I don’t want to alarm you, but it looks like the Doctor and his TARDIS have just crashed into your wall through a rip in time. This TARDIS Vortex Wall Light is probably the coolest Doctor Who night light you can buy.
If you’ve ever wanted to build your very own R2-D2, this is a cool idea. Now you can learn how to build an R2 unit that doubles as a steampunk gentleman tea server. It turns out, it is surprisingly easy.
Sure, we’ve all got our Millennium Falcon toys, but this ship is even cooler when it levitates. Star Wars fan and model builder @HanakiMasatoshi has built a very cool floating mini-model of the Millennium Falcon to celebrate the release of Rogue One in Japan.
NTTDoCoMo is one of Japan’s largest mobile operators, so they are always on the cutting edge. Their latest offering? Toilet paper for your smartphone. Sure, why not?
These special rolls of TP can be found by the toilets of Tokyo’s Narita airport.
As a child of the ’80s my favorite Christmas movie was a toss up between Scrooged with Bill Murray and Die Hard – the original only, not the follow ups mind you. If you don’t think Die Hard is a Christmas movie, I hope you choke on an entire buffet of dicks, and by that I mean you are wrong.
Back in the day, if you wanted to have a record of where the dungeons and secrets were in a game like The Legend of Zelda, you had to draw your own map. These days you can just 3D print a detailed map, like this amazing replica of the game’s entire overworld.
Bellingham, Washington artist Ivan Owen of Danger First has created a pair of really large and really awesome mechanical hands. What impresses me the most is how detailed they are and how well they move.
He calls them “Gepetto’s Folly,” and created them with a laser cutter using wood, leather, steel, and brass.
The idea of cutting your pizza with a vinyl record sounds pretty disgusting, but Rocket Design has created a way to make it palatable. Sadly, this tiny record player does not play tunes as it slices your pizza, but it does look cool and should create a generation of silent pizza DJs.
For many years, I thought that the coolest video game ever made was Mechwarrior. I played that game so much it’s not even funny. I’m more than a little angry that no new Mechwarrior game has surfaced in a long time.
A few years back, we spotted a Death Star made entirely from ginger snap cookies, and while that one looked crunchy and delicious, I think this one is even more impressive because of its construction technique using flat sheets of gingerbread.
Growing up, I loved the Muppets, I thought they were awesome. I hated Piggy though because she was kind of a dick and always messing with Kermit. For some reason though, I have no recollection at all of Pigs in Space.
Do you like disemboweled Tauntauns? Good, because Disney is releasing ten new Hoth-themed plush toys that include Leia, 2-1B, a Wampa, Luke, Han, and even a Tauntaun. Yes, a Tauntaun Tsum Tsum. That is way too much fun to say.
