I was at the LA Auto Show once for the press preview and spent many an hour walking around the show hall drooling over the cars on display. I spent lots of time at the Ferrari display because that is as close as I will get to owning one.
The guys over at LEGO-fan site Brothers Brick came across these new LEGO sets based on this Summer’s much-anticipated Prince of Persia: Sands of Time motion picture.
The three sets range from a modest 258 piece kit for $29.99 (USD), all the way up to an enormous 821 piece set called the “Battle of Almut,” priced at $79.99.
…or actually, you probably shouldn’t do that. But you still will look awfully cool walking around with this big, bad-ass GoW blade that looks just like the one Kratos slashes his enemies with.
This prop-replica of Kratos’ Blade of Chaos is cast from sturdy zinc-aluminum, and has custom etched textures to give it that war-worn look.
Whether you’re a Japanese toddler or teen, you love Rilakkuma. Apparently, this cute teddy bear is on its way to dethrone Hello Kitty in the realms of cuteness. This makes Rilakkuma perfect for companies trying to make their devices cute.
Maker/Problem-solver Steve Hoefer made an Arduino-based glove that can play Rock Paper Scissors. Why? Why the hell not! You think a nerd would pass up the opportunity to play with a computer? The glove has an accelerometer that detects when the user is shaking his fist to signify the beginning of a round.
She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts kids:
The DC-Falcon was crafted by Steve Perry aka pezzapoo. Apparently the cult classic console and Perry’s Millenium Falcon toy were perfect for each other.
Artist/Steampunk da Vinci I-Wei Huang aka Crab Fu made this awesome remote-controlled steam tank. It uses alcohol or solid fuel tablets and can last for up to 15 minutes on a full tank of water. It’s a frankentank made of a Wilesco D49 Marine Double Piston Steam engine, a Mamod SE3 boiler, a Tamiya 1/16 clutch drive, an aluminum chassis, and steel tracks.
Sure, Sarge and his men are a bit set in their ways. But they will hold their ground and stand resolute against any enemy, their spirits unbending, their courage unyielding. Photographers also love them because they’re always in their best poses.
Tyler Clites, who’s also known as Legohaulic, put together this amazing LEGO build. He calls it Element Commune. When you first see it, it looks like a great design, but then when you see the thing walking around, it’s takes it to a whole ‘nother level.
I have two kids and therefore we have lots of stuff that hangs on the refrigerator. We have lunch menus, artwork, and lots of other crap up there. Most of the junk hangs on the fridge with plain old magnets or the few letters leftover from the magnetic letter set my daughter mostly slipped into the gap between the fridge and the cabinet.
Are you addicted to making your avatars and Miis that look like tiny doppelgänger of yourself? Then you might want to check out these cool USB minifig people that can be ordered to your own custom design specifications.
Mythbuster Adam Savage has been obsessed with producing an accurate replica blaster from Blade Runner for years. The original gun was used by Replicant-hunter Deckard, played by a young Harrison Ford. But if you’re reading this site, you probably already know that.
I’ll start out by saying that I had no idea what a Dodobongo was before I wrote this article. But from what I can tell, he’s some sort of goofy-looking animated dog from Japan. Whether or not you know what they heck he is, this USB version of the disproportionate mutt looks like it could be fun sitting on your desk.
Sariel has just created this amazing robotic hand, that he built using only LEGO Technics parts. It took him just a weekend to come up with his build, that he appropriately calls The Hand. I don’t know what it is with all the LEGOs this week, but there’s just some awesome stuff out there!
