    Looks like a painting, right? Well it's not, it's a 3-D rendering of Benczúr Gyula's 1885 painting Budavár visszavétele created by 3-D artist Farkas Zsolt with over 8.5-million polygons. That is a lot of polygons. Polly want a cracker? Polly want a -- wait, where'd she go? ... / Continue →

    OMG, SO MANY BUTTONS TO PUSH! This is a worthwhile video (at least skip around) of Jelani Eddington performing the Star Wars main theme on one of the largest pipe organs in the world, a Wurlitzer theater organ with some 8,000-pipes. For reference, I only have one pipe. "Your... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version right around HERE. This is the tumblr-er TheGreatKeaton's Majora's Mask inspired back tattoo. I really like it. The tattoo was designed by Krystian Marciniak and inked by Anson Eastin at the Forever Tattoo Parlour in Cape Coral, Florida. I love all the ... / Continue →

    I know a wire bending machine doesn't sound that exciting, but you are wrong. This shit is HYPNOTIC. Like, on the count of three you will give me a kiss. One...two...three. Okay, where was my kiss? Screw it, I'm pulling out the big guns. *dangling pocket watch* When I s... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of the Caterpillar P5000 Power Loader costume from the original Aliens movie that father Carsten Riewe built for him and his daughter (previously: this one). It took him 100 hours to complete. That's a lot of time hanging out in the garage. Me? I love ... / Continue →

    This is the functional computer keyboard constructed by Jason Allemann out of nothing but LEGO bricks and the dome-switch circuit board from a donor keyboard. Although whether the keyboard was a WILLING donor remains to be decided by a criminal court. Keep going for a video a... / Continue →

    This is a video of acrobat Kai Hou pulling off a bunch of stunts I didn't know were humanly possible. And to think I can't even pull off a back-flip off the diving board. I'm a f***ing beast at pencils though. Keep going for the worthwhile video and wish you'd run away to jo... / Continue →

    This is the Joker themed leather suit of armor and mask made by Prince Armory (of Batman and Aquaman armor fame). It looks amazing. I think Facebook commenter Christopher R. really hit the nail on the head when he said, "I would like to be buried in this, even if it meant sti... / Continue →

    This is the Joker themed LEGO funhouse built by LEGOmaniac Paul Hetherington. The build is impressive to begin with, but even more impressive when you see the video and realize PARTS OF IT ARE ANIMATED. Not like a cartoon though, I mean they move. Me? I rarely move. *lifti... / Continue →

    This is the 500,000+ piece LEGO car that was built by 20-year-old Romanian Raul Oaida. Obviously it's not 100% LEGO (chassis, axles, wheels), but it is fueled by compressed air powering 256 LEGO pistons and can allegedly reach speeds up to 20MPH. For reference, that's faster ... / Continue →

    This is the 5-foot x 10-foot, 200,000 piece Middle Earth LEGO Rivendell built by Alice Finch (of 400,000-piece LEGO Hogwarts fame) and David Frank. I wish I could just shrink myself down to that size and live there. Of course, I said the same thing about my little sister's Ba... / Continue →

    This is a month long time-lapse of artist Kyle Lambert fingerpainting an ultra-realistic Morgan Freeman using the iPad app Procreate. Me? I've procreated before. Jk jk, amateurcreated. It was awkward and I didn't get paid. Also, I bet this painting actually IS a photograph... / Continue →

    This is a set of 3-D printed thorn dice designed by Shapeways user ceramicwombat. You can get plastic versions for as low as $27, but that makes you a cheap-ass. Just save up the $82 and get a decent metal set or don't get any at all. Just think about how badass your next Du... / Continue →

    This is a video of Aaron 'Wheelz' Fotheringham demonstrating his extreme wheelchairing skills. He does all kinds of stuff: wheelies, backflips, handplants, rail-grinds, you name it. "Shot out of a cannon?" I don't think that's a wheelchair trick. Still, you point me to a ca... / Continue →

    These are a couple videos of Leonardo Da Vinci's (previously only conceptual) Viola Organista being played in real life. The instrument was built by Polish concert pianist Slawomir Zubrzycki from a drawing Da Vinci made almost 500 years ago. 500 years ago -- can you even imag... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 1:15 scale R/C Airbus A380 taking to the skies at a recent R/C plane show. You know, that seems like it would be a fun thing to attend on a weekend. You know what I attend on weekends? Community service. And not the cool kind like I created a community ... / Continue →

    This is a short commercial for Volvo (previously: a hamster driving a Volvo) featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme performing his famous splits between two reversing Volvo big-rigs. It was supposed to "demonstrate the precision and directional stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering," b... / Continue →

    This is a compilation reel made by domino pros Hevesh5 and Millionendollarbo showing off a bunch of domino maze tricks you don't normally see in domino maze videos. Unless you're a maker of complicated domino mazes yourself, in which case you've probably seen them all and coul... / Continue →

    This is the set of dragon bone armor made by Redditor Starkfelt17. Me? I haven't felt 17 since I was 17. Although I did feel 19 a couple weekends ago when a friend produced a tray of Jello shots from the fridge. Obviously, the costume isn't real dragon bone because real dra... / Continue →

    These are a series of 3-D resin paintings by DeviantARTist Kenglye. He creates the 3-D effect by pouring a thin layer of resin, painting that layer, pouring another thin layer, painting that one, and repeating until he's built up a real looking fish or octopus or turtle. Most... / Continue →
