You can tell someone is a superfan when they take something fairly simple an convenient and spend vast amounts of time (and money) making it complex and inconvenient so that it aligns with their fandom. Such is the case with this guy, who built a Raspberry Pi-based home automation system that responds to songs played on an ocarina. I’ll admit, it is very impressive—but I can’t even stand carrying keys around. [click to continue…]

Do you enjoy chaos? Are you willing to spend $65 or more to terrify your friends? If so, you should consider filling your firepit with Myard DELUXE Imitated Human Skull Logs. Apparently, the skulls are made from heat-tolerant ceramic and lava granules, layered over a steel structure, so they’re fireproof and heavy enough to stay put in the wind.

Expand your Star Wars toolkit with the Millennium Falcon multi-tool. It’s a useful thing to have when your ship breaks down…again.

The Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit comes equipped with four hex keys, two screwdrivers (one flat-head, one philips), and an adjustable wrench built into the ship’s helm. The hex keys store away nicely in the back underside of the ship which is sealed shut with the power of magnets. Screwdrivers tuck away in the sides, and the wrench is adjusted by a wheel located in the center of the Falcon.
