Build a Life-size, Functional BB-8 for Just $120
What if I told you that you could have a fully functional BB-8 droid for just $120(USD)? 17-year-old Angelo Casimiro wanted a BB-8 droid, but the diminutive $140 Sphero version just wasn’t enough. So he invested his time and hard-earned cash to make his own.

The Wheel of Time Bookshelf: Round the Clock Reading Material

The Wheel of Time Bookshelf: Round the Clock Reading Material
This Wheel of Time is one of my all time favorite series of books. And this shelf is awesome. It’s a… wheel of books. Because let’s face it, a regular bookshelf just won’t do for these books.

Fan-made LEGO Arkham Asylum: Where’s Waylon?
LEGO fans – and LEGO itself – love to create dioramas of Batman’s headquarters. But Flickr user Dayton aka Forgotten Days turned his attention to the villainous hive that is the Arkham Asylum. Dayton says he’s wanted to build the infamous hospital for years.

DIY Gun Controlled Lamp: Lights Out

DIY Gun Controlled Lamp: Lights Out
Bitplay’s BANG! lamp adds a cool twist to remote control, but in my opinion its gimmick is not worth $400 (USD). If you have the tools, you might be better off copying Instructables member Austin aka austiwawa. 

Japan Has a Glorious Ninja Academy and Anyone Can Attend

Japan Has a Glorious Ninja Academy and Anyone Can Attend
Growing up, I rented the VHS tape of the b-flick American Ninja probably a million times. I wanted to be a Ninja pretty badly. My mom would never let me buy a sword or throwing stars, so my ninja dreams never came true.

3D Printed Fallout 4 Furious Power Fist: CADsmith
Thanks to Simone Fontana, you don’t have to risk irradiation and death at the hands of a super behemoth to get the legendary Furious Power Fist. Simone designed a 3D model of the unique Fallout 4 weapon and is sharing it for free. Simone’s design is not a detailed replica, but it does have the concrete knuckle with rebar sticking out of it.

Air Bonsai Floating Plant: Magnepiphyte

Air Bonsai Floating Plant: Magnepiphyte
We’ve seen small-scale magnetic levitation applied to toys and food. Hoshinchu’s Air Bonsai is another novel application of the technique, combining it with miniature plants, hand made porcelain and antique Japanese fabric to make beautiful decor. Air Bonsai’s floating portion is called the Little Star.

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it, and if you are lucky enough to have a lady in your life that likes Star Wars, I may have just gotten you laid. Don’t give her normal flowers, they die and cost a stinking fortune at Valentine’s Day. Instead, give her this Star Wars Bouquet.

Beautiful Cast Metal Gaming Dice: This Is How I Roll
I love cool dice. And speaking of cool dice, Trayser Metal Works is making some really beautiful cast metal designs. Just look at these dice. They look like treasure that you might find in a dungeon. The manufacturing of the metal dice is done entirely in-house, from CAD model to finished part.

If you are a fan of Grand Theft Auto V, you play GTA V right? Well, not if your favorite game is actually Minecraft and presumably, you have a whole lot of time on your hands.

Dad Builds Super Realistic Star Trek Playset for His Son

Dad Builds Super Realistic Star Trek Playset for His Son
Look at the image below. You are forgiven if you thought that was an image from the original Star Trek set. It’s actually a playset that awesome dad David Weiberg built for his 8-year-old son. The mostly wooden model is scaled perfectly with all of the original shapes and colors. Even the console controls and displays are accurate.

Birds in the Buff with Weapons: Armed Avians

Birds in the Buff with Weapons: Armed Avians
Look at these images. They are so weird. They are birds with human-like butts and toes with guns. It looks like some sort of deranged FPS lost its main characters. It’s almost like Howard the Duck decided to get some revenge for all those bad movie reviews. The guy behind these weird images is CG graphic designer Takio-chan.

Miniature Autonomous Blimp is No Airhead

Miniature Autonomous Blimp is No Airhead
Instructables employee DJ aka Aleator777 – the genius behind the Apple II and retro phone watches – recently promoted the Intel Edison by creating the Miniature Autonomous Blimp. This brainy balloon can stay afloat and avoid obstacles on its own. It may not look like much, but this blimp is a high tech toy.

Titanic Disaster Model in LEGO: I’m the Minifig of the World!

Titanic Disaster Model in LEGO: I’m the Minifig of the World!
Some artists work in clay, some in paint, but I think the ones that work in LEGO probably have the most fun. LEGO Certified Professional builder Ryan McNaught recreated the Titanic’s final moments in this impressively detailed model.

3D Printed Tourbillon Watch: 4D Printing

3D Printed Tourbillon Watch: 4D Printing
Last month, we checked out a 3D printed sundial that mimicked a digital display. Here’s another clever timepiece courtesy of Thingiverse member Christoph Laimer – a mechanical watch with a tourbillon. With the exception of its fasteners – pins, screws and washers – all of the watch’s parts were 3D printed. Like the tourbillon, the watch is more of a novelty than a practical device.
