If you’ve seen 2001: A Space Odyssey, you know how intimidating that the HAL 9000 computer can be. As he loses his digital mind, the stubborn computer takes over the ship and becomes a murderer. Peering out from its singular red eyeball, HAL will kill you with his blank stare and monotone voice.
If you set your mind to it, you can make a lamp out of just about any material you can think of. While I was perusing the pages of Instructables, I came across this unique and eye-catching modern ceiling lamp, made almost entirely out of zip ties.

It’s Thanksgiving day, and there’s no better way to celebrate the holiday than with some delicious, stuffed turkey. And while you might yours stuffed with cornbread and celery, I like mine stuffed with lithium-ion batteries, motors, and wires.
Unless you’re talking about a Keytar, most guitars are played using strings and frets. But this unique electronic instrument has neither of those. Instead, it’s played using a barcode scanner.

While there are plenty of clocks and watches out there which don’t even have a second hand, I prefer to know the time with at least one second of precision. But that certainly wasn’t good enough for one engineer, who decided he needed decidedly more confidence that he knew the EXACT time.
Look at this crazy thing. Some super Nintendo fan has gone and turned this 65 inch TV into a giant Nintendo Switch. He goes by the name Suprman9. This Nintendo fanatic has created what he calls “Nerdvana”.

If you’ve ever been to a data center, you know they’re ice cold rooms filled with racks upon racks of computer and networking equipment, and neatly bolted into 19″ wide server racks. Most of those servers are made from steel and/or aluminum components.
Daniel Riley of Stratus Productions built a super bright 1,000W LED flashlight. Then, he did what any inventive geek would – he managed to mount it to a powerful Freefly Alta drone. The result is a flying machine that can crank out some truly breathtaking aerial effects.

Let’s face it. For as cute as Furbies were supposed to be, more often than not, they’re kind of creepy. People have done some really crazy stuff with these electronic pets over the years, from slicing in two with a waterjet, to turning them into an insane musical instrument.
If you’re into playing the electric guitar, you probably have a bunch of foot pedals on the floor, ready and waiting for you to add noise, wah-wah, echo, and other effects. But I bet you don’t have an effects pedal this cool.
