    This is a video of the impressive TIE Interceptor quadrocopter built by Youtuber Olivier C, who also made that Millennium Falcon quadrocopter. Clearly this guy has a thing for Star Wars and quadrocopters. So, if you were ever looking for somebody to make you a custom Star War... / Continue →

    This is the Up inspired doghouse created by Superfan Builds (previously: this Hobbit Hole cat litter box and Batman Tumbler stroller) for Russel cosplayer Steve Minty and his rescue dog Dug (named after the dog in the movie). You know, Russel and Dug were cool and all, but I r... / Continue →

    This is the giant Playstation controller coffee table made and sold by Etsy shop WoodCurve. It weighs about 100 pounds and costs $3,000. That's $30/pound. For reference, I just bought some sea scallops for right around $18/pound, and they were f***ing delicious. Sadly, bein... / Continue →

    After receiving enough votes on the LEGO Ideas website, and being reviewed by LEGO (not to mention securing the licensing rights), the company has announced they will be producing Doctor Who and WALL-E playsets later this year. Sadly, they will both appear clearly written near... / Continue →

    This is the 2,996-piece S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier playset due out this March for $350. It will come with five minifigs (Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, and Maria Hill) and is expected to be between first and third place on my birthday wishlist this year dependi... / Continue →

    Come on -- you can kick harder than that! What is this, an 8-and-under kickball league? This is a video from the apocalypse-hurrying jerks at Carnegie Mellon's Biorobotics Lab of a hexapod spider bot with modified robot snakes for legs. You know, because you can never pack ... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Super-Fan Builds webseries (previously: a Hobbit-hole litter box and Bioshock aquarium) documenting the construction of a custom Batmobile stroller for young Collin and his father Josh. It turns out pretty amazing. Sure it'll take up the whole sidewal... / Continue →

    This is a video detailing the build of a hobbit-hole litter box and Barad-dûr/Eye of Sauron cat-scratching tower for crazed Tolkien fan Misha and his cats Frodo and Sam (yes, seriously -- he even puts Frodo in a bag and calls him Frodo Baggins). Man, my cats would DESTROY that... / Continue →

    This is the note that was included with some LEGO doll house sets in the 70's, reminding parents that it's okay for girls to want to play with rocketships and boys to build dollhouses. It's weird to think some parents actually needed to be reminded of that. I had a Cabbage Pa... / Continue →

    This is a short video animation by Youtuber Flashcode imagining if Minecraft were rendered more lifelike. The results are, well, more lifelike. You know, I actually invented Minecraft more than a decade ago but instead of building with cubes it was all short, fat penises. It... / Continue →

    This is the 'Upside Down Truck' built by mechanic Rick Sullivan. The truck, which took Rick six months and $6,000 to build, is actually a 1991 Ford Ranger with a 1995 Ford F-150 body placed on top, upside-down. Impressive work. I just wish the video didn't feature so many ot... / Continue →

    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 →
