Now that the third Thor standalone movie is in full swing and doing brilliantly in the box office, we thought we’d let you in on this wonderful DIY project from a few months ago I found stashed in my “Watch Later” YouTube list. I am not entirely sure, but I think this might have been the first in the market. Dubbed the Mighty Mjölnir Headphone and USB Dock, which translates to a pretty dang awesome headphone stand and USB hub, this wonderful desktop gadget accessory is created by YouTube Patrick Soriano and it is exactly what it says it is: a headphone stand and a gathering of some USB ports in the likeness of the God of Lightning’s mighty hammer.

Cheap DIY Hack Gives A Garage Sale Fridge A New Stunning Look

When you pick up something from a garage sale, you will accept it as-is. Hardly will anybody ever thought of doing something to the newly acquired pre-loved items.

Armed with a roll of adhesive vinyl in copper she picked up from Kmart, she proceeds to give the new old fridge a decidedly luxe but affordable makeover. The result, as you can see, is pretty stunning. Continue reading Cheap DIY Hack Gives A Garage Sale Fridge A New Stunning Look

In fact, if you are hell bent of making a statement with your mundane van, those are the only two mods you should consider. Period.

Everyone’s Favorite Geek Girl Made A Robot That Feeds Her Soup

Simone Giertz makes robots which are mostly quirky and pretty much useless. What she makes is like the western version of the 101 Unuseless Japanese Inventions. Despite so, she is a heroine to us. From between the face slapping alarm clock we last featured here and today, she has created a lot more other weird robotic contraptions – all of which are homemade, of course, and the homemade soup-serving robot you see here is her newest endeavor. As expected, this robot is every bit of the weird and also expectedly, hilarity ensues when the robot starts doing its thing.

Halloween decorations have gone from the creepy, ghouls-themed to wait, what? Star Wars-themed? Yup. That is exactly what one man did on the front lawn of his property. Nick Meyer, an elevator mechanic, has built a towering 19-foot tall AT-AT replica modeled after a toy he bought.
