So what do you do when the super mutants and the deathclaws come a-knockin’? Well, you head down to the safety of your nearest Vault-Tec Vault, of course! If you don’t have a vault of your own, you can always build one like TreyHill did. The dedicated gamer wanted a way to keep his gaming room safe for when the bombs finally drop.

Though, for the record, I don’t think that door could stop a deathclaw. Just sayin’.

A: Maybe?

inflatable jabba

Put him on the lawn for Halloween with a Han Solo in carbonite graphic on your front door. When Christmas rolls around, just put a Santa hat on him. And don’t even get me started on the cosplay potential.

Indeed, the possibilities are endless when you’re the proud owner of a 6 ft. tall x 10 ft. long inflatable Jabba the Hutt. It even has a a built-in blower fan to get Jabba up and running quickly.

Oh Hallmark, thank you for this festive new Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan ornament. It plays “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few” quote—and that gives me an idea.

I’m going to put up a second “despair” tree this year, complete with this ornament, a Weeping Angel topper and tentacles.

netflix switch

Y’know how Staples has their “Easy” button? Well, Netflix’s PR department has just unveiled “The Switch” (but everyone is calling it a “Netflix and Chill” button, naturally) during this year’s World Maker Faire. It’s a one-button option to a relaxing evening. One button that can dim your lights, switch your phone into “do not disturb” mode, order food, and queue up a show on Netflix.

No word on whether they can help you decide what you want to watch or eat, but I’m guessing you can add a randomizer for those times.

Want one? At this point you’ll have to make your own. Netflix has broken down everything you’ll need for the project.

landspeeder bed

Apparently Redditor Ghostfaceace made this landspeeder bed for his son. Another awesome nerdy parent with skills.

Honestly, I’m pretty sick of feeling jealous of every kid with a bedroom that has a Millennium Falcon cockpit, a Portal Test Chamber, or whatnot.

I’m even jealous of this friggin’ cat.
