Charge Your iPhone Inside a Dinosaur

Charge Your iPhone Inside a Dinosaur
This is a DIY trend we need a lot more of: custom iPhone docks made from awesome and random objects, like toy dinosaurs. That works on so many levels that maker rockabillyjon, who posted the homemade dock to Flickr, should market the thing.

Hairsticks, for That Subtle Touch of Fandom

Hairsticks, for That Subtle Touch of Fandom
I love the less overt displays of fandom as much as I do the building of lifesize robot replicas, so I couldn’t possibly resist hairsticks decorated with little touches of iconic images from video games. Can you imagine walking behind someone with the T-virus bobbing along in their hair?

Japanese Rubber Gunman Shows Us How to Make Rubber Band Machine Guns

Japanese Rubber Gunman Shows Us How to Make Rubber Band Machine Guns
I can’t believe this isn’t the first time that a rubber band machine gun has been featured on this blog. Dammit. I wasn’t even aware that rubber band machine guns existed until I read this article at JapanProbe.

Roll Up Your Own Handbag of Holding

Roll Up Your Own Handbag of Holding
Dice are important for gamers of all types, not just fans of tabletop RPGs, so why not make a dicebag to carry your dice in? It sounds like something from Pimp My Ride, but really, it’s just a nifty project you can undertake yourself.

Connect to Your Sugar Craving With Circuit Board Candy

Connect to Your Sugar Craving With Circuit Board Candy
Cakes, cupcakes… things of the past. Relics from a ruined age. Now it’s candy, folks; if you want to make decorative, teeth-rotting sweets, it’s all about candy displays, just like this one. It’s the cutting edge!

Prepare to Welcome Your New Transforming Overlords

Prepare to Welcome Your New Transforming Overlords
Someday, people are going to learn not to mess with the dangerous technology. You’re not supposed to build an AI! Haven’t the movies taught you people anything? Apparently not, since some guy has gone and built himself a transforming robot.

Build Your Own Tesla Coil

Build Your Own Tesla Coil
And some people think junk is just, well, junk. But to the more visionary among us, that junk could be anything. Anything. Even a Tesla coil, if you’re innovative enough. This DIY Tesla coil was built entirely from items found in the garbage.

The Future is Now: DIY Gesture-Controlled Tetris

The Future is Now: DIY Gesture-Controlled Tetris
If this year’s E3 is any indication (and it’s like, the indication), then motion controls are the future. If you’re cunning and good with wires, you can even experience the future now. This is pretty basic–as strange as it is to refer to motion controlled gaming as basic–considering this glove is just a holder for an accelerometer, so that the tilt and motion of the player’s hand and wrist is used to manipulate the pieces.

Recycling at Its Wearable Best: Keyboard Earrings

Recycling at Its Wearable Best: Keyboard Earrings
Raise your hand if you don’t have or have access to an old keyboard. If you didn’t raise your hand, I’m pretty sure you’re an alien. For the rest of us… what’s a girl to do with all those old keyboards?

Pong Hat, for Playing the Classic Game With Your Eyebrows

Pong Hat, for Playing the Classic Game With Your Eyebrows
Oh, that Arduino. Is there anything you can’t accomplish with an Arduino and a little bit of know-how? Whether your project is of a serious nature, or dedicated to playing Pong with your eyebrows–like this one is–the potential here seems limitless.

That’S How She Rolls: Girl Builds Custom Katamari Controller

That’S How She Rolls: Girl Builds Custom Katamari Controller
Hackster Queen (of All Cosmos, naturally) Kellbot has created what may become the ultimate Katamari Damacy experience: a spherical controller, so you can roll while you roll. It’s enough to make me want to learn how to wire things together.

Make Your Own Tiny Starship Enterprise From Spare Parts

Make Your Own Tiny Starship Enterprise From Spare Parts
I just got back from watching the glorious new Star Trek movie, so I must have the Enterprise on the brain. And while this tiny Starship Enterprise isn’t quite as dramatic as the mammoth star vessel from the film, it’s just as cool in my book.

Super Mario Bros. in the Bedroom

Super Mario Bros. in the Bedroom
Artsy geek parents always produce the most awesome projects for their children’s bedrooms! Maybe it’s the fun of pixel art, but it seems there are tons of examples of geek kids’ decor around. Even so, this is a welcome addition to the ranks: an awesome Mario and Luigi dresser.

Repurpose That Junk Into a Smokin’ Hot Raygun

Repurpose That Junk Into a Smokin’ Hot Raygun
If you know how to turn old camera and radio parts into a real raygun, please let me know. Until that day comes (and I’m hopeful that it will!), we’ll have to settle for checking out completely awesome non-working rayguns constructed from random odds and ends.

Adorable Girly Bags and Math-Love Are Not Mutually Exclusive of One Another

Adorable Girly Bags and Math-Love Are Not Mutually Exclusive of One Another
Girls love math too, despite popular culture’s continuing efforts to prove otherwise! And that doesn’t mean you can’t also be girly, ladies; the craftster contingent, thankfully, always seems to be on hand to remind us that it’s totally feminine to be geeky–these adorable math-loving bags are part of what is becoming a fine tradition.

Star Trek iPhone: the Simple Way to Show Your Love

Star Trek iPhone: the Simple Way to Show Your Love
So with the new Star Trek movie taking critics by storm, it’s only natural that people are flocking to the franchise’s fandom ranks, and that means more and more folks are going to be slapping Star Trek insignia on anything with a semi-flat surface.
