Do You Know You Can 3D Print A Triangular Bladeless Fan? Yes You Can!

It is no secret that you can cobbled up a homemade Dyson-inspired bladeless fan using nothing but common parts you can find lying a home, albeit it being a rather crude contraption. However, if you have a 3D printer, South African Thingiverse user, Daniel Mitchell, will show you how to make a bladeless fan the high-tech way. Mind you though. Mitchell’s bladeless fan is no Dyson copies; it sports a unique triangular shape the British electrical giant never adopt. Continue reading Do You Know You Can 3D Print A Triangular Bladeless Fan? Yes You Can!

Alien Facehugger CPAP Ventilator Mask Won’t Lay Eggs, It Delivers Air

Sleep apnea is no laughing matter. It can kill. But this sleep apnea relieving hardware gave us a good laugh. What you see here is not a real-life Alien facehugger attack. It is a custom CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) ventilator mask by sleep apnea patient/tinker gnome Jared Gray. Gray figured, if he is going to put himself through a CPAP “torture machine,” he might as well make it fun and by Gray’s definition, ‘fun’ is having the notorious facehugger hugging his face. Continue reading Alien Facehugger CPAP Ventilator Mask Won’t Lay Eggs, It Delivers Air

Dude Created A Custom Electric Guitar With 1200 Colored Pencils

One-of-a-kind electric guitars are not new. We have seen some pretty impressive custom guitar bodies thus far. No. Flying V isn’t one-of-a-kind guitar, but cardboard, “molten lava,” and skateboard guitar bodies are, and so is this: 1200 colored pencils guitar body. Redditor (Rockmann1), Imgur user (flyjumper) and YouTuber Burls Art has built himself a Fender Stratocaster-style electric guitar that has a body crafted out of 1,200 Crayola Colored Pencils.

Jaws-inspired Baby Cot Is The Coolest Thing Any Dad Could Give His Baby

If you have a baby, getting him or her a regular baby cot is possibly the most meh thing to do. If you do that, you are just another Dad. Nothing wrong with that; it’s just that you won’t be as cool. Sculptor Joseph Reginella, on the other hand, elevated himself to the cool Dad status when he sculpted a Jaws-inspired Baby Cot for his little one. Needless to say, Reginella is a super fan of Jaws (1975, Universal Pictures), which was why he made this super cool baby cot.

71-Year-Old French Is Crossing Atlantic In A Barrel-Like Vessel

Attempts to cross the vast expanse of oceans, traveling from one continent to another, using anything other than commercial means are not new, but an attempt on a vessel with zero propulsion? Well, that is new (and crazy, if I might add). Regardless of the lunacy, such is what French gramp, 71-year-old Jean-Jaques Savin, is currently doing. And I can tell you this: if we were to post about this a month late, it’d still be news because, current. Continue reading 71-Year-Old French Is Crossing Atlantic In A Barrel-Like Vessel

Bladeless Drone Is Impressive, But Not Quite Bladeless As It Says It Is

One drone enthusiast/aspiring aerospace engineer by the name of Stefano Rivellini claims that he has built the “world’s first bladeless drone.” But before you get excited, this ain’t no Dyson’s bladeless technology which the British company has used in its hairdryer and various fans; in fact, it is not quite bladeless as it says it is. Instead of the usual exposed rotor blades, Rivellini uses four ducted fans buried inside carbon fiber tube ducting. Here’s the official description: Continue reading Bladeless Drone Is Impressive, But Not Quite Bladeless As It Says It Is

Mark Rober Pranked Porch Thieves With Glitter Bomb Trap And Fart Spray

When packages left on the porch keep getting stolen… regular folks would have a security camera system setup to nab the thief. Meanwhile a former NASA engineer designed and made a Glitter Bomb Trap to teach these thieves a colorful and (nasty) odor-filled lesson. The engineer is Mark Rober, the same person who made the world’s largest NERF gun and the world’s largest Super Soaker. Before his engineer mind kicked in, Rober did what any folk would do; he recorded the deed, brought it to the police, but police can’t do anything about it because, America. Continue reading Mark Rober Pranked Porch Thieves With Glitter Bomb Trap And Fart Spray

Star Destroyer Halloween Costume Is Something I Never Thought Possible

Most Halloween costumes are based on creatures, personalities, and maybe robots, but we never heard or seen any kid dressing up as a vehicle, let alone a spaceship, for trick-or-treat. Well, that’s until now. Andrew Guy is a loving father who did just that, i.e. he made a vehicle costume. Guy built an Imperial Star Destroyer costume over a bicycle for his son Aidan. As you can see, while it may not be practical, this ‘costume’ is pretty damn impressive with the lights and all. Continue reading Star Destroyer Halloween Costume Is Something I Never Thought Possible

If You Want This Gorgeous Sound Bar, You Have To Build It Yourself

Instructables user ralf_k is an engineer by day and self-described “noisy neighbor by night” who wanted a modern looking sound bar that isn’t plasticky. I am not sure if there is such sound bar out there. Even there is, I am sure it is going to cost a fortune. Anyways, he set out to make one and the result is this: a gorgeous plywood and MDF sound bar. ralf_k has share with the Internet how he did it on his Instructables page. While we do not know how it sounds, the aesthetic has already won us over. Plus, with two tweeters, two woofers, two amplifiers, four passive radiators, and a programmable Digital Signal Processor (DSP) to boot, how bad can it be right?

Child Pulling Off A Carry Her Own Head Costume Is Next Level Of Creepy

Well, if this isn’t the creepiest child Halloween costume ever. Headless costumes are not new, but when a child pulls it off, it is a whole new level of creep. It reminds me of Japanese horror flicks that involves child spirits. Mum Krystel Hwang dressed up her sweet daughter, Maya, in a flowered dress, which was nothing shocking until you realize this child was without a head. She was “carrying” her own head. With an appropriate makeup, along with not-so-subtle blood spill off from the supposed “severed” neck, the effect was pretty damn dramatic.
