Spider-Man: Homecoming (Trailer 2)

Metal Gear LEGO

“A LEGO Hind D?!” YouTuber Bearly Regal is recreating Metal Gear Solid‘s Shadow Moses Island in the sandbox game LEGO Worlds. Here’s what he has so far. It’s amazing how simply adding in the PlayStation boot sequence makes it so much better.

Remix in the Matrix

“Your weakness is not your technique. It is doubt, and disbelief.” Eclectic Method chopped up bits of dialogue and sound effects from The Matrix to create this groovy EDM track that gives us another reason to watch some of our favorite movie moments of all time.

Dark Knight Rises: What Went Wrong

Wisecrack convincingly argues that the Nolan brothers bit off way more than they could chew for the Dark Knight trilogy’s finale. Despite being nearly 3 hours long, the movie didn’t have enough time to be both a remake of A Tale of Two Cities and a conclusion to the trilogy.

Transboard Transporter 2.0

The latest version of Mercane Wheels‘ personal transportation device uses a stable, yet nimble 3-wheel setup for easy riding, a quick folding mechanism, a powerful 500-watt motor that speeds you along up to 22 mph, and an 8.6Ah battery for up to 25 mi of cruising range.

Fun with Liquid Metal

Rinsten Spring

An easy to install shock-absorbing seat post for practically any kind of bicycle. The Rinsten Spring absorbs vibrations from all three dimensions and can be easily adjusted to suit your needs. It’s available in a variety of colors.

Virgin Fibre: Car Chase

A fantastic commercial for Virgin’s high-speed data service, which mashes up all kinds of movie genres in a single scene. It plays out in a tunnel straight out of Star Wars, but features all kinds of anachronistic and misplaced characters in a thrilling chase sequence.

Making Robots from Soda Cans

ApolloCrowe from Carbide 3D uses one of their Nomad desktop CNC machines to slice up soda cans, and transforms them into parts for a pair of robot sculptures. There’s a lot of handwork involved after the aluminum is cut, but it’s still cool to watch the machine work its magic.

A winner of Android Japan’s Experiments: Object contest. Kosho Tsuboi’s Magic Calendar is a large digital calendar. Tsuboi’s prototype uses a low reflection display, but he hopes that in the future there will be an E-ink display that looks and feels like paper.

Googly-eyed Stubby Squid

“It’s like some little kid dropped their toy.” A team of oceanic researchers on the E/V Nautilus came across this unusual sea creature while on a mission, but rather getting all serious and sciency, they spent their time poking fun at the little guy’s looks.

The Book Goose

“No longer must man look in two separate locations for literature and fowl!” The fountain at Station Park in Farmington, Utah has six whimsical bronze sculptures. Or so they say. As far as EvilLairProductions is concerned, at least one of them tells a horrifying tale.

DIY Jurassic Park Amber Cane Replicas
