Apple II Blu-ray/DVD Drive: Disk to the Future
With the advent of HD and 4K streaming video, you may think that physical disks are obsolete. But frankly, most of the 1080p Blu-ray discs I’ve played on my home theater system look better than even 4K streamed content out there because of the compression streaming services apply to reduce bandwidth usage.

This Flash Drive Self-Destructs After Killing Your Computer
Even when they deliver malicious software, most USB drives don’t explode afterward, thank God. They just quietly sit there, having done their job.

It’s always fun to see people mod NERF guns into badass killing machines. Well, not killing machines exactly, with that foam ammo, but still, they can be pretty awesome. NERF’s Rival blasters fire small foam balls at speeds of up to 70 miles per hour.

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. Now Jason is back with an updated version of his awesome LEGO keyboard, and it’s better than ever. This time out, he’s updated the design to use clicky mechanical key switches, and then 3D printed special adapters which connect Cherry MX switch tops to LEGO studs.

This Giant LEGO Crane Can Lift Furniture

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. This model is an amazing piece of LEGO engineering, sure, but the best part is that it’s strong enough to actually lift and move furniture.

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.
