Let me introduce you to the awesomeness that is Hero Lights.

Each Hero Light is made to order with laser cut and engraved acrylic, RGB LEDs, and a hand-cut pine base. The LEDs give you the option to not only vary your color combinations, but control flashing, strobe, and dimming or fading.

In other words, you could get a few and have one heck of a nerd party.

Harry Potter fan Meredith McCardle had a brilliant idea for decorating a wall in her home.

Did I mention that she’s an author? Because that fact begins to put this project into perspective.

Using a projector she borrowed from an elementary school, McCardle traced the first page of Harry Potter on her wall then painted each letter with a high quality paint so she wouldn’t have to do a second coat.

Simple. Genius. I love everything about this idea.

death star fire pit

We’ve seen Death Star fire pits before. The idea appears to have originated with the folks behind KGFirePits on Etsy. You can purchase the original design there, but the version pictured here was produced by a high school welding class—and it has an awesome, upgraded look.

I once made a toolbox in high school…and a plaque. Clearly I attended the wrong class, in the wrong school, in the wrong decade.

To further stoke the fires of my jealousy, this project was auctioned off and the winner GAVE it to Redditor alphacodemonkey as a gift.

Nope, didn’t sell it for thousands of dollars—just GAVE IT AWAY. It’s like “Hey, you want a Death Star fire pit? I don’t have room for this in my backyard. I need to make room for a boring patio set.”


Anyway, check out more pictures of this glorious creation spewing flames in the gallery below.

dino lamps

Dinosaurs roam the earth once more thanks to a controversial cloning method that involves blending dinosaur DNA with origami and a bag of Skittles. After a heavy blast of radiation, this is the surprising and unholy result.

Seriously though—colorful dinosaur lamps. I want them all. Then I’ll get a giant unicorn light, put them all together and see what happens.
