Machete Shooting Slingshot is the Most Awesome Accident Waiting to Happen Ever
I would imagine in a zombie invasion DIY geeks are going to be a sought after addition to any still-living crew looking to beat back the undead. This dude is going to have to redefine his machete-chunking slingshot though before the zombie apocalypse comes.

Digital Pong Table Takes Four Players on a Boring Retro Adventure
When I was a kid my dad owned a car lot. One day, he came home with the Pong game that the had taken as a down payment on a car. That Pong game was as boring then when it was new as it is now, but it certainly started something for a bunch of gamers like me growing up in the 80’s.

Atari Joystick Jewelry Box: 8-Bit Fashion

Atari Joystick Jewelry Box: 8-Bit Fashion
While I don’t really need a jewelry box, I have to say that this one does look pretty awesome. It’s perfect for the retro gamer geek or geekette to store jewelry and other stuff that needs to be hidden away.

Steampunk Mouse: More Like Evil Mad Scientist Mouse

Steampunk Mouse: More Like Evil Mad Scientist Mouse
The brain inside Peter Balch’s steampunk mouse may be fake – at least that’s what Balch says – but it’s as creepy as the steampunk mouse with sheep skull on it. Also, I can’t figure out how you’re supposed to hold this thing.

DIY Mario Coin Block Actually Coughs Up Coins When Punched
We’ve featured several real world versions of the classic Super Mario Bros. coin block, but this one made by Bruno Pasquini tops them all, because it works just like its video game counterpart – punch its bottom and coins come out!

Giant LED Cube Uses 512 LEDs to Illuminate Builder’s Geekiness
If a dancing Borg cube of light sounds cool to you, get ready for a nerdgasm. A geek named Nick has taken 512 LEDs and cobbled them all together into a massive cube. He then hooked all those LEDs up to STP16CP LED sink drivers to reduce the components in the build.

PolyPly Stand is Perfect for the Apple Gear Polygamist

PolyPly Stand is Perfect for the Apple Gear Polygamist
There is a technical term known as the shit-ton, which I learned in college. It’s hard to quantify a shit-ton of anything (technically it’s more than a butt-load), but we all know it when we see it.

LED Lamps Made from Old Polaroid Cameras

LED Lamps Made from Old Polaroid Cameras
Geeks never cease to amaze me with the things they can think up – and then sell to other geeks. Take this dude, Dan Riordan. He has made a small business over on Etsy out of taking Polaroid cameras and making them into lamps.

DIY Giant KitKat Bar Has 36,000+ Calories

DIY Giant KitKat Bar Has 36,000+ Calories
I am writing this story quietly with my office door shut. You see, my son LOVES KitKat bars. I’m talking he would live off the things if you let him. We buy them in bulk at Sam’s Club and he eats one every day after school for a snack.

How to Build a Digital Pinball Machine [DIY]

How to Build a Digital Pinball Machine [DIY]
I had a real pinball machine growing up that was gigantic and so loud it drove my parents crazy. We had to unplug the thing at night or you could hear it across the street. I don’t have room in my house today for a real pinball machine, and I bet most of you don’t either.

N64Boy Advance: Game Boy Grows Up

N64Boy Advance: Game Boy Grows Up
Modders really love the Nintendo 64 – the sheer number of portable mods we’ve featured here on the site tells us that much. Hailrazer is no stranger to the portable console scene, and he’s back with another beautifully done portable N64 mod, which he calls the N64Boy Advance, which is pretty appropriate considering how it looks:

Bluetooth Glove: From Headset to Handset

Bluetooth Glove: From Headset to Handset
Here’s an adorably childish hack from Rachel, the Lead Java Developer at Instructables. She stuffed the guts of a Bluetooth headset into a glove in such a way that she could actually talk on the phone by making that gesture we usually make when pretending to talk on the phone:

DIY Pulse Laser Pistol is So Much Better than a Laser Pointer

DIY Pulse Laser Pistol is So Much Better than a Laser Pointer
I am a big fan of lasers and laser guns. Sure, they are mostly the stuff of science fiction, but the military is making some great advances in using lasers on the battlefield today. I want something a bit more portable than a laser that needs an entire jet to carry though, and a geek named Patrick Priebe has made it.

Pixel Trash Can: For Real World Deleting

Pixel Trash Can: For Real World Deleting
Inspired by this template for a papercraft 8-bit trash can, Instructables member BrittLiv decided to make a functional version out of plywood. It seems roomy enough that a whole computer could be dumped inside. Since it’s made out of wood, the pixel trash can is quite heavy – BrittLiv reckons it weighs about 7 to 9 lbs.

LEGO iMac May Send LEGO-Loving Apple Fans to Their Graves

LEGO iMac May Send LEGO-Loving Apple Fans to Their Graves
If you ask me, LEGO has a lot in common with apps for the iPhone. Anything you want to build can probably be made out of LEGO, and anything you want to do on a phone; there’s an app for it.
