Have you ever wondered why Stormtroopers can’t hit the broad side of a barn with their blasters? Perhaps they’re not getting enough Vitamin C? Or is it that the lenses of their helmets distort their vision?
I’m not sure what Cookie Monster did to deserve being skinned alive, but I’m guessing that he stole some chocolate chip cookies from these kids – and they were having none of that. Seriously, though, this Cookie Monster shag rug that turned up over on Instructables is awesome.
Crayon labels are kept pretty basic for a good reason. The colors really don’t need much of a description. Besides, kids don’t know what Periwinkle, Scarlet, or Aquamarine are. They just want to color between the lines in their book.
Remember how mind-blowing the movie Inception was? This table is just as mind-blowing. It was made by Stelios Mousarris, a furniture designer in Cyprus. It was inspired by the movie and is just as weird.
More specifically, it was inspired by the twists and turns in Christopher Nolan’s science fiction thriller.
Creative director Matthew Stevenson said that when they were kids, he and his brother were frustrated by the confusing maze that is Metroid. Recently the title’s pun with the DC Metro came to his mind, and with it his childhood frustration.
Despite what the Discovery channel, JAWS, and Sharknado might have us thinking, most sharks are pretty decent creatures, and aren’t in the ocean just to chomp off your legs. They’re also very useful creatures, providing a home for your sushi, fruit salads, coffee and tea.
Gamers, here’s a sweet accent light for your gameroom, living room, bedroom, or any other room that could use a splash of color. This LED cube lantern is covered with images of classic video games, and is sure to be a great addition to any space.
It’s amazing when you think about how many Star Wars statues are around the world, some in the oddest places. Kyle Gilbert is one of the people responsible for bringing just a bit of that galaxy far, far away into our world.
Think the BBQ grill on your back deck is impressive? Get a load of this custom-built grilling station, which was built into the side of a jet engine. As a bonus, if this thing gets hit by a bird, you can just toss it on the grill and hit it with some barbeque sauce.
A group of LEGO builders recently built a giant 8-foot by 4-foot LEGO Han Solo in carbonite. Because why not? It was made to promote the 2020 release of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo aka E3.
Over the years around here, we have perused ThinkGeek on the daily looking for cool stuff that geeks would want. We’ve also purchased more than a few of those geeky items for ourselves. I still have that air guitar shirt that plays music around here somewhere.
LEGO makes some really cool kits, but as far as I know, they’ve never released a set that looked like an arcade machine. But after seeing this awesome build by brick-building expert Frostbricks, I really hope they consider it.
Move over Thanos. The Infinity Gauntlet is no longer the ultimate power in the universe. The Infinity Saucelet is a much more powerful gauntlet. This bad boy was 3D printed by Instagram user unnecessaryinventions. It looks just like the Infinity Gauntlet, but instead of gems it has holders for six fast food dipping sauce containers.
LEGO doesn’t make an official Godzilla set, but it should, and it should look exactly like this guy. He looks awesome, and is pretty smooth considering he’s made entirely of LEGO bricks. This LEGO MOC Godzilla by Redditor u/frenchybricksjunky is just amazing, and arrived on the scene in time for Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Drone designer Adam Woodworth has created some cool drones in the past like Imperial Star Destroyers for instance, but this one is even better: a giant LEGO helicopter. It looks like it came out of a genuine LEGO set, except it’s much bigger.
