Eddard Stark Action Figure Still Has His Head

Eddard Stark Action Figure Still Has His Head
I made it through almost the entire first season of Game of Thrones assuming that Ned Stark would be a main character throughout the entire series. Having not read any of the books, it was a decent enough assumption that happened to be very wrong.

Millennium Falcon and X-Wing Drones Arrive for Force Friday
September 4th is Force Friday, when Disney is streaming a massive unboxing event. It’s a huge day for Star Wars collectors. Maybe the biggest day in decades. Two items are sure to be of particular interest for fans who like drones.

Ants March Around iPhone When it Rings

Ants March Around iPhone When it Rings
I find ants to be creepy. I mean, they aren’t as bad as spiders, but still, I would crush every one of them if I could. At least now I know how to make them march in a perfect circle and stay away from me.

Star Wars Wall Décor: A Long Time Ago, on a Wall Far, Far, Away

Star Wars Wall Décor: A Long Time Ago, on a Wall Far, Far, Away
I always figured the Dark Side of the Force had a better recruiting program than simply waiting for your kids to grow up and trying to turn them to evil. Perhaps they used recruiting posters of some sort showing off lava-covered planets and epic battles with Jedi, or maybe they just hung things like this on the wall. These three Star Wars wall hangings look like they’re carved from stone, but are made from foam.

GoBox Raspberry Pi Robot Subscription Kit: Maker 1

GoBox Raspberry Pi Robot Subscription Kit: Maker 1
Dexter Industries makes educational electronics and robotics kits for all levels of experience. With its new GoBox subscription service, the company aims to be more involved in the progress of robotics newbies, particularly children. The heart of GoBox is the GoPiGo, an open source robotic car based on the diminutive Raspberry Pi computing platform. When you subscribe to GoBox, each month you’ll receive a new sensor for the GoPiGo and a “mission” – a lesson in the form of a story or a roleplaying scenario that involves using the new sensor.

Guy Builds Homemade Flying Machine Using 54 Drone Rotors

Guy Builds Homemade Flying Machine Using 54 Drone Rotors
Like the Wright brothers before him, this man has a serious need to fly. Some might call him adventurous. Others would call him innovative. I call him crazy. The custom-built aircraft you see here is called “The Swarm,” but I call it, “Let me off ths crazy thing!” A single drone can’t lift a person, but wire 54 drone rotors together and it’s not a problem.

Transformers Metal Earth Model Kits: Ikeacons

Transformers Metal Earth Model Kits: Ikeacons
The Generation 1 Transformers join Fascination Toys’ Metal Earth 3D model kits. The flat-pack kits come in four models – Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Soundwave – that are just under 4″ tall when assembled. Here’s a promo video by Vat19, which for some reason rebranded the kits as Metal Works: You can order the Transformers Metal Earth kits from Vat19 for $12 (USD) each or from Amazon for $11 each.

D20 for the Blind: +10 Awesome Points
D & D is an awesome game. All you need is your imagination. Build a character and have an adventure. It’s so easy that just about anybody can play it. Even those who can’t see can get in on the fun thanks to things like this cool D20 for the blind. This 3D-printed D20 has the usual numbers, but they are also in braille so blind people can throw their own rolls and read them.

Review: NETGEAR Arlo Wireless Home Security Monitoring System

Review: NETGEAR Arlo Wireless Home Security Monitoring System
NETGEAR’s recent entry into the home security space is designed to make it easy to monitor and record your home or office remotely. Unlike other systems on the market, the Arlo is truly wireless. Other than connecting the base station to an outlet and your internet router, the cameras themselves have no wires whatsoever. Each battery-powered camera is capable of capturing 720p HD video, and has the ability to record in complete darkness.

Wood Kubb Mini PC: Interchangeable Form over Function

Wood Kubb Mini PC: Interchangeable Form over Function
Last July, we checked out Mike Schropp’s Micro LEGO computer. Here’s another custom made but more discreet mini PC. Made by French company Kubb, the Wood Kubb is a 4.9 cubic inch computer with swappable handmade wooden shells. The Wood Kubb is actually the latest in line of Kubb’s eponymous Mini PCs, but the previously released models had plastic or steel shells.

Steampunk Gas Mask Looks Like Fallout, but Won’t Save You from It

Steampunk Gas Mask Looks Like Fallout, but Won’t Save You from It
Halloween will be here before you know it. They already have Halloween stuff in the stores, and the giant Halloween pop-up store in my town is already open. That means it’s time to start thinking about what you want to dress up as.

Grand Theft Auto V PC Mod Puts a Star Destroyer In Los Santos
What is better than Grand Theft Auto V? Grand Theft Auto V with Star Wars sprinkled on top. YouTuber TwoDynamic shared this footage of a GTA V PC mod, created by Justin Lewis of Arterius Modding.

Wild West Batman: The Hero Deadwood Deserves

Wild West Batman: The Hero Deadwood Deserves
Normally, city slicker Batman wears a cowl that has pointy ears on it, but his country cousin Western Batman has a cowboy hat that has pointy ears on it. I love this alternative Batman character, it reminds me a lot of the Gunslinger from the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Designed by Hitoshi Kondo, this awesome 10.6″

Dr. Martens Adventure Time Marceline Boot: Half-Demon, Half-Shoe

Dr. Martens Adventure Time Marceline Boot: Half-Demon, Half-Shoe
Earlier this year, Dr. Martens released its first batch of Adventure Time boots, featuring heroes Finn and Jake. The latest boot in the collection is based on the mischievous Marceline. Your dad’s not the only one that’s going to notice you in these babies. Strangle a pixie and head to Dr.

Ultron Cookie Jar Has No Strings

Ultron Cookie Jar Has No Strings
One of the coolest bad guys that I have seen in a superhero movie in the last few years was Ultron. He was as powerful as the superheroes that he battled. If The Avengers were able to kill Ultron, what would they do with him? I think Tony might use his head as a cookie jar, or perhaps as a hood ornament.
