You’ve seen Poké Balls, but never like this. Jasper Hams of MasenkoProps has crafted this “Monster Ball” display from polyurethane and aluminium. The ball has a visible interior which looks sufficiently high-tech, and comes in a neat display case emblazoned with the logo of Silph Co., one of the technology giants of the Pokémon world.

This piece is, of course, non-functional – you’re not going to be able to catch parrots and the like using this thing. The hinge doesn’t move, and the Poké Ball is designed to stay mounted to the base and inside its container, so it’s for ornamental display only. But gosh, what a display.

You can purchase it directly from Jasper’s Etsy store for $133.55 USD, though as they’re made to order we expect there’ll be a bit of a wait thanks to the press attention. Check out more photos of this magnificent piece below. [click to continue…]

itrn_sw_jawa_stone_lawn_orn_16in

It appears that Jawas have grown tired of the desert, deciding instead to hang out on your lush green lawn. Curiously, all of the other lawn ornaments in the neighborhood have gone missing. Rumor has it that a Monster Gnome is in the works, and everyone is a little on edge about it. The fact that your 16-inch Jawa has glowing (solar powered) eyes isn’t helping.

It appears that the artists and writers at Bungie up and decided to make a children’s book based on Destiny called, appropriately enough, D Is For Destiny. It’s a clever strategy. The time that you should be spending with your kids instead of playing video games can now be spent talking to your kids about video games. Brilliant!

From the world of Destiny, this rhyming alphabet book created by the artists and writers at Bungie takes young readers on a voyage through a universe of adventure. From Four-Armed Fallen to the Mysteries of Mercury and the Moon, D is for Destiny makes exploring the far reaches of the solar system as easy as A, B, C.

Over the years LEGO have released a lot of really cool robotics kits, ranging from simple programmable motors to more complex creations. One thing they haven’t done, however, is produce LEGO drones. Surprising, considering how popular and prolific drones have become over the last few years.

Thankfully, Flybrix have stepped in to fill the gap. These kits ship with instructions and all the LEGO bricks you need to knock out a working drone which can be remote-controlled via their iOS Android app. Not only that, but you can customize them with the LEGO bricks you already have. If you fancy slapping additional rotors to give it more lift, you can absolutely do that as well.

Flybrix kits can be purchased from their website – the basic kit costs $149, while the deluxe kit (which comes with its own dedicated remote control) is $189. See Flibrix in action below. [click to continue…]
