    Minecrafter Killerx20 has spent the last two years recreating Final Fantasy VII's Midgar in the world of Minecraft. This is that (links to forum where you can download the map). Creating a video game inside a video game, that's deep. Maybe not as deep as my soul, but my soul... / Continue →

    This is a short pictorial of father John Wray and his children building a fictional LEGO set of Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet. Pretty cute, right? It's cool, I'm man enough to be able to admit when things are cute. I like kittens, I like baby animals. I even like those littl... / Continue →

    This is the LEGO Super Mario Bros floor lamp built and being sold by Etsy shop PugsnLegos for $2,200. I want it. Except I want it to be Zelda themed. Ooh -- and I want it to play sounds from the games. Plus greet me when I come home. And if could give decent back and foot ... / Continue →

    This is 8-year old Dylan Prunty and the replica of the Children's Hospital Los Angeles he built out of LEGO bricks. Dylan builds things out of LEGO to help distract himself from the pain caused from a rare genetic disorder. PROTIP: Get those tissues handy. Fittingly named ... / Continue →

    This is the castle playhouse made by Minnesotan (that's somebody from Minnesota) Andrey Rudenko using 3-D printed layers of concrete. Andrey built his own concrete-extruding 3-D printer and printed the pieces to make this castle to test it out. Looks like it works. Eventually... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie Reader Daniel's son's room. Daniel and his fiance painted the whole thing with a Minecraft dungeon motif. It looks nice and cozy. My bedroom? Like a prison cell, with less amenities. You know when the last time I had the luxury of sleeping with a blanket... / Continue →

    Screen looks small. This is the Star Wars themed home theater built for an undisclosed couple (smart) by Seattle based custom theater designer DillonWorks. It looks legit. The perfect place to watch my favorite movie of the franchise, Star Wars Into Darkness. "GW? Please g... / Continue →

    This is the steampunk AT-AT walker made out of LEGO by LEGO-pro Markus1984. Now all Luke and the rest of the rebels need are some coal-powered dirigibles to fly around and tie all the legs together. Somebody really should shoot a steampunk remake of the original trilogy. Or ... / Continue →

    These are the edible chocolate LEGO blocks created by Akihiro Mizuuchi. They're made by pouring liquid chocolate into LEGO brick shaped molds and waiting for it to cool. Not too complicated. Afterwards, they're durable enough to build with, provided you don't hold them in yo... / Continue →

    This is the terrifying scarecrow (technically a scarebear) robot built by a Turkish farmer to keep bears from destroying his crops. The robot makes car alarm sounds (presumably because it's half car alarm) and has a 25,000-volt taser in one hand which it wildly swings around, ... / Continue →

    This is the $200 Collector's Edition LEGO Tumbler due out in September. The vehicle measures 15-inches by 9-inches and contains 1,869-pieces. Mostly black ones. I think I might build it. Then add fireworks to the back and accidentally set it ablaze trying to make it speed d... / Continue →

    This is the Darth Vader mask wood-burning stove built by Instructables member doddieszoomer. You can go to the Instructables website and follow his directions to build your own. Or you can follow the Google Maps directions to his house and steal this one. I'm kidding, please... / Continue →

    We've seen an AT-AT cat playhouse before, and now there's an AT-ST. I don't really have any more info, I just found the pics on The Bloggess's site in between posts about her weird taxidermy fetish. So it looks like it's up to us to make up our own backstory. I'm going to go... / Continue →

    This is the mech warrior playhouse built by Alabama dad and NASA scientist Jim Martin for his children. The playhouse is based off the Mad Cat, a mech from the analog (read: paper-and-pencil based) role-playing game MechWarrior. Could you imagine growing up with a mech warrio... / Continue →

    This is the 6-foot, 20,000-brick LEGO Bender sculpture created by LEGOmaniac Adrian Drake. His stomach door opens to reveal space for several bottles of booze inside. Would you drink something that came from the stomach of a robot? I think I would. I mean, just as long as i... / Continue →

    This is Kelsey Kronmiller and her boyfriend's custom Super Mario Bros level themed fish tank (previously: this one that she got the idea from) The castles are made out of LEGO bricks. If I were a fish I would love to live in there. I am not a fish though, I am a gecko. I hav... / Continue →

    This is the 114-foot LEGO tower built in Budapest, Hungary. It beats the previous record holder (that was built by a bunch of schoolchildren) by a little over a foot. What I don't understand is why did they only beat the record by a foot? If I set out to build the world's ta... / Continue →

    This is the almost 600 apartment Sky Habitat currently being built in Singapore. The 38-story towers will have three 50-meter bridges connecting the two. The top one of which will be a pool. It looks like the perfect place to get out of the pool and die. "I suspect the dece... / Continue →

    This is the Spider Man 'webslinger' built by Patrick Priebe of Laser Gadgets. Except instead of shooting actual webs it uses a little coilgun to shoots darts. It looks dangerous, and there is no doubt in my mind I'd find a way to shoot myself in the hand and/or face trying to... / Continue →

    This is the paper airplane folding and launching machine that a group of engineers built. I could probably watch it all day. Also: sleep and play video games. And if one of these f***ing lotto scratchers would finally hit the jackpot, maybe I could. But nooooooo, apparently... / Continue →
