Photoshopped or Real?

Those jackasses over at Boing Boing Gadgets have done it again. Posted a rad picture with no description. Look, is this really a camera with a damn garden growing out of the lens? It seems entirely plausible. Then again, it could be Joel photoshopping his pubes into sprouts. Link

LED Bottle Wall

Alex Beim must be a heavy drinker, ’cause I have no idea how he got so many empty bottles for his project. The LED Bottle Wall is a sight that seems appropriate for a Disney World attraction.

Sci-Fi Shades of Sheet Metal

What happens when you give a couple of nerds some copper, a CNC plasma torch and a lot of time? Simple. You wind up with a set of copper masks that look like they’re right out of Star Trek. The shades are actually based on a 2000-year-old design by the Inuit, an artic tribe from back in the day. I’d ...

Toys That Make No Sense: Knit Star Trek Meerkats

I don’t have a problem with Meerkats. They are a fine animal and an all-around interesting species. I just don’t see their place in the Star Trek universe. But, hell, why the heck not, right? Some of you Star Trek purists might be a little turned off, but for the most part, I think these hand knit Star Trek Meerkats ...
