This is pretty neat, ETM: Exploration Through Motion is an interesting view of a once static asset. A team of students from the Philadelphia University created this as their final project in Design 1. Together, they took the Thomas Moran painting “Grand Canyon of the Colorado River”, and made a 3D laser cut map diorama … Continued
Imgur user xadrian built his own LEGO Food Truck. I gotta say, the thing looks ace. There’s plenty of attention to detail on the inside. And actual flames on the side, not a baby decal. Actual. Flames. Doesn’t this guy look dangerous?
The most impressive part of this marble run is the fact that much of it is carved out of food. Look at the organic shapes made. It must have taken the guy ages to get all that detail in it. It doesn’t hurt that marble runs are just fun to watch.
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
I’m going to try something different this year for my long running Alternate History Thursday series. Instead of whatever story gets beamed into my mind while I sleep the night before, I will spend the entire year focused on one story. Yes, I tried it in the past, and I sometimes went back to that … Continued
Well, more accurately, it’s a single sub-woofer, not an entire system. And, technically, it’s made of LEGO(R) compatible blocks. But hey, let’s stop with the specifics, it’s a speaker, it’s DIY, and it’s gotten me on an urge to make my own – properly. This LEGO speaker was built by reddit user /u/FanOfSport. It’s pretty … Continued
YouTube users Sam and Niko together with their team at Corridor Digital 3-D printed an arrow casing for a GoPro. They then placed it into an air cannon and fired it. It went better than expected. The initial launch was successful, but the follow up straight up resulted in a broken GoPro. Not to worry, … Continued
Hopefully this coming winter will be better then last and something like a the above video. Hopefully… The system itself is pretty simple, take a back mounted leaf blower attach some cut PVC with a plunger on it to a Y on the hose. Then push some pre-made snowballs in and watch the carnage. I … Continued
This isn’t your dad’s Periodic Table. This isn’t even your meme’s. This is something different. Makendo from Instructables has built this really neat cylindrical periodic table lamp. It’s pretty ace if you ask me. Unfortunately, it requires access to a 3-D printer, or some really insane skills with a Dremel/router/bandsaw. I like Hexagons, they are … Continued
Ok, not glow in the dark in the traditional sense, Greed LED strips attached to the skis and poles of a professional skier. Some drone footage of him carving up the mountain side make for a pretty cool video. Being the actual skier though, that looks super dangerous, even with the guiding lights along some … Continued
