Melting Metal LEGO Minifigs Like Mini Terminators

Melting Metal LEGO Minifigs Like Mini Terminators
What you’re about to watch is either a James Cameron movie with a VERY low budget, or a bunch of LEGO minifigs made out of gallium and melted for fun. It’s actually the latter, and it is very fun to watch. YouTuber DaveHax used LEGO minifig shaped ice molds to…

Giant Metal Scorpion is the Terminator of Arthropods

Giant Metal Scorpion is the Terminator of Arthropods
If there’s one critter that I think universally gives people the creeps, it’s the scorpion. While only a very small percentage are deadly enough to kill humans, they’re still pretty nasty looking creatures, and not the type of thing I’d want to run into while walking around the desert. And…

The Best Nixie Tube Watch Ever

The Best Nixie Tube Watch Ever
The first time I saw a nixie tube watch was more than a decade ago. I thought the idea was pretty rad, but to be honest, I don’t think the design of the watch lived up to the nixie tubes themselves. I also thought the two digit display was a…

This Scrap Metal Skull Sculpture Is Making Me Nuts

This Scrap Metal Skull Sculpture Is Making Me Nuts
There’s something about skull art that I find really intriguing. Perhaps it’s that skulls are something that all of us have in common, or it’s just that they remind us of our mortality. I’m really digging this skull sculpture, made from recycled bits of metal. It was made by the…

Robot Smartphone Holder Comes in Piece(s)

Robot Smartphone Holder Comes in Piece(s)
There are a million and one smartphone stands on the market, but how many of them look like a robot? Not many, I’d venture to guess. But here’s a cool robot phone stand I found from the crazy gadget guys over at Hong Kong outfit Brando. It’s made almost entirely…

These Unique Spinning Tops Would be Our Inception Tokens

These Unique Spinning Tops Would be Our Inception Tokens
If I learned anything from Leonardo DiCaprio, it’s that we all need a totem, lest we might actually be stuck in a dream within a dream. If I had to choose one, I think I’d go with a top too, but something a bit cooler than the one he had…

Molten Metal Squirt Gun Is The Death Star of Super Soakers

Molten Metal Squirt Gun Is The Death Star of Super Soakers
When the Super Soaker was first released in 1990, parents were freaked out that kids would fill the toy with harmful chemicals like bleach. But they never saw this coming – a squirt gun that blasts molten liquid metal. Thanks to Kevin Kohler—aka The Backyard Scientist, this now exists. It’s…

Tungsten Spinning Top: Spinception

Tungsten Spinning Top: Spinception
The last time I really thought about a spinning top was when DiCaprio spun one in Inception. That top was supposed to help him figure out if he was in a dream or reality. All I know is the ending left me wondering what the deal was. Are we still…

LIfe-size Junk Darth Vader Sculpture: The Rusty Lord of the Sith

Couple Takes Most Metal Engagement Photo Ever

Couple Takes Most Metal Engagement Photo Ever
I have no idea what black metal is as far as a music genre. For me, the late ’80s group Living Color comes to mind, but I’m pretty sure that’s wrong. A dude going by the name John Awesome and his fiance Nydia Hernandez were in the woods taking engagement…

Watch a Bucket of Mercury Flushed Down a Toilet

Watch a Bucket of Mercury Flushed Down a Toilet
I know what your first reaction is going to be, so let me get this out of the way. The toilet is not flushing mercury into the sewer system. This is a closed system. Now then, let’s get down to it. In this video from Youtube channel Cody’s Lab, they…
