Fun with Magnets!

0

Powerful permanent magnets are fun to play around with and experiment and learn from.  Aptly named Instructables user Magnetic Games has a short 2 step instructable that  shows how to make a few neat things. Actually, his YouTube channel is full of interesting experiments and toys you could make with ease with magnets.  I think the gears … Continued

Insane Domino Rally

0

I remember when I was little I would constantly make a mess of my basement setting up Domino Rally runs.  They always ended up going off prematurely and ruining hours of setup time, but it was still fun.  YouTube user FlippyCat seems to have collected 30 or 40 of every individual Domino Rally set ever … Continued

LEGO Marble Maze

0

Honestly, I’m surprised that it took a LEGO Ideas to build this model.  It’s such an iconic toy, and fits perfectly in the LEGO ecosystem.  The best part is that since it’s made of LEGO bricks, you can super easily make your own maze board.  It currently sits in the Approved stage, meaning it’s one step … Continued

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone.  I hope you have a great time, and I hope those of you with children set up something like this one day in your life.  There’s alot of thought that went into the track, using LEGO as the pillars is a great idea to keep track (pun intended), of the level needed. … Continued

Nanoblock Nikon

0

Nanoblock is sorta like LEGO, except smaller.  And, it’s not LEGO, and it’s Japanese.  It’s smaller pieces, hence the name, that allow more detailed models to be made.  It looks cool, but I don’t think they will have any real dangerous impact on LEGO.  However, this small model is really nano, because it’s made up … Continued

R/C Nerf Gun

0

I didn’t know this, but it kind of makes sense, there are 5 channels on the average R/C car chip, and only 4 of them are in use.  So with alittle tinkering, you can add fully automatic Nerf gun to the body of car and hook it up to the trigger.  This will let you … Continued

Halo 5

It’s Go Day.  The long awaited Halo 5 is upon us.  Granted, it doesn’t seem like it’s got the global power of Halo 2, or Halo 3, but it’s still pretty impressive.  I’ll let you know how I enjoy it one day maybe.  But for now, take a look at this ace diorama of a … Continued

LEGO Trains

0

Youtube user bananenbuurman, has an impressive collection of LEGO trains.  I’m particularily fond of the First Person view of this track that goes through an underwater tunnel.  It’s pretty cool because of the scale, everything seems faster then it is, (it could be speed up, but it doesn’t need to be).  I watched the whole thing, … Continued

Pie Face Game

0

The above is aptly called “Pie Face Game” and it’s a form Russian Roulette, but with less drastic results.  The video is hilarious, you need to watch it if just to hear the people laughing in it. {Imgur}

Basement Railroad

0

The Model kind that is.  There’s just something about model railroads.  You don’t necessarily need to be a nerd to really like them, but it helps.  Kids love them, and they really are just a testimate to dedication.  Being able to play with the model trains, that’s a secondary spot of fun. Now, this isn’t … Continued
