Matt’s Open Source PSP isn’t a PSP, but named for its Sony-like dual controllers; still, it’s a fun DIY project that uses TripleWide Extendershield and Arduino to play two-player Pong.
Gears of War tends to get all the DIY love, but Hyokenseisou’s Resistance 2 Marksman is top-notch cosplay: it sports a working scope, laser guide, ammo counter and ammo clip.
I have a good feeling about this: Star Wars: Uncut gives fans a chance to retell A New Hope; the movie will be split into 472 clips, likely of varying quality but all better than Phantom Menace.
Like a hamster ball but with a Lego Mindstorms NXT inside, Nils Volker’s Spherical Robot is an exercise in gyroscopic driving: it moves by simply rotating its internal mass.
Designed by an MIT student, iDoor is the ultimate iPhone app: it opens a hydraulically actuated dorm room door which also responds to knocks thanks to vibration sensors. Thanks, Jacob!
Ben Heck’s fifth Xbox 360 Portable is lookin’ good: it adds an ethernet port, flush DVD and side panels, volume buttons and more air holes; it’s totally built from scratch. Thanks, Icebone!
Marshall’s Supertendo is a portable SNES that looks pro-enough to have come from Nintendo itself; that’s due to a vacuum-formed case, down to the speaker holes; buy it here.
We’ve seen Twitter hooked up to plants and to your electrical wiring, but this Twitter Pulse Box takes the cake for sheer morbidity: it measures your heartbeat–or the lack thereof.
Shopping cart theft is bad, but LOLrioKART is too full of win: made by MIT students, it’s powered by aircraft NiCd batteries, a 15hp motor, features regenerative braking and goes 45mph.
Potato cannons are a favorite project for weekend warriors, but this Potato Gatling Gun brings serious spud pwnage: for $200, it packs six barrels and can launch tubers up to 400 feet.
The Mini isn’t the newest kid on the block, but Josh D’s Wood iPod Mini gets a drool-worthy makeover; it’s made with Australian red cedar and a working Camphor Laurel clickwheel.
You won’t need to be an origami master to fold this papercraft Ninja Gaiden, which is why it’s full of win: simply download the rar’d PDF here to build yourself an 8-bit diorama.
Don’t let Damien Hirst and BANKSY have all the fun–IARTISTLONDON is selling DIY kits that let you recreate over-hyped, uber-pricey contemporary art pieces on the cheap.

Quirky.com doesn’t just let you buy things–it lets you build them, too; the social product development site lets users submit product ideas, vote on them and earn cash for their help.
That’s no moon, it’s a BBQ grill: Bryan A. Tate’s Death Star Grill is actually two Webers shaped into a fearsome grilling battlestation; Mandolorian-marinated Ewok steaks, anyone?
Though still a work in progress, Tom Banwell’s leather Underground Explorer Helmet is perfect for steampunk spelunkers; it includes a respirator, headlamp and oxygen canister.
Using webcams, Android and Flickr, MOTO Labs’ Home Energy Monitor keeps track of your power usage and pushes it to your Google homepage; it even works with Tweet-A-Watt.
You won’t be rolling up people, cars and cities, but this shiny Katamari Controller by Kellbot is pretty sweet nonetheless; it uses hacked PS2 controllers, Arduino, and an optical mouse.
Finally, a twitter tool with real “utility”: Adafruit Industries’ Tweet-a-Watt tweets your power usage using a Kill-A-Watt monitor and a wireless transmitter; build your own or buy a kit.
We hope you can read fast, because this Ghostmatrix printer uses an array of UV LEDs to scan across phosphorescent paper; the result is a stream of letters that slowly fade.
