Some Jerk Drops an iPhone 7 Plus off the World’s Tallest Building, Because Why Not?
Youtuber TechRax likes to buy expensive gadgets and destroy them for views. Yeah, this kind of stuff gets old pretty quick, but it’s gotten him over 5 million subscribers. And the only reason I’m sharing this video with you guys is because his latest video has Rax at the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.

3D Printed 6-story Building: Ink Different
Just 3 years ago the thought of using 3D printing to create buildings – even a tiny one – seemed like a pipe dream. But last year we saw a miniature castle that was entirely 3D printed.

LEGO BioShock Infinite Diorama: Columbricka

LEGO BioShock Infinite Diorama: Columbricka
One of my favorite games on the PC is the original BioShock. I really liked BioShock Infinite, but it wasn’t as cool as the original to me. Some geeks from Imagine Rigney have built a massive LEGO recreation of one of the pivotal levels from Bioshock Infinite – the Infinite Bank of the Prophet.

Lego Grand Budapest Hotel Looks Better Than the Movie

Lego Grand Budapest Hotel Looks Better Than the Movie
I am a purist when it comes to movies. Well, not so much a purist as a person that refuses to watch movies that don’t meet my exacting criteria. I saw the previews for the flick The Grand Budapest Hotel a few times and it looked incredibly lame by my haughty standards.

Ford Plans To Put a 2015 Mustang Convertible on Top of the Empire State Building
Check out the image below and look at it closely. It’s an old and blurry image in black and white from the 60’s, but you can see clearly that is a Ford Mustang on top of New York City’s iconic Empire State building.

TARDIS Cat Condo for Peter Ca-Paw-di

TARDIS Cat Condo for Peter Ca-Paw-di
I’m surprised that Doctor Who has never had a cat companion. I mean, cats have nine lives and time lords have 13. You would think they would be palling around and having adventures all of the time.

Super Mario Bros. Utility Building 1-Ups All Others
Utility buildings are boring. You, like I, have seen many of them. They suck and could use a new look. Well, this one in Illinois is much better.

Artist Turns a Building into a Giant Rubik’s Cube
How good are you at solving Rubik’s cubes? I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m particularly bad at it. In fact, I have yet to successfully solve a 3×3 cube and I’ve been trying for five years and counting already.

Ark Nova: The Inflatable Building That Fits in Your Pocket (Not!)

Ark Nova: The Inflatable Building That Fits in Your Pocket (Not!)
Inflatable buildings are definitely an interesting way of creating temporary structures, like for concerts, weddings, etc. This particular blow-up building concept has been in the works for at least a year and it looks pretty impressive.

This Kindergarten is a Giant Cat

This Kindergarten is a Giant Cat
Kindergarten is all about having fun while learning things like your ABCs and numbers. And what could be more fun than going to school inside of a giant cat?

ERO Robot Could Tear Down and Recycle Buildings

ERO Robot Could Tear Down and Recycle Buildings
Imagine if we had robots that could not only tear a building down, but also recycle it. Large building projects would go much faster and they would likely be cheaper and safer too. This new concept in robotics may just improve the efficiency of building demolition and recycling.

Lincoln Log Tower Sets World Record for Height and Pieces

Lincoln Log Tower Sets World Record for Height and Pieces
We talk about lots of cool LEGO construction projects around here. One of the more interesting, and large LEGO projects was the gigantic 105 foot tall LEGO tower we covered about a year ago. That tower set a world record for the tallest LEGO construct ever built.

LEGO Ghostbusters Headquarters: Something Strange in Your LEGOhood

LEGO Ghostbusters Headquarters: Something Strange in Your LEGOhood
This Ghostbusters headquarters was recreated in LEGO by Orion Pax and it is amazingly detailed. As you can see, it has all of the rooms, including the fireman’s pole for LEGO figures to slide down. And yes, Ecto 1 is inside there as well.
