I’m sorry guys, but that Dinosaurs on a Spaceship episode of Doctor Who… not so great IMHO. But if there is one good thing that came from that episode, it is this awesome mini episode called Dinosaurs on a Wedding Cake.
It has a dinosaur. Check. It has pizza. Check. It is bling. Check. This Pizzasaurus necklace is everything that you have ever wanted in a necklace all in one. If you love wearing shiny things and love dinosaurs (we know you love pizza) then this is your ticket to geeking out your style.
You use space heaters occasionally to heat a small room, but those are honestly huge eye sores. As in, your visitors walk in, and they walk out with bandages on their corneas and a plan to sue your broke self.
Yo dawg, I herd you like Raptors, so I put a LEGO Raptor in yo LEGO Raptor, so you can fly prehistoric-style while you fly. That’s what Jack Marquez, who goes by “Ewok in Disguise” on Flickr thought a lot about that when he was constructing his little F-22 Raptor fighter jet out of LEGO blocks.
I think that generally when most of us imagine a paleontologist, an image of someone in a pith helmet, digging in the dirt with trowels and paintbrushes comes to mind. A paleontologist at Drexel University has a project he is working on which doesn’t involve dirt or paintbrushes, and it may well be the most amazing thing to happen to dinosaurs since the giant asteroid killed them off.
Swiss artist Tom Samui has been creating junkyard wonders for the last decade or so. He works with a team of 15 people creating these amazing sculptures made out of recycled automobile parts, like this intricate elf:
Tom has created hundreds of these sculptures, entirely made out of scrap car and motorcycle parts.
If you’ve always been fascinated with the Jurassic Park movies and somehow wished that you were alive in the era of the dinosaurs, then this might be something you might want to check out: the huge, life-like 20-foot Animatronic Triceratops, available from Hammacher Schlemmer.
The Hughes (Hugheses?) have done it again. Famous for turning gadgets into jewelery-laden objects of pure sin, their latest creation is even more exotic and will surely have millionaires queue up for an order. Designed by Stuart Hughes and crafted by his wife Katrina, the iPhone 4 History Edition is filled with platinum and diamonds, but the main attraction here is found in the rear cover, which is made of meteoric stone and a 65-million year old T-Rex tooth.
Hey there. Having a normal weekend so far? Let’s make it freaky then; that’s what I’m paid to do. Below is a shot of watchmaker Louis Moinet’s latest creation. It’s called the Jurassic Tourbillon, a watch whose dial contains “fragments of authentic fossilized dinosaur bones.”
This just can’t get any better: mash up robots with dinosaurs and LEGO bricks and you’ve got Robo-Rex. Could we want more?
Robo-Rex is the brainchild of Alyse and Remi. It’s an awesome LEGO Technics build that they designed themselves.
This has got to be the coolest thing I’ve seen this week. These incredibly small dinosaur kits let you build a miniature museum of natural history on your desktop.
Artist Kelly Farrell’s Tinysaurs are incredibly weensy kits which let you build your own mini-dinos.
A new species of dinosaur has been discovered at Craftster, and it is adawwwwwrable. I’ll give it the scientific name Facelessthicipus woolysaurus, but you can call it Dinohorsie.
The 2 ft. long Dinohorsie was made by the crazy imaginative craftster sparrowarms : “My daughter has always called Dinosaurs, Dinohorsies which got me thinking: what would a Dinohorsie look like?”
This is a DIY trend we need a lot more of: custom iPhone docks made from awesome and random objects, like toy dinosaurs. That works on so many levels that maker rockabillyjon, who posted the homemade dock to Flickr, should market the thing.
Imagine if you will, a gigantic killing machine, descending on your town, crushing everything in its wake. Now imagine that same monster can fit in your pocket, and protect all your precious computer files.
Bone Collection’s Dinosaur Drivers are USB flash memory devices that look like cartoony versions of their prehistoric brethren.
This new robotics platform out of Korea lets you build a variety of unique robots from a single set of modular parts. RoboBuilder offers a complete kit of interchangeable modules which come together to form computer programmable mini-bots.
