Somebody call Spider-Man, because I think we just spotted the Green Goblin! What you’re about to see is a jet-powered Flyboard Air being piloted at speeds up to 103.4 mph. This thing looks like a lot of fun.
I loved every single episode of Futurama when it was on the air, and have watched most of the episodes at least twice since they first ran. Matt Groening’s animated sci-fi comedy may not be making new episodes anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t show your love for the series every day.
People seem to have a lot of trouble assembling IKEA furniture, which I never quite understood. But whether or not you manage complete its construction, you can always try to turn it into something else. Like turning it into an R/C plane and just flying it away into the wild blue yonder.
If you’ve ever wanted to build your own Formula 1 race car out of coke cans, this cool video will show you how. The Q channel recently built a giant Coca-Cola F1 race car using Coke and Coca-Cola Light cans, PVC pipe, and glue.
David Aguilar was born with an underdeveloped right arm. But he didn’t let that stand in his way, and he built himself an awesome prosthetic replacement using LEGO Technic parts. He has put a ton of time into it.
Need some hot tea to stay warm on Hoth? Are you an Ewok who wants to make hot tea from some humans? Maybe you’re a Stormtrooper on a break. No worries. No matter who you are across the galaxy, we have found your new tea kettle.
Robots can do some pretty amazing things these days. Sure, there are concerns about humans losing their jobs to automation, but you have to remember that there are lots of high-paying jobs created for engineers and roboticists to design, build and program the robots themselves, and many of the jobs robots take on are laborious tasks that can be harmful or stressful to humans anyhow.
For the longest time, the coolest headgear out of the world of music had to be Daft Punk’s iconic helmets, and Deadmau5’s light up mouse head. But earlier this year, Jay Kay of Jamiroquai donned a fantastic helmet not just loaded up with colorful LEDs, but motorized pieces which could change form.
Flash drives used to have some value, but these days, I’ve got boxes full of them – mostly handed to me by vendors presenting their products. To garner attention, companies have handed me USB drives that look like everything from a metal horse, to a twig, to a key fob from a $100,000 car.
Despite it being a little trippy, Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are is still one of my favorite books from my childhood. As our young protagonist Max enters the world of the Wild Things, he encounters a variety of wondrous and scary looking beasts, yet manages to win them over and become their king.
If you’re looking for something cool to add to your collection of geeky toys, look no further than these pixel art sculptures from Pixel Visions. I first spotted these at the Midwest Gaming Classic a couple of months back, but am just now getting around to writing about them.
I would say taste the rainbow, but that’s Skittles’ slogan. Starburst’s slogan is apparently “Unexplainably Juicy.” So would this outfit be Unexplainably Juicy Couture? Emily Seilhamer is clearly an awesome seamstress. She wove together this amazing dress out of thousands of Starburst wrappers.
You better get your magnifying glass and some tweezers to solve this Rubik’s Cube. Puzzle maker Tony Fisher had previously built the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube, and now it looks like he’s built the world’s smallest Rubik’s Cube.
This is proof that you can make your LEGO dreams come true. Adam Woodworth, an aerospace engineer and hardware designer at Google, wanted to see how aeronautically sound a LEGO airplane design really was, so naturally he built his own to test it out, building a large RC version of it.
The idea of a Dewback loveseat suggests a very sticky surface, but thankfully that is not the case with this Dewback loveseat crafted by Regal Robot, which is new spin-off of Tom Spina Designs. It is a 330-pound piece of furniture that looks like a giant Star Wars desert reptile.
