    This is the Star Wars birthday cake (Happy Birthday Alexander!) with illuminated lightsabers made by Flickr user Lorenzo Wood. It uses two Neopixels LED strips to make the lightsabers glow. They are not edible. I'm kidding, everything is edible. Those lightsabers will burn ... / Continue →

    Why are you throwing money away? This is the old Macintosh Plus that Redditor HaHaBird modded into a trashcan. He cleverly replaced the computer's glass screen with a hinged acrylic panel, presumably to keep smells contained. My trashcan smells awful. I'm not sure what's in... / Continue →

    This is the $32 Melting Toht Candle available from Firebox. As it burns, it looks more and more like brutal Gestapo agent Arnold Ernst Toht as his face melts off at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the Nazis open the Ark of the Covenant and suffer the wrath of God. T... / Continue →

    This is the Fatboy Picnic Lounge, a 82″x 107″ picnic blanket that looks like an oriental rug. Unfortunately, It does not fly. It also doesn't cost less than $249, making it a little bit out of my picnic blanket budget at the moment. Let's just sit on the bare grass. "But wh... / Continue →

    This is the Volkswagen Beetle toy that Redditor Muppaphone spotted in a taxidermied beetle exhibit at the Cleveland Museum Of Natural History. Those museum curators -- such a wild bunch! Seriously, they are though. Because one time I got a behind-the-scenes tour of a museum ... / Continue →

    This is the Neopixel Giant Thermometer Scarf created by Instructables user caitlinsdad. It uses a digital thermometer, Arduino controller and strip of LEDs to display the current temperature. It also has a couple different cool light-up effects. Of course, I don't need a the... / Continue →

    This is a Smart Car with a photographic wrap to make it look like the driver is riding a motorcycle. I think it's real, but it could be a Photoshop job. At first I thought the front fork of the motorcycle extended past the fender of the car, but I think the bottom of the fend... / Continue →

    This is Wave City, an Inception inspired coffee table built by furniture designer Stelios Mousarris. It was built using wood, steel (to support the wave form), and 3-D printing technology and available in a limited edition for €5,000 (~$5,425), which actually seems kind of rea... / Continue →

    Because OMG STAR WARS, this is a series of Star Wars shadow art created by pop artist Red Hong Yi. It all looks like a bunch of clutter on sticks until the light hits it from just the right angle. Then MAGIC HAPPENS. Magic also happens when I put on my robe and wizard hat. ... / Continue →

    This is the Lap Skate Guitar made by artist/musician HectorTepuy. It's a steel guitar made out of a skateboard deck. It does not do kickflips. I tried to teach myself how to play the acoustic guitar I couple years ago but I gave up because I would always end up so out of bre... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jarrad Provost's son riding around in his modified Power Wheels car. And by modified I mean Jarrad attached a leaf blower to the side so his son can clean up leaves while he ridesr around. Pretty clever. Getting work done AND having fun. It's a shame that... / Continue →

    This is a shot from the Lowcost Cosplay guy (previously: all these costumes) of himself as Street Fighter's Ryu performing a hadouken. That is one of the most clever uses of a blue toilet bowl tablet that I've ever seen, second only to convincing my little sister they're candy... / Continue →

    These are Luma Dice, solid block aluminum dice with light-up LED number spots. The dice are powered by a replaceable battery, and have a motion sensor that activates the lights when you pick them up to roll them. They've been balanced to the best of the maker's ability, but a... / Continue →

    This is the math worksheet that Redditor irishchck14's 6-year old son brought home after it was graded by his teacher. As you can see, not only is this kid a math genius (I thought for sure Amy had more money), but he is an ARTIST. A real outside-the-box thinker. We need mor... / Continue →

    This is short video from the Steinhart Aquarium at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco detailing how biologists keep captive octopuses stimulated so they don't get depressed. Apparently they give them puzzles and toys and BODY MASSAGES. I wish I got body massa... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like a male Tina Belcher, Redditor THE_UPDATE_UPDATER displays his Halloween costume. He's an avocado. His belly is the seed. Remember when you were a kid and you were scared that if you ate a fruit seed then that kind of plant would grow inside your stomac... / Continue →

    This is a small photographic series of makeup artist Shonagh Scott after making herself up to look like dead Disney princesses. Obviously, this is Princess Buttercup Cinderella here, but there's Snow White, Elsa, Belle and Ariel after the jump. So -- how do you think Cinderel... / Continue →

    This is a video of Geekologie reader Ryan's Marty McFly and hoverboard costume for Halloween. Pretty clever, right? I wish I would have thought of that. I didn't though, so now Ryan is getting all the credit that SHOULD HAVE BEEN mine. What a jerk. Just kidding Ryan, nice ... / Continue →

    These a handful of the skateboards eBay seller andyshrinkage has turned into wall lamps by replacing the trucks and wheels with light fixtures. They cost $140 and up depending on the rarity of the board used, although you could probably make one yourself if you have some basic... / Continue →
