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
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.

Bust With Hidden Light Switch: Holy DIY Batman!
I’m sure there are ready-to-use replicas of Batman’s Shakespeare bust (the one with the hidden switch) that you can buy somewhere – in fact we featured one a few years ago. But if you’ve got the skills and the tools, you can try making your own by following the guide made by The New Hobbyist.

Wise Clock 3: DIY Pong Clock for Under $100
While initially I thought that this was a Pong clock, it’s actually much cooler: it’s a DIY Pong clock. It combines many of my obsessions, including DIY, retro video games, and digital clocks.

Plant Whisperer Emits Creepy Robotic Reminders to Water Your Plant

Plant Whisperer Emits Creepy Robotic Reminders to Water Your Plant
Instructables member jeff-o has a problem – he “tends to kill plants”. But it’s not like he gets the urge to tear them apart or trample them, he just forgets to water them. So he’s giving his plants a voice, by way of his plant whisperer.

Turn 3D Glasses Into 2D Glasses: How Sad is It That We Have to Do This?

Turn 3D Glasses Into 2D Glasses: How Sad is It That We Have to Do This?
I don’t know about you guys but I’m no fan of 3D movies. At best they’re distracting, and at worst they give me headaches. Fortunately, the folks at Tested have figured out a pretty simple way of watching 3D movies in glorious 2D, although you might not want to follow the first step of their how-to, which is “steal two pairs of 3D glasses from a theater”.

Crochet Android Figure is Proof that Grandma Really Likes Technology

Crochet Android Figure is Proof that Grandma Really Likes Technology
My grandmother was a serious crochet fan. She had one of those bags she took with her everywhere, and if she sat long out came the giant spikes and snick, snick she would be making blankets and hats like the wind.

Steampunk CD Player Ready to Play Industrial Tunes
While this CD player isn’t as hardcore steampunk as the vinyl player we featured a couple of months back, the craftmanship is really great. Steampunker extracted the guts of a plain CD player and speakers and decked them in brass and wood.

Flamethrower Gloves Ready to Burn Down The House

Flamethrower Gloves Ready to Burn Down The House
All I’m going to say here is “do not try this at home”… The guys at J&M Special Effects put together a set of DIY flamethrowers that are mounted on his gloves, firing intense, scalding flames from the palms of his hands.

Caseable Custom Laptop Cases Give Your Notebook Some Extra Personality
If you are the sort that has to be unique, that can be hard to do if your computer of choice is a notebook. With a desktop PC, there is enough room to get fancy with case mods and such, but not so much on a notebook.

Ok guys, you can all thank me for this later. I have found the perfect gift that shows your girl you love her, and lets you flex your geek muscle at the same time. Over on Etsy you can pick up this set of butterfly earrings.

The Low-Budget iPod Touch Phone

The Low-Budget iPod Touch Phone
Thanks to the ZTE Peel, iPod Touch owners can easily convert their gadget into an iPhone. But if the device isn’t available in your area – or you’re just plain cheap – Lifehacker reader Kevin has a solution: Kevin used the plastic packaging of his 3rd generation iPod Touch as an anchor for the stock earphones, meaning this mod cost him zero dollars. 

RC Copter Hunts Hydrogen-Filled Balloons

RC Copter Hunts Hydrogen-Filled Balloons
I have tried my hand at flying remote control helicopters a few times. Once the copter flew away never to be seen again. I suspect this was a response to seeing how poorly I landed my RC plane.
