    This is a video of the scout trooper on speeder bike quadrocopter made and flown by copter hobbyist and Star Wars fan Adam Woodworth. It is one of the most impressive quadrocopter mods I've seen, which is saying a lot because I've seen them all, including a full scale naked la... / Continue →

    This is a video of big wave surf legend Laird Hamilton riding some waves on a surfboard with a hydrofoil attached, so it rises up out of the water when it gets up to speed. Personally, you'd never catch me in the ocean with ANYTHING strapped to my feet. That's like, a death s... / Continue →

    This is a music video made for Queen's iconic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' using nothing but appropriately timed cutscenes from Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. It was made by reader Ben who had this fascinating tidbit to share: "I spent 18 hours playing the game, and 30 hours editing,... / Continue →

    This is the insanely detailed maze that Twitter user Kya7y's father spent nearly 7 years drawing some 30 years ago. one hell of a hobby. For comparison, I used to doodle penises in the margin of my notebooks whenever I was bored in school. That and try to imagine m... / Continue →

    Because this is the internet, here's a short video of Gandalf riding a unicycle playing 'Concerning Hobbits' from The Fellowship of the Ring on bagpipes. It's the same dude from Portland that did the Star Wars theme dressed as Darth Vader. Hey, everyone needs a hobby. My fav... / Continue →

    This is a 7,000 domino maze that, when toppled, recreates Van Gogh's iconic 'The Starry Night'. It was set up (and knocked down) by Youtuber Spazzybat Flippycat of domino wall destruction fame. Which, as far as fame goes, is like 4X more famous than I'll ever be. "Dammit GW,... / Continue →

    Man, if there's one thing I love it's destruction. Sometimes I build a whole bunch of those crappy little birdhouse kits just so I can smash them to pieces with a hammer. It's a sickness -- one I have zero interest in curing. This is a time-lapse video of Youtuber Flippycat ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy carving the end of a toothpick into a little Game Boy. Then he paints it with like, A hair. Not a pube though because all those loopty-loops would make painting impossible. Now granted the toothpick is a little larger and fancier than the ones you'd ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a modern slot car race, and let me tell you -- it probably should've been shot with a high-speed camera. Me? I probably should've been shot with a rifle. You can see two cars going by in the bottom portion of the screencap I took, and they just look like l... / Continue →

    This is a video of amateur coin-stacker Tai Star's fifth attempt to balance 3,000 coins on a single dime. And he succeeds, managing to stack a total of 3,118 onto the pile before calling it quits. Not bad, Mai Tai, but I once stacked a dozen books on a passed out roommate an... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res desktop background version HERE. Remember Mike Doyle's 60,000-piece LEGO Victorian house that'd been smashed by a tree? Well he's back with another build, this time a "110,000 - 130,000-piece Victorian perched atop a mud heap. Which, WHO BUILDS A HOUSE ON A M... / Continue →

    This is a Halloween light show synchronized to the Nightmare Before Christmas hit 'This is Halloween'. It was made by the same guy that did last year's 'Thriller' light show, because this dude simply CANNOT WAIT until Christmas to break out the blinky lights and staple those f... / Continue →

    Uh, is that Bumblebee hiding in the corner? I put functional in quotations because the boot-jets don't work, it won't stop a single bullet (or rock), and the arc reactor is just a bunch of LEDs. Oh, and the briefcase looks like a homemade bomb. Besides that though, totally l... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of steampunk insects made out of old ammunition and pocket-watch parts by Tom Hardwidge. As you can see, they're pretty good looking. Unless you hate steampunk stuff, in which case they're probably pretty bad looking. Whatever side of the fence you yell ove... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie Reader Greg's homemade Legend of Zelda mini-arcade. It has a Nintendo stuffed in the back. Originally Greg just sent me a video of the machine, which looks suspiciously like it was filmed in the middle of a seizure, so I convinced him to send me some pictur... / Continue →

    Seen here refusing to pull dude's finger, this is a model of Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from those Harry Potter books made by Patrick Acton (who also did this matchstick Minas Tirith). "Damn GW, two Potter posts in one day? You're making my wand flutter!" I ... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for a higher-res shot that does the house more justice. This is a sickly amazing LEGO build by Mike Doyle of an abandoned Victorian house that's been crushed by a tree. And speaking of getting crushed by trees: people who have sex with Ents. TIIIIIIIIIIIII... / Continue →

    Haha, who just shaved their dog's genitals and gave him a bath in-between posts? This guy! Taking a clue from the guy who built a fully functional calculator in Little Big Planet, Youtube user theinternetftw is in the process of building an entire 16-bit computer in Minecraft... / Continue →

    Remember Patrick Acton? Of course not, it's a forgettable name. But you may remember the full-scale nowhere near full-scale version of Minas Tirith he was building entirely out of matchsticks. Good lookin', Patrick. Now make one out of hair. Acton's version of Minas Tirith... / Continue →
