LEGO Go-Kart

LEGO Go-Kart

We’ve seen several life-size vehicles built from LEGO bricks, but most of them look as costly and complicated as the real cars they’re based on.

Super Mario Bros. Ragtime Style

Super Mario Bros. Ragtime Style

If the Nintendo Entertainment System came out in the 1920s instead of the 1980s, the music its games played might have sounded a bit like the ragtime jazz piano arranged and played brilliantly here by musician Scott Bradlee.

Weezer Does Lithium

Weezer Does Lithium

(PG-13: Language) During their recent tour dates in Brazil, Weezer performed a great cover of Nirvana’s 1991 track Lithium.

Cardboard Jeep Wrangler

Cardboard Jeep Wrangler

Off-road vehicles are designed to be capable of handling extremely rugged terrain.

Imperial March Goes Synthwave

Synthwave duo Litiowave envisions what John Williams’ Imperial March (aka Darth Vader’s Theme) might have sounded like if it came out in the early 1980s rather than in 1977, giving the track a new neon-lit electronic sound.

100-Loop Marble Run

100-Loop Marble Run

Scott’s Marble Runs knows a thing or two about making really long tracks for his marbles to zoom down. This time, he created an epic, multi-story run that has dozens upon dozens of loops, and relies heavily on gravity to make it work. Nice catch there at the end too, Scott.
