LEGO Letterpress Proves There Are Few Things LEGO Can’T Do

Mechanicards Are Part Greeting Part Kinetic Sculpture

Mechanicards Are Part Greeting Part Kinetic Sculpture
I am not a card person. I rarely read them if you send them to me and if you don’t send them to me I won’t think twice about it. There are some people who are card people though and if you are the sort of card person that likes…

Can Grandma’S Scooter Can Hit 69mph?

Can Grandma’S Scooter Can Hit 69mph?
I am sure that we have all been out and about at one time or another and ran across someone that had to ride one of those scooters to get around for some reason. Those things can be painfully slow when you are walking behind one trying to shop. A…

Steampunk Iron Man Costume is Better Than the Second Movie

Steampunk Iron Man Costume is Better Than the Second Movie
I really liked the first Iron Man flick. My son was too young to go and see the original in the theater, but he wanted to go see the second flick back at the beginning of the summer. We both walked out feeling that the movie sucked. The thing was…

Chumby-Headed Robot: Going Everywhere Slowly

Chumby-Headed Robot: Going Everywhere Slowly
Eric Gregori‘s new clever robot has a Chumby head and can walk around, albeit slowly. What’s amazing is that there isn’t much computing power in a Chumby, yet Eric still managed to make it walk. This cute little robot uses a 3-axis Freescale accelerometer to balance. This board is mounted…

Geek Builds LEGO Mindstorms T-Shirt Folding Robot

Geek Builds LEGO Mindstorms T-Shirt Folding Robot
The most complex thing I ever built out of a set of LEGO bricks was a police station, and I did that following the directions. Real hard-core LEGO fans don’t need no stinkin’ instructions, and can turn their Mindstorms LEGO sets into robots that do things I won’t do for…

Creative Mom + Milk Jugs = Stormtrooper Mask of Awesome

Case-Mate Offers Custom Cases for Your iPhone, Touch, and Blackberry
I am not a big fan of putting cases on my iPhone. I am generally really careful with the thing and hadn’t dropped my phone in years until a few months back I dropped my 3GS and cracked the screen. Now I see that cases are necessary, but most of…

Duct Tape, Cardboard and Sharpie at-at: Awesome.

Duct Tape, Cardboard and Sharpie at-at: Awesome.
While I think it’s really cool that someone made a duct tape/sharpie AT-AT, I find it a bit ridiculous that it’s currently being sold on eBay with a starting bid of $400. Still, it’s an AT-AT made out of duct tape, so I can’t complain too much. This model is…

Man Loans Out Dslr and Gets It Back With Serious Wood

Man Loans Out Dslr and Gets It Back With Serious Wood
I learned a long time ago you never loan stuff to a friend if it is electronic. I have had netbooks come back packed with malware from friends downloading stuff they shouldn’t be and I have had stuff just plain not come back. One dude loaned out his dSLR to…

Geeky LED Jack-O-Lantern DIY Project

Predator Halloween Costume Looks Amazing but Must be Amazingly Hot
I have to say that this Predator costume by Shawn Thorsson of Petaluma, CA, is really amazing. This costume was made for Halloween 2005, but this write-up and photos are recent. I wonder what Shawn will make for this year’s Halloween? Shawn hand-sculpted most of the features of his costume,…

R2-D2 Robot Costume Holds a Dude and Moves Around
Not too long ago I mentioned that a dude had created the coolest Halloween costume ever and it was a life size power loader from Aliens the movie. That thing was epic and today we have another epic DIY costume created by a guy that is a large version of…

You know all is right with the world when geeks have a competition specifically for DIY dragsters that are powered by power tools. Tim Allen must be so proud. The annual competition in the UK is called the Power Tool Drag Racing Championships.…

Make Your Own Daleks to Take Over the World With These Amazing Plans!
You know the Daleks? Those pesky cybernetic lifeforms from Doctor Who, which are supposed to be the epitome of living and cybernetic organisms? Well, apparently if you had written to the BBC in the 1970s or 1980s asking them information about how to build your own, they would have sent…

Omg! Life-Size Aliens Power Loader Costume is Epic Halloween Awesomeness!
When it comes to DIY stuff, the most I can muster is following the directions well enough to bolt a new gadget together. If it comes to actually making all those parts you have to put together I know better than to try. A guy over on Instructables has shown…
