Buy a Brick, Help Build the Nikola Tesla Museum

Nikola Tesla Museum Indiegogo

The Oatmeal’s Matthew Inman is a huge fan of Nikola Tesla. So much so that he’s made several comics explaining the awesomeness of Nikola and his contributions to the field of electricity. Back in 2012, Inman launched a crowdfunding campaign to buy the property of Tesla’s former laboratory. Now he’s back on Indiegogo with another campaign, and this time, he wants to build a museum honoring–you guessed it–Nikola Tesla.

Inman got Elon Musk to donate a million dollars to the cause. Now it’s time up to us to raise the rest. The goal of this campaign is to fund the removal of hazardous materials on the property and the renovation of the Stanford White building.

Donate $125 and your name (or whatever message you choose) will be engraved on a brick that will be used to build the Tesla museum. Pledge larger amounts and you’ll get bigger brick and some extra perks to book. You can check out the campaign on Indiegogo here.

Light Saber Keys

star-wars-lightsaber-house-keys-640x533

We suppose you could paint your own keys and pretend they’re “light saber keys” too. But what’s the fun in that? These blanks have already been painted for you, and they come in KW1/KW10, SC1 or WR5 types. Order a pair and go to your local hardware store to have them cut for you. It’s $10 for a pair, which is really not expensive considering you want them pretty badly.

Gratuitous: Special Barrier Obliterates Truck

truck-explosives

You’re looking at a specially built barrier stopping a truck. That much is obvious. What you may not know is that it’s developed by Texas A&M’s Transportation Institute, under contract by the US State Department and it has only one purpose: to stop explosive-laden trucks travelling up to 50mph dead in their tracks. As you can see, it’s quite effective at that. The idea is to place it in front of high-value targets, like embassies. And as you can probably imagine, survival of the occupants wasn’t part of the engineering equation. Considering they’re hurling themselves at a building in order to blow it up anyway, it would have been silly to even care about this.

There’s no word on where or even if this barrier will ever be deployed, but just knowing it exists can inspire a little bit of confidence that embassies could eventually be protected from the kind of attacks that killed over 200 people in 1998.

LEGO Super Mario Bros. Floor Lamp Can Be Your For A Princely Sum

Everything in life comes at a price. The price you pay for not having the patience or the skill to build a magnificent 27.5″ tall, and 10″ square Super Mario Bros. floor lamp is an outrageous $2,200(USD). And let’s be honest, you know that if you had that kind of disposable income, you’d be it yesterday. Right?

This is a Mario Brothers themed Lego light that can also be used to hold your keys, wallet, sunglasses, whatever. The lights are LEDs and they are operated by remote control. Via the remote you can turn the light on and off, change the color, turn the brightness up or down, and the lights have some color changing effects as well.

It’s made by Etsy seller PugsnLegos, who fortunately has other similar (but smaller) items for sale at more reasonable prices.

Hit the jump for lots more pictures and a video of the thing in action.

They make you laugh. They help you get a point across. They sum whatever it is you’re feeling in a few frames. That’s what GIFs does for you, in a nutshell.

But that’s where the Giffsy keyboard comes in. It’s an app for iOS 8 that lets users insert GIFs that they deem appropriate into the conversation. The app comes with a built-in library of GIFs to choose from while allowing users to save new ones they come across using Safari.

Chargerito Is The World’s Smallest Phone Charger

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 2.01.41 PM

Claims to be the “world’s smallest” anything tend to be taken with a grain of salt around these parts. Looking at the Chargerito, however, it’s really hard to imagine the company being wrong in claiming to have developed the world’s smallest phone charger. Just look at the thing. It measures 2.1″ x 1.3″, which is about the size of a standard car key fob. You can just toss this in your pocket and feel the reassurance of knowing that you’ll be able to top up your battery pretty much anywhere you go.

Chargerito is a $19 pre-order, and comes in Apple’s Lightning cable version or Micro-USB.
