IKEA Chair Turned Into an RC Plane: FlyKEA Chairplane
People seem to have a lot of trouble assembling IKEA furniture, which I never quite understood. But whether or not you manage complete its construction, you can always try to turn it into something else. Like turning it into an R/C plane and just flying it away into the wild blue yonder.

This Bicycle Rides on Car Tires
I’ve always preferred riding mountain bikes to road and hybrid bikes, thanks to their wider and more forgiving tires and suspension systems. I’ve seen some fat tire bikes before, but nothing quite like this. What you’re looking at here is a bike that rides on actual car tires.

Orion Nebula Blackout Blind Blinds You with Science
The sun comes up REALLY early here in Colorado. I thought it was like 10 am last weekend, and it was only 6 am. I blame the house behind me with the mirror tint on the back windows, and the fact that Colorado is roughly 16 inches from the surface of the sun.

Myst 25th Anniversary Collection is Probably as Infuriating as it Used to Be
Way back in the day, I went straight from high school to college into a medical program that saw me going from a broke high-school student to 19-year-old with an actual career making good money. The very first thing I bought with my very first paycheck was a 3DO game system and a copy of Myst.

Robot Vacuum Cleaner Scares a Few Lives out of a Bunch of Cats
I reviewed a few robot vacuums way back in the day, and they always seemed to get to work in the middle of the night shortly after I forgot they were in the house. These autonomous cleaners can be scary when they kick on and you aren’t expecting it.

Tweed Chewbacca Blazer: Laugh It up, Fuzzball
I think the best part about being a Wookiee would be that you never have to wear fancy clothes to anything. All you need is a bandolier and maybe an occasional trip to the groomer. On the other hand, we humans do occasionally have to dress up.

This Polaroid Camera Prints on Receipt Paper
These days, shooting on film is expensive, and it continues to get more expensive. If you use an instant camera, like Polaroid it costs a lot to snap pics. $19 for just eight shots was too much for Tim Alex Jacobs, so he hacked an old Polaroid camera to print out images on cheap thermal paper, the same kind that is used in cash registers to print out your receipt.
