Miniature BBQ Grill May Not Be Practical, But It Sure Looks Like Fun

Not everyone has the luxury of a spacious balcony or backyard. When you don’t have the aforementioned and still yearn for a good BBQ, what do you do? Well, easy. Just do what Mr Useful did: make yourself a mini BBQ grill. Now, to be clear, this DIY project is not exactly practical in the sense that grilling a pair of hot dogs at one time isn’t going to feed the army fast enough, but it sure looks like a hell lot of fun.

Chainsaw Desk Lamp Is Just About The Coolest Thing To Happen To A Lamp

”Do you wake up, worrying about your lamp that it does not have enough testosterone and doesn’t represent you as a man?” Those were the words from our favorite madcap British garage inventor, plumber-turn-YouTube celebrity Colin Furze. So, what did he do about the lack of manliness in a lamp? Well, he fuses a chainsaw with a lamp to create a Chainsaw Lamp.

Colin Furze Turns Junior’s Skatescooter Into A Jet Powered Ride

There are micro scooter, AKA skatescooter, and then there is this “Jet Powered” micro scooter whipped up by plumber-turn-mad garage inventor Colin Furze. The Jet Powered Micro Scooter is sure to put a smile on the face of any kid who is brave enough to step onboard and it certainly put a smile on Furze’s little one. Clearly, he is one adrenalin junkie in the making. Anywho, this Jet Powered Micro Scooter is not actually jet engine powered. That would be madness because it will be way over-powered for kids of any age. Hell, it would be potentially catastrophic even for grown-ass person too (but that won’t stop the mad Brit garage inventor from trying).

Someone Made A Chainmaille Octopus Hood Because, She Can

Well, someone has decided to make a wearable Chainmaille Octopus Hood much to our bewilderment. There are a few reasons why we are amused by it. Firstly, it wouldn’t be practical as a protection (chainmaille AKA chainmail is, you know, medieval stuff) and secondly, it looks like it will hinder the wearer in a fight, which is what chainmaille is essentially designed for, because of those tentacles. However, if Davy Jones ever decided that his head should be protected, this would probably be it. He will likely the only beings who will appreciate what Chicago-based artists, jewelry and fashion designer Vanessa Walilko has created.

Believe It Or Not, This Knife Is Made From Regular Plastic Food Wrap

There is a Chinese saying that goes like “if there is perseverance, even a rod can be grounded into a needle” (basically, “as long as there is perseverance, strokes fell great oaks”). Well, you know what? It couldn’t be more true as demonstrated by Twitter user Kiwamikouba (YouTuber Kiwami Japan). Not only did Kiwamikouba prove that with perseverance, he can turn pretty much anything (including food!) into very sharp knives, he also demonstrated that everything in the kitchen has the potential to be turned into a knife – with a lot of time, that is.

Rideable Electric TIE Fighter Is Every Star Wars Fans Dream Come True

Furze and Burton may have built a full-size Kylo Ren TIE Fighter which a grown-ass man can get in and pretend to fly it. Allan Carver’s TIE Fighter may not fly. It may not even of life-size (it is not small either though; it is about 1/3rd scale), but one thing for sure is, it is totally mobile and it can also fit a grown-ass man inside, albeit with not much room to so much as to wiggle. Built with reference to a vintage Kenner toy, Carver’s electric TIE fighter is driven by electric wheelchair motors and features a foam body over a custom steel chassis.
