Last July, we checked out Mike Schropp’s Micro LEGO computer. Here’s another custom made but more discreet mini PC. Made by French company Kubb, the Wood Kubb is a 4.9 cubic inch computer with swappable handmade wooden shells.
Etsy shop MiraCrafts not only makes chocobos, it also has bounty from Pandora. Shop owner Marika can hand sculpt – or at least she’ll try to – any character, weapon or item from the Borderlands series into a 3D pendant.
We already have a wealth of options for traveling short distances in urban areas. Bicycles, skateboards and scooters are getting smaller and lighter, with electrically-assisted variants to choose from. But if Cocoa Motors’ WalkCar is for real, we might be seeing this all over cities in a couple of years.
A couple of years ago we checked out OpenGlass, a prototype software that used Google Glass to help the visually impaired identify objects. OrCam has a very similar function. It has a camera that clips on to eyeglasses and recognizes text, faces and objects.
We’ve seen a couple of decent replicas of Kylo Ren’s three-pronged lightsaber, but if you’re looking for a top notch build look no further than Saberforge’s wares. Its crossguard lightsabers come in four variants, each with a handle made of 6061 aluminum alloy.
Last year, we checked out a light switch that let you toggle lights just by waving your hand. Knocki lets you do that and more but by knocking or tapping on a surface.
Unlike the Clapper, Knocki doesn’t use microphones to detect knocks.
When Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man came out in 2002, Yuri Schuurkes was captivated by the movie’s take on Spidey’s costume. He wasn’t a big fan of the hero himself, but he became obsessed with Peter Parker’s crime-fighting costume.
Time is a power pellet in this retro Pac-Man wall clock. Made to celebrate the yellow gobbler’s 35th birthday – the game was first released on May 22, 1980 – the ~2ft. tall clock has a handcrafted case that looks like the game’s original arcade cabinet.
Back in March, Mike Schropp unveiled his Mini LEGO Computer. It went viral and is now a commercial success, but many people asked him for a smaller and more affordable LEGO PC. So Mike came up with the Micro LEGO Computer, a modified Intel NUC PC.
The FIFA and NBA 2K series are the reigning kings of team sports video games, but they pale in comparison to the legacy of Tecmo Super Bowl and RBI Baseball. Much of the credit goes to the fans who keep modding both NES games with updated rosters.
Wyrmwood’s dice tower system consists of a dice tower, a dice tray and a dice vault. The dice tower’s parts are held together by rare earth magnets so you can easily assemble or disassemble it. But dice towers are nothing new, and you can already buy ones that are easily taken apart.
Ed Zarick made a name for himself cramming current gen consoles into a laptop form, but so far the case mods he’s done have basic decorative details, mostly the 3D printed corner pieces. He must have realized that too, so he built this R2-D2-themed PS4 laptop to show off what he can do.
Etsy seller Legotings put together a LEGO table so chaotic it would drive Lord Business insane. The table itself is made from wood but has been covered by countless LEGO bricks. Beneath its glass top are more than 250 minifigures and other LEGO pieces.
Capcom and 3D printing licensing platform Source3 unveiled the first officially licensed 3D printed Street Fighter character at the San Diego Comic-Con. It’s a portrait of Ryu based on the cover art of the PS4 exclusive Street Fighter V, his tree trunk arms and head-sized fists popping out of the frame.
Last year, we featured the Nomad, a desktop CNC mill. Toolbotics’ Tooli is also a desktop CNC machine, but it’s meant for arts and crafts. Its four optional heads lets you automate a variety of tasks, from drawing to assembling small items.
Back in 2012, we featured Bounce Imaging’s concept for a throwable camera that could stream a 360º image to a mobile device. The device is now on sale, and while many of its proposed features didn’t make the cut its basic functions are intact.
