Give a geek some LEGO and great things happen. Kevin J. Walter is one such geek who loves to build awesome things with the versatile building blocks. This awesome thing is a Klingon Bird of Prey and it took 25,000 blocks to build.
A 144-piece jigsaw puzzle doesn’t sound very difficult, does it? Now imagine that all of the pieces of the puzzle were transparent, then ask yourself the same question. Now that sounds like a challenge to me!
From 1998 to 2008, the Las Vegas Hilton featured an attraction called Star Trek: The Experience. I remember going to it during a Vegas vacation, and it was quite cheesy- but in a good way. But if you have fond memories of it, or just want to bring a little bit of Trek into your home, check this out.
A few years back, we came across a pasta strainer inspired by the famed Flying Spaghetti Monster. Now you can turn any bowl of noodles into a pasta monster with this pair of serving utensils that look like a couple of googly alien eyeballs.
Full disclosure: as much as people loved Tetris, I sucked at the game. Every time the blocks started falling from the sky, I’d survive for about two minutes before I got overwhelmed, and they hit the top and my game was over.

If there’s one thing Minecraft fans can rely on, it’s those green and block Creepers, and their ability to blow up at the most inopportune moments. Well, now you can keep a Creeper right on your desktop to keep an eye on it, and I’m pretty sure it won’t blow up the place.
Do you love unusual watches? Well Tokyoflash Japan has been a great source for strange and wonderful timepieces since the year 2000. While many of their designs are eye-catching, they’re also often difficult to read at a glance.
If you are more aligned with the Dark Side than the Light Side of the force, I just found your new office chair. Just sit your butt on the Emperor’s Throne Armchair and you can watch space battle from your throne room, with your withered face and evil smile.
Marble runs can be a whole lot of fun to build and watch in action. But most of the ones I’ve seen are made from wood or maybe plastic. If you’re looking for something a little more substantial, check out this marble run kit that includes towers made from bricks.
As far as I know, most clothes are made out of fabric like cotton, polyester, leather, or nylon. But this unusual fashion line is made entirely out of rubber bands.
Student Rie Sakamoto designed the stretchy clothes as part of her Integrated Design thesis project at Japan’s Tama Art University.
Head down the rabbit hole every time you use your computer. That’s the notion behind this keycap set that features imagery inspired by the Lewis Carroll classic “Alice in Wonderland.”
Designed by keyboard enthusiast Rafal Hrynkiewicz, the UnAlice keycap set comes in a creamy Winter White color, with a skinny, easy-to-read typeface.
KFC’s marketing folks have some really strange ideas. Over the years, they’ve made chicken-scented fireplace logs, gravy-scented candles, and a Colonel Sanders bearskin rug. They’re either insane or creative geniuses, because they’ve got me talking about their brand yet again.
A couple of years back, I came across some unique ceiling fans designed to look like the fan blades from a jet engine. Now, the artist behind these awe-inspiring fans is back, and he’s showing off his biggest build yet.
