DIY Hearthstone Warrior Wallet: My Thanks

DIY Hearthstone Warrior Wallet: My Thanks
One of Hearthstone‘s tried and tested decks is the control Warrior, also nicknamed “wallet Warrior” because it requires many rare cards. Redditor cube_man99 made a visual pun as a gift for a friend who loves playing with the deck. Instead of photos or credit cards, the wallet carries a print of Garrosh’s hero portrait – golden, of course – plus the card art of six control warrior spells and weapons.

DIY 7W Laser Lightsaber: The Force Ablindens
Laser enthusiast Styropyro saw Allen Pan’s blowtorch lightsaber and decided to outshine it by making his own energy blade. It’s as scary as you think. Styropyro used a Nichia Gallium (III) Nitride laser to make his lightsaber.

DIY Viking PC Case: Ragnar’s Revenge

DIY Viking PC Case: Ragnar’s Revenge
It’s that time of the year again. No, not Christmas, but Bit-tech’s annual awards for best casemod and custom case. They’ve got a lot of great entries this year and I don’t have a strong favorite.

DIY BB-8 Shoes: Roller Heels

DIY BB-8 Shoes: Roller Heels
We’ve seen a couple of outrageous heels with Star Wars-themed details. These BB-8 heels by Instructables employee Mike Warren aka mikeasaurus are stylish but not over the top. In fact, they’re under a pair of tops, because you can spin the droid-shaped heels. Mike replaced the heels with BB-8 figures that he made out of wooden spheres.

Woman Who Made Fallout Gift Box Also Gave Her Boyfriend a Witcher Gift Box

Woman Who Made Fallout Gift Box Also Gave Her Boyfriend a Witcher Gift Box
A few days ago, we were envious of Redditor NinjaShira’s boyfriend because she gave him a Fallout 4-themed gift set for Christmas. It turns she’s also giving him a complete Gwent set. I don’t know if I should still envy him, because clearly this dude has to step his game up to unprecedented levels. Like many Witcher 3 players, NinjaShira’s man is addicted to the fictional card game.

Need a cheap display for your Raspberry Pi? Or perhaps you’re building a Times Square for ants? Then check out this guide by Adafruit’s Tony Dicola. The project is based around Adafruit’s RGB Matrix HAT for the Raspberry Pi, which makes it easy to power and output to daisy chained LED matrices.

DIY $20 Handsfree Mouse for the Disabled

DIY $20 Handsfree Mouse for the Disabled
There are already commercially available mice that can be operated with the chin, mouth or tongue, but they tend to cost hundreds of dollars. Thingiverse member Tobias Wirtl hopes that he’s laid the foundation for a drastically cheaper alternative by creating a mouth-operated mouse using a 3D printer and about $20 (USD) worth of off the shelf electronics. Tobias’ mouse has a 3D printed box, joystick mount and mouthpiece.

DIY Burning Lightsaber: Luke Blademaster

DIY Burning Lightsaber: Luke Blademaster
Last October, Allen Pan aka Sufficiently Advanced wowed us with his electromagnetic Mjölnir. Now he’s celebrating the return of Star Wars to cinemas by making a lightsaber with a fiery blade. It’s actually more of a supercharged lighter with a lightsaber handle, but it still looks really cool. Put simply, Allen integrated a blowtorch into a toy lightsaber handle that emits the familiar lightsaber ignition sound.

Boba Fett Xbox One Controller is Bountyful

Boba Fett Xbox One Controller is Bountyful
Normally, when you go into the store to buy a new controller after you broke the last one because your damned Fallout 4 companion refused to GTF out of the way in a narrow path AGAIN (not that I know anything about that), you end up with a few options to choose from and none of them are particularly cool.

This LEGO Call of Duty Flamethrower Is on Fire

This LEGO Call of Duty Flamethrower Is on Fire
YouTuber ZaziNombies’s DIY LEGO flamethrower is pretty awesome. It is based on the “Purifier” flamethrower from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. It took him about 1,200 bricks to create and yes, it actually shoots flames.

DIY Overhead PC Control Panel Makes Working Infinitely More Fun
Redditor smashcuts made the simple act of opening his browser look cool by building an overhead control panel, which has tons of buttons, flip switches and LEDs. Smashcuts used a ton of wires and several USB controllers for the switches and an Arduino board for the LEDs.

Experienced makers looking for a flash of inspiration for their next project should check out the latest guide from Adafruit’s Philip Burgess. He shows us how to make the DotStar Pi, a large light painter made with the Raspberry Pi and Adafruit’s DotStar LED strip. Philip says this light painter has practically no size limit, but he suggests that you stick to a 1m to 1.5m

Walking AT-AT Project Makes Childhood Dreams Come True

Walking AT-AT Project Makes Childhood Dreams Come True
I’m sure we all have these random childhood memories of events that happened that weren’t particularly important or scary, but we still remember them with incredible clarity decades later. One of those random memories for me was going over to my cousin’s house back in the early ’80s and finding out he had just got one of those massive AT-AT walker toys as a gift. We played with that noisy and hard to move AT-AT for hours and I clearly recall us both talking about how awesome it would be to have one that really walked.

DIY LEGO McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets Vending Machine: Off the Chain
YouTuber Astonishing Studios loves to make candy dispensers using LEGO. But recently he’s been making equally cute machines for other edibles, such as his viral hit, the McFlurry maker. His latest work is for another McDonald’s product, the mysterious Chicken McNuggets. The machine’s dispensing mechanism is controlled by a Mindstorms system.

DIY Tabletop Gaming Table: World Building

DIY Tabletop Gaming Table: World Building
You can find lots of custom made gaming tables online. This one made by BoardGameGeek forum member Bum Kim is special not so much for what it is than for how it was made. Bum went to great lengths to document his project and is sharing his build log online. As you can see the table’s main feature is the 40″ HDTV permanently installed in the center, where he projects his Roll20 sessions.

DIY Claw Machine: Insert Effort

DIY Claw Machine: Insert Effort
Ryan Bates is working on a unicorn in the arcade world: a fair claw machine. Powered by an Arduino Mega, the machine isn’t easy to build, but at least it won’t screw you or your customers. To reduce costs, Ryan built the claw machine partly out of widely available 3D printer components.
