Pipe Dream: Kozo Lamps

David Benatan, a Tel Aviv-based designer, created lamps made from pipes and other similar hardware. Check out the Kozo lamp, which features washers, nuts, pipes and faucets. And yes, you turn the lamp on and off using the faucet. Pretty damn cool if you ask me. Too bad they’re not readily available at the local IKEA or I’d run and ...

iPhone 3.0 OS Jailbroken

Big surprise, right? QuickPWN, the dudes behind jailbreaks of years past, have managed to create a jailbreak app for the iPhone 3.0 OS, which hasn’t been released yet. In fact, should you have access to the 3.0 developer release, you can download QuickPWN and try it out yourself. While I get the point of jailbreaking a phone for use of ...

Apparently, one Kile Wygle (what a name!) of Ohio was arrested for charges of DUI on a motorized bar stool. As you can see, Mr. Wygle built himself a damn machine from an old Briggs and ...

Snow White Apple Macbook Case Mod

Why is it that women just can’t resist tainted fruit? First, Eve came along and fucked up immortality for the whole human race (thanks a lot, Satan), and then Snow White, for some reason, thought some random apple from a poorly disguised farmer would be totally wholesome and delicious. I think the lesson we’ve learned here is never to accept ...

Gadgets for Beavers: Cellphone Charger Made Out of Wood

Apparently, being in the Russian military isn’t all fun and vodka. Hanging out in the woods all day might sound like a fantastic time (no, it actually really, really doesn’t), but in reality, it’s a lot rougher than you’d expect. Members of a Chechen troupe of troops have resorted to extreme ways of charging their beloved electronic devices. This handmade ...

DIY: Banjo Hero

Students at Rochester Institute of Technology were given the task of coming up with an alternative gaming controller last year. The result of one group of tinkerers is called “Oh No Banjo.” It’s an old wooden banjo hollowed out and gutted to become a Guitar Hero controller. Pretty cool, but from the looks of the pictures, these guys need to ...

GlitchNES: Who Needs Guitars Anyway?

Previously, I showed you how to manipulate video using Pure Data and a MIDI controller. This time around, we’re skipping the computer and all the bullshit. Using a program called glitchNES, you can now alter code in your favorite NES ROM to produce glitchy, hacked video and music. I’d imagine it would be awesome for live performance or video manipulation. ...

Genius: The Cart Bike

I have to admit, I’ve never seen someone attach a grocery cart to the front of a bicycle. Now that I think about it, why hasn’t anyone done this yet? It’s essentially the smartest way to cart around stuff if you don’t drive. You can now go grocery shopping and not have to worry about how much food you can ...
