Just look at this gorgeous periodic table lamp! So colorful. So sciencey. It’s even up to date! Instructables user makendo notes:

“This instructable documents my efforts to reimagine a 3D periodic table of the elements, using modern making methods. It’s based on the structure of a chiral nanotube, and is made from a 3D printed lattice, laser cut acrylic, a lazy susan bearing, 118 sample vials and a cylindrical lamp.”

You know those D20 string lights we featured over the weekend? These dragon ornaments from Etsy seller Aelia Petro would be a perfect match…if she had them in stock. Hopefully she will replenish them sometime soon because I’m fully committed to doing a fantasy-themed tree next year.

Over the weekend, full trailers for The Mummy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 dropped. You can check them both out below, along with the Easter egg video for GOTG: Vol. 2. They look great – but if I didn’t know better I would have thought that the Mission: Impossible series took a really unexpected turn for the sixth installment. [click to continue…]

Man, I wish I had these D20 String Lights when I put up my tree the other day. Part of my brain is like “there’s still time!” while the other part is like “re-stringing lights would be a pain in the ass!”.

Okay laziness, you win this round.

If you’re more ambitious than I am, now is the time to grab them. These are the kind of string lights you can have fun with year round. The bulbs can be easily replaced and the lights can be used indoors or out. [click to continue…]

On December 5th, Disney is going to transform Epcot’s Spaceship Earth into the Death Star to celebrate Star Wars and the release of Rogue One. It’s going to be done using digital projections, but still!

Unfortunately, the event is invite-only and all of the spaces have been filled. Dammit. Transforming into the Death Star is Spaceship Earth’s destiny! There should be something like this year round at the upcoming Star Wars land expansion.
