Make Your Own Facehugger, Then Give It a Home
Few things in this life are as terrifying as a xenomorph or a facehugger. So creep out your friends and family by building your very own version of the creepy face-loving creature and its cryo-stasis tube from the Alien movies. Prop maker Odin Abbott first shows how to make a fully-poseable facehugger using coat hangers and a couple of types of foam.

Single-player Ping Pong: Table (Tennis) for One
Single player ping pong? That’s just a pipe-dream. It’s a myth. People have been chasing that dragon for years. It’s vaporware! Pie in the sky fantasy! Not anymore. The dream has become a reality. Check out the video below as The Q demonstrates how to make a wooden table tennis game for one person.

Make a Minigun from Coca-Cola Cans and Syringes
If you have some Coca-Cola cans, some lighters, and a few spare syringes just lying around, you can use them to make your own minigun. The question is, should you? Yes. Yes you should. Unless you hurt yourself, in which case, I do not endorse this idea at all. The Q Channel shows you how to make a rad minigun with a really cool design.

Deadpool Toy Blows Bubbles out of His Butt

Deadpool Toy Blows Bubbles out of His Butt
Deadpool is a snarky bastard and doesn’t mind talking about squeezing his ass into a red costume. I could definitely see Deadpool trying to blow bubbles using farts. Instructables contributor Britt Michelsen posted a step-by-step guide for turning one of those rude BUB-L Breezer toys into a Deadpool toy of farting, bubbly glory. The base toy looks nothing like Deadpool so you have to use modeling clay, paint, primer spray, and elbow grease to make it work.

Kniterate Personal Knitting Machine Will Put Grandma out of Business

Kniterate Personal Knitting Machine Will Put Grandma out of Business
My Mamaw (that’s grandmother for you yankees out there) used to knit all the time. She was big on making blankets with yarn that had enough open space to be terrible at keeping you warm, and were itchy enough to drive you mad.

These days you can pay for things in all kinds of electronic ways, but if you still find yourself with a bunch of coins, here is a fun way to sort them. The Q channel shows us how to make a coin sorting machine using just cardboard, a knife, a metal ruler, and some glue.

Duck Tape Turns up at WonderCon with Cosplay Repair Booth

Duck Tape Turns up at WonderCon with Cosplay Repair Booth
We like cosplay around here, despite the fact that I am not much for dressing up (I even shun pants). People who like to go to conferences like ComicCon or WonderCon are a bit more enthusiastic about getting dressed up than I am. 

Tracer’s Pulse Pistols from Overwatch Recreated in LEGO

Tracer’s Pulse Pistols from Overwatch Recreated in LEGO
A LEGO fanatic calling himself Nick Brick has taken Tracer’s pulse pistols right off the screen of Overwatch and made them into LEGO brick sculptures. The builds are very cool and look very much like the pistols Tracer uses in the game. Each of the pistols has 1063 LEGO bricks in the build for a total of 2126 bricks for both pistols.

How to Make an Origami Millennium Falcon

How to Make an Origami Millennium Falcon
Sure, she may be made of paper and is susceptible to fire. Sure, she can be crushed easily, but this Millennium Falcon origami ship can deliver some killer paper cuts to the Empire. She’s a fast ship alright, but fast to build?

This Role of Tape Rolling Through an Obstacle Course Is So Cool

This Role of Tape Rolling Through an Obstacle Course Is So Cool
Give a geek some cardboard, wood, and a roll of tape and he will cook up a very slick little obstacle course for said roll of tape. I don’t know what it is about this course that I find so mesmerizing. I’m watching and thinking no way is that tape going to make it through the the slots cut in that cardboard, but it does.

World’s Tiniest Game Boy Is Perfect for Your Key Chain

World’s Tiniest Game Boy Is Perfect for Your Key Chain
What you’re looking at is probably the world’s smallest fully-functional Game Boy Color. It can play all of the games using the tiny direction pad and buttons, with the onboard display and battery. Most of us can’t even play it, because our fingers are too big. It was created by Sprite_TM who wanted a more portable version of the classic Nintendo handheld.

Orpheus Sad Music Machine Robot

Orpheus Sad Music Machine Robot
Build your own robot. Not the evil killer kind that scientists like building, but a cool robot buddy for your desk. You can assemble this DIY robot from a kit from laser-cut wood pieces. He looks super cool. His name is Orpheus and he even plays a sad tune when you crank the handle.

Fully-functional Fallout 4 Laser Rifle Still Won’t kill Preston Garvey

Fully-functional Fallout 4 Laser Rifle Still Won’t kill Preston Garvey
It’s probably safe to say that the least liked character in the Fallout 4 realm is Preston Garvey. He’s super annoying. His laser musket is also super lame. I mean there are weapons everywhere and he keeps using a freaking musket you have to crank to load.
