DIY Wolverine Claws Gives You Wolvie’s Claws Without Breaking Your Skin

You know, every time Logan, AKA Wolverine, unleash his life-taking appendages, he feels pain because popping out those adamantium-coated razor-sharp claws would means breaking his skin from the inside out. Every. Single. Time. With that being said, why would you yourself through the agony like Logan did. I mean, seriously, you don’t have healing ability and there’s no Apocalypse or Magneto to deal with, therefore flesh-slicing blades are not necessary. Besides, you’d be inviting trouble when every time you need pass through security checks. I understand the cool factor and all, but really, you don’t have to. Just shell out a petty sum of $17.90 and you’ll get yourself a set of DIY Logan X-Men Wolverine Automatic Claws like Logan, but less the pain. Problem solved.

And This Is How You Make A Real-Life Pokémon Egg Incubator

I am sure there’s no shortage of Pokémon-related merchandises, officially-licensed or not, in the market, but also, I am quite sure there’s no Egg Incubator among those merchandises. For the uninitiated, the Egg Incubator is a in-game device that incubates a special egg (duh…) that will only hatch if you walk the required distance (but that’s to the cranky GPS system, sometimes you need walk a less or more than the stipulated distance). Anyways, in case you are a huge fan of the Pokémon GO’s awesome egg incubator, then you probably a ‘real’ egg incubator in your life. But just to clear the air, ‘real-life’ means a prop, a replica of the game’s item which don’t actually hatch any Pokémon eggs, or any other worldly eggs, ostrich’s one included.

Original Star Trek Starship Enterprise TV Show Model Restored At SNASM

Star Trek Starship Enterprise maybe a fictional spaceship but it was product of creative imagination of movie makers and a mark of mankind’s desire for deep space exploration, which makes the original starship Enterprise model worthy of a place in the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. And museum it did head to in 1974 when it was donated to by Paramount Pictures to SNASM. The 11-foot, 200 lbs blow-molded plastic and wood model was displayed in several locations in the museum until 2014, when it was removed for a lengthy and painstaking two-year restoration. Though it is worthy to note that the model was “treated” three times, in 1974, 1984 and 1991, while in museum’s possession, but this was by far, the most extensive one.

so what exactly is an ANIMATRONIC DOOR Haunted House Prop? it is a door with a LCD that resembles a window showing a corridor on ‘the other side of the door’. a dude that appears to be an axe murderer walks up towards the window and as you might have guessed, stares at you in a very creepy way and then proceed to ‘break the door’ with his axe. a cleverly designed mechanism runs in sync with the psycho axe-wielding killer’s axing actions, shakes the door and ‘dents’ start to materialize on the door. how’s that for a 3D haunted house prop? apparently, a firm by the name of Pale Night Productions has created a similar prop some two years ago. so whether is this a rip-off or not, is entirely up to you to decide.

so you adore everything Portal? besides creating your own Portal Gun, how about adding a Portal Turret to your collection of DIY replicas? yes, the deadly turret in the game can be yours if you closely follow the lengthy process as shared by one CitizenSnips aka Ryan Palser, an animator in the gaming industry by day and a hobby prop builder by night. Ryan’s creation is not just all looks, it can actually safe guard your room. while it can’t spray bruising pellets or blast out eye-blinding lasers on your intruder, at least its build-in motion sensor with a bunch of electronic circuitry (in which, Arduino is also used) will trigger the Portal Turret to ‘talk’, thus alerting you of anyone trying to sneak up on you while you are intently playing your Portal game.
