Super Mario Maker Wallpaper Editor: Wall ∞-∞

Super Mario Maker Wallpaper Editor: Wall ∞-∞
Not content with making you make your own game, Nintendo now wants you to make your own wallpaper. Seriously though, the big N’s Super Mario Maker wallpaper editor is an excellent time waster. The editor’s interface is almost the same as the eponymous Wii U hit, which is fortunate because as of this writing, the website appears to be in Japanese only.

Undertale Toriel Plush Toy: Hug Me, My Child
Reunite with Undertale‘s motherly monster with this spot-on plushie by Etsy seller CerbCraft. It stands 18″ tall and is made of anti-pill fleece with hypoallergenic poly-fil stuffing. I guess the dog stole her phone again. You can order the plushie from CerbCraft for $79 (USD).

Showerloop DIY Shower Water Recycling System: Rinse & Repeat
Showerheads such as the Nebia save water by dispersing it over a wide area. The Showerloop on the other hand captures used water, cleans it and feeds it back to the showerhead. Inventors Jason Selvaran and Eduard Kobak says it can save you up to 33,000L of water and up to 1Mwh of electricity per person per year.

LEGO Teedo & Luggabeast Concept Set May Never Hit Jackpot
Rey and BB-8’s first meeting was made more memorable by an opportunistic Teedo scavenger and an adorable Luggabeast. LEGO Ideas member hongtzer honors the desert duo with this proposed playset. Hongtzer says he tried to make the luggabeast as simple as possible so that kids could assemble it on their own.

DIY 3D Printed Light-up Halo Energy Sword: Slice & Solder
There are tons of foam or plastic replicas of the iconic Energy Sword, but tinkerers can make one that does more with less weight with the help of Adafruit’s guide. The company’s design uses 3D printed components and a pair of RGB LED strips to create a cool prop or toy.

Fabulous Beasts Stacks Jenga on Skylanders

Fabulous Beasts Stacks Jenga on Skylanders
Popular toys-to-life games such as Skylanders and the Amiibo platform mainly use the physical figures as save files or keys, and most of the interaction is present in the video game half. But Sensible Object used a classic party game genre to turn the tables.

Figma Virtua Fighter Akira & Sarah: Attack the Block

Figma Virtua Fighter Akira & Sarah: Attack the Block
Goodsmile continues its run of unorthodox Figma action figures with its latest releases. They’re figures of Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant in their hilariously awful polygonal bodies from the original Virtua Fighter. They look ugly now, but – eh, let’s face it.

Steam Controller’s Haptic Motors Used to Play Music: Shake It Off
Like most modern controllers, Valve’s Steam Controller has actuators that generate haptic feedback. But YouTuber pilatomic discovered that you can make its motors sing.

DIY Exoskeleton Lifts the Rear of a Mini Cooper
I’m looking forward to the day when exoskeletons will give me super powers. I want to be able to jump up on the roof without needing a ladder, and carry hundreds of pounds without getting a sore back.

DIY Frisbee Launcher: We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Lawn

DIY Frisbee Launcher: We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Lawn
Last year, we saw an angle-grinder chucking compact discs at high speed. La Fabrique DIY came up with a similar but less life-threatening contraption by repurposing a drill to launch frisbees. The crude but effective launcher uses the drill to turn a bicycle wheel, which in turn flings the frisbees with the help of a wooden feeder.

DIY Gun Controlled Lamp: Lights Out

DIY Gun Controlled Lamp: Lights Out
Bitplay’s BANG! lamp adds a cool twist to remote control, but in my opinion its gimmick is not worth $400 (USD). If you have the tools, you might be better off copying Instructables member Austin aka austiwawa.
