Turn Your iPhone/iPod Touch Into A MIDI Controller

The best things in life are free, no question about it.

You Can’t Do That On Television

Know why? Because this is a plush TV set. It’s simply gorgeous. Color test on the screen, white bezel – fantastic. No one knows who made it and no one will ever find out. That’s because Marc Summers has a grudge. A grudge against the world. Happy Friday. Link [via]

“Is That Rob Halford?”

Straight out of the cover of a Judas Priest album, this “thing” looks to be a steampunk steed from Hell. Dubbed “Lrry,” it’s a rideable motorcycle/robo-horse constructed by the Mutoid Waste Company in London. The best part about it is it’s 100% recycled. Biker gangs will be running for the hills.

DIY: Paper Airplane Launcher

Now, this is interesting. An electric paper plane launcher kit that you put together yourself. Too bad the entire point of crafting a paper airplane is to wing it at someones head.
