Here’s an awesome weekend project for all you tinkerers out there: a laser monocle headpiece. Instructables member Lemonie says that it’s perfect for Star Trek fans, but anyone who doesn’t think that a laser beam on your head is cool shouldn’t be reading Instructables anyway.
Over the years I have reviewed a couple of the lasers from Wicked Lasers and there aren’t things that you would call laser pointers, unless you like the ability to burn those who talk during your presentation.
You got to hand it to the people behind these Cthulhu accessories. They make something pretty frightening look pretty cute. While I don’t think that it’s a good idea of making fun of Cthulhu, it’s certainly something cute to give any HP Lovecraft fan.
If you’ve ever played any table top RPGs, you’ve probably heard of the Cthulhu Mythos.
Emma Sanders and Anton Radevsky’s Voyage to the Heart of Matter: The Atlas Experiment at CERN is the perfect gift for your little nerd. It’s a pop-up book, containing models of a CERN building, colliding particles and of course the “subatomic smasher”, the feared, the revered, the expensive, the Large Hadron Collider.
Because they wanted to end up with an accurate representation, it took the authors two years to re-create the LHC.
I’m always amazed at what some people can do with LEGO building blocks. This is definitely impressive. It’s a LEGO Mindstorms robot that can walk like a human.
The robot is called Pinocchio and the aim of the project is to kinematically imitate a human walking.
As many of us from a certain generation, I love Star Wars. While I don’t own that many toys from the movies, I do like these the artistry in these Star Wars toys photos by Gareth Payne.
His most iconic shot is of a stormtrooper doing some moonwalking, which he calls Stormwalking.
Couldn’t you use a robotic butler? I know that I sure could. This goofy home-made Butlerbot was created for the 1st birthday of its creator’s son, Ethan. That all sounds like the setup for some sort of science fiction film that goes horribly wrong when the robot assumes the personality of Ethan and becomes convinced its creator is its “father.”
Artist Stefan Le Dû recently completed this series of photos about the everyday life for a pair of stormtroopers from Star Wars who find themselves in strange and comical situations.
You can see the whole set here or visit Stefan’s Flickr album.
This awesome little device is a lightweight digital camera that can be attached to any RC device and capture photos or videos. Heck, with one of these, you could make your own homebrew surveillance drone.
The RC Plane Camera weighs about 27g, so it’s won’t bog down your RC plane.
I know that LEGO bricks can be used to make many things, but this is the first time that I’ve seen them being used for making fully-functional printer.
This LEGO printer was created by a guy named Squirrelfantasy.
I’m sure some of you have seen the full-sized, functioning Batpod replics that’s for sale on eBay. Awesome right? It’s just that us ordinary folks don’t exactly have a $100,000 (USD) to spare for the thing.
