Sure, she may be made of paper and is susceptible to fire. Sure, she can be crushed easily, but this Millennium Falcon origami ship can deliver some killer paper cuts to the Empire. She’s a fast ship alright, but fast to build?
If you like unicorns, but you prefer them sad (you sick bastard) this is the candle holder for you. The candle itself is rainbow-colored and shaped like a horn. It gets crammed right inside the head of the unicorn and then you light the candle.
The colorful hot wax pours out of the unicorn’s eye sockets and streams down its pristine white body, making it cry colorful tears.

The Erebus design was created by Brian Cargile of Two Horns United, and will transform its wearer into some kind of evil being straight out of a video game set in the postapocalyptic future.
It’s made from a variety of different materials, including ethylene vinyl acetate and various plastics, along with a silicone rubber coating, and handpainted to give it a great sense of texture and depth.
A performance artist has devised a simple way to trap unruly autonomous cars. A guy going by the name “stml” has done this by using the dotted and solid lines we all know for the streets we drive on each day.
Adam Savage might not be on Mythbusters anymore, but you can still watch him on YouTube on Tested. On the latest episode of the series, Savage goes to practical effects shop Weta Workshop to check out the skeleton suit they made for the new Ghost in the Shell movie.
I honestly figured that the Major’s robot skeleton was done in CGI, but there’s a real prop version too, and it is awesome.
I can’t believe that no one has thought of this before. This new invention claims it will transform “virtually any surface into a base for LEGO components.” You can build around corners, on curved surfaces, or even onto the sides of other brick-built creations.
The possibilities are endless.
One of the most famous rides that Disney has at its theme parks is the Haunted Mansion. This ride puts you into cars that roll through what looks like a Victorian era haunted hause. Along the way, you see yourself in the mirrors and it looks like ghosts are riding with you.
Pokémon has proven to b a wildly popular franchise for Nintendo, and Pokémon Go certainly continued that craze. The series is so popular that it is now being used to lure geeks to get checked for STDs.

Give a geek some cardboard, wood, and a roll of tape and he will cook up a very slick little obstacle course for said roll of tape. I don’t know what it is about this course that I find so mesmerizing.
I’m watching and thinking no way is that tape going to make it through the the slots cut in that cardboard, but it does.
I’ve never watched Thomas the Tank Engine, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t involve a hellish, six-legged walking train terrorizing people with a flamethrower. It really should though, because this is awesome.

Back in the ’80s, Kurt Russell was in some of the coolest movies out there. He was Snake Plissken in Escape from New York, He was Cash in Tango and Cash, and my favorite of all was Jack Burton in Big Trouble in Little China.
If you’re a fan of Rick and Morty, check out this house in Brighton, England painted with a reasonable approximation of the multidimensional adventurers. I bet the neighbors hate the people who live there.
…at least most of the neighbors.
There are some things that can only happen in Japan, and this is one of them. A Korean tourist rented out a replica Mario Kart that you can actually drive on the streets around Tokyo. The catch is that the tourist clearly hasn’t learned how to drive on the road in one.
Apparently the driver messed up negotiating a turn and ran up on the curb before hitting a police box.
Kristal of JK Brickworks created this amazing kinetic LEGO model that is absolutely fascinating to watch. It is a custom designed kinetic sculpture of a fruit bat, which replicates the unique wing motion of the nocturnal flying mammal.
In the video below, Kristal’s LEGO-building partner Jason Allemann shows the model in action, and explains how all of the mechanics work.
This is an awesome build.
Way back in the day, most toys that younger kids played with were made of wood. As time passed, most toys are now made of some sort of plastic. If you like Star Trek (the original series) and wooden toys, you will be thrilled about this.
