Chromecast in a CRT TV: Cast from the Past

Chromecast in a CRT TV: Cast from the Past
Last month we checked out Dr. Moddnstine’s modern PC in a ’90s tower. It turns out that he found a 1978 General Electric CRT TV in the same heap as the tower, and he couldn’t let that go to waste either.

ManCan Lets You Take Your Keg Anywhere

ManCan Lets You Take Your Keg Anywhere
Even though the name ManCan sounds like a portable bathroom device, it is actually a beer keg that you can take anywhere. Imagine taking an afternoon hike and stopping for a breather as you serve yourself an ice cold beer straight out of a keg.

3D Printed Baby Rattle Sword: ExPLAlibur
Thingiverse member Targ was inspired by a fellow designer dutchmogul’s 3D printed rattle mace and made a pair of sword rattles for his baby. Each sword is made of five pieces. Targ printed all of them using PLA filament, with the exception of the jewel, which is made of Taulman’s T-Glase filament.

Sailor Moon Hamburger Has Pink Buns and Star Hashbrowns
It’s no surprise to see strange foods and themed eateries turn up in Japan. The latest is a Sailor Moon-themed pop-up café that will be opening in Tokyo for a limited time. The Chibiusa Café will be open from April 16 through June 19, and among the items on the menu for fans of the series is this wacky hamburger.

Dinosaur Plushies with Egg Case: Gotta Hatch ‘Em All

Dinosaur Plushies with Egg Case: Gotta Hatch ‘Em All
The folks at Dinosaur Egg Farm want to raise awareness for wildlife preservation groups while making a bit of money for themselves as well. And what better way to remind us that life is precious than with stillborn dino plushies?

DARPA Wants to Make Flying Gremlins

DARPA Wants to Make Flying Gremlins
DARPA has awarded contracts for a new program it’s calling “Gremlins.” But before you get all excited about the government funding murderous creatures that start as adorable Mogwai that turn bad if you feed them too late at night, DARPA’s Gremlins are unmanned flying drones that can be launched and recovered by a C-130 in mid-air.

Raspberry Pi Zero Game Boy Case Mod: Maker Man Zero

Raspberry Pi Zero Game Boy Case Mod: Maker Man Zero
We’ve seen the Raspberry Pi 2 stuffed inside the case of the original Game Boy to make a retro handheld gaming sytem. Redditor bentika did the same but with the $5 Raspberry Pi Zero. The tiny board made the project cheaper, but no less complex.

Superheroine Bookend and Bookshelf: Superlibrarian

Superheroine Bookend and Bookshelf: Superlibrarian
Artori design has come up with an amazing bookend and shelf that celebrates super women. These two superhero designs are perfect for fans of Wonder Woman and other women who kick butt. Both pieces feature a silhouette of a female superhero demonstrating her superpower, which is to hold your books up.

WiCAM Coin-sized Wireless Camera: GoPetite
Set and forget cameras like action cameras and dash cams expanded the applications of video cameras. But action cameras can be pricey, while dash cams are not versatile. If you’re looking for a cheap, user-friendly and open source alternative, check out Armstart’s WiCAM.

This Chainsaw-wielding Drone Is Powered By Nightmare Fuel

This Chainsaw-wielding Drone Is Powered By Nightmare Fuel
This is one of the scariest scenarios you could ever dream up. A drone is flying toward you and it’s carrying a chainsaw. You can run, but it’s probably too late and you will be cut to pieces.

Ben Heck’s Lunch Box Dev Board Testing Kit Holds Pis and Bones

Ben Heck’s Lunch Box Dev Board Testing Kit Holds Pis and Bones
Master modder Ben Heck wanted to have a portable and compact dumb terminal to test single board computers, development boards and whatever else you may call them. It sounds like a simple contraption – it’s basically a keyboard and a screen with an HDMI input – but since Ben decided to reuse old devices and materials it ended up being a somewhat complicated project.

Hack Replicates 3D Printed Object Based on 3D Printer’s Sound: Solid Echo

Hack Replicates 3D Printed Object Based on 3D Printer’s Sound: Solid Echo
It’s a tired joke, but there’s a real risk that mass adoption of 3D printing and 3D modeling will equate digital piracy with physical theft. Now it turns out you don’t have to swipe a 3D file to copy a printed object. 

Attack on Titan Colossus Lawn Ornament Will Eat Your Neighbors

Attack on Titan Colossus Lawn Ornament Will Eat Your Neighbors
April Fools day may be behind us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to enjoy some late discoveries from the Internet’s favorite prank day. Among the many wacky items that turned up on ThinkGeek’s site yesterday is this one that I’d actually like to own.

Slash 3D Resin Printer Cranks out Eiffel Towers in a Jiffy

Slash 3D Resin Printer Cranks out Eiffel Towers in a Jiffy
3D printers are cool because you can make stuff with them that you can actually hold and touch. I assume that the home or office of everyone who owns a 3D printer has stacks of tiny plastic whatnots that serve no purpose.

Save the Kitty Game is a VR Nightmare

Save the Kitty Game is a VR Nightmare
I’m not sure what to think of cats. I’m pretty sure as a species they are quite insane. I once saw my brother’s cat jump from the top of a massive pine tree just to spite the dog who had chased it up there.
