Some Incredible Coke + Mentos

0

It’s simply fun to watch.  I don’t know what the world record is.  Or why he’s using Nutella.  All I do know is that it was a joy to watch a grown man have that much excitement.  The video is way better then the reddit gif originally makes it out to be.

Blue Marble Machine

That was pretty neat.  Apparently, it took him 3 months to make that.  I can see why.  All the resetting, and rejiggering and accidentally bumping things.  It’s madness, but also pretty ace.

Skyline Shades

0

The Ukraine company HoleRoll has these ace blackout blinds for windows.  Through (I assume) laser cutting fabric and material, you get a gorgeous shadow/lightbox view of either the Manhattan Skyline, the London Skyline, or the general night sky.  Unfortunately, the prices are quite high – $178 for one pane of the panel.  That’s the base … Continued

Would you like a Kool Kandy Kane?

0

Candy Canes are a traditional Christmas delicacy.  And I use the word delicacy lightly.  It’s not exactly rare.  It is one of those things though that you really only see at one time of the year.  If you ever wondered how they are made, here are a series of videos curtesy of MAKE that show … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: – The Shoreline

0

You would think that the weight of the concrete, steel, glass, asphalt, and all the other crap that’s above ground would be quite high.  You would be correct, but you would also be wrong.  It’s a tricky situation.  When the subways of Manhattan were flooded, the city started to float.  Not the island itself, rather the … Continued

The 2017 MarbleLympics

0

I stumbled on the qualification round for the 2017 MarbleLympics last night.  I proceeded to watch the first 4 events before I realized the time.  This morning I finished the entire games.  What a rush of excitement it was.  I won’t give many spoilers, except to say that there were plenty of upsets and new … Continued

What is it with the Star Wars posts lately?  Oh, that’s right Episode VIII is going to come out next month.  That’s right.  It better not suck though.  The trailer has me worried, it looks an awful lot like The Empire Strikes Back.  I mean, look at it – Walkers on a snow planet, Jedi … Continued

LEGO Jakku

This is a pretty neat diorama of a mix of LEGO scenes from the sequel trilogy.  What you can’t see from the photo is the moving ships that go around the perimeter.  Reddit video doesn’t let me embed it for some reason, so you’ll have to venture over there. {reddit}

So Many Faucets

0

Seriously, who knew that the lonely faucet had so many new ways to operate?  If you don’t believe me, search for “faucet” on Yanko Design, (or just click that link).  At the time of this writing, there’s 13 pages worth.  Sure, some of them are stupid crazy things, but some are actually pretty neat. This … Continued

This House is Ace

0

Look at this nice unassuming cardboard house.  It looks like something a middle schooler would build for an art project doesn’t it?  Well, hopefully it is, because when you turn it around, you’ll notice that the inside of this house is actually a fully functional PC. It’s neat, but it looks like a pretty crappy … Continued
