Extreme Sheepherding: Now With More LEDs and Less Anal!

I don’t trust sheepherders. While I’m sure that many of them live an honorable and hardworking existence, I can’t help but shake the idea that most herding-peoples have some sort of animal-sex fetish. I know, it’s a problem. I’ll be seeking therapy soon. I blame the media. Now, extreme sheepherding on the other hand is a lamb of a different ...

Smashing Pumpkins: The Video Game?

But Pumpkin fans continue to worship the band’s original genius. YouTube user elmacbee created this ultra-fake Smashing Pumpkins video game, which is pretty much just ...

Turn Your Roomba Into a Horny Toad

Mmm, I’m not sure how I feel about this “mod” for the Roomba. While the furry cover for the vacuum is welcome, the strange look this toad has on its face is somewhat like the Mona Lisa’s smile: creepy and mysterious. That’s probably ’cause it’s made with real glass eyes. I get the whole toad thing, but how come I’m ...

Smapler: Snap-on Arduino Design

The Smapler is quite the instrument. First off, you’ll have to build it using your trusty Arduino since it’s a shield that works in tandem with the microcontroller. It’ll allow you to build some unique and interesting instruments as well. This new snap-on panel really gives it more of an instrument-like feel though, don’t you think? It features 4 knobs, ...

Watchmen Minifigs

If there’s one thing we go ga-ga over here at Gearfuse, it’s a kickass set of LEGOs. This Watchmen set? No exception. It was created by Jordan Schwartz and the neat thing is, each character is made from original LEGO parts. That’s right. No hand-painted nonsense here, folks. Just good ol’ fashioned tinkering with LEGOs. I’m personally a fan of ...
