Everyone’s high scores will be toast with the latest Nintendo toaster console (yes, this isn’t the first we’ve seen). It is the work of Finnish artist Jarno Kotavuopio who has made several custom Nintendo consoles. He has made two in the form of toasters, including this one.

This Scrap Metal Skull Sculpture Is Making Me Nuts

This Scrap Metal Skull Sculpture Is Making Me Nuts
There’s something about skull art that I find really intriguing. Perhaps it’s that skulls are something that all of us have in common, or it’s just that they remind us of our mortality. I’m really digging this skull sculpture, made from recycled bits of metal. It was made by the guys at Thailand-based Metal Model House, using scrap metal and a whole boatload of nuts welded together to create its main form.

Miniature Foosball Table Is Perfect for Dollhouse Dive Bars
Do you love to play foosball, but don’t have room in your house for a full-size table? Then check out this teensy version of the popular pub game that’s small enough to fit on a bookshelf or your desktop. This handcrafted mini foosball table comes from Victoria, Canada’s miniLAND, and is spot-on accurate to the real deal.

Darth Vader vs. Aliens Would Be an Awesome Flick

Darth Vader vs. Aliens Would Be an Awesome Flick
Some of the recent Star Wars movies haven’t been my favorites, and at times they’ve been downright boring to me. I tell you what wouldn’t be boring – a movie that had Vader and some stormtroopers fighting against xenomorphs.

Stormtrooper Vision Test Tries to Get to the Bottom of Things

Stormtrooper Vision Test Tries to Get to the Bottom of Things
Have you ever wondered why Stormtroopers can’t hit the broad side of a barn with their blasters? Perhaps they’re not getting enough Vitamin C? Or is it that the lenses of their helmets distort their vision?

The Cookie Monster Rug: Blue Skin Rug

The Cookie Monster Rug: Blue Skin Rug
I’m not sure what Cookie Monster did to deserve being skinned alive, but I’m guessing that he stole some chocolate chip cookies from these kids – and they were having none of that. Seriously, though, this Cookie Monster shag rug that turned up over on Instructables is awesome. It was designed by contributor Mikeasaurus (who I think should change his middle name to “Rex”), and despite its sheer awesomeness, is very simple – it’s just a layer of blue shag costume fur, with a couple of balls of yarn with buttons attached for eyeballs.

Chemistry Crayon Labels: Writin’ Nerdy

Chemistry Crayon Labels: Writin’ Nerdy
Crayon labels are kept pretty basic for a good reason. The colors really don’t need much of a description. Besides, kids don’t know what Periwinkle, Scarlet, or Aquamarine are. They just want to color between the lines in their book.

This Cardboard Samurai Armor Won’t Save Your Life

This Cardboard Samurai Armor Won’t Save Your Life
Now you can dress like a samurai without any of that bulky metal or leather armor to weigh you down. Yes, this is the first samurai armor I’ve ever seen that says “no glue or scissors required.” The Kacchu cardboard samurai armor is available in two styles: bright red armor based on famed warrior Sanada Yukimura’s iconic outfit, complete with reindeer horns, or a dark one inspired by Date Masamune’s. They look really cool, but definitely won’t protect you from much of anything.

The Inception Table Is a Mind Bender

The Inception Table Is a Mind Bender
Remember how mind-blowing the movie Inception was? This table is just as mind-blowing. It was made by Stelios Mousarris, a furniture designer in Cyprus. It was inspired by the movie and is just as weird. More specifically, it was inspired by the twists and turns in Christopher Nolan’s science fiction thriller.

NES Retro Subway Maps: DC Metroid

NES Retro Subway Maps: DC Metroid
Creative director Matthew Stevenson said that when they were kids, he and his brother were frustrated by the confusing maze that is Metroid. Recently the title’s pun with the DC Metro came to his mind, and with it his childhood frustration. 

Keep Your Pencils in a Shark

Keep Your Pencils in a Shark
Despite what the Discovery channel, JAWS, and Sharknado might have us thinking, most sharks are pretty decent creatures, and aren’t in the ocean just to chomp off your legs. They’re also very useful creatures, providing a home for your sushi, fruit salads, coffee and tea.

17-Foot-Tall AT-AT Invades a Church

17-Foot-Tall AT-AT Invades a Church
It’s amazing when you think about how many Star Wars statues are around the world, some in the oddest places. Kyle Gilbert is one of the people responsible for bringing just a bit of that galaxy far, far away into our world.

This BBQ Grill Is Built Into a Jet Engine

This BBQ Grill Is Built Into a Jet Engine
Think the BBQ grill on your back deck is impressive? Get a load of this custom-built grilling station, which was built into the side of a jet engine. As a bonus, if this thing gets hit by a bird, you can just toss it on the grill and hit it with some barbeque sauce. The grill was built by the Delta Airlines TechOps team in Atlanta, Georgia, using scrap parts from a Pratt & Whitney PW2000 jet engine from a 757.

Giant LEGO Han Solo Minifig Gets Frozen in Carbonite

Giant LEGO Han Solo Minifig Gets Frozen in Carbonite
A group of LEGO builders recently built a giant 8-foot by 4-foot LEGO Han Solo in carbonite. Because why not? It was made to promote the 2020 release of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo aka E3. The sculpture was made from 49,735 individual LEGO pieces, took 38 hours to design, and 210 hours to build.
