  • The largest skateboard in the world gets taken for a spin…

    I'm sure over the course of however many years you've been alive, you've seen plenty of "World's largest" claims and objects. I'm sure that at one point, you've even seen the so called largest skateboard. Regardless if you actually have seen the world's largest skateboard, I'm here to tell you that there is a new sheriff in town. The skateboard you see above was crafted by the team at California Skateparks, and is epic in proportions. With a skateboard that resembles a skeleton car, it's n...
  • And the invasion continues: The LEGO Exoskeleton.

    If you were cool, you would make an exoskeleton out of LEGOs that you could put on and wear around like a total nerd. Or, you could take that LEGO exoskeleton and go above and beyond by adding in actual "intelligent" motors that would mimic your hands every movement. That's what David Hyman did anyway. His LEGO Exoskeleton hand is built out of 100% LEGOs yet powered by an external hand controller that will follow every motion his real hand makes. If that's not bleepin' cool I don't know wh...
  • Shoot ‘em up: The LEGO Rifle (that actually works!)
    by Mike

    I'm not a big gun fanatic, but can appreciate a finely crafted weapon of smooth steel and other exotic metals. However, I can really appreciate a sniper rifle constructed of LEGOs that actually works, fed by (2) 8-brick magazines in bolt-action style. That is a feat of pure awesomeness! Get another fix of pixels after the jump... (more...)...
  • How to make (and own) your very own BatPod
    by Mike
    Posted June 3rd, 2010 at 7:05 am
    As far as I'm concerned, Dark Knight is one of the best Batman movies. Maybe not completely based on the overall theme and acting, but more-so on the rides, specifically the BatPod. Well, now you can actually own your very own. The BatPod project above was created by several Batman enthusiasts to mimic as closely as possible, the real BatPod. Hitting (I'm assuming 60) in 5.2 seconds is a breeze in this dark beast. Though plan your gas stops accordingly as the gas tank is tiny -- and I...
  • Can’t find the right computer case? Turn that empty desk draw/cabinet into something suitable. [Mod]
    by Mike

    There have been plenty of computer case mods that mimic desks or are built straight into desks entirely. This particular computer case/computer desk mod by forum member "MoonPig" just so happens to be one of the neater and cleaner mods that have drifted by my eyes. Inside the inconspicuous looking desk, the usual assortment of computer parts and wiring is visible. The real part that gets me however is the view from above -- a nice, big skylight to look down onto all the PC geeke...
  • Racing Sim geeks, this is what you need…[Mod]
    by Mike
    Posted April 2nd, 2010 at 10:03 am
    Back in the day of video game benchmarks and goals being measured in "bits", a true racing sim involved at most a monstrous TV, racing sim of choice, and a comfy chair. Thankfully we've made some decent progress since those days. Today's racing sim geek generally has multiple monitors, racing "seat" that is actually a cage more or less, replicating the interior of a real car, and of course steering wheel and pedals. But even then, those are all fake parts made to mimic a real car. What if yo...
  • Always stay connected with the Light up Email T-Shirt.
    by Mike
    Posted April 1st, 2010 at 6:53 am
    How much do you really need to be glued to your inbox, your friends, and the outside world? Between cellphones, email, snail mail, and landlines, I'd say we're already pretty well notified, wouldn't you? But there's always room for consolidation and improvement. Meet the email t-shirt. This isn't your normal socially aware article of clothing mind you. This handy creation from "Chris" and his female partner in crime is one of the coolest mods I've seen yet. Using a few simple items such as...
  • Bored? Why not make a flashlight…out of half the world’s LED supply. [500-LED flashlight mod]
    by Mike
    Posted March 29th, 2010 at 7:11 am
    I understand. Weekends can be fun but long. Usually I don't mind because, well, I'm not at work. But even then, sometimes you just want the weekend to pick up the pace and be entertaining. Is that too much to ask? If entertainment isn't easily coming your way, take charge and grab the weekend by the horns -- so to speak. The 500-LED mod above is easily the coolest illumination project I can think of in recent memory. Besides being massive (in coolness and physical size), this gargan...
  • Put that noodle of yours to good use and give it a sweet accessory: The LED Mohawk Helmet
    by Mike
    Posted March 24th, 2010 at 3:32 am
    As we cross into this week's hump day, we're left looking at what we've accomplished so far, and where we're yet to go. One thing that I always look ahead towards is what I plan on doing over the weekend. For me, the weekend is the best time of the week. I'm sure I'm not alone. While I've got my weekend booked, some may be looking for something to fill theirs with. For those who like little projects, the LED Mohawk Helmet created by "Garrett", is something that just makes sense. I mean, ne...
  • “Retro” gaming on the go with the Portable, Flip Top GameCube
    by Mike
    Posted March 22nd, 2010 at 7:59 am
    When I think of "retro" gaming consoles, the GameCube isn't necessarily one that first comes to mind. Yet if you really think about it in technology years, the GameCube is pretty old. Just because it's old doesn't mean we can't still have some fun with it though. One of the most popular mods for gamers and tinkers alike is the "portable console mod". Taking a console such as a PS2, Dreamcast, or in this case, a GameCube, and transforming it into something small and lightweight means added en...
  • Ok, now I’ve seen it — The best YouTube/music/geek parody ever: “The New Dork”
    by Mike
    Posted March 8th, 2010 at 7:04 pm
    We've highlighted a parody music video or two over the last few months. The last two that come to mind were I'm on a Mac and I'm on a phone Motha F*cka -- heavy Apple themes. Overall, they were pretty entertaining. But there is a new "ultimate dork parody" in the arena that literally blows all the others away. Set to the tune of Jay Z and Alicia Key's "Empire State of Mind", "The New Dork" (brought to us by is by far the most complete and well put together geek parody I've ev...
  • Now you have a real reason to continuously blow those old NES/SNES cartridges…[NES Cartridge Harmonica]
    by Mike
    Posted March 8th, 2010 at 12:44 pm
    It used to be that back in the day, you blew the hell out of those old game cartridges just to get them to work. At times, the sessions could go on for minutes on end, making your face blue, and head light. It was all for the greater good though. Fast forward a decade or two and games are making the move from cartridge to disc to digital download. Cartridges are still alive in today's society but just don't hold the importance they once did. But instead of throwing them out, be resourceful....
