters and pedals. Some of them get working gauges to make the experience more immersive. Hack A Day forum member Leon Bataille wanted to have a dashboard for Euro Truck Simulator 2 (ETS 2),  but instead of buying or building the gauges and indicators, he decided to use the dashboard of an actual car.
