NASA’s Space Shuttle program is sadly, no more. But that doesn’t mean we can’t honor it in LEGO. The program helped to further space exploration, and many of us have fond memories of watching shuttle launches and landings at school.
I know fans of Game of Thrones weren’t happy Hodor was killed off. The giant has been walking around in the show saying nothing but “Hodor” for many seasons now, and once we realized what Hodor meant we realized George has been throwing his death in our faces for years.
I choose you, Pikachu. Here’s a rose. Real roses are lovely, but the problem is that their beauty fades and they soon die. That’s why these made by nerds, made for nerds, duct tape roses are awesome.
They look like Pokémon Pokéballs, and are made by Etsy shop QuirkyQrafts.
Caleb Kraft is always making cool stuff. The man is a modern day DaVinci. His latest project turns Virtual Reality into Delicious Reality. Google Cardboard? No, this edible VR headset does not taste like cardboard.
Making Google Cardboard into an edible piece of gear is pretty simple.
I’ve seen Zootopia, and I thought it was pretty meh. My kids loved it though, and a dude named Zhao spent several days building a life-size LEGO statue of Nick Wilde from the movie. I don’t know how many bricks this statue took to make, but it was lots of them.
I am a big fan of the Half-Life franchise and like most fans, I am still pissed that we haven’t seen a new Half-Life game in years. I have lots of memories of playing that game and smashing stuff with my crowbar.
Fett2-D2 (or is it R2-Fett2?) is the perfect droid/bounty hunter mashup. He can hold Death Star plans, serve drinks, or hunt down smugglers for bounties. He already had jets. Now he has another. This droid would be the ultimate bad guy.
People have gone nuts over Overwatch, and with good reason. Any time a game proves to be this popular, you can count on some epic cosplay showing up with people dressed up like the characters. Sometimes the cosplay isn’t that great, but every now and again you get a pro cosplayer, and it’s hard to tell if you are looking at a real person or a screenshot from the game.
Russian cosplayer Jannet “Incosplay” Vinogradova recently dressed up like Widowmaker from Overwatch, and she pulled it off perfectly.
Last year, we checked out a lightsaber replica that used a stream of flammable liquid as a substitute for the blade. The Hacksmith had a similar idea for a real life version of Psylocke’s psi-blade. But because Betsy’s blade is wider and wilder than the Jedi weapon, its maker opted to engulf a katana in flames.
The Hacksmith made a flammable mixture that results in a long-lasting purplish fire.
YouTuber Daniel Perdomo and his friends made one of the coolest video game replicas of the year so far. It’s a physical replica of the classic game PONG. It’s basically a magnetic, mechanical version of air hockey.
The ball moves back and forth not due to the force from the paddles but because of a magnet below the glass surface.
If you are behind on Game of Thrones, it’s really your own fault for reading this if it spoils something for you. We all know that Arya decided to do her own thing and stole a face from the hall of faces.
The only things that Pokémon and Gundam really have in common are that they both come from Japan. At least that is all they had in common until Imgur user Khrisamisu was inspired to create these Pokémon models in Gundam style.
To create the kitbashed Pokémondam figures, the builder took three iconic Pokémon characters and then created Gundam mobile suits using parts from different Gundam model kits.
Barry Crawford said that when he was a kid, he dreamed of growing up to be a robot. Sadly, his childhood dream hasn’t come true yet. But he did become what he calls a “gizmologist”, making mechanical artworks, furniture and jewelry.
