LEGO builders: their level of ingenuity never ceases to amaze me. Case in point, this mod created by programmer (not singer) James Brown, who managed to pack a tiny OLED display into a translucent brick to mimic a LEGO computer terminal.
Because dream it, and you can achieve it (even if that dream takes way too much time that could probably be better spent doing something else entirely), YouTuber Peter Knetter deconstructed a GameBoy Advance SP to remove the hardware, then built a custom case INCLUDING CONTROLS entirely out of cardboard, then put the hardware inside to create a functional cardboard GameBoy Advance SP.
Crafted by car kit maker and Florida Man Mike Vetter, the ETV (Extra Terrestrial Vehicle) is a custom body kit that makes cars look like their gullwing doors are about to open and a bunch of bug-eyed aliens are going to crawl out with laser blasters to conquer earth.
Furbies have always been a little creepy to me – perhaps it’s that I’ve seen what they look like on the inside that did it, or maybe it’s just their hypnotic eyeballs. Either way, they’re already pretty weird looking straight from the toy factory.
One of the many things that’s cool about the Nintendo Switch is how people are coming up with creative ways to dock the handheld. Most of the docks I’ve seen keep the screen hidden. In this case, the dock turns the Switch into a tiny pinball machine instead.
Let’s face it. For as cute as Furbies were supposed to be, more often than not, they’re kind of creepy. People have done some really crazy stuff with these electronic pets over the years, from slicing in two with a waterjet, to turning them into an insane musical instrument.
The Nintendo GameCube and Wii both offered up lots of fun and classic video games. But neither console was particularly portable, so the only way you could play those games on the go would be via software emulation.
LEGO makes a huge number of really cool kits. But if you want to make your LEGO constructions just that much more awesome, check out these lighting kits from Vonado. The New York-based company custom designs lighting sets for off-the-shelf LEGO kits, giving models an even more finished, dynamic, and engaging look.
Despite its primitive looks, MineCraft is an immensely capable game-building tool. Over the years, I’ve seen some insanely creative and complicated levels built using the game’s blocky elements. Recently, one enterprising MineCraft fan created a really amazing thing – it’s a playable version of the game that lives inside of a chest inside of the game.
YouTube channel AcademeG found a cheap Bentley Continental GT (are they ever actually cheap?) and created this monster off-road version. In this case it probably was cheap since it had so many problems with the engine.
I’ve always preferred riding mountain bikes to road and hybrid bikes, thanks to their wider and more forgiving tires and suspension systems. I’ve seen some fat tire bikes before, but nothing quite like this. What you’re looking at here is a bike that rides on actual car tires.
Super Mario 64 is still considered one of the greatest video games of all time. Its combination of great 3D platforming and innovative control and camera scheme was pretty groundbreaking when it first came out back in 1996.
Samsung has not had an easy time lately, what with their exploding smartphones and washing machines, but the good news is that the worst seems to be behind them. Mostly. The Internet will make sure that the tale lives on though, via YouTube clips like this one.
The original NES Zapper is one of the most iconic video game controllers of all time. At best, it was great fun, and at worst it was a source of frustration. The most damage you could do with one was maybe throw it across the room at your kid brother – until now.
In Fallout 4, It never fails that right after I jump over to my favorite settlement, strip out of my power armor, and use the last of my aluminum and adhesive to repair my battle damage, I run into a Deathclaw.
