R2-D2 USB Vacuum Cleans Up the Dark Side of Your Desktop
This R2-D2 vacuum cleaner from Taito is perfect for picking up those bits of orange Cheeto dust you left all over your desktop. The tiny handheld Artoo gets his power from your computer’s USB port and probably provides just enough suction to clean up equally tiny bits of dirt and debris.

Devon Tread 1 Motorized Watch Looks Awesome, but Crazy Expensive

Devon Tread 1 Motorized Watch Looks Awesome, but Crazy Expensive
I have said before that I don’t wear watches. If I were a billionaire and could just throw away money on cool stuff that I don’t really need, I would buy this new Devon Tread 1 watch. This thing has a clear polycarbonate case that is supposedly bulletproof.

The 64-Boy: the Littlest N64 Console

The 64-Boy: the Littlest N64 Console
If you’ve still got an N64, you probably haven’t used it in a while. The age of Nintendo’s 64-bit gaming platform didn’t stop Bentomo from shrinking his N64 into a portable form. I have to say that this build is totally amazing, reminding me of the TurboGrafix-16 portable, the TurboExpress. It took Bentomo 3 months to build the 64 Boy, with a total of over 80 hours of actual work.

Old School Game Geek Gets $31k for Rare Atari 2600 Game
I am not big on saving things. Typically, once I get tired of something or bored with it I throw it away or give it away. For years, I carried my Atari 2600 from my youth with me each time I moved, even though I never played it.

Han Solo Soap Makes Bathtime Full of Carbonite Fun

Han Solo Soap Makes Bathtime Full of Carbonite Fun
This bar of soap is perfect for any Star Wars fan. Han Solo is more than a scoundrel, since he’s been frozen in carbonite and ready to lather up to clean your various bits. From the photos that I’ve seen, this is a pretty good likeness of Solo frozen in carbonite from Empire Strikes Back.

Teeny Tiny LEGO Chess Set

Teeny Tiny LEGO Chess Set
I’ve got to give to the guy behind this LEGO build, it’s ingenious. If you love playing chess, then you should get cracking and build your own. This incredibly small LEGO chess set was created by Flickr user Akunthita.

LEGO Technic Bugatti Veyron Can Actually Drive, has Real Working Transmission

LEGO Technic Bugatti Veyron Can Actually Drive, has Real Working Transmission
Although there aren’t many people who can afford the world’s most expensive car, the Bugatti Veyron, there are probably quite a few people who can buy a few LEGO Technic kits in order to build a smaller Veyron – assuming they had the LEGO-building skills. This build is by Spanish LEGO-maniac Sheepo, and it looks like it sports all of the classic lines of the original, plus a few extra surprises under its tiny hood. Sheepo’s Veyron is 1:8th scale of the real car.

Awesome DIY Star Wars Papercraft

Awesome DIY Star Wars Papercraft
I knew that there were people who were very good at using paper to create things, but did you know that these papercraft creations could be this realistic? What’s even more fantastic is that you can download the plans of these papercraft ships and vehicles, and try to make them yourselves! There isn’t much information about the person behind these Star Wars-themed papercraft vessels, other than the fact that he’s Japanese.

Doctor Mobius’ Big Hairy & Scary LEGO Spider

Doctor Mobius’ Big Hairy & Scary LEGO Spider
Jason Ruff, also known as Doctor Mobius, created this big hairy spider out of LEGOs. It’s pretty awesome and has thousands of hair spikes covering its body. If that isn’t enough to give you arachnophobia, the spider comes complete with egg missiles and drones.

Strange and Beautiful Junk Robots

Strange and Beautiful Junk Robots
These unusual robots were featured on the oddly named Russian website Ribbon Comedy Eye Girls. For some reason, the title of the site makes me think of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Although these robots made from found objects don’t really function (other than maybe lighting up), they are intriguing.
