There are so many thing you can do with LEGO; the possibilities are nearly infinite. One of my favorite LEGO builds ever was a keyboard that Jason Allemann built which had LEGO keycaps.

This Giant LEGO Crane Can Lift Furniture
Dawid Szmandra’s 1:24-scale Liebherr LR 11000 crane literally towers over other LEGO builds. In fact, when its boom is fully raised, it won’t fit in the house.

Artist Transforms Ugly Louis Vuitton Bags into Awesome Star Wars Sculptures
I’ve never really gotten the appeal of Louis Vuitton’s fashions. Not only are they ridiculously expensive, but you have to walk around with somebody’s ugly brand logo stamped all over your stuff. The way I figure it, they should pay you for the free advertising.

Learn How to Make Your Own Lightsaber Pen
If the pen is mightier than the sword, this lightsaber pen is mightier than… The pen. Despite our technological advancements, we do still use writing instruments on occasion, but one day soon they may be relics, so a lightsaber pen like this has a lot in common with the Jedi weapon of choice.

We used to feature lots of awesome PC casemods here on Technabob, but the rise of laptops and mobile devices has all but killed the desktop PC except for high-end gaming and professional workstations. So with that, the number and frequency of cool mods has decreased dramatically.

These Steampunk Clockwork Goggles Mesmerize with Light
If there’s one bit of kit that’s essential to a proper steampunk outfit, it’s a pair of goggles.
