Simply looking at this massive gummy pizza will give you diabeetus. This insane edible weighs in at 225 pounds and was made by the lovers of all things gummy at Vat19. These are the same folks with that gummy pickle we talked about a not long ago.
I’ve said it before, LEGO is an amazing thing. You can build so many useful things with these little bricks and their accessories. Why are we not building more houses out of this stuff? This heavy-lifting system is a good example of how strong a LEGO structure can be.
A quick glance at this unique device over at Hammacher Schlemmer, and you most certainly wouldn’t think this is a coffee maker. It looks more like something you would use to infuse embalming fluid into Frankenstein’s monster.
Some people play with action figures. Other people play with bugs. Ew! This guy plays with both. Double ew! This student in Osaka, Japan known as @ride_hero on Twitter has a very interesting hobby. He makes action figures out of insect and crab shells.
Biomimicry is the art of making technology and robots that mimic attributes of real-life animals. Festo is all about biomimicry. Take a look at this eel-like robotic fish called BionicFinWave. It swims like a cuttlefish and is mighty creepy to behold.
I have mixed feelings about the 1986 musical comedy flick Little Shop of Horrors. I liked it because Rick Moranis and his movies were some of my favorite flicks of the era… you hoser. He was a staple of comedy in my youth.
Do you get thirsty on long car rides? Daniel Tillotson does, and wanted to safely enjoy a beverage without taking his hands off the wheel. So he modified the mechanism that sprays wiper fluid onto his Subaru’s windshield to spray kombucha directly into his mouth while he’s driving.
Of all the awesome tech in Star Trek: The Next Generation, there were two things I really wanted. I wanted the replicator not for “Tea, Earl Grey, Hot” but so I could have all the snacks I wanted on a whim.
One of the shows I liked back in the ’80s was Silver Spoons with Ricky Schroder. It didn’t have an awesome talking car or a jacked dude that turned green if you made him mad. What it did have was a rich dude and his son living in a mansion and they had their own video game arcade… and Buck Rogers’ girl.
Ten-Forward is the place where the crew of the USS Enterprise-D on Star Trek: The Next Generation would go to have a drink and unwind. So if you are going to release a Next Generation vodka, it naturally has to share the name.
If you want a robotic army to take over the world, you’ll need the ability to mass produce them. That’s why Boston Dynamics has announced it expects to be ramped up to build over 1,000 of its SpotMini robotic dogs per year by the end of 2019.
Who says farming has to be boring? The Brick Wall built this cool piece of LEGO Technic farm equipment, adding it to his already impressive collection of machines. He actually created two hay rakes. One is a modern-day farm implement, and one is inspired by the rakes of yesteryear.
Of all the Star Wars characters, the most iconic is probably Darth Vader. Lots of people who grew up on the original films were super mad when the updated version was released and our man Sebastian Shaw had his face replaced with shitty Hayden “#NotMyVader” Christensen.
