LEGO Macintosh: The Only Time I Want to See My Apple Bricked
Ah, the original Macintosh computer. It was an amazing machine to have in your home, especially when most of the other available computers were a bit more complex to use. The Macintosh made things easier, with its graphical user interface, and apps like MacPaint and MacWrite.

…and to the dentist’s office. Etsy seller Hans Chung has created the opposite of the camera that looks like a chocolate bar. I wonder which of the two is stranger. You be the judge. Behold! A life-size chocolate replica of the Canon D60, including a lens and battery grip.

HL2 Gravity Gun Replicas Coming to ThinkGeek, Newton’s Laws Still Apply

We’ve seen plenty of geeky room makeovers in the past months. There was the TARDIS room, the Skyrim basement and the spaceship bedroom.

Elder Scrolls Keening Dagger Replica: Quick, Hide the Heart of Lorkhan Replica
Confession bear time: I’ve never played any Elder Scrolls game, mostly because I don’t enjoy open world games. Which means I don’t know how unusual the weapons in the series can get. Maybe there’s one made from balloons or whatever balloons are called in the games.

Pip-Boy 3000 Made from Picture Frame 2012

Pip-Boy 3000 Made from Picture Frame 2012
Last year we saw a prototype for an unwearable Pip-Boy 3000, which involved using a smartphone to create a replica that was functional, or at least interactive. This hack is not as high tech, because it only uses a digital picture frame, but at least it’s wearable.

Valve Portal Turret Replica is Different from All Other Portal Turret Replicas
…by different I mean it looks exactly the same as the famous robot from Portal 2. An achingly short video of the replica was posted at Valve’s Facebook account, with no further details provided other than an acknowledgement from the Valve Store Facebook account, which said “Hello friend.”
