The “Smorgasboard” Is a Keyboard with Only Food Keycaps

The “Smorgasboard” Is a Keyboard with Only Food Keycaps
Because I write thousands and thousands of words every week, I got myself a fancy $200 mechanical keyboard with good clicky switches and schmancy RGB backlighting just for fun. I’ve thought about getting some custom keycaps too, but I don’t think I’d be able to type very fast if all of my keys were made to look like food.

When Is a Shoe Not a Shoe? When It’s a Cake, Naturally.

When Is a Shoe Not a Shoe? When It’s a Cake, Naturally.
I’ve heard the old expression “I’ll eat my hat” when betting on something improbable. But I’ve never heard anyone say, “I’ll eat my shoe.” But I’d definitely eat my shoe if it were actually a delicious cake.

I Have Concrete Evidence These Gadgets Won’t Ever Work

I Have Concrete Evidence These Gadgets Won’t Ever Work
Normally, electronics require circuit board, electricity, and various other parts in order to function. So I can say with 100% certainty that gadgets made from concrete will not function no matter how much you want them to.

This Angel Statue Was Made from 100,000 Knives

This Angel Statue Was Made from 100,000 Knives
What is the deadliest statue ever? All of them, because they can fall and crush you. But one is even deadlier than the rest. This Knife Angel statue was built from over 100,000 knives which were confiscated by UK police.

Pringles Man Made from Pringles Can

Pringles Man Made from Pringles Can
Despite the fact that they’re not actually potato chips, but are some kind of smooshed up potato mush, Pringles are still pretty tasty. As you know, these crispy snacks come stacked in a cylindrical can, with Pringles’ iconic mustachioed mascot on front.

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.

Giant LEGO Han Solo Minifig Gets Frozen in Carbonite

Giant LEGO Han Solo Minifig Gets Frozen in Carbonite
A group of LEGO builders recently built a giant 8-foot by 4-foot LEGO Han Solo in carbonite. Because why not? It was made to promote the 2020 release of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo aka E3.

Chevy Finds New Brick Roads with a Full-size LEGO Silverado Truck

Chevy Finds New Brick Roads with a Full-size LEGO Silverado Truck
It’s awesome to see people build big things with LEGO bricks. Chevrolet teamed up with students from the Oxford Community School’s First LEGO League, and Detroit’s Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary’s A World in Motion Program to unveil a full-size replica of the Silverado truck made entirely of LEGO bricks.

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.

2001’s Spaceship Recreated in Gingerbread Form

2001’s Spaceship Recreated in Gingerbread Form
2001: A Space Odyssey is a classic in just about every sense of the word. Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke created a true masterpiece. Douglas Trumbull’s miniatures and visual effects even rival today’s movies. It’s definitely one of my favorite films of all time.

Low-Poly Papercraft Sculptures by Oxygami

Low-Poly Papercraft Sculptures by Oxygami
There’s something about art made with rudimentary low-polygon count forms that I find very appealing. I think it’s because it harkens back to early 1990s video games like Virtua Fighter and the original Tomb Raider. If you like the style as much as I do, then check out this awesome collection of papercraft art from Oxygami.

These Instant Noodle Warriors Are Anything But Soft and Chewy

These Instant Noodle Warriors Are Anything But Soft and Chewy
Some people really love Japanese instant ramen noodles, but these people have been missing out by just eating them. Did you know that you can sculpt with them? Taishi Arimura does just that, making instant noodle warrior sculptures.

Epic Life-size Iron Man Contains a Working PC

Epic Life-size Iron Man Contains a Working PC
I’ve seen some pretty amazing case mods over the years, but this life-size Iron Man PC might just be the most incredible PC build yet. Pro system builder Jengki Wmp of World Media Plus created this life-size sculpture of Iron Man in his Mk.

Building a Massive Rubik’s Cube

Building a Massive Rubik’s Cube
When I was a kid, people who could solve a Rubik’s Cube were a rare thing. Nowadays, there are entire leagues dedicated to solving them as quickly as possible, and even guys who can solve them while wakesurfing or juggling.

Where the Wild Things Are Gets the Balloon Animal Treatment

Where the Wild Things Are Gets the Balloon Animal Treatment
Despite it being a little trippy, Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are is still one of my favorite books from my childhood. As our young protagonist Max enters the world of the Wild Things, he encounters a variety of wondrous and scary looking beasts, yet manages to win them over and become their king.
