LEGO Mechatronic Wings: Mindstorms Give You Wings
In 2014, fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht made a robotic spider dress that can brandish its spiky appendages when something comes too close to the wearer. Anouk’s new wearable wings have a similar feature. Since they’re made with LEGO, they’re easier to build than the arachnid-inspired armor.

Super Mario Maker Wallpaper Editor: Wall ∞-∞
Not content with making you make your own game, Nintendo now wants you to make your own wallpaper. Seriously though, the big N’s Super Mario Maker wallpaper editor is an excellent time waster. The editor’s interface is almost the same as the eponymous Wii U hit, which is fortunate because as of this writing, the website appears to be in Japanese only.

Check out This Amazing Optical Illusion Cutting Board
I’ve always been enamored of end-grain wooden cutting boards that are made of cubes of wood. They just look really great, and it’s clear that a ton of labor went into their creation. This particular cutting board is especially impressive, using its blocks to form a 3D depth illusion.

Rey and BB-8’s first meeting was made more memorable by an opportunistic Teedo scavenger and an adorable Luggabeast. LEGO Ideas member hongtzer honors the desert duo with this proposed playset. Hongtzer says he tried to make the luggabeast as simple as possible so that kids could assemble it on their own.

Star Wars: Episode VII’s Niima Outpost in LEGO
And now for the coolest Star Wars: The Force Awakens LEGO diorama we have seen so far… This huge diorama depicts the junkyard settlement Niima Outpost on Jakku in LEGO form. This amazing display was made by Wookieewarrior – probably as a way to show off that huge Millennium Falcon model.

DIY 3D Printed Light-up Halo Energy Sword: Slice & Solder
There are tons of foam or plastic replicas of the iconic Energy Sword, but tinkerers can make one that does more with less weight with the help of Adafruit’s guide. The company’s design uses 3D printed components and a pair of RGB LED strips to create a cool prop or toy.

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
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.

Air Bonsai Floating Plant: Magnepiphyte
