Halo’s Forge mode is one of those zany things that will never cease to amaze you.  Yes, there has been the more traditional death match maps made, but the video above is a version of Skee Ball, the classic arcade game where you’re not allowed to climb on the ramps. {reddit}

Interactive Wooden Landscape

This is an interesting update to the classic video The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.  However, it’s filled with recent additions to the super-hero landscape.  Sure there are some classics: The T-800, Indy, Luke, but all newer takes on the famous heroes/villains of modern times.  Plus, there’s no catchy music playing in the background.  Maybe … Continued

Wendell Kapustiak built a modern Pipe Organ.  Modern in the sense that naturally, it’s computer controlled.  The air is supplied by a modified server cooling fan. The keys are played by an Arduino.  And the songs are chosen by a web interfaced run on a Rasberry Pi. It is pretty neat, I will give him … Continued
