Here’s a fun project from Al Linke, the creator of the PIXEL. He used the board that he made for his pixel art LED frame to turn an LED matrix into a comically huge and interactive jewelry, which he affectionately calls the iBling.
Back in 2011, we featured Michael Curry’s Mario Kart-inspired remote-controlled cars. He has since uploaded the improved 3D files along with the instructions and the parts list for the cars on Thingiverse. Maker Kart, here we come!
iPhone cases that look like the Sony Walkman are nothing new. Thanks to Guardians of the Galaxy, Walkman cases that look like Star-Lord’s specific Walkman model, the TPS-L2, have become quite popular. But John R. Hazzard went the extra mile for and designed one for his iPhone 6 Plus.
We’ve already seen a netbook based on the Raspberry Pi. Here’s a DIY kit for a Raspberry Pi tablet. The PiTablet consists of Psy Labs’ PiTouch 10″ touchscreen, an acrylic case, a USB power pack, a remote control, a Wi-Fi module and the necessary cables.
Instructables user Mizchief100 makes rollerblades cutting edge once again with his custom fit 3D printed design. It’s not 100% 3D printed – you’ll still need to buy shoe laces and wheels for instance –but the boot, tongue, foot plate and wheel housing are all 3D printed and customizable.
The thing with all the action figures we talk about around here is that other than changing hands, posing them, and putting weapons in hands, you get what you buy. If you have always wanted to make your own action figure, ThinkGeek has exactly what you need.
Redditor DarrenDK’s EPROM coffee table can store lots of data, and it’s not harmed by ultraviolet light. It uses electricity not to store books and magazines but to keep the LEDs on its infinity mirror running.
If you want to 3D scan things, you’re going to have to shell out some serious cash. The MakerBot Digitizer, which inspired this project, for example, is a whopping $800. That’s definitely worth it to a person who’s got money to burn or using it for professional purposes.
For the two people who haven’t heard of it, the Push Button, Receive Bacon meme refers to the signage on many hand dryers, where the drawing of heat emanating from the dryer looks like strips of bacon.

Not all wearables have to be the next big thing. Here’s a high-tech piece of jewelry that you can make with the help of Adafruit’s Pro Trinket microcontroller and a 3D printer. It’s a pendant with a 1.44″ LCD display that’s playing a looping animation.
What do you do for Halloween when your doors have convenient peephole windows? You use them to make yourself a cool costume so that you can hand out treats as a monster. That’s just what Kyle of White Lightning HQ did.
Want to make a Shadowrun, Deus Ex or any cyberpunk or sci-fi costume? Adaruit contributor Tully Jagoe has a great accessory that you might want to replicate. Tully made a head-mounted array of small LEDs that make his eyes – or whatever part of your face you put them over – appear to be made of light.

World of Warcraft players will be familiar with the goblin copter. It’s a cartoonish flying device that goblins fly around for whatever reason goblins need for taking to the air. One geeky fan of the game has actually built his own goblin copter.
