I’m always amazed how LEGO builders can come up with accurate representations of items using just a handful of bricks. It’s sort of like low-res pixel art – if you stand back far enough, it makes sense.
I’ve always been impressed by those model makers who can cram a tiny ship inside of a bottle, but this model has completely blown my mind. What you’re looking at here is a tiny model of a KLM Airbus A330 inside of an incandescent light bulb.
Shopping cart races were one of the more wacky things that people used to do before all the stores made it so you couldn’t remove shopping carts from their parking lots. Now you can recreate that pastime in miniature, with these remote-controlled shopping carts.
Normally you can find a V12 in the back of a Lamborghini or an Aston Martin, but you’ve never seen one this small. This is the world’s smallest V12 engine and it actually works just like the full-size versions.
Ah, insect drones. They’ve been used so much in movies and televisions shows that it was bound to become a reality someday. I remember this particular scene in that old Richie Rich movie (the one where Macaulay Culkin played Richie), when Professor Kean Bean was showing off his latest invention to Richie: a gold flying bug that was equipped with a camera.
Music lovers and enthusiasts will remember the Roland TR-808, that was actually one of the first programmable drum machines ever made.
It was introduced in the early 1980s, which actually makes it several years older than I am.
I know, I can’t believe it either. The diminutive Chobi cameras are transforming from expensive toys into… I don’t know, a line of functional collectibles? Tiny photographers looking for something more high-tech than the Chobi Cam One now have an alternative – the Chobi Cam One HD.
I have trouble understanding why anyone would want a fake 3D clone of themselves, but hey, who really understands the Japanese? One shop in Tokyo, Japan, has decided to offer realistic replicas of people to discerning customers.
Japanese design studio Powershovel has come up with a camera worthy of challenging the CHOBi mini cam for the title of World’s Most Easily Lost Camera. The CLAP digital camera measures a mere 1.4″ x 2.8 x 0.59″ and weighs only 24g.
When was a kid, my brother and I were always collecting little mini cap guns. You could put a single cap in them at a time and they would actually shoot. A Russian man has been making mini guns for decades that remind me of those cap guns from my youth.
With the foundation set by the original game, Portal 2 entertains fans not just by providing them with more puzzles to solve, but also by building on its mythos, and that involves fleshing out characters and creating new and memorable ones.
If you’ve ever spent any time at a carnival, a Dave & Busters or a Chuck E. Cheese’s you know all about the wonder that is the Skee-Ball machine. Tiny arcade builder Sam Seide decided to take the idea and make a miniature version.
I’ve written about some tiny arcade cabinets before – even a Donkey Kong machine, but never one that was this accurate – and that actually plays. All it needs are tiny Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell dolls to go with it and it would be perfect.
