    This is the space shuttle replica that a 60-something Chinese farmer built on the roof of his home in the Guangdong province. Obviously, all the neighbors are jealous. And can you blame them? Who doesn't want a spaceship replica on top of their house? Nobody I want to be fr... / Continue →

    This is the Glow-in-the-Dark White Rockets Flannel Bedding available from Garnet Hill. You can get pillow cases, bed sets and comforter covers with the design. The prices seem reasonable. The only thing unreasonable is they don't make them in a king or I would have already o... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Pokeball engagement ring designed by jeweler Arts & Gems (of TARDIS engagement ring fame). I'm pretty sure if you're interested they'll make one for you. I'm also pretty sure the guy who lives upstairs died or went on vacation because he's a stomper and... / Continue →

    Note: Obviously if this picture were a sci-fi spaceship it would be smaller than a breadbox, click HERE for the full-res poster. Also, keep in mind one pixel = 10 meters, so any ship smaller than that probably didn't make the cut. This is a visual size comparison of sci-fi fr... / Continue →

    When the UKube-1 breadbox-sized satellite is launched into orbit this December, it won't just be carrying instruments to measure radiation and space weather. No, it's going to be rocking custom Celestial Charging Station graphics that invite space travelers low on power to sti... / Continue →

    Thanks to the marvel of pause buttons, this is a screenshot from around the 1-hour 17-minute mark of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' featuring everybody's favorite astromech droid being sucked out of the Enterprise (previously: R2-D2 spotted in the other most recent Star Trek film). ... / Continue →

    This is a shot from a Google Street View car (links to actual Google map) traveling the New Jersey Turnpike that happened to capture a space shuttle flyover in April 2012. Seeing it sent me on a Google Street View treasure hunt to see what other oddities I could spot in the sk... / Continue →

    Google has added the TARDIS' interior control room to Google Maps, which you can access by clicking the double arrow pointed at the police box located outside the Earl's Court London Underground subway station HERE. My boss just caught me clicking around the map and asked what... / Continue →

    This is the USS Enterprise and Romulan Bird of Prey cat tree built by Instructables user hatstand4510 for her cat, Saavik. I flipped through the instructions, and, honestly, I feel like it's something even you could build. Granted yours will collapse the first time your cat e... / Continue →

    This is 'Riding the Booster', a video taken from cameras attached to a Space Shuttle's solid rocket boosters as it blasts off into the atmosphere. Plus there's real audio. Sounds like an inferno. I recommend watching lift-off and at least part of the first 90-seconds, then s... / Continue →

    This is the half-scale replica of Vader's TIE Fighter built by a group of Germans for Star Wars Celebration Europe. It took over 1,000 man hours and $20,000 to build. And can you think of any better use for 1,000 man hours and $20,000? Because I can't. You think with 2,000 ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber TheMiro59 constructing and test-flying his custom built radio controlled USS Enterprise. It has light effects and everything. Unfortunately, it's not the best flyer, but hey -- neither am I. PILOT: Attention all passengers, this is your captain sp... / Continue →

    Remember that picture of the TARDIS refrigerator with no other information? Well it turns out it was made by artist/engineers B.E.Johnson & Joy Alyssa Day and they'll make one to fit your fridge for the low, low price of $185. Plus it doesn't come with the Christmas lights in... / Continue →

    Tom Bingham makes custom electric guitars out of the Star Wars spaceship toys he buys at car boot (trunk) sales (aka stolen goods sales). That's cool, but not near as ICE COLD as the ice cream bar I'm eating right now. It's strawberry -- you jealous? No? What if I told you ... / Continue →

    This is a Star Wars themed nursery created by Carissa XY and omooney for their son (and future Jedi) James. It kind of made me wish I had a themed bedroom, which I guess I kind of do provided messy is a theme. My dirty clothes pile is so big I mistakenly slept in it a couple... / Continue →

    This is the half-inch papercraft Millennium Falcon model made by working under a magnifying glass professional David Canavese. David says she ship is entirely paper (and glue) and took eight hours to complete. There's a bonus Star Wars Blockade Runner after the jump that's ev... / Continue →

    These are USS Enterprise and X-Wing fighter sculptures made out of old computer parts by by Etsy seller Shankalonian. You know, there's a term for making stuff like this out of older, more useless stuff, but I forget what it is. "It's called upcycling." It's on the tip of my... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of Star Wars themed origami. Each piece was folded from a single sheet of paper by Martin Hunt. Martin eventually wants to get the licensing rights from Disney to have his original designs published in book form so everyone can share the joy of folding paper ... / Continue →

    This is a little alphabet guide of sci-fi franchise spaceships compiled by Scott Markley. They're not ALL sci-fi though, a couple of them are actual real-life ships. Can you spot them? SPOILER: The Normandy and The Liberator. "You have no clue do you?" Zero -- give me a hi... / Continue →
