Portal fans, you might want to hang onto something. Word of advice, up to you. Genevieve Bee made this cool talking and moving replica of Wheatley from scratch.
Genevieve Bee used XPS foam, foamed PVC and epoxy putty to make Wheatley’s body.
It’s nice to know that I am not the only person out there who has been sucked into Fallout 4, heart and soul. I pulled up to my aunt’s house for Thanksgiving dinner and the first thing I thought of when I saw the pile of tree trimmings lying there was that would be at least 30 units of wood and half the wall around my settlement.
I love the art on old Atari 2600 cartridges and their boxes. However, if you want to play and collect all of the vintage console’s games, but don’t want to have to devote an entire room in your house to their storage, there is a solution.
In the not too distant future, you may be able to have Amazon goods delivered within just a half hour’s time. How will it work? Former Top Gear host (and future Amazon car show host) Jeremy Clarkson explains the upcoming Amazon Prime Air drone-based delivery service in a new video.
You simply order your item, and a regionally-located drone loads up your package (presumably boxed by a human or another robot).
Makers have proven that quadcopters and Star Wars go well together. So much so that even Disney is starting to cash in. Here’s another great example of this winning combination, courtesy of Michal Miszta aka The Model Maker.
The custom made quadcopter measures about 13″x 9″x 5″ and weighs around 2lb (740g).
This watch is for serious hardcore, no-nonsense, complete a Super Mario Bros. speed-run in 4 seconds, Mario fans. Everyone else should turn back now, because this watch is crazy expensive and will just leave you feeling sad that you don’t have a spare $18,950(USD) to buy one.
If you are a fan who has enough disposable income to buy a watch priced like a car, check this out.
Work on your soldering skills with Boldport’s cute soldering kit. The Buggy has a beautiful ladybug-shaped circuit board, six candle-flicker LEDs and adjustable antennae and legs. Its legs hold the resistors, so the cute tubing socks are not just for show but for insulation as well.

Last month we saw Jason Allemann’s functioning LEGO combination safe. His latest work is no less mind-boggling. It’s a small mechanical sculpture of Sisyphus, the mythical Greek king who’s a lot like Marvel’s portrayal of Loki.
The sculpture sees Sisyphus endlessly pushing a boulder – Zeus’ punishment for his hubris and trickery.
In general, I prefer the big, speakerlike sounds of full-size headphones that cover the ears. But when I’m traveling, I usually bring along a pair of in-ear headphones in order to cut down on the bulk.
iam8bit’s been on a tear this month, releasing official merchandise from Psychonauts, Guild Wars 2 and now the beautiful mobile puzzle game Monument Valley. The store has long had prints of the game’s levels, but now they also have t-shirts, pins and these plush toys.
The Ida plush is 10″ tall, the Crow plush is 9″ tall and the Totem plush is 13″ tall.
I like cosplay as much as the next guy. This Hadouken cosplay is funny, cool, and gross all at the same time. Rather than shooting a blue ball of flame from his palms, this cosplayer is using the toilet.
Not as in USING the toilet, rather the blue water inside the toilet is the flaming ball.
We’ve seen a couple of charging cable adapters that mimic Apple’s MagSafe connector. The Gecko on the other hand mimics both MagSafe and wireless chargers using thin magnetic adapters.
Instead of plugging your devices, you’ll just place them on top of your cable or power bank and the adapters will snap into each other.
Gecko has three adapters.
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens hitting theaters in less than a month, it is a good time to celebrate the new sequels and forget all about that wreck that was the prequel trilogy. Let’s just symbolically kill those movies.
Earlier this year we checked out C.H.I.P., a single-board computer that costs only $12 (USD). But that seems like a rich man’s toy now compared to Raspberry Pi Foundation’s surprise reveal: the Raspberry Pi Zero.
Compared to the first Raspberry Pi, the Zero is about half the size but is 40% to 60% more powerful.
I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but I want to publicly thank the German stuffed toy company Steiff for making the Teddytaur. I don’t know which portion of it is human but the sum of its parts is awesome.
