LEGO Hogwarts: You’re a Blocky Wizard, Harry!
It’s always cool when someone goes off the books to create something awesome with LEGO bricks. Take builder Mathieu BL. The guy spent 1,200 hours designing and building an intricate model of the iconic Harry Potter locale Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, complete down to the quidditch stadium behind the castle. It took Mathieu around 1200 hours of designing and building, and about 75,000 bricks to complete this impressive construction.

Original Burnout Paradise Servers to Close

Original Burnout Paradise Servers to Close
Back in 2008, EA and Criterion Games launched one of the coolest car games ever made with Burnout Paradise. The game let players fly around the open world racing, crashing, and generally tearing stuff up. I spent more time playing that game with my son than any other game we owned. We were always fans of the contest to see who could roll their car the most times.

Doctor Who TARDIS Backpack Isn’t Bigger on the Inside

These Wheels Shapeshift for Different Terrain

These Wheels Shapeshift for Different Terrain
Who says wheels need to just be round? These unusual Reconfigurable-Wheel Track (RWT) wheels were developed by CMU National Robotics Engineering Center for DARPA’s Ground X-Vehicle Technologies program. We can expect to see these on the war machines of the future and they may be the next step toward real-life Transformers like Optimus Prime. These wheels can morph from a round wheel to a triangular treaded track quickly, in less than a second, which makes the vehicle good for a wide variety of terrains.

Lockheed Martin Really Made a Space Perfume

Lockheed Martin Really Made a Space Perfume
We don’t really know space really smells like, but Lockheed Martin has taken a stab at it with their Vector Space Perfume. The aerospace and defense contractor announced the release of the fragrance on April 1 as an obvious April Fools’ Day prank. The supposedly fake perfume had an official commercial and everything, starring the company’s in-house astronaut Tony Antonelli, to promote it.

Traumatize Kids from an Early Age with This Freddy Krueger Jack-in-the-Box

Mannequin Head Sliced in Half Is the Stuff of Nightmares

Mannequin Head Sliced in Half Is the Stuff of Nightmares
A decapitated mannequin head is disturbing enough on its own, but things get even more creepy when the guys from the Waterjet Channel get their hands on a mannequin head, and subject it to their powerful 60,000 PSI waterjet cutter. This is some seriously warped stuff, as they first open up a mysterious box from a fan in Germany.
