Some dads are truly awesome. Like Minnesota Savvysherpa, Inc research scientist Paul Boswell. He is a truly cool dad, having built a working hovercraft for his son, Oliver.
You can watch the video below and see the kid put it through its paces.
If you want a place to keep your money or favorite snacks safe from theives, but you want one made of something supremely strong like thin top-grade plywood you are in luck. ThinkGeek has a DIY kit from UGears that lets you build a small combination safe from pre-cut plywood parts.
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.
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.
Portable DIY gaming units have been popular for a long time, and with the launch of the tiny, wireless-capable Raspberry Pi Zero W, it seems like a great time to get back to making these small handhelds.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I admit to being many, many years behind on Harry Potter. I only started watching the movies this last weekend because I ran out of episodes of Westworld and got bored. It turns out the flicks are actually pretty good, and I am almost done with the series.
