I’ve always wanted to build my own Rube Goldberg machine. Sadly I lack the free time and the expertise, but maybe I could build a 2D version like this one day. Who am I kidding? This thing is way too sophisticated for me.
Roller coasters and I don’t really get along. Let’s just say shaking me up and flipping me over until I’m ready to puke is not my idea of a great time. But maybe riding on this huge 90,000-piece LEGO replica would be a great way to experience some thrills without all of the nausea.
Do you love LEGO as much as I do? Here’s a fun way to add a little extra LEGO to your life, and without using a single brick. These fun papercraft models let you add some giant minifigs (is that an oxymoron?)
I always wondered what it might be like if Doctor Who took place in a steampunk alternative universe. I think it would be pretty cool to have a TARDIS filled with gears and giant steam engines, and Cybermen and Daleks made from copper and brass.
Much to the delight of fans, LEGO has been selling some nice big sets for a while now, so that nerds with disposable income can build some epic models. That said, I hold out the tiniest bit of hope that LEGO will turn Vladimir van Hoek’s full-size working Lord of the Rings pinball machine into a massive set we can buy.
The original Alien movies were definitely rollercoaster rides in their own right, but now you can go for a ride on an amazing Alien themed thrill ride, courtesy of Hin Nya. He built the elaborate ride using amusement park construction and management simulator Planet Coaster.
I’ve never really gotten the appeal of Louis Vuitton’s fashions. Not only are they ridiculously expensive, but you have to walk around with somebody’s ugly brand logo stamped all over your stuff. The way I figure it, they should pay you for the free advertising.
I don’t spend much time in church, but if they had videogames there, I might show up more often. I like to think that if religious institutions had an arcade, we’d all be spending more time bending the knee to the gods of gaming.
For every awesome LEGO kit you can buy, there are dozens more that creative LEGO builders come up with that you can’t. At least not yet. Here’s one such set that’s currently seeking support over on the LEGO Ideas website.
The original Death Star may have had a fatal flaw, but it was still one of the most important and iconic symbols of the Star Wars universe. If you prefer to remember the Death Star as it was before it was blown to smithereens by Luke Skywalker, then check out this cool lighting fixture.
Between its circular bridge and oblong warp nacelles, the Starship Enterprise is one of the most iconic spaceships in the history of science fiction. Whether you love the NCC-1701 in its original or its many other variants, they all share these common elements.
3.141592653589793… etcetera, etcetera. Math nerds love to geek out about how many digits of Pi they’ve memorized. 15 digits is about where my brain gives out, but there are folks out there who know hundreds or even thousands of digits.
A while back, I told you about the awesome video game inspired 3D shadowboxes that Glitch Artwork makes. Well, since then, they’ve continued to step up their game with new and even better pieces of wall art for fans of classic video games.
Halloween just ended, so that can only mean one thing: Thanksg… Christmas decorations! And if you’re going to have a Christmas tree this year, let it be a geeky one. These Mario ornaments from Hallmark should do the trick just fine.
One of the greatest incarnations of Rick Sanchez in the multiverse has to be Pickle Rick, who appeared for the first time this past August on season 3, episode 3. While he starts off completely ineffective, Pickle Rick quickly becomes a vicious killing machine thanks the suit he cobbles together from cockroach and rat parts.
With the rise of digital projectors and 4K video, theaters that play movies recorded on 35 mm or 70 mm film are becoming more and more rare. I remember back when I was in college and running the campus film program lugging giant containers of film stock up to the projection booth and then waiting for our projectionist to splice on trailers and make sure the sprockets weren’t all torn up before showing the movie.
