The RC Flying Car: It’s a Car, It’s a Plane!
Is it a car? Is it a plane? It’s the RC Flying car! It’s 2016 and we should have flying cars all over the skies by now. Since we don’t we will have to settle for this weird remote controlled flying car, called the Protocol Terracopter.

2016 Mattel ThingMaker 3D Printer: Pretty Printer
If there was ever a better name for a 3D printer than “3D printer”, it would probably be ThingMaker. So it’s no surprise that the accidentally prescient toymaker Mattel is relaunching its brand as exactly that.

Star Wars R2-D2 AC / USB Power Station

This device gives you both in one handy home gadget. The Star Wars R2-D2 AC/USB Power Station puts R2 in your electrical socket as if he is getting a recharge, when actually all of your gadgets are getting power.

Showerloop DIY Shower Water Recycling System: Rinse & Repeat

Showerloop DIY Shower Water Recycling System: Rinse & Repeat
Showerheads such as the Nebia save water by dispersing it over a wide area. The Showerloop on the other hand captures used water, cleans it and feeds it back to the showerhead. Inventors Jason Selvaran and Eduard Kobak says it can save you up to 33,000L of water and up to 1Mwh of electricity per person per year. Showerloop pumps used shower water through a filtration system consisting of a screen filter, a microfiber filter, compressed sand, activated carbon and a UV lamp.

This LED Lamp Is Powered by a Tiny Candle
We all take electricity for granted. I hate to sound like your parents, but there are parts of the world were they don’t have electricity. The Lumir C is perfect for those folks since it is supposed to work without batteries or any electrical source.

Wearable Chair Lets You Sit without Sitting

Wearable Chair Lets You Sit without Sitting

DIY Frisbee Launcher: We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Lawn

DIY Frisbee Launcher: We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Lawn
Last year, we saw an angle-grinder chucking compact discs at high speed. La Fabrique DIY came up with a similar but less life-threatening contraption by repurposing a drill to launch frisbees. The crude but effective launcher uses the drill to turn a bicycle wheel, which in turn flings the frisbees with the help of a wooden feeder. Unfortunately, La Fabrique DIY didn’t provide a detailed guide for the launcher, so you might lose a frisbee or 10 while you’re perfecting your own build.

DIY Gun Controlled Lamp: Lights Out

DIY Gun Controlled Lamp: Lights Out
Bitplay’s BANG! lamp adds a cool twist to remote control, but in my opinion its gimmick is not worth $400 (USD). If you have the tools, you might be better off copying Instructables member Austin aka austiwawa.
