DIY 7W Laser Lightsaber: The Force Ablindens
Laser enthusiast Styropyro saw Allen Pan’s blowtorch lightsaber and decided to outshine it by making his own energy blade. It’s as scary as you think. Styropyro used a Nichia Gallium (III) Nitride laser to make his lightsaber.

It’s that time of the year again. No, not Christmas, but Bit-tech’s annual awards for best casemod and custom case. They’ve got a lot of great entries this year and I don’t have a strong favorite.

DIY BB-8 Shoes: Roller Heels
We’ve seen a couple of outrageous heels with Star Wars-themed details. These BB-8 heels by Instructables employee Mike Warren aka mikeasaurus are stylish but not over the top. In fact, they’re under a pair of tops, because you can spin the droid-shaped heels.

Jet-Powered Go-Kart: A Beautiful, But Dumb Way to Die
I think that any Spartan soldiers looking for a beautiful death would gladly strap into this homemade jet-powered go-kart. They would undoubtedly need a way to attach a shield and spear to it. Power comes from a customized Boeing gas turbine turbojet engine that pushes out 300 pounds of thrust.

Battlefield 4 Dragon Valley Easter Egg Really Doesn’t Want to Be Found

Boston Dynamics Wishes Us a Terrifying, Robot-filled Christmas
Boston Dynamics has given us a nightmare before Christmas by releasing a video of three of its creepy-ass trotting robots. The only way this video could be more terrifying is if Hector from Saturn 3 was in the sleigh wearing Santa’s head and capturing all the hot blondes.

Stormtrooper Oven Mitt: Finn the Baker

Stormtrooper Oven Mitt: Finn the Baker
ThinkGeek seems to think that the fans of the Dark Side are the only ones who bake. First they released a Darth Vader oven mitt, and now they have an officially licensed stormtrooper mitt. They certainly hate lefties: both this and the Vader mitt are for right hands only.

Ever wonder why you wouldn’t want to get your finger caught in the blades of a drone? Watch this video and find out. Watching things like fruit, donuts, sausages and other things fall like rain in slow-motion and be chopped up by this drone’s blades is truly hypnotic.

Woman Who Made Fallout Gift Box Also Gave Her Boyfriend a Witcher Gift Box
A few days ago, we were envious of Redditor NinjaShira’s boyfriend because she gave him a Fallout 4-themed gift set for Christmas. It turns she’s also giving him a complete Gwent set.
