If you discover that you have a mouse in your home, you don’t mess around with dinky little traps. You need a trap that shoots a volley of arrows at that little sucker. Turnah81 has made just such a mouse killer.
Most of the soundbars you can buy just look like a big black bar. Instructables user and engineer ralf_k wanted a modern looking soundbar that didn’t look all cheap and plasticky, so he made one of his own.
If you are looking for a Halloween scare of the audio variety, check this out. You only have a day until the big holiday, so turn off the lights, turn up your volume, and put Paweł Zadrożniak’s latest work on loop.
If there’s one game I always loved playing at Chuck E. Cheese’s when I was a kid, it was Skee-Ball. There’s just something so satisfying about rolling those balls down the ramp and into one of the point buckets – especially when the tickets come pouring out of the machine so you can redeem them for fabulous prizes.
Plug this thing in, and all your games are toast, and so is your computer. For real. xXNokkenXx created this toaster PC by stripping down a stainless steel four-slice toaster, installing a wooden block at the base and mounting the components to that.
It doesn’t make toast anymore, which is a shame, because when you are gaming, you probably want some toast for a snack.
Circuit Scribe is a very cool pen that allows builders to draw conductive traces on anything that can be used to power gizmos and gadgets. Now the company has announced that it will soon launch a kit that allows DIYers to make their own drone.
The build process includes drawing the wires to the motors using the pen’s conductive silver ink.
The Nintendo Wii has been modded countless times, but this particular build is an especially wee Wii. This isn’t some kind of Raspberry Pi emulator. What you’re looking at is a fully functional Wii gaming system crammed into an Altoids tin, dubbed the “Kill Mii.”

Great. Now I hear that “Tiny Bubbles” song in my head. All because of this LEGO bubble blowing machine built by Sariel of Sariel’s LEGO Workshop. I like it. Bubbles make the world a happier place, and I’m not just talking about that guy from Trailer Park Boys.
This sweet LEGO machine uses soap to blow bubbles.
We’ve watched many a nerd solve a Rubik’s Cube in like 4 seconds flat and we’ve also seen our share of robots that can solve it quickly as well. But until now, a Rubik’s Cube has never been able to solve itself.
You know those little mouse droids from Star Wars that zipped around the Death Star? I’m not sure what it is, but I’ve always had a soft spot for these droids. They are just cute. Ali of the Potent Printables likes them too, and is building a working mouse droid.
Ali 3D printed much of the droid, and his version even includes a hidden payload feature behind an automated door.
When you could just walk over to the fridge, nine minutes seems like a long time to wait for a glass of lemonade. In this case, it’s totally worth it. What you are looking at is a ridiculously long Rube Goldberg machine that spans the entire house just to pour a few glasses of lemonade.
Kim Pimmel is an engineer who also happens to be a filmmaker. He has a cat named “MIDI”, clearly the geekiest cat name ever. His cat does something many don’t – he doesn’t flip out when something unexpected happens, such as giving him a ride on a motorized skateboard.
The cat-customized electric skateboard has a throttle lever on it, and when Kim drops a treat into a hole on the lever, MIDI paws at it.
I really miss TV shows from back in the ’80s. So many of those series had cool and iconic cars. Knight Rider was among my favorites. Fans of the show will want to check out this LEGO version of K.I.T.T.
Few things are less appealing to a cowboy from the rural wilds of Texas that is a real rodeo cowboy than moving to New Jersey. This is exactly what happened to Steve Bacque when he met a woman from Jersey and got married.
