Divoom Pixoo Max Takes Pixel Art to the Max

This Pac-Man “Neon” Light Is Pretty A-Maze-ing
We know that Pac-Man has a thing for dots and ghosts. And while the yellow dot-gobbler and his ghostly enemies look pretty great as pixel art, I think they’re even better all lit up in neon.

Make Your Own Light-Up D20 with 2,400 LEDs
The brainchild of maker Greg Daville, this is an LED icosahedron crafted using a total of 2,400 LEDs, all placed individually by hand. Wow! I’m not sure if I would have had the patience for that, but I definitely don’t have the know-how to build an LED D20.

Geek Builds Electronic Counter to Count to a Googol (1 Followed by a Hundred 0’s)
Think a billion is a big number? Well by most comparisons it certainly is, but a googol (10¹⁰⁰) is so astronomically large that it contains 10⁹¹ number of billions. But did its ridiculously large size stop YouTuber Look Mum No Computer (aka Sam Battle) from building an electronic counter to try to count to it?

How to Use 7-Segment LEDs Not as They Were Intended

How to Use 7-Segment LEDs Not as They Were Intended
Those familiar red 7-segment LEDs are designed to each display an individual digit, or if you’re 8-year-old me, maybe to string together some letters, like “8008135” that I used to think was me being clever with my old Texas Instruments calculator.

Looking for a unique piece of furniture for your living room or game room? Well, skip the IKEA and go for something a bit more geeky, I say. This cool coffee table has LEDs built into its top which can display a colorful light show, or even play simple video games.

This Jellyfish Ceiling Lamp Won’t Sting

This Jellyfish Ceiling Lamp Won’t Sting
Jellyfish are some of the most fascinating creatures on the planet. If you’ve ever looked at them up close at the aquarium, they look like they have nothing inside of them, yet somehow they’re able to swim around and eat plankton.

Dungeons and Dragons D20 Lamp Lights up Your Game
If you’re into Dungeons and Dragons or any other tabletop gaming, then you might want to give this lamp a tumble. You see, it looks just like a 20-sided die (aka “D20”), only bigger… like 10 times bigger.

This Minecraft Creeper Lamp Shouldn’t Explode When You Turn It On

This Minecraft Creeper Lamp Shouldn’t Explode When You Turn It On
If there’s one thing Minecraft fans can rely on, it’s those green and block Creepers, and their ability to blow up at the most inopportune moments. Well, now you can keep a Creeper right on your desktop to keep an eye on it, and I’m pretty sure it won’t blow up the place.

smART Pixelator Turns Your Images Into Pixel Art Templates
I have a very soft spot in my heart for pixel art, having grown up in the 1980s with rudimentary 8-bit and 16-bit video games dominating my formative years. So I really love anything that encourages the creation of pixel-based designs.

Making an LED Clock from Ping Pong Balls
Hey kids, what time is it? Better check the ping pong balls to find out! When turned off, this unique clock looks like a bunch of ping pong balls in a picture frame, but when activated, it turns into a bright and colorful digital clock.

This LED Wall Clock Is Accurate to 1/100th of a Second

This LED Wall Clock Is Accurate to 1/100th of a Second
