Street Fighter II Defeated Face Busts: Nine! Eight!..
Milestone reminds us how far Street Fighter‘s art has come with these terribad 2″ busts. They’re 3D versions of the character portraits that appear in Street Fighter II after you’re defeated. Seeing Ryu and the gang beat up makes the “Continue?” prompt seem sarcastic.

Japan Gets Snoopy Museum to Celebrate Peanuts
Most of the Peanuts’ holiday specials and cartoons that were around when I was a kid weren’t exactly new even then. They were always how I knew the holidays were near as a child.

Star Trek Retro Play Set Will Beam You Back to the ’70s
I was way too young to remember any of the ’70s. I am a ’80s child through and through. I do recall a babysitter having a beat up Star Trek play set in the toy box though.

3D Printer Error Detection Mod: Axistential

3D Printer Error Detection Mod: Axistential
3D printers are prone to a problem called layer shifting, which is when the printer’s x- or y-axis stepper motor skips, causing layers from that point onward to be misaligned with the previously printed layers. That of course leads to a useless object and wasted time and materials.

LEGO Star Wars Medical Frigate Will Give You a Hand

LEGO Star Wars Medical Frigate Will Give You a Hand
I’ve seen each of the original Star Wars trilogy films more times than I can count. Somehow, I don’t recall the Nebulon-B medical Frigate at all. Apparently, the ship showed up in The Empire Strikes Back and was the ship Luke was on after having his hand chopped off by Vader.

Hoverboard Sitting Attachment Creates a Hover Kart
You know those newfangled hoverboards that are prone to explode and are really not that great anyway? Looks like people are just getting started making stupid accessories for them. Take, for example this hoverboard sitting attachment that lets you ride across the beach sitting on your lawn chair throne like redneck royalty.

Star Wars Droid Kitchen Containers: The Coffee You’re Looking for

Star Wars Droid Kitchen Containers: The Coffee You’re Looking for

Chinese Construction Workers Have a Bulldozer Beatdown

Chinese Construction Workers Have a Bulldozer Beatdown
Ever since watching Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive and seeing murderous construction equipment trying to kill people, I’ve got a healthy fear of big construction equipment.
