    Come hither. This is a paper t-rex optical illusion that appears to follow you with its head as you walk around it. Cool, but I still want one of those creepy paintings that follows you with its eyes as you move around the room. "Don't masturbate paintings" I call them. Kee... / Continue →

    I apologize for the poor quality pictures but I didn't make them so it's really not my fault I'm just taking the blame because I have BROAD SHOULDERS and could carry the whole world on them provided it was the size and weight of a beach ball. This is a small series of five dif... / Continue →

    This is the USS Enterprise and Romulan Bird of Prey cat tree built by Instructables user hatstand4510 for her cat, Saavik. I flipped through the instructions, and, honestly, I feel like it's something even you could build. Granted yours will collapse the first time your cat e... / Continue →

    This is a rendering of the Maker Plane, an open source airplane designed for anybody to build on their own for around $15,000. It's the perfect weekend project for the aspiring drug trafficker like myself. SHIT, BOGEY AT SIX O'CLOCK! DUMP THE BONER PILLS, I REPEAT, DUMP THE... / Continue →

    Some bro in Germany sealed his BMW to make the interior waterproof then filled it up with what appears to be swamp water and drove his buddies around in the thing until he got pulled over for driving a pool. Did I mention they'd been drinking? I'm as shocked as you are. Per ... / Continue →

    This is the $12 laser-cut Millennium Falcon model sold by Strapya World. It comes as two sheets of flat metal, but with enough time and patience, you can turn it into a little little Millennium Falcon. With less time and patience you can turn it into accidentally stabbing you... / Continue →

    Wait -- you've got a Portal gun and it's just sitting on the shelf collecting dust? Not cool bro. Just in time for the release of Iron Man 3 *shrug*, this is a video of Caleb from Hackaday showing off the 80,000-volt Thor hammer he built out of a tesla coil and foam. It can ... / Continue →

    This is the 'Autobot E' USS Enterprise Transformer hacked together from existing toy parts by reader and DeviantARTist Unicron9 (who knows how to write a hell of an email by the way). It looks like the Enterprise, but can also transform into "a majestic alien look with a mix o... / Continue →

    Don't do it, bro. Seen here being modeled by the saddest lovedoll I've spied all week (and that's saying a lot because I made the mistake of opening my roommate's closet), this is the 'R2-DD2' bra created by Instructables user seamster. It has light up effects and even beep-b... / Continue →

    Instructables user dragonator (damn yeah you are!) went and made himself a 3-D printed GlaDOS robotic arm ceiling lamp and decided to share his knowledge with us so we can ALL make our own GlaDOS robotic arm ceiling lamps. That was very selfless of him. I just finished buildi... / Continue →

    Whoa -- easy on the catnip, bro. This is the Super Mario piranha plant cat tree made by Instructables user Geckoo_Designs. It's not like, a super PRO quality Super Mario piranha cat tree, but it's decent. Definitely better than you or I could do. Now I know you hate it when... / Continue →

    They say the way to a woman's heart is through her soles. No, no they don't. These are a pair of homemade R2-D2 high heels from Instructables user mikasaurus (who previously brought us those homemade dinosaur heels). I flipped through the instructions on how to make them, an... / Continue →

    You can't hitchhike to the North Pole, silly! Because who doesn't want to be the envy of this year's ugly Christmas sweater party, here's a do-it-yourself sweater from Mark Rober featuring an iPad playing a crackling fire animation (links to iTunes page to download the animati... / Continue →

    This is a wooden pirate chest built around an Igloo beer cooler by redditor ShutUpLori (seriously Lori -- I can barely hear myself think) for his boss. What kind of boss asks you to mod a cooler into a pirate chest is beyond me, but they sound like a pretty good one. My old b... / Continue →

    If it makes you feel any better, I really hate myself for that title. NO I DON'T EITHER THAT TITLE IS THE TITS. These are some "sharks eating your feet" socks created by Lisa Grossman (aka the Tsarina of Tsocks). If you're keeping count, that makes TWO sock posts in one day.... / Continue →

    Hey -- you want a scarf that has all the words from the One Ring on it? Well consider this your lucky day (at least until you see I sideswiped your car in the parking lot and didn't leave a note) because knitter Diana Stafford has got you covered with this DIY pattern. The pa... / Continue →

    Police in Germany pulled over a 35-year old man doing 130 kph (80 mph) in a 100 kph (~62 mph) zone, and discovered he'd built an entire mobile office in the passenger seat of his vehicle. This is that mobile office. I know, I used 'deluxe' in the title pretty liberally. Bu... / Continue →

    Because it's the holiday season and it's important to stay both drunk AND nourished, here are some ground beef shot glasses from ManBQue (links to recipe). They're basically meatballs cooked around stainless steel shot glasses. They look perfect for little Bloody Mary shots. ... / Continue →
