I Do: Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring

Doctor Who TARDIS Engagement Ring

 

Would you say yes to this? This Doctor Who-inspired TARDIS engagement ring will make most girls happy (provided the right man is asking), but it’ll make Whovians over the moon with joy because it’s, well, a TARDIS ring. The double band is generously studded with diamonds, while the miniature TARDIS itself is covered in blue sapphires and even more diamonds.

The design, which was originally posted on Etsy, has since been sold, but fret not. You should be able to ask your jeweller to come up with an inspired design, if you want one.

Bricasso Made From Legos Prints Lego Art

Bricasso

 

You don’t have to be a fan of Lego to appreciate the awesomeness of the Bricasso. It’s an aptly-named printer that prints Lego mosaic art, and the coolest part is that it’s also built using Lego bricks. The Bricasso is the work of Jason Allemann who’s as good in coding as he is in building Lego-tastic works of art.

The Bricasso uses the Mindstorms EV3 to scan the images to be Lego-lized. It then picks up bricks which have been placed in a gravity feed system and “prints” them on a base plate.

Spivo Camera Pole Pivots 180 Degrees At The Touch Of A Button

spivo-1

Ok, so everyone is sort of tired of seeing selfie sticks, but Spivo is a little different. First off it’s not quite a selfie stick, since it has no trigger; it’s a camera pole meant to carry something like a GoPro. But unlike similar devices currently on the market, Spivo features a button that rotates the camera 180 degrees back and forth in a split-second. If you’re a fan of action footage, you’ll know that sometimes the action isn’t entered around you; it’s nice to have to option to point forwards as easily as backwards. They come in 3 lengths: 12″, 18″, and 26″, and cost $49 at any of them.

This $500 NES Was Inspired By Leica, Aims For Similar Craftsmanship

1-8.0

You can get a simple emulator and run NES ROMs on pretty much any old machine. But the Analogue Nt isn’t any ole’ machine. It’s a super high-end gaming system that happens to only play NES cartridges. It’s crafted from a solid block of aluminum, and sells for $499. If you want HDMI output and hardware upscaling, that’ll be an extra $79, please. For that price you get a printed circuit board so lavishly designed that it costs four times as much as a regular PCB to produce.

It’s powered by original Ricoh CPU and PPU chips that have been salvaged from a batch of disused Famicom systems. The optional, internal HDMI adapter, meanwhile, is designed to optimize image quality on modern TVs — lead video hardware engineer Kevin Horton says it “upscales digitally, directly from the PPU and CPU. This means no lag and zero signal degradation.” There’s even a built-in scanline generator, if the resulting image is too clean for you.

Of course if you’re going to spend upwards of $500 on a retro gaming system, we imagine you’re a pretty big fan of retro gaming. Or you like finely crafted products in your household. Either way, you can pre-order now and expect to get your system by July of this year.

MotorMood1

 

It’s a jungle out there. Some people drive way too fast (or way too slow), while others overtake and cut lanes like there’s no tomorrow.

You can flash your headlights or raise your hand to say a quick “thank you,” or you can literally send a smile their way with MotorMood. With the push of a button, you can trigger the MotorMood that’s attached on your rear window to display a happy face.Continue Reading

‘Project:HumanHelmet': Custom-Made Helmets Of Your Head

Custom Head Helmets

Not a fan of the helmets currently available to motorists? Then you should have a word with Jyo John Mulloor, who disliked them so much that he sought to design his own. Dubbed Project:HumanHelmet, his lightweight helmet features a very unusual (and personal) design: your own head. An image of your head is basically taken and used to “design” the helmet, so it’ll look like you’re not wearing one.

Enforcers checking if you’ve got a helmet on or not might not be fans of this, but motorists who appreciate a unique design might.
