If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like if Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy decided to give Pokémon Go a try, this video is probably about as close as you’re going to get. YouTuber Joerg Sprave of The Slingshot Channel has made many crazy weapons in the past, but this time he’s built a Poké Ball Launcher specifically designed to… well, I won’t ruin it for you. Suffice to say, it’s a highly entertaining bit of video, even if it does take a minute or so to get going. Watch it below. [click to continue…]

pokeball case

This simple but brilliant DIY iPhone case design by Jon Cleaver helps you make consistent Poke Ball throws in Pokemon Go. Throw after throw will be dead straight, insuring that you catch all the Pokemon.

If you have access to a 3D printer and own an iPhone 6, you’ll be happy to know that the plans are free to download. Bonus points if you can alter the design to work with other phones. Bonus bonus points if you can integrate the feature with this awesome DIY Pokedex case.

I’m not the type of person to tell a person how they should feel about things, but if you’re addicted to Pokémon Go and you don’t want this Pokédex-shaped phone case with a built-in battery back-up then all of that fresh air must be making you crazy.

Blogger Nick poole debuted his Pokédex case on Sparkfun last week, giving a breakdown of how he made the case using a 3D printer, a lithium cell battery, and a micro-USB cable. It’s pretty snazzy, and you can download the files to print your own case from GitHub. You’ll have to assemble the battery component yourself.

If all that sounds too complicated, you should probably just be patient. A phone case like this makes too much damn sense for Nintendo to pass on making an official version at some point.


rocket lamp

Suddenly, you have a burning desire for a rocket lamp. You probably don’t have any place to put it, but still—you have to have it.

It’s okay, we completely understand.

The first thing you need to know is that this is a DIY project. Still with me? Okay. You’ll need this. You’ll also need the basic instructions outlined on Tinkerings. Godspeed.

This is Redditor BrooklynEWD‘s first attempt at a DIY project. As you can see, he skipped over “festive wreath” and went straight for “spaceship bed”.

You’re looking at the control room he made for his son, which may or may not be dangerous in a shocky/fire hazardy kind of way. Still, it looks ridiculously awesome and he’s working on making improvements to the design.

Take a closer look at the details of the project in the gallery below.

Last year we posted about Miguel Zavala’s quest to create a 3d pattern library of every monster from the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual.

Well, he’s been hard at work since then.

It took a year and a half, but Zavala has finally done it: he created an entire digital library of the Monster Manual, as well as the creatures from Appendix A and the NPCs from Appendix B. That’s 300 figures—and you can download the patterns for free (login required). Thank you Miguel.

carcassonne box

Engineer Andrew Jensen is a huge fan of Carcassonne and, after buying multiple expansions, found himself outgrowing the original cardboard box.

So, he made his own.

Well, he made three actually, but each box was a step toward the perfect Carcassonne container.

He was also kind enough to share pictures of the build which show how he turned a bunch of wooden planks into this beautiful box. Check out the gallery below.
