Chevrolet Bolt EV: An Automotive Design and Engineering Wonder

Chevrolet Bolt EV: An Automotive Design and Engineering Wonder
When the Chevy Bolt first burst onto the scene as a concept back in January 2015, I figured that it would be at least a few years out, given the promise of a fully-electric car that could drive over 200 miles on a charge, carry five passengers, and cost under $30,000 (after tax credits.)

Actual Side-Scrolling LEGO Super Mario Bros. Diorama
We’ve seen plenty of Super Mario Bros. dioramas, but most of them just stand still. Not this one. Jason Cichon created an actual moving side-scroller based on the classic Nintendo game, using LEGO bricks as his medium.

What the What!!! Death Star Trench Isn’t Where We Thought It Was

What the What!!! Death Star Trench Isn’t Where We Thought It Was
Remember back in Star Wars: A New Hope when Luke destroys the Death Star on that trench run? Well I always thought that trench was the line you see through the equator of the Death Star, I would wager nearly all of you did too.

Truck Crashes, Spilling 38,000 Pounds of Marbles, No Cartoon-like Falls Ensue

Truck Crashes, Spilling 38,000 Pounds of Marbles, No Cartoon-like Falls Ensue
Many many years of cartoon watching experience would lead me to believe that when a truck filled with marbles crashes, cars would slip off the road, with people basically running in place as they slip on millions of marbles.

I choose you Pikachu! Pokémon fans who prefer playing the 3DS over walking around outside and playing Pokémon Go will want to run out and buy this handheld. Nintendo has announced that it’s bringing its bright yellow Pikachu-branded 3DS XL to North America next month.

Umbrella Drone Keeps Raindrops from Fallin’ on Your Head

Umbrella Drone Keeps Raindrops from Fallin’ on Your Head
I’ve never visited England, but if what I see on movies and TV is true, it rains there all the time. That means the English have to cart around an umbrella much of the time or risk being soaked.

Fish Controls Its Own Robotic Fish Tank

Fish Controls Its Own Robotic Fish Tank
This is strange and wrong on so many levels. This fish is driving around in and controlling its own aquarium. Has it caught on to what is happening? And if so, will it eventually want a mech suit so it can destroy us all?

Useless Salad Robot Wants to Toss Your Salad

Useless Salad Robot Wants to Toss Your Salad
Are you tired of tossing your own salad? Sorry if that sounded too personal. I’m just trying to introduce you to the Useless Salad Robot. It is a 3D-printed machine that tosses, mixes, and warms salads, but maybe not in the most practical way.

This unique kitchen appliance proves that there is a God and that he wants us to eat bacon. Plenty and plenty of bacon. Let this sink in for a moment: It’s a toaster just for bacon.

Watch a 1,000° Red Hot Rocket Knife Slice Through Stuff
Remember when The Backyard Scientist Kevin Kohler sliced through stuff with his rocket knife? Good times. Cool as that was, he knew he could do better, so he has now launched a 1,000° red hot rocket knife at a bunch of stuff just to see what would happen.

Darth Vader Statue Kneels Before His Master

Darth Vader Statue Kneels Before His Master
The thing that always bothered me about the relationship between Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine was the power dynamic. Palpatine was in charge. Vader kneeled to him after all. The thing is that Vader was literally one of the most powerful Jedi ever.

Watch an Underwater LEGO Train Swim with the Fishes

Watch an Underwater LEGO Train Swim with the Fishes
This is a sight that you don’t see everyday. Bananenbuurman built a LEGO train set, then mounted a camera on the locomotive, and recorded its journey through the back yard and into a long underwater tunnel with plenty of fish.

This Hedgehog Isn’t Sonic, but He’s Still the Bomb

This Hedgehog Isn’t Sonic, but He’s Still the Bomb
Look at this awesome creature. This real hedgehog is escaping some sort of explosion, and he’s in legit “no f*cks given” mode. He isn’t even running. He didn’t even blink. Something’s blowing up… whatevs. Cool hedgehogs don’t look at explosions I suspect maybe the hedgehog blew up something back there.
