LEGO Rolling BB-8 Concept: Brick Ball

LEGO Rolling BB-8 Concept: Brick Ball
We’ve seen a couple of cool LEGO BB-8 models, but this LEGO Ideas proposal by Mark “mjsmiley” Smiley and James “artbot138” Garrett is significant because it can actually roll while its head stays upright, all using commercially available LEGO parts. While the droid’s body may not look like a LEGO part at first glance, it’s actually a model of the planet Tatooine, which is part of LEGO set #9675 along with Sebulbba’s Podracer.

DIY Star Wars Droid Translator Helmets: All Bleeped out
Hackster member Minimum Effective Dose made a pair of helmets that makes it seem like the wearer both speaks and understands droidspeak. Each helmet emits bleeps and bloops as you speak, and you can understand what the wearer is saying only if you have the other helmet on. The secret to the helmets is that they don’t translate at all.

Ben Heck’s Giant Game Boy Runs On An Actual Game Boy: Nestendo

Ben Heck’s Giant Game Boy Runs On An Actual Game Boy: Nestendo
We’ve seen a couple of huge Game Boy replicas, but they were actually running off of a Raspberry Pi. With the help of Parker Dillman aka The Longhorn Engineer, The Ben Heck Show was able to connect a Game Boy to a VGA monitor to create a nearly 7:1 scale replica. The project is based on the (arduous) process and the software that Parker developed, which involves using an FPGA and a level shifter to take signals from the Game Boy’s LCD screen and send it to a VGA monitor.

Dragon Ball Z Action Figure Lamps: Lamelamelaaaamp!

Dragon Ball Z Action Figure Lamps: Lamelamelaaaamp!
Etsy store LitUpInteriorDesign makes lamps out of used objects and toys. Some of their best designs involve Dragon Ball Z action figures, where the bulb is set up in such a way that they stand in for the characters’ energy attack. The bulb is mounted horizontally on a post at the rear of the wooden base to obscure the socket. It’s such a simple trick but it works really well.

The Legend of Zelda Title Screen Blanket: A Stitch Between Worlds

The Legend of Zelda Title Screen Blanket: A Stitch Between Worlds
Link, Princess Zelda and the rest of The Legend of Zelda series turned 30 yesterday, so I thought I’d look for a Zelda-related item as a birthday present. I didn’t have to look far, thanks to Sprite Stitch forum member rufusdampfer, who crocheted this awesome blanket that depicts the title screen from the first game in the series. Rufusdampfer says they spent around 2 hours each day for 4 months to create the blanket. You can hear it too, can’t you?
