Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction: Build Your Own Armory with Ease
With all of the controversy going on regarding “real” weapons, what with their ability to cause bodily harm, it’s best to stay out of the eternally-burning fire of this argument. Instead of going to Walmart and purchasing an assault rifle, why not save yourself some money and some responsibility?

May the Force Be with Thou: Star Wars Gets Shakespeared

May the Force Be with Thou: Star Wars Gets Shakespeared
If George Lucas were born in the Elizabethan era along with William Shakespeare, what would Star Wars have been like? I’d like to think the story would have the same characters and elements, although it’d clearly be written in very different prose.

3000 Books in One Flash Drive: A Library That Fits in the Palm of Your Hand
I hear parents complaining about how technology distracts kids and how some games and gizmos effectively make their kids dumber. I often tell them that the solution lies in their hands: replace those apparently useless gadgets with more educational stuff that their kids will still enjoy.

The Midnight Clock Secret Bookcase: The Reader’s Riddle

No other art form transacts with us the way literature can. It’s very accessible yet it demands and invites us to add depth to the world and the ideas it conjures. Devin Montgomery tries to capture the joy of discovery and exploration that we get from reading with his unique invention.

Little Free Libraries Hit the Streets of NYC

Little Free Libraries Hit the Streets of NYC
The Little Free Library isn’t a new movement, although it’s definitely still a novel one. We covered this neat project almost a year ago, where we saw participants build mini “libraries” that looked like they were converted from old mailboxes and birdhouses.

This Sliceable Cookbook is Cutting Edge

This Sliceable Cookbook is Cutting Edge
There’s more to being a chef than just searing or frying stuff up. A large part of the entire process is the preparation, and if you mess that part up, then you’ve effectively messed up the entire dish.

If Video Games Were Little Golden Books…

If Video Games Were Little Golden Books…
Remember the Little Golden Books you read as a child? Well, they’re making a comeback in a bid to make themselves relevant to the older crowd, especially to the gamers. We kid. It’s not an official effort by the publishers and they’re not actual books either.

Beertone: What Color is Your Beer-achute?
Hardcore beer drinkers who want to try every beer there is on the planet (or at least, a majority of them) will want to get their hands on a handy reference guide called Beertone. Its name is obviously a play on Pantone, which is behind one of the most widely used color matching systems used by many companies today.

Hate Mail: When You Care Enough to Send the Very Worst

Hate Mail: When You Care Enough to Send the Very Worst
I bet that almost everyone wants to send hate mail at some point in their life, but only a few of us actually go ahead and do it. One day, London-based illustrator Mr. Bingo sent a stranger, Jonathan Hopkins, an offensive postcard.

Robot Book Scanner Can Scan 250 Pages in a Minute, Has No Idea What It’s Reading

Robot Book Scanner Can Scan 250 Pages in a Minute, Has No Idea What It’s Reading
It’s awesome what robots can do these days. They’ve certainly come a long way from the first robots that people put together many, many decades ago. Case in point? The U.S. Navy’s robot that can dance to PSY’s Gangnam Style and that sporty robot that can play ping pong.

Tentacle Attack Bookends Perfect for H.P. Lovecraft Books

Tentacle Attack Bookends Perfect for H.P. Lovecraft Books
I have a recurring nightmare about being attacked by some sort of creature with too many legs. I’m not sure if it’s from playing too many FPSes, or from reading about Cthulhu. Heck, maybe it’s from visiting the aquarium.
