There are lots of types of pots out there for planting things, but most of them are simply variants of the same basic shapes. I’d rather keep my plants in something a bit geekier, like this custom-built Saturn V rocket planter by SimonRob.
Another fidget spinner. I promised myself I wouldn’t post another article about them. Because they suck. And I keep getting sucked back in because people are actually doing some interesting things with these idiotic toys. So the boss is like, write it, and I write it, but I am so done with these things.
Remember when The Backyard Scientist Kevin Kohler sliced through stuff with his rocket knife? Good times. Cool as that was, he knew he could do better, so he has now launched a 1,000° red hot rocket knife at a bunch of stuff just to see what would happen.
If you like writing with fancy pens, MB&F and Switzerland-based pen maker Caran d’Ache have created a beautiful pen in the shape of a rocket ship. It is called the Astrograph and it was four years in the making.
It looks like a rocket, but this thing is actually a motorcycle. The British brand is hoping that this sleek looking bike will nab the motorcycle land speed record. The company last held the record back in 1970 and they want it back.
Rich kids get all the cool toys – like Circu’s Rocky Rocket spaceship chair. It is a rocket shaped chair that you can climb into and pretend that you are blasting off to get away from the rest of us peasants on Earth.
This amazing table lamp shows the power and majesty of a rocket taking off. You can’t buy it, but if you think it looks awesome, as I do, you can make one yourself.
If you want to try to DIY, you’ll need this model kit, a bunch of polypropylene pillow stuffing for the clouds, as well as the instructions outlined on Tinkerings.
Kids often have trouble casting their line into the water when fishing. The Rocket Fishing Rod is designed to make it easy. All they have to do is point where you want your lure and line to go, and fire.
I have talked before about SpaceX and its woes in trying to land the first stage of one of its Falcon 9 rockets. The company has been trying to land the first stage successfully to try to make space flight cheaper and more attainable to anyone interested.
Last year, we checked out an awesome concept for a LEGO model of the Apollo 11 spacecraft and the Eagle Lunar Module. Here’s a great complementary concept from LEGO Ideas members saabfan and whatsuptoday – a model of the mission’s Saturn V rocket.
Late last week, I talked a bit about SpaceX and why it was trying to land the first stage of its rocket on a drone ship in the Pacific. SpaceX planned the third attempt at landing the rocket over the weekend, but things didn’t go to plan.
Elon Musk is a seriously cool dude. Not only does he lead Tesla in making some of the coolest EVs on the market, he is also at the helm of SpaceX, and has lots of success with sending capsules of supplies to the ISS.
SpaceX has never been shy about offering up HD video of both its successes and failures. One of my favorite SpaceX videos is the one of the rocket exploding while trying to land. SpaceX has offered up a new video that lacks explosions, but is very beautiful and serene instead.
These rocket-shaped salt and pepper mills perfect kitchen accessories for astronauts. After all, I’ve heard that the food they serve on the International Space Station isn’t very tasty, and could probably use a bit of seasoning.
Patrick Priebe is at it again. The prop maker’s latest toy is a step up from his usual laser–emitting or flame-spewing gizmos. It’s an Iron Man-themed gauntlet with a built-in model rocket launcher. It also has a palm-mounted laser, because Patrick doesn’t mess around when it comes to messing around.
