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.

“Christmas is too commercial, man!” You’ve heard that phrase uttered every year, and yes, it’s true. Christmas has been commercialized and taken over by the man. So you know what? If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

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.

Coca-Cola PC Casemod: Have a CPU and a Smile
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. Sure, you could just go down to the army surplus shop and buy some old industrial goggles, or you could do what John Park did, and make the kind of goggles that Daft Punk would have had if they were a victorian era act.

Super Mario 64 Gets Online Multiplayer Mod, Chaos Ensues

The Floppotron Plays “Eye of the Tiger”

The Floppotron Plays “Eye of the Tiger”
Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger will always be associated with Rocky III. After all, it was the theme song for 1982 boxing flick, in which Sly throws down with Mr. T. Given its era, it only make sense that the track would sound pretty darned good played on old computer equipment.

Playable Operation Cake: Surgical Sweets

Playable Operation Cake: Surgical Sweets
Operation was one of my favorite board games growing up – because it really wasn’t a board game at all, but an opportunity to play around with electricity and pretend to be a surgeon. So what could be better than combining this fun game than an edible version made from cake?
