Poké Ball Light-Up Replica Catches Batteries for Itself

Poké Ball Light-Up Replica Catches Batteries for Itself
A couple of years ago we checked out high quality and expensive Poké Ball replicas. These ones by Etsy shop The Pokeball Project on the other hand are more affordable. You can even open them up, though the space inside is mostly taken up by electronics.

SpaceX GoPro Video Is the Most Serene Thing You’ll See All Day

SpaceX GoPro Video Is the Most Serene Thing You’ll See All Day
SpaceX has never been shy about offering up HD video of both its successes and failures. One of my favorite SpaceX videos is the one of the rocket exploding while trying to land. SpaceX has offered up a new video that lacks explosions, but is very beautiful and serene instead.

Wristboom Is a Bluetooth Speaker for Your Wrist

Wristboom Is a Bluetooth Speaker for Your Wrist
Wristboom is a Bluetooth speaker that sits on your wrist. You can do stuff like stream music to it, or take calls. Unfortunately you can’t start any calls though, because there’s only one button, and that just turns the device on and off, and accepts incoming calls.

Turn Your Favorite Photo into a LEGO Masterpiece

Turn Your Favorite Photo into a LEGO Masterpiece
Let’s say you have a photo and you want to turn it into a LEGO mosaic. Figuring out freehand what pieces to buy, how many and in exactly the places to put them would basically be impossible.

Viking Ship Fire Pit Carries Flames to Valhalla

Viking Ship Fire Pit Carries Flames to Valhalla
All I know about Vikings and Norse mythology is what I gleaned from the Marvel universe and other TV shows. One thing I know that they preferred to burn the bodies of their dead by setting them afloat in ships that were on fire.

Website Randomly Generates Funny Nintendo E3 Leaks: Hoax on You

Website Randomly Generates Funny Nintendo E3 Leaks: Hoax on You
E3 starts in a couple of weeks, which means new games will be announced, and leaks about those games will pop up online until the event starts. Webcomic creator Brian Lee decided to poke fun at such leaks and the Web’s appetite for them by creating a website that randomly generates a schedule for Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event featuring non-existent games.

40W Laser Shotgun Will Kill Your Retinas

40W Laser Shotgun Will Kill Your Retinas
I am a big fan of lasers. I hope that one day before the zombie apocalypse happens we can develop functional, handheld laser weapons. In advance of this, one geek has created an awesome laser shotgun that won’t kill the undead, but might fry your eyeballs right out of their sockets.

3D Printed Toy Knocks Finished Prints Off the 3D Printer: PLAss Joe

3D Printed Toy Knocks Finished Prints Off the 3D Printer: PLAss Joe
Despite the advances in hardware and software and lots of guides online, 3D printing can still be tedious, even for experienced makers. One of the hassles of 3D printing is that your print can get stuck on the print bed; you’ll have to wait for it to cool then gingerly pry it off.

Watching Robots Falling Down Is the Best Thing You’ll See Today

Watching Robots Falling Down Is the Best Thing You’ll See Today
We have some very good reasons to fear our future robot overlords, but this video is proof that we still have plenty of time until we are all enslaved. IEEE Spectrum put together this video compilation of robots falling down at the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge.

North American New Nintendo 3DS Mod: Big Brains, Small Body

North American New Nintendo 3DS Mod: Big Brains, Small Body
Nintendo made two New 3DS models but released only the New 3DS XL to the North American market. It’s a shame because the smaller New 3DS is not just more portable, it’s also the only 3DS so far to have customizable front and rear covers.

Review: OAXIS Bento Wireless Speaker Requires No Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Connection
So how exactly does a wireless speaker work without a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection? The Oaxis Bento uses electromagnetic induction tech to work its magic. Simply place your smartphone on top of the Bento’s platform and align its speaker with the marked line.

LEGO Hulkbuster Concept: Minibig

LEGO Hulkbuster Concept: Minibig
LEGO already has an official Hulkbuster figure, but MOCer Raymond Chow’s concept is beefier and more imposing. Even better, Ray built it using actual LEGO. I wouldn’t be surprised if he used the helmet from the aforementioned Hulkbuster toy.

Fan Made Pokémon Hearthstone Cards: Gotta Draw ‘Em All

Fan Made Pokémon Hearthstone Cards: Gotta Draw ‘Em All
Last month we checked out a fan-made Outland expansion for Hearthstone. Here’s another fan made creation, this time for a new character class based on Pokémon. Redditor sashashepto’s ideas are far from balanced, but hey, we’re just having fun here.

DIY Raspberry Pi Photo Booth: Say Fruit!

DIY Raspberry Pi Photo Booth: Say Fruit!
Last year, TMW Unlimited Lab Tech Lead Roo Williams was asked to come up with a better way to take profile photos of new employees. At the time, someone from Human Resources simply used a compact camera to take a shot of the newbies.

Fallout Funko POP Action Figures Escape from the Vault

Fallout Funko POP Action Figures Escape from the Vault
One of my all-time favorite game franchises on the PC is Fallout. I particularly liked Fallout 3 and spent many an hour playing that game. I never actually finished it; mostly I run around with every cheat enabled as possible and try to kill every living thing in the game.

R2-D2 Teapot: Short and Stout

R2-D2 Teapot: Short and Stout
It’s not as high tech as Artoo’s remote controlled mini fridge incarnation, but this ceramic teapot is as cute as a button. On the other hand, it is just a normal teapot with decals on it, so if you’re handy with crafts you might want to save a few bucks and make your own.
