Because who hasn’t dreamed of crocheting their own little Jedi army to take on the Empire, AlwaysFits is selling this Star Wars Crochet Kit.

PS5 Customized Into Miniature Dwarven Kingdom

PS5 Customized Into Miniature Dwarven Kingdom

Man Creates Folding iPhone from an iPhone X and Motorola Razr
Because dream it and you can achieve it, Chinese YouTuber 科技美学 has created the iPhone V, a folding iPhone he built using parts from both an iPhone X and Motorola Razr. That’s cool; I’ve also bent an iPhone before.

Man Installs ‘Eject Passenger’ Button Garage Door Opener in Car
Because who hasn’t dreamed of having a James Bond-style ejector seat in their vehicle to quickly remove a passenger during an uncomfortable conversation, YouTuber Scott Prints installed a passenger ejector seat button in his vehicle. Of course, it’s not actually an ejector seat button; it’s a garage door opener.

3D Printed Dragon Feet TV Stand: For Your Own House of the Dragon

3D Printed Dragon Feet TV Stand: For Your Own House of the Dragon
Because dinosaur feet make everything better (googly eyes, too, but this isn’t about them), Thingiverse user melgrubb created 3D-printed dino feet to support a flatscreen television. That’s cool, but he should have also printed little t-rex arms hugging the television from the sides.

This Robotic Spider Lamp Is Ready to Weave Its Web of Light

Star Wars Landspeeder Ride-On Children’s Toy Modded with Jet Engine

Star Wars Landspeeder Ride-On Children’s Toy Modded with Jet Engine
Because almost every mode of transportation is improved with more horsepower, inventor and YouTuber Joel Creates replaced the pathetically underpowered 12-volt motors of a children’s Star Wars Landspeeder toy with a small jet engine. And, I think I speak for every speed-lover here when I say, where was this when I was a kid?

Man Turns Old IKEA Desk Into a Star Wars Workbench

Man Turns Old IKEA Desk Into a Star Wars Workbench
Presumably using a healthy dose of The Force, filmmaker Glen Vivaris of the YouTube channel Glen Makes crafted this Star Wars-inspired workbench from an old IKEA desk. Most impressive!

This Toilet Has a Gaming PC Built Into Its Tank

World’s First Chia Toilet: The Sprouthouse
Who hasn’t dreamed of resting their rear on some soft green sprouts while they go about their bathroom business? Good news!

Modder Runs DOOM on Electronic Badge from ElectroMagnetic Field Festival
Because there’s a festival for everything, programmer Phil Ashby went and took an electronic badge from the 2022 ElectroMagnetic Field Festival (aka EMF Camp) and got it to run DOOM. I am not surprised. I also won’t be surprised when somebody manages to run DOOM on my Casio watch; it’s simply the natural progression of things.

Man Builds Remote Controlled Bed So He Never Has to Leave It
