Ever wanted to do some podracing in Halo? That’s a weird combination, but hey, we are here to fulfill your wishes. Modder CaptainDireWolf was able to make a cool Forge Map in Halo 5 based on Star Wars Episode I’s famous podracing scene.
I want a robot in my house that can clean, cook, and do laundry. That will free me up to watch movies and play Fallout 4. The catch is that robot hands today can’t really pick up fragile items like eggs, and if the robot can’t make bacon and eggs, it’s pretty much worthless to me.
General, there’s a settlement in the Mushroom Kingdom that needs your help! Redditor 3dbdotcom designed Fallout-themed Super Mario Bros. costumes for this year’s PAX South. He went as Mario, his wife was Princess Peach and his friend was the baddest Luigi you’ve ever seen.
There are many exoskeletons in development around the world. While the goal of some is to make your average human able to lift and carry more, the goal for others is to help people who are paralyzed to walk again.
We’ve seen a 3D printer that can print with clay. Adam Beane Industries’ upcoming Cx5 filament on the other hand can behave like clay when heated, allowing you to easily modify or refine a printed object.
Firefly fans who want a giant action figure for their collection, here you go. This 1:6 scale articulated figure Malcolm Reynolds action figure is the spitting image of Nathan Fillion. It stands 12-inches tall and looks just like Castle.
In 2014, fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht made a robotic spider dress that can brandish its spiky appendages when something comes too close to the wearer. Anouk’s new wearable wings have a similar feature. Since they’re made with LEGO, they’re easier to build than the arachnid-inspired armor.
I’ve seen 48″ wide mousepads, but a company called Pad-Zilla easily tops that with its debut product. The Pad-Zilla Large measures 60″x 30″ – that’s 5 ft x 2.5 ft – and the company has three even larger models in the works.
The latest innovation in snowball fights comes from scientist and hacker Mark Rober, who, has taken the sport to the next level with his snowball machine gun. Basically what he has done is instilled fear into bundled up children everywhere, by outfitting an Echo Leaf Blower into a dominating weapon that wins any snowball fight.
This Baby Nessie Tea Infuser from OTOTO will cost you $14(USD). It’s totally worth it, because a trip to Scotland costs much more and there’s no guarantee that you will even see the mother, let alone the baby.
Not content with making you make your own game, Nintendo now wants you to make your own wallpaper. Seriously though, the big N’s Super Mario Maker wallpaper editor is an excellent time waster.
The editor’s interface is almost the same as the eponymous Wii U hit, which is fortunate because as of this writing, the website appears to be in Japanese only.
There are many model airplanes out there that can perform cool tricks, but the Super Circle Plane model airplane is different. It is an airplane with a large circle above the wings, which is the perfect target for other planes to fly through.
Growing up, I wanted to be an archaeologist right up until I found out you don’t get to raid tombs and carry a whip. I still like finding lost treasure, these days that just means digging my phone out from under the seat of my car.
Japan is home to all manner of strange snacks. I can only assume that the Japanese love Kit Kats most of all. After all, they even wrap Kit Kats in gold leaf, and have an entire store dedicated to special Kit Kat flavors.
I’ve always been enamored of end-grain wooden cutting boards that are made of cubes of wood. They just look really great, and it’s clear that a ton of labor went into their creation. This particular cutting board is especially impressive, using its blocks to form a 3D depth illusion.
I’m not much for big cities, but my wife wants to go visit New York City badly. I assume one day we will have to go. If you are ready for your NYC vacation right now, you might want to choose this small Airbnb room complete with Netflix theme.
