    This is the lamp made by Imgurian downtwobane out of action figures and a cheap lamp bought at the thrift store. Total cost of the project was $15. I'm not sure anybody really needs instructions for how to superglue action figures to a lamp and then spray paint it all, but if... / Continue →

    This is a video of musician Rob Scallon rocking out on the garden shovel he modified into a one-string electric guitar. It sounds surprisingly amazing. I tried to make an electric guitar out of a hoe once but I stabbed myself during a concert solo and spilled my guts right th... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of the rice-straw dinosaurs (among other animals) built in Niigata Prefecture, Japan after this year's rice harvest. That t-rex is stunning. So is the triceratops. Is rice-straw soft or abrasive? Like, would it hurt if you rubbed up against it? I'm...aski... / Continue →

    This is iWheel, a human sized hamster wheel built from 36 empty iMac boxes. Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage. Just kidding, I am a hamster in a Habitrail. I'm gonna go take a nap in the big red ball! Now, am I supposed to follow the green tube or the blu... / Continue →

    This is the giant realistic cat head mask made out of wool by Housetu Sato and his students at the Japan School of Wool Art. Wool Art: apparently it has a school in Japan. I'm not sure why they made the eyes crossed though. Regardless, I want one to up my furry cred. Jk jk,... / Continue →

    These are the Game of Thrones house sigil pancakes made by pancake magician Nathan Shields. What's your favorite house sigil? Mine's Greyjoy, because it reminds me of the female reproductive system. I'm mature for my age. "You act like you're twelve." Well I'm only nine an... / Continue →

    This is The Bone Throne, a replica of the Iron Throne built by UK-based bondage company Bondara. The throne has 200 rubber dildos attached. Personally, I think there should be way more. There is like, way too much empty space on that throne. I suspect they got cheap and did... / Continue →

    The Bark Knight, get it? Because trees have bark on them. Growing up in Alabama we called that tree-skin. This is the carved wood Batman sculpture created by artist Thomas Earing, who, based on his name, I'm surprised doesn't dabble in jewelry instead. The Batman carving s... / Continue →

    This is the gingerbread Barad-dûr with light-up Eye of Sauron built by two Finnish engineering and computer science students. It took over 13.5-pounds of gingerbread to complete, but only one really high friend to eat half of when they had their backs turned. Keep going for a... / Continue →
