This Game Boy concept from German designer Florian Renner is sleek and beautiful. It re-imagines the classic handheld Game Boy for the modern world. It’s called the “game boy up1”. I like it. Hell, I wish I could buy it.
Last year, we checked out an awesome concept for a LEGO model of the Apollo 11 spacecraft and the Eagle Lunar Module. Here’s a great complementary concept from LEGO Ideas members saabfan and whatsuptoday – a model of the mission’s Saturn V rocket.
They are proposing two variants for their set: a basic set and a deluxe set.
The Analytical Engine would have been the first general purpose computer, but inventor Charles Babbage never finished it. Still, the man’s a genius and a pioneer, and so is his friend, mathematician Ada Lovelace. She wrote the first documented computer program for the Analytical Engine, though of course she never got to see it run.
The DRIVE watch is as manly as wristwatches get. One look at this timepiece, and there is no question about it. This watch was made for a man. It’s all about speed and power. There is no mistaking Gus Petrikas’ design concept for anything other than what it is.
It looks both classic and modern.
Attention 3D modelers! The 3D marketplace Pinshape and 3D design resource center Mold3D have launched a robot design contest. Create one or more 3D printable parts for their MakerTron robot and you could win a 3D printer and more.
To join the contest, submit one or more of the following: a head, a pair of legs or a pair of arms for the MakerTron robot.
The musician, maker and many more known as Doctor Popular teamed up with Betabrand to produce a line of socks based on computer errors. Glitch Socks for the socks play on graphical manifestations of glitches, Pac-Man‘s corrupted final level and the classic Windows BSOD (Blue Sock of Death?)
LEGO already has an official – albeit virtual – take on Jurassic World‘s Indominus Rex, but this concept by LEGO Ideas member senteosan is a better representation of the the spiky and bony hybrid dinosaur.
Senteosan’s concept is made of about 700 bricks, including the base.
LEGO already has an official Hulkbuster figure, but MOCer Raymond Chow’s concept is beefier and more imposing. Even better, Ray built it using actual LEGO. I wouldn’t be surprised if he used the helmet from the aforementioned Hulkbuster toy.
Ray spent nearly two weeks and used around 800 pieces to build his concept.
Last month we checked out a fan-made Outland expansion for Hearthstone. Here’s another fan made creation, this time for a new character class based on Pokémon. Redditor sashashepto’s ideas are far from balanced, but hey, we’re just having fun here.
Here’s an interesting smartphone case with a hilariously tangential pitch. Isominds claims that their product will protect your phone, but actually Isocase’s main draw is giving you a bigger screen and battery. In other words, the case turns your phone into a tablet.
The inventors of CoBattery claim that they’re bringing one of the basic features of mobile devices back to the iPhone 5, 5S and 6: the ability to swap batteries. CoBattery is a charger and case combo that comes with two removable 3200mAh batteries and a charging dock.
The idea is simple: instead of charging the iPhone or the case, you’ll charge the batteries on the dock and swap them in when needed.
You can get the CoBattery as a reward on Kickstarter by pledging at least $75 (USD), but I strongly suggest that you wait until its inventors can prove that they have a working prototype.
Hearthstone is going through the growing pains of a collectible card game. Unlike established CCGs like Magic: The Gathering, Hearthstone still has relatively few cards (566 to MTG’s 14,963) and thus few (competitive) deck possibilities. That’s why fans love to dream of future releases.
How often do you see wheelchair-accessible sports vehicles? That’s why this concept is so amazing. Bruce Thomson is an industrial design professor at Humber College in Toronto. He challenged his senior students to design a distinctively Canadian vehicle.
LEGO Ideas member Ssorg must feel like the king of the world these days. After nearly four years, his proposal for a set based on the infamous RMS Titanic has gathered the 10,000 crowd votes required for LEGO to consider releasing it as an official product.
