Anker Nintendo Switch Portable Charger Offers Official Nintendo Power

Anker Nintendo Switch Portable Charger Offers Official Nintendo Power
As much as we love our gadgets, they depend on a never-ending supply of juice. They always run out, and you always have to charge them up. Nintendo’s Switch is no different. So it’s a good thing that Anker has a solution to keep your hybrid console juiced up.

Now You Can Bulid Your Own Strandbeest

Now You Can Bulid Your Own Strandbeest
By now everyone has seen the videos of the Strandbeest kinetic sculptures walking the beach. Theo Jansen’s incredible walking creatures moves by using the power of the wind. It’s very impressive. Guess what? Now, you can build your own on a much smaller scale.

The Original Macintosh Finder Control Panel, Cross-stitched

The Original Macintosh Finder Control Panel, Cross-stitched
I once tried cross-stitching in an art class in school once. I stabbed myself repeatedly in the finger making my DNA part of the project. But if you can avoid the bloody bits, it turns out that cross-stitching is a wonderful way to recreate pixel art. 

Mario 64 Modded to Play at 60 Frames per Second Looks Beautiful

Mario 64 Modded to Play at 60 Frames per Second Looks Beautiful
Nintendo’s original Mario 64 game ran at 320×240 at 30fps, and only 20fps in some areas. Now, a modder has figured out a way to get the classic 3D platformer to run at 60 frames per second without negatively affecting the game’s physics.

LEGO BrickHeadz Darth Vader: Come to the Block Side

LEGO BrickHeadz Darth Vader: Come to the Block Side
We all know that the Dark Side is where you can let your anger flow. We also know they have cookies, and now we now know they also have LEGO. In other words, the Dark Side sounds like a cool place to embrace. 

Death Star Beanbag: That’s No Chair!

Death Star Beanbag: That’s No Chair!
I once bought my son a bean bag chair. ONCE. He and his friends jumped off the top bunk bed onto it and it exploded. I knew something was wrong when I heard the massive boom on the upstairs floor.

This NERF-inspired Bazooka Is Anything But Safe

This NERF-inspired Bazooka Is Anything But Safe
Over the last few years, NERF has added some awesome larger guns to its arsenal. Some even need a shoulder strap. But none of those weapons compare to Ryan & David’s recent creation: We’re talking a four-foot long custom-built rocket launcher that fires oversized darts made from pool noodles.

Toilet Papering a House with a Drone

Toilet Papering a House with a Drone
Sure, you can use drones to capture some cool aerial footage or to spy on your enemies, but this may be the best use of drones yet – toilet papering someone else’s house. Teal Drones CEO George Matus used a custom drone to do just that – in broad daylight.

Be The Mother of Dragon Kites

Be The Mother of Dragon Kites
I’m glad that dragons don’t exist; not only because they breathe fire and eat men either. There’s the bit no one thinks about. What if a dragon shat on your car? Bird poo is bad enough, but a giant dragon would certainly crush your ride with its enormous poops.

The Force Is Strong with This AT-AT Bunk Bed

The Force Is Strong with This AT-AT Bunk Bed
We’ve seen our share of AT-AT beds around here and they are all very cool. This one is no exception. As Star Wars fans we have dreamed of sleeping in one of these bad boys, but most of them are just for rich kids or kids with really crafty parents.

This Camera Turns Images Into Doodles

This Camera Turns Images Into Doodles
Cameras are for capturing exactly what we see with our naked eye and we won’t be satisfied until the technology captures scenes perfectly. That’s why we still have new and improved cameras hitting the market. But what if we went in the opposite direction?

Han Solo in Carbonite Battery Pack Won’t Freeze Your Devices

Han Solo in Carbonite Battery Pack Won’t Freeze Your Devices
Do you need more power? Of course, you do. A power bank is a good idea to keep your phone charged up while on the go. And as far as portable battery packs go, this officially-licensed Star Wars Han Solo in Carbonite power bank is one of the coolest.

Funko Twinkie the Kid POP! Figure Isn’t the Last Twinkie on Earth

Funko Twinkie the Kid POP! Figure Isn’t the Last Twinkie on Earth
One of my all-time favorite movies is Zombieland. It taught me that in a zombie apocalypse, cardio will be very important and Twinkies will be used as currency. Growing up I ate my share of Twinkies.

This Tiny Robot Bug Swims and Walk Underwater

This Tiny Robot Bug Swims and Walk Underwater
Harvard University researchers have been working on a miniature robot called the Harvard Ambulatory Microbot (HAMR) for a while now. The insect-inspired, waterproo microbot recently received an upgrade, and now it can swim and walk underwater – on land, too.

The World’s Longest Lightsaber (Don’t Try This at Home)

The World’s Longest Lightsaber (Don’t Try This at Home)
One of the things that nerds complain about is how lightsabers work in the Star Wars movies. Because as we all know, lasers don’t go to a certain length and then just stop. I mean, theoretically a lightsaber should go one forever, cutting through everything in its path.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure Vinyl LP: No Way! Way!

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure Vinyl LP: No Way! Way!
Way before The Matrix, Point Break, Speed, and John Wick, Keanu Reeves did the ’80s proud with Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. I loved that movie, and true fans will be glad to get hands on a this collectible vinyl LP that has surfaced over at ThinkGeek.
