LANDBEARSHARK Motorized Skateboard with Treads: Another Way to Die?

LANDBEARSHARK Motorized Skateboard with Treads: Another Way to Die?
Ever since I first saw motorized skateboards, I always thought that there were a really great way to get around. Now that I’m older and saner, I know for a fact that these contraptions can’t be too safe, especially when you don’t have many ways of slowing down.

Red Bull Creation Asks Makers to Make, Well, Something Cool

Red Bull Creation Asks Makers to Make, Well, Something Cool
I usually associate the Red Bull name with large amounts of caffeine, and maybe the occasional cool extreme sports event, but this is the first time the Red Bull name is connected with the DIY/Maker movement – other than the mass-quantities of the sugary concoction geeks down on a regular basis, and the ridiculous “flying” machines which find their way to the Red Bull Flugtag.

It looks like someone is taking the whole steampunk thing a bit too far with this steam-powered record player. Would you want one? Seriously, I wouldn’t. My Technics SL1200s does the job fine. However, this thing is still pretty amazing.

Game Racing Ottoman
I don’t know what possessed an Australian modder to come up with this hack, but I have to say that I’m surprised that it hasn’t popped up before. Lyshco is a member of the Overclockers in Australia forum and he just finished working on this racing ottoman.

Deadmau5 Halloween Mask Powered by a Netduino: Rocking to the Beats

Deadmau5 Halloween Mask Powered by a Netduino: Rocking to the Beats
Who is Deadmau5? He’s a DJ based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and he’s mostly known for wearing these crazy masks during his live sets, that kind of look like a dead mouse. He was recently featured in an episode of CSI called Pool Shark and let me tell you that I must have watched the opening scene about 10 times because the music was so good (if you’re wondering, it was the track Some Chords that was playing).
