Fan Mail: DIY Pencil iPhone Stand

Here’s a neat iPhone stand made out of pencils and rubber bands. It resembles the old Appleworks icon a bit, don’t you think? It was made by Gearfuse reader Roland Hutchinson who decided he’d rather be watching videos at work then actually working. Nice work, mate. Link

The Real Deal: Portal Gun

I don’t know what to say. What do you think I should say? Look at this fucking gun. It’s a life-size 1:1 replica of the Portal gun. Like dead on to every detail. It even glows blue. What the fuck is up with that? Some chick made it for cosplay. Yeah, cosplay. Such a waste… At least it blows previously ...

Everyone Knows LEGO Figures Smoke Pot and Play Jazz

Or at least I’m assuming that’s the deal with Michael Jasper’s jazzy LEGO creation, which features Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon jamming out. My favorite part, aside from the well-crafted instruments, is the hair and face of the bass player. Look at that blonde doo! And that smile is too devilish for words. They must have that reefer madness that’s ...

Does That Snowblower Have A HEMI In It?

No, but you’re close. This fucking bulldozer-like Hellchild of a machine is the work of Kai Grundt, a Canadian Metalworker who threw a V8 engine in a snow-blowing machine. Why the excess power?

I Can Haz Cheeseburger Bed

The cat is back! Check out this wacky bed that’s shaped just like a cheeseburger. It was obviously created by some Internet-loving hipsters who had enough time and skill to craft such a bed. I mean look at the cheese. It’s a blanket! In my opinion, the best part of this bed is the top bun, which looks all too ...

Yummy Gummi Chandelier

I like gummi bears. I like ’em a lot. Good thing artist and designer YaYa Chou likes gummi bears, too. She makes a slew of gummi bear goodies like this chandelier by linking them together with monofilament wire. The end product is a kick ass light source that’s good enough to eat. Other gummi bear works of YaYa Chou include ...

Homeless Chateau

If you’re broke and squatting in an abandoned warehouse, you might as well make the best of it. Such is the mindset behind James Westwater’s “sustainable organic greenery domicile” better known as the Homeless Chateau. It has a small cooking and toilet area (gross), storage and a place to sleep – the essentials of any home. The caveat is that ...

Processing Sound and Audio With The Arduino

It’s no news that we’re Arduino nuts here at Gearfuse, but lately, we haven’t seen anything that has really pushed the boundaries of the popular microcontroller. Now some smarty pants named Martin has come along with a schematic that allows real-time audio processing with the Arduino. This means you can create guitar FX pedals, equalizers and a whole lot of ...
