Bitplay’s BANG! lamp adds a cool twist to remote control, but in my opinion its gimmick is not worth $400 (USD). If you have the tools, you might be better off copying Instructables member Austin aka austiwawa.
Remember that kid that solved a Rubik’s Cube in 5.25-seconds? He’s a sloth compared to the robot that Jay Flatland and his pal Paul Rose created. The motorized ‘bot has a 3D-printed frame, and is controlled by an Arduino and custom software running on a Linux PC.
Thanks to Simone Fontana, you don’t have to risk irradiation and death at the hands of a super behemoth to get the legendary Furious Power Fist. Simone designed a 3D model of the unique Fallout 4 weapon and is sharing it for free.
It may no longer be the cheapest chip on the block, but Next Thing Co.’s C.H.I.P. is still a pretty good computer. But in this case, it’s been used for a very bad mod. Next Thing Co.’s software and hardware developer Andrew Langley used it to extend a Teddy Ruxpin’s speech feature, allowing it to say anything you want.
Instructables employee DJ aka Aleator777 – the genius behind the Apple II and retro phone watches – recently promoted the Intel Edison by creating the Miniature Autonomous Blimp. This brainy balloon can stay afloat and avoid obstacles on its own.

I’ve seen some crazy LEGO stuff over the years, from artists creating portraits using nothing but bricks, to epic life-size builds. I lack any of the skills needed to make anything resembling a self-portrait in LEGO.
It took a really long time before R2-D2 got an accurate LEGO model. I wouldn’t be surprised if BB-8 gets fast tracked, but until then you might want to inspect this model made by Redditor hendrikdejager.
Mechanical engineering student Daniel Olson helps the Empire rise again with his design for a miniature motorized AT-AT. You’ll need an electric motor and a 9V battery to make it move, but the rest of its parts are 3D printable, even the gears that connect the legs to the motor.
Nearly all sundials tell the time by using a gnomon’s shadow as the hour hand. But this very cool sundial by Thingiverse member Mojoptix displays the time like a digital timepiece.
Mojoptix used OpenSCAD to design a gnomon with many tiny holes.

One of Hearthstone‘s tried and tested decks is the control Warrior, also nicknamed “wallet Warrior” because it requires many rare cards. Redditor cube_man99 made a visual pun as a gift for a friend who loves playing with the deck.
Laser enthusiast Styropyro saw Allen Pan’s blowtorch lightsaber and decided to outshine it by making his own energy blade. It’s as scary as you think.
Styropyro used a Nichia Gallium (III) Nitride laser to make his lightsaber.
