Bike Wheel Bow: Nock! Draw! Loose! Pedal!

LEGO Flower Pots Make Me Wish I Had Green Thumbs

LEGO Flower Pots Make Me Wish I Had Green Thumbs
One of the things that I know about myself is that I kill plants. I have known this for years, therefore I don’t own plants, a garden, or try to grow anything other than kids. Kids are resilient and remind me to water them whereas plants sit mute and die a brown death.

Guy Turns Bedroom into Arcade, Loses Fiancée
We’ve heard this story before. A guy gets engaged, reveals his geeky (and usually expensive) obsession to his fiancée, then the fiancée dumps him. It just ain’t right. However, sometimes it is the guy’s fault. It isn’t always the girl being too mean.

Chocolate Quadcopter: Willy Wonka’s UAV
We’ve seen quadcopters made from a bicycle rim, a keyboard and a dead cat. RIP Orville. That makes this quadcopter with a chocolate frame par for the course here at Technabob, but it certainly is the most delicious drone we’ve ever seen.

RGB Shades: Really Good at Blinding

Guy Walks on Ceiling with Homemade Magneto Boots, Laughs Maniacally
Check out this video of Colin Furze (the maniac who gave us those cool Wolverine claws) walking on the ceiling using his newly-completed, homemade Magneto boots. I question his sanity after seeing him laughing hysterically over the feat.

DARwin-Mini Programmable Robot Kit: Survival of the Cutest

DARwin-Mini Programmable Robot Kit: Survival of the Cutest
The open source humanoid robot DARwin-OP is a tinkerer’s dream, but at $12,000 (USD) it’s going to remain just that for many. Fortunately Robotis released a more affordable version of the robot. The DARwin-Mini may be smaller and less powerful than its bigger – and OP!

DIY 3D Printed Shift Knob Wouldn’t Sell Well in Winterfell

DIY 3D Printed Shift Knob Wouldn’t Sell Well in Winterfell
Last year we saw a 3D printed shift knob case for a functional hack. This mod by Instructables member haqnmaq has a similar but more frivolous purpose. Using a Kinect and a couple of free 3D scanning and modeling software, haqnmaq was able to turn a scale model of his head into a shift knob.

DIY 12-Foot Inflatable Death Star: Your Lack of an Air Compressor is Disturbing

Everyone loves amusement park rides. Will Pemble and his son Lyle are no different. They love to visit amusement parks and ride the roller coasters. So naturally, one day, when returning home from an amusement park, Lyle asked, “Why don’t we build our own roller coaster, Dad?” The rest is history.
