Tempescope: Weather in a Box

Tempescope: Weather in a Box
The weather – it’s that thing that you can easily confirm by looking out the window or literally typing “weather” on Google, yet somehow has a billion apps dedicated to it. There are so many free ways to get a weather forecast that paying $199 (USD) for it sounds insane.

Chinese Glass-bottom Bridge (Probably) Won’t Collapse

Chinese Glass-bottom Bridge (Probably) Won’t Collapse
China isn’t exactly known for its safety guidelines and building standards. It’s more known for cutting corners and having few protections in place for people and the environment. I’d be a bit nervous about walking on a bridge that was 590 feet in the air and had a glass bottom no matter where it was.

Make Your Own Star Wars Gummies by Melting Gummy Bears

Make Your Own Star Wars Gummies by Melting Gummy Bears
Star Wars already has a ton of great merchandise. There have even been a bunch of Star Wars themed candies over the years, but I don’t think they have ever released any Star Wars Gummies. This can only mean one thing.

Amazon Dash Button Pizza Delivery Hack: Makin’ It Great

Amazon Dash Button Pizza Delivery Hack: Makin’ It Great
A couple of years ago we checked out the PiePal, a Raspberry Pi device that let you order from Domino’s Pizza just by pressing a button. Brody Berson combined a couple of free JavaScript apps with Amazon’s $5 (USD) Dash Button to make a similar device for far less cost and effort.

Snake with Solid Snake & Liquid Snake: Snake? Snake!

Snake with Solid Snake & Liquid Snake: Snake? Snake!
It had to be Snakes. Snake? Snake! is developer Virtually Competent’s entry to the Duplicade game jam. It’s based on the classic mobile game Snake except instead of the titular animal, players control Metal Gear Solids‘ Twin Snakes.

Inflatable Jabba the Hutt Will Make You its Slave

Inflatable Jabba the Hutt Will Make You its Slave
I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that in the The Force Awakens, Carrier Fisher won’t be wearing her famous gold bikini. But if your girlfriend is willing to wear one, you’ll need a Jabba to go with it, and then you can play Luke.

Glowing Sea Turtle Discovered During Night Dive

Glowing Sea Turtle Discovered During Night Dive
You won’t see me swimming in the lake or the ocean. I’m not fond of putting my face where animals poop and might bite me. You certainly wouldn’t get me to go on a night dive near the Solomon Islands where you have to use bright lights to ward off crocodiles that might want to snack on your soft innards.

Working LEGO Electric Guitar: Brick Axe

Working LEGO Electric Guitar: Brick Axe
Nicola Pavan of Pavan Wood Works is a genius. He has singlehandedly taken the electric guitar to a whole new level. How, you ask? By building a guitar from LEGO. Pavan created this cool instrument in six days.

Pooch Selfie Makes Dogs as Self-Absorbed as Their Masters

Pooch Selfie Makes Dogs as Self-Absorbed as Their Masters
The Pooch Selfie is surely one of the signs of the apocalypse. Like the Selfie Spoon, it is a product that shows a society on the decline, and makes me want to run around freaking out, pulling out my hair.

Back to the Future Blu-ray Box Set Includes New Doc Brown Short

Back to the Future Blu-ray Box Set Includes New Doc Brown Short
In Back to the Future II, Marty and Doc jump forward by 30 years, and the date set on their DeLorean time machine was October 21, 2015. That date is nearly upon us, and to celebrate, a new Back to the Future Blu-ray box set is coming to a store near you.

Batman Red Son Figure Has Fuzzy Russian Hat Ears

Batman Red Son Figure Has Fuzzy Russian Hat Ears
All I know about the Russian culture I learned watching TV and movies. What that in-depth study tells me is that they all eat caviar, drink copious amounts of vodka, and wear hats with furry parts on the forehead.

Rhei Ferrofluid Clock: A Clock and Its Blob

Rhei Ferrofluid Clock: A Clock and Its Blob
You may have seen Zelf Koelman’s mesmerizing Ferrolic, a clock that uses ferrofluid to display digits and a variety of complex animations. Damjan Stanković and Marko Pavlović’s Rhei is a simpler but equally notable take on a ferrofluid clock.

Star Trek Enterprise Shelf: Wall Factor 10

Star Trek Enterprise Shelf: Wall Factor 10
This Star Trek shelf is a thing of beauty. It puts the Starship Enterprise right on your wall, which is pretty awesome if you live in a small space. Meaning that space is at a premium.

Skarp Laser Razor Never Needs Blades and Won’t Nick Your Kiwis

Skarp Laser Razor Never Needs Blades and Won’t Nick Your Kiwis
I know no one who actually likes to shave. I’ve tried everything from old school safety razors to electric razors to disposable razors with blades that cost $15 for three. They all suck and leave my skin burning after the fact.

DIY Wristwatch Phone: Watchie-Talkie

DIY Wristwatch Phone: Watchie-Talkie
A few months ago, we featured Instructables employee DJ aka Aleator777’s Apple II Watch. He recently shared another impressive retro watch, one that’s arguably more useful than the current Apple Watch. He calls it the Communicator Watch, because it’s also a GSM cell phone.
