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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The crazy inventor Colin Furze promoted Intel’s new TV series America’s Greatest Makers by making a flamethrowing guitar and a bass that’s literally smoking. He may be a Brit, but he’s a great maker all right.
Geeky product designer Dave Delisle came up with a really cool idea for Trekkies’ away missions here on Earth. He thought of a tent that would be shaped like a Federation shuttlecraft.
As Dave points out, the tent also doubles as a reference to Star Trek V, which opened with Kirk, Spock and McCoy camping at Yosemite park.
If you’re a Star Wars fan who attends conventions, you’ve probably seen Roxy The Rancor. Maybe you even had your picture taken with her. Well, now Roxy has some competition for your photo ops.
Roxy’s creators Rick Boehler and Erik Hollander are working on a replica of the Luggabeast from The Force Awakens.
Back in the day, I went to college and picked a career because I heard it paid really well. Turns out that was a lie, but whatevs. Now, I have that degree in Respiratory Therapy, and while I spent a long time working in the field, mostly all I remember from college are things like the hottie in my class that had a penchant for blue spandex dresses, how disturbingly in love with dissecting fetal pigs my anatomy teacher was, and to never stand at the end of a tracheostomy patient’s bed.
YouTuber Charles Mangin is a big fan of Apple’s classic computers, even the apocalypse in a box known as the Apple III. Last year, Charles designed a Raspberry Pi case based on the disastrous PC. It may not look like much, but it’s actually a physical representation of Charles’ love for Apple (and making).
This amazing Batman cookie isn’t just edible. It’s also movable! This cool cookie actually has articulated joints. Granted, it doesn’t move much, but enough to make Batman do a little dance before you eat him.
This cookie features Batman in his gray and black costume with a yellow and black Batman symbol and matching utility belt.It
