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?
I’m sure you’ve seen versions of this before, but never matter, I’m posting the above video because I thought it was fun to watch, and it’s short, and you can spare the time. Trust me.
Remember this ? Holy crap, that was 9 years ago? Dang, time just seems to fly by. Sadly, that heart is sitting on my shelf, not the desk of the person it was originally for, but in honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s the steps to make your own.
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.

It’s pretty … Continued
I gotta say, while the practicality of this might not be as good as a flimsy one bought at Bed Bath and Beyond, you can rest assured that this hand forged spatula will never fail you. It’s solid as a rock and will scrape burgers off the grill with ease. Summer is still 6 months … 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
Instructables user grandpapaning has built this pretty neat tap-dancing robot. In actuality, it serves no purpose whatsoever. In practice though, it’s a great way to teach people about the different areas of science – Electricity, electronics, mechanical design, turning electrical signals into physical forces. In general, lots of stuff. It’s all pretty neat really. There’s … 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
