Great Big Story spent some time with stop-motion animator Phil Tippett, who worked on films like Star Wars, RoboCop, and Jurassic Park. For the last 30+ years, Phil has also been working on his passion project, Mad God, a film which he acknowledges he may never finish.
LEGO makes regular size bricks, and larger Duplo bricks for little kids. But the bricks in Matt Denton’s awesome build are way bigger. He used a Lulzbot 3D printer to render all 98 pieces from a classic LEGO Technic go-kart kit, resulting in a 5x larger version of the original.
We recently were given the unique opportunity to fly to Japan to visit Tohoku Pioneer Corporation’s factory. We learned how they design, engineer, and build some of the world’s best sounding speakers, from affordable car speakers to high-end audiophile equipment.
While at UK effects and fabrication shop FBFX, Tested’s Adam Savage had the unique privilege of having his body 3D scanned, then replicated at life size using a 5-axis milling robot which carved his entire body from foam. We only wish they included footage of the robot at work.
Wedge on wheels. Industrial designer Ken Okuyama’s Kode 0 was inspired by the Lancia Stratos Zero, the Lamborghini Countach and other futuristic cars from the 1970’s. Based on a Lamborghini Aventador, its compact and sharp body was made entirely out of carbon fiber.
Microscopic computers and batteries. Wireless power. Affective computing. Isaac Arthur compares the typical day of someone from 1717, 2017 and 2077 to guess what emerging technologies will fundamentally alter our daily routines. Skip to 7:07 for the future.
Builder John Heisz shows us the steps required to transform a couple of simple blocks of wood into a wonderful decorative knife. It might not be a practical tool, but it sure looks pretty. Want to give it a try yourself? Grab the template here. A parts kit is also available.
Mr. Jones Watches‘ wonderful analog timepiece features an fanciful image of a happy tiger, based on a handpainted design by artist Fanny Shorter. The hours are displayed in the moon floating overhead, while the minutes are camouflaged in the tiger’s stripes.
While you think you might eventually get to ground level in Julius Horsthuis‘ short film, it isn’t going to happen. Instead we’re taken on an endless descent into a virtual city created with fractals textured with maps of a city. An entry in Ryuichi Sakamoto’s async film contest.

Just in time for Sonic Mania, Cook and Becker’s Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Art Book has posters, covers, concept art and more from Sega’s archives. It also has a $125 Collector’s Edition that comes with a inner sleeve/book stand and a signed print.
Designer and fabricator Chaz Capobianco shows off a nifty creation, a large, flat spiral cut from a sheet of aluminum, which produces mesmerizing patterns as its center is moved about. It’s sort of like giant, flattened Slinky, and so much cooler than a fidget spinner.
Dad hats never really went away, but now everyone’s wearing them. Shmoxd has a handy guide on how you can take an existing cap, remove the existing embroidery if needed, and add your own design. It takes a bit of time, but it’s cheap and you get a unique cap out of it.
Redditor eames_era_fo_life shows of a cool 3D printed object – in the form of a Yoshimoto Cube – one of those hinged playthings that can be flipped inside-out on itself. The most impressive part – it was printed entirely as a single part. STL file available here.
