Wooden Sink

0

Reddit user CTpizza23 made a farm house style sink out of walnut.  It looks gorgeous, but as many of the commenters on the reddit thread mentioned, it will not last.It’s a shame that we can’t make something waterproof and still transparent, I would love to have something like this in my house one day.  Though … Continued

Real time data, weather data, it’s all interesting isn’t it? On Nullschool.net you can explore real time wind data and watch weather patterns form.  It’s pretty neat if I do say so myself.  Check it out if you can, I am. {nullschool|reddit}

PARKS: The Board game

0

I might be alittle behind on this (the Kickstarter has ended, but was funded to over 2000%), but this looks like a pretty ace game. There have been a few more additions to the National Parks since this was conceived and produced, but that’s the nature of the world, things are constantly changing.  I’m bummed … Continued

Yosemite is Open 360

0

California is on fire. (What else is new).  However, this summer fires closed Yosemite Valley for an extended period of time.  The valley wasn’t at risk of the fire, rather the wind was pushing the smoke into the valley and causing very bad air quality.  Recently the park re-opened, reddit user cesar1894 shared this video … Continued

RollerCoaster Tycoon Calculator

It might be a secret, though it’s not anymore, I love RollerCoaster Tycoon. It’s my favorite computer game. I’ve spent countless hours playing the game, beating the scenarios, making my own crazy parks. I’ve hit the object limit in a park before and it sucks when you have a really ace park. OpenRCT2 aims to … Continued

LEGO Bridge Girder Builder

It will never cease to amaze me with the ingenuity of people when it comes to LEGO contraptions. I’ve never seen one of these full size bridge girder movers, but watching this LEGO version makes me amazed at how humans have been able to make machines to make life easier. Especially since this machine is … Continued

Why aren’t you watching the MarbleLympics?

0

Event 9 just went live and if anything, these games have proven to be a shocker!  As much of a fan of real life curling I am, I couldn’t watch the Marblelympics version.  It was just too boring.  I’m sorry. However, the other 8 events are quite engaging, you should skip around the playlist, watch … Continued

Cast Iron Fish

0

Did you know that in the Victorian era, elaborate cast iron fish tanks were all the rage among the nobility?  I didn’t.  I assumed fish tanks, because of the glass, plastic, electricity, and silicone necessary were a relatively recent commodity.  I would be wrong.  Tropical Fish Magazine has a detailed write up on what went … Continued
