    This is the 1977 Kenner Star Wars Millennium Falcon toy that was stuffed with the guts of a Technics SL-1200 turntable by Marco Garza. It makes the perfect record player for listening to John Williams' original Star Wars score. Or Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon. It's a r... / Continue →

    Wow, two gingerbread posts in a row, it must be the holidays or something! (Is it the holidays?) This is the gingerbread USS Enterprise built and on display at the Blackmarket Bakery in Costa Mesa, California. They did a good job. But you know what my least favorite thing ab... / Continue →

    This is the 59" X 79" Millennium Falcon Area Rug (available on Amazon for $80, ThinkGeek for $100, and probably other places for I don't know how much). It's a rug that looks like the Millennium Falcon. Now I want you to close your eyes and imagine this thing in front of a ro... / Continue →

    This is a series of three alternate fan-made posters for Star War Episode VII designed by DeviantARTist AndrewSS7. Will the actual movie posters look this good? I doubt it. Of course, I've been wrong before. Like when I camped out to see all three prequels. Keep going for ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Galactic Empire forces taking over the Frankfurt Airport in Germany. No word if Germany forged an alliance with the Empire or if the airport was taken by force. I suspect the worse. "Which is?" Germany has always been a secret part of the Galactic Empire.... / Continue →

    Pixeltrek is an in-browser maze game in which you play as Data trying to navigate all the decks of USS Enterprise. This screenshot is from me trying to spy on some blue alien in the shitter off the main bridge. It's a great time-waster, and since it's a holiday weekend comin... / Continue →

    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 →

    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 →
