Building a Massive 2-Ton, $100,000 Thor’s Hammer

Building a Massive 2-Ton, $100,000 Thor’s Hammer
Because dream it, and, with enough funding, you can achieve it, the gang at the Hacksmith channel on YouTube went and constructed a massive 2-ton version of Thor’s Hammer, Mjolnir. Admittedly, that is probably the largest Thor’s hammer I have ever seen.

Giant Metal Razor Blades: For the Quickest Shave

Giant Metal Razor Blades: For the Quickest Shave
Because art means different things to different people, Lance Barnett of Etsy shop BarnettPrototyping creates giant reproductions of double-sided razor blades. While typical razor blades measure about 1.5″ wide, these measure a respectable 5″ wide, 2.75″ tall, and 0.25″ thick – more than three times the size of a normal blade.

Artist Crafts a Chicken Leg Knife: Cock-A-Doodle-Dagger

Artist Crafts a Chicken Leg Knife: Cock-A-Doodle-Dagger
Proving that art isn’t dead, it’s just gotten extremely esoteric, Berlin, Germany-based artist and inventor Uri Tuchman crafted a beautiful wood and metal dagger inspired by the shape of a chicken leg. Now you can carve your chicken with a chicken!

Metal Geometric Shark Chandelier: You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Room

Metal Geometric Shark Chandelier: You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Room
Crafted by maker of geometric metal art Martin Taylor of Etsy shop Chromaforms, this Hanging Geometric Low Poly Shark Sculpture with LED Lights “transforms any space into a sea-scape.” Obviously, I must have one for my Back to the Future Enchantment Under the Sea Dance party that’s coming up.

Hand-cut Hand Saw Scenes: Cutting Edge Art

Hand-cut Hand Saw Scenes: Cutting Edge Art
You’re looking at a series of old hand saws that have been cut into various scenes of rural living (plus Bigfoot). Cindy Chinn (aka thesawlady) of Chester, Nebraska hand cuts these using a plasma torch. Note to self: buy yourself a plasma torch, you deserve it.

Motorcycle Beer Can Chicken Stands: Born to Be Barbecue

Motorcycle Beer Can Chicken Stands: Born to Be Barbecue
Just when I thought you couldn’t make beer can chicken any better, Etsy seller Tom’s RiDICKulous Things (real mature, Tom!) starts manufacturing these motorcycle beer can chicken holders. I can already close my eyes and sense the jealousy of all my friends when I lift the grill lid and they see this easy rider.

Battle: it can come at you in the blink of an eye. So why not be prepared for combat with this medieval chain mail shirt and coif available from the Medieval Warrior Store on Amazon (affiliate link).

Muzen Wild Mini Bluetooth Speaker Review: Small But Mighty Good

Muzen Wild Mini Bluetooth Speaker Review: Small But Mighty Good
There are countless Bluetooth speakers to choose from these days, so if audio companies want people to take notice, you have to do something pretty different. The Muzen Wild Mini speaker is just that. Measuring about 3″ high x 2.25″ wide x 1.375″ deep, this ultra-compact speaker is small enough to carry in the palm of your hand, but this tiny speaker punches way above its class in build and sound quality.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Put a Ring on It with the PhotoRing Magic Grip for Smartphones

Put a Ring on It with the PhotoRing Magic Grip for Smartphones
Have you ever dropped your phone? While you could protect it with a case, there’s another way which will keep you from dropping it in the first place. This nifty device attaches to the back of your phone, and adds a ring which ensures your phone won’t ever slip out of your hand.

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.

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 in Inception.

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.
